I am John Adams and you have entered my Blog. I decided to start blogging from the grave due to the preponderance of mistruths and inaccuracies that have spread across the people by virtue of biographical books and television series. It appears that a host of lecherous pundits and writers have jumped on the John Adams bandwagon. Even in the grave, these hangers-on are annoying and aggravating. So, good people, I have decided to enter the Blogesphere, as i believe it is called, not to correct the inaccuracies of what has been written about me, but to comment on what is happening now. My goal is to answer the question: "what would John Adams say about that?" I trust a colonial perspective, steeped in common sense and patriotism, will prove interesting and helpful to those living now. Your comments and responses are welcome, however, please remeber that i am dead and will not be able to respond to all items immediately or ever or while you are on the other side.
What would I say?
It seems that there has been a hoax perpetrated against the people. The new Empire, Google that is, has admitted to a head fake in the recent FCC auction of 700 Mhz Spectrum. The result was Verizon and AT&T paying $ Billions for waterfront property that is open to the public. Now the Empire can offer mobile applications on top of the spectrum purchased by the former monopolies. Well done Empire. You enriched the Governement at the expense of Verizon and AT&T shareholders (by th way, this is you if you own a mutual fund or have a retirement plan). This is tantamount to driving up taxes. At least the taxes are going to our government and can be used for worthwhile endeavors. How about spending the money on domestic education and job creation. Either that or the current administration could by a shiite load of bombs.blog comments powered by Disqus
