Internet's "Grandfather" Skeptical of Neutrality

In a debate yesterday between professor David Farber, called the “grandfather” of the Internet for his pioneering work which provided much of the groundwork for later innovators, and Vinton Cerf, “father” of the Internet and chief Internet Evangelist at Google, Farber expressed a healthy dose of skepticism towards government involvement in the Internet, fearing that it would be a small step to the government regulating content as other nations, such as China, do. "Given a foot in the door, I think that door will open," he said.

A Hefty Slice of Pork for the Metro

These days, it seems as if pork spending goes just about everywhere. Mariachi music in Nevada middle schools, a bridge to nowhere in Alaska, and thousands of other pet projects continue to fatten the federal budget deficit as Members of Congress look appeal to every special interest in their constituencies.  The latest project to be added to the list is the D.C. Metro, which looks to capture $1.5 billion in federal dollars if Rep.

Parents See Equity in Vouchers, Not More Spending

The Philadelphia Inquirer has an article about an interesting lawsuit in New Jersey.  12 parents have sued 25 failing school districts in New Jersey and the state commissioner of education for failing to provide the “thorough and efficient education” guaranteed in the state’s constitution.  Multiple lawsuits in other states against have been filed in the past, but Crawford v. Davy breaks with the disappointing and flawed tradition that mistakenly believes that an indefinite increase in money for schools that do not serve students’ needs will magically provide a better education for students without doing the hard work of looking at how money is actually spent in schools.  Instead, parents are demanding that New Jersey honor its own constitution and laws and use the money that would be spent on failing schools to give families the choice to send their children to schools that do serve their students, regardless of public or private status or of its creed.

Five Years of Votes for Spending Increases

The National Taxpayers Union reports the results of its analysis of the voting records of Congressman and found that for the fifth year in a row no one in either chamber voted overall to cut federal spending.  In fact, for every 5 cents of spending cuts the average member of the House voted for one dollar of spending.  In the Senate that ratio was 2 cents of cuts to every dollar in spending.  How does one claim to be serious about reducing the deficit with such a voting record?

Tiny Tax Breaks Are Actually Taxing!

Coupons -- 50 cents off, buy-one-get-one-free -- are usually attractive and make customers feel well. However, a WSJ writer David Wessel pointed out that "Tons of Tiny Tax Breaks Prove to Be Addictive and... Taxing" . (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB115274491342405064.html?mod=politics_primary_hs) David says that adding tax break to the dozens of others that decorate the tax code, we get higher tax rates than otherwise needed to bring in the same sum.

Under the new provisions, any company that wishes to offer television service over phone lines or broadband internet can enter the market.
