We do not hate the government as a whole. In fact, we like the government very much as it provides funds for our roads, bridges, and helps to make scientific progress possible in our society (current elected members notwithstanding). What we do hate, my dear AC, are the blatant violations of the constitution that the NSA, FBI, DOJ, etc.have perpetrated behind the veil of "National Security". I would be more than willing to discuss this matter further on a later occasion if you are up for it.

What Mr. Wheeler is saying is most probably a lie. On one hand, he is saying that he promises that his new rules would prohibit the creation of "fast lanes" to cull the public's favor. right after that, he says that he will allow the content companies to pay for faster delivery. Therefore, he must be engaged in doublethink.

As a recent entry (read: inexperienced tech guy looking for an entry level job) into the IT-field, I also find it very hard to find a job in my area. I do believe that companies intentionally cry "we need H-1B's" to suppress wages and that makes getting a job that much harder for an initiate like me.
