POLITICAL PARASITES ARE
A DIME A DOZEN! P-O-O-O-F!
Is anyone even considering whose idea it is, or was, for America to give up ownership of the Internet? We understand the frustrations of B.H. Obama. Neither he, nor apparently, his people, know how to use the Internet. . . correctly.
He would want to give it away to anyone who would take it -- but, contrary to his constant belief in "things" -- IT DOESN'T BELONG TO HIM!
When is someone with brains enough to add 2 and 2 going to take on Obama and his crazy administration -- and do something about it? So far, it is insane, and getting more insane!
