Hillary Clinton Misunderstands (Misrepresents?) How Government Pummels The Economy
Notice How That
Connects to the Internet,
Mrs. Clinton is vying to lead the government that lords over our $17+ trillion economy. Which – given just one article she recently penned – is more than a mite disturbing. Behold: “Being Pro-Business Doesn’t Mean Hanging Consumers Out to Dry.”
What Mrs. Clinton does mean to do, apparently, is hang out to dry the facts and Reality. Her column is chock full of Leftist bromide talking points – which have time and again been totally disproven. But because the Left dominates the media – they live on. Fake Leftist “facts” are like zombies. They are repeatedly slain – but again and again shamble away from their graves. Happy Halloween, All.
Let us examine just some of what the looming Democrat nominee has to offer. Steady yourselves – she actually starts out…quite well.
At the root of just about every financial hiccup – let alone crisis – is government action. To cite but one: the 2008 global financial meltdown. Which was caused by our government mandating for decades that more and more home loans be given to people everyone knew couldn’t pay them back. When the pile of bad paper was sky high – and the housing market dipped ever so slightly – everything collapsed.
Does Mrs. Clinton acknowledge even the possibility that government might be the problem? Of course not.
Mrs. Clinton then swerves into the Internet Sector. She is here so wrong in so many directions – it is simply staggering.
These (government) incumbents – the real monopolists – also have the final say on whether an ISP can build a network. They determine what hoops an ISP must jump through to get approval.
This reduces the number of potential competitors who can profitably deploy service.… The lack of competition makes it easier for local governments and utilities to charge more for rights of way and pole attachments.
It’s a vicious circle…(A) system of forced kickbacks….(also) includ(ing) ISPs…building out service where it isn’t demanded, donating equipment, and delivering free broadband to government buildings.…
Video franchises are the revenue-sharing agreements that cable TV companies sign with local governments in return for the exclusive right to offer video services to customers.
Cellular wireless service is now so fast, you can watch seamless, streaming HD video – on your phone. Which is frigging amazing – and should certainly count as having access. Mrs. Clinton bizarrely doesn’t think so. She in fact ignores these other options – so as to warp the numbers and thus trump up the case for more government.
But Pew Research this year found:
Mrs. Clinton goes on (and ON) – but by now we know not to waste any more of our time. She has nothing of value to say.
She is the Government Candidate – thus she will ignore the government-induced origin of our problems. And prescribe as their “solutions” – ever more government.
Here’s hoping next year we know – and do – better.
