Cartoon on the Internet being regulated. (February 2, 2006 9:31 PM)

I think that the "regulation" of the internet referred to in this cartoon, drawn during this time period, is going to be applicable to ANY time period, any Presidency, majority shift of power that takes place in Congress, or the Supreme Court, for the so called "foreseeable future".
Which is a term that I've been having a hard time defining as of late.

Since the internet is becoming (some would argue that it has already become) our primary source of information and means of communication in our society, then the government "regulation" is here to stay. So to define the term "foreseeable future" in terms of regulating the internet it would be "without an end in sight".

I just hope they don't get the idea that they own it, and then feel obligated to screw it up. With good intentions and potential revenue in mind of course.
