In his remarks, Genachowski said the program has been successful, but has also been plagued with problems of accountability and efficiency.

You know what absolutely blows me away?

The Liberals went all apoplectic when Bush signed the Patriot Act, and now these same Liberals are cheering as Obama continues to steal their God-given rights. This is but one example in a series. Just recently Obama allowed that US Citizens could be jailed as a terrorist with no Habeas Corpus. Obama assassinated an American citizen. Where is the Left? Where is the complicit MSM? Where is People for the American Way?

What a bunch of frauds. They are all Communists with masks. well the masks have been dropped and now we see their fangs. And let me tell you, their soon coming for you Christians!

Also it’s not fair that the Poor can’t afford the really good porn. We need a PornLine system to provide affordable porn to the poor.

This is going to turn out to be more subsidized failure. They already have financial problems.
