The nation's top telecommunications regulating official visits Springfield

A little rain did not stop Trump-appointed Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai from climbing into a bucket loader and being hoisted to the top of a wireless hotspot in Springfield, Vermont, Wednesday.


"Fantastic visits in Vermont today! In Springfield, Perkinsville, Greensboro Bend, & St. Johnsbury, we heard about challenges of building broadband networks & benefits in rural communities, from online education to anti-addiction treatment. Can-do spirit in Green Mountain State!" –Ajit Pai

    I'm not a fan of Pai's program. The change to how the internet works, i.e. the end of net neutrality, was unnecessary for everyone, except for business moguls who long desired a model designed to make ordinary internet users pay more for what they'd always gotten for less, similar to how all other commodities are now marketed. Btw,For that repeal, the NRA gave Pai a "gift".

    1. Yes! Government of the wealthy, by the wealthy, and for the wealthy. America is truly Great Again!

  2. Trump supports the little guy. Just ask his fans with their little minds.

  3. If you have any extra money please help to rebuild any possible damage to the National Golf Course in Charlotte NC. And if you have any extra Farts send them to the White House, care of Donny's Methane retrieval program.


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
