Yes, seize it all and regulate it even more. This will be the key to our salvation.


On the real though, they should get rid of the assignation of wireless spectrum and allow a truly free market for wireless voice and data service to grow. It's not that hard to make sure one's service doesn't interfere with the next. Rather than giving out monopolies over spectrum let the courts handle disputes where one company is directly interfering with another's.

If what you meant was "bear arms" you have those rights as well, but there are restrictions. There are restrictions in the United States as well, ours are just more reasonable (unless you consider private ownership of automatic weapons whose sole purpose is the killing of human beings a "right" in which case, I'm kind of glad you're there and I'm here.)

Actually, I'm pretty sure this was the exact intention of our founding fathers, that the people would be armed and able to cast off future dictators or criminals.

It's funny.  Laugh.
