Posted on 03/05/2014 1:49:31 AM PST by lowbridge
The Federal Communications Commission wants to help healthcare organizations adopt the latest technology and the fastest broadband Internet.
Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler announced the creation of a new task force on Tuesday that aims to find reasons why some doctors, clinics and hospitals might not be adopting so-called wireless health technology, which allow patients conditions to be tracked even while at home or work. That information can help detect the early signs of an illness and encourage people to live healthier lives.
We must leverage all available technologies to ensure that advanced health care solutions are readily accessible to all Americans, from rural and remote areas to underserved inner cities, Wheeler said in a statement.

Sounds like they are gearing up to persue and harass everyone they can on the pretext of healthcare. I suspect we’ll see Conservatives, Christians, Gun Owners, etc. receiving a lot of the attention.
I found the last sentence in the article to be particularly creepy.
Wheeler praised LeBlanc as a savvy prosecutor who also knows how to secure agreements with private companies in order to advance the public mission.
Send it the jack-boot swat teams and find out just what the hel is going on!
Pick up that sniveling bespectacled doctor by the short hairs and smack ‘em ‘til he coughs it up!
If people do not start providing answers, we will resort to stronger measures - come on people, “Let’s Move”!
Oh Boy! Another incremental invasion of our privacy by Obama’s Gestapo. It will never stop its advancement unless the head is cut off the snake.
So, The Hill has moved into satire, huh?
What? It’s not satire?
Then I am gobsmacked.
The IRS will be able to switch off your pacemaker or insulin pump via wireless remote if your don’t pay your Obamacare “tax”.
Der Führer communication censorship enforcement commission enacted policies to enforce Der Führer’s decrees on healthcare......
You'll receive a 10,000 volt shock for eating those potato chips. 20,000 volts for a bowl of ice cream.
The Wookie will determine the voltage for various offenses.
“Federal Communications Commission wants to help ”
Concerned over the growing power of large corporations and conglomerates, the administration of President Franklin Roosevelt wanted the FCC to make sure the countrys budding mass communications systems did not fall into the hands of a select few.
After the two Roosevelts, America was no longer an essentially capitalist country with a sprinkling of controls. Nor was it a socialist country. It was, and still is, a modern mixed economy, with the philosophic base and the political future that this implies. In a mixed economy, one of the two elements gradually withers away. That element is not the state.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
OUTSTANDING thread BUMP! (those FReepers are quick)
I’d like to tell Obama to stuff a wifi antenna, sideways, in a very shady place but he’d probably enjoy that.
The FCC obviously has too much budget money. Here’s one place to cut.
Well why not? The FCC isn’t doing jack shit to enforce the rules in the amateur radio band. CB’ers taking it over with their foul mouths, echo-boxes, roger beeps and bad manners.
Dealing with the FCC is worse than dealing with the IRS. And I thought I would never say anything was worse than the IRS! But it’s true!
FCC lawyers in DC ‘ONLY’ make $700/hr. I guess that includes their access to their FCC ‘friends’! The legal bill is usually more than the purchase of airway & location/building.
It will be interesting to see what all the drunk, driving judges and drunk, driving lawyers have to say about, what Wheeler desires.
Also, will your 24/7 updated medical status, sent via wireless to the GUBMINT/ObamaCare, include the detection of drugs?
Let’s see. You’re not supposed to eat, whatever the GUBMINT decides, should be rationed; and it’s OK to have flaws and thus booze and drugs; but otherwise, your “health” is what shall be defined by some Doctors of OZ.
So politicians decide, what makes you “healthy.”
No doubt, despite the proclamations of Doctors of OZ, there will be an Overweight Lobby that gets a waiver from having its weight checked, while sitting in the seat(s) of their cars.
Speaking of which, will airplane seats now weigh you?
Will a breath-a-lyzer pop down from the bin overhead, and along with your gathering in all the information about where the life raft is stuffed, will you don the mask, so that the GUBMINT/ObamaCare/FCC can know what kind of gases you’re exhaling?
Speaking of which, will you have to pass a breath-a-lyzer before the gas pump works, at the gas station?
Because ... because ... according to the FCC, is sure sounds like the GUBMINT has determined to “leverage all available technologies!”
How about passing a breath-a-lyzer when buying wine at the grocery store.
GUBMINT (chorus): We know where you are, AND WE KNOW WHERE THE POLYPS ARE IN YOUR TRANSVERSE COLON!
GUBMINT (chorus): By the way, you’ve used up your daily allotment of 12 squares of toilet paper and 2 gallons of toilet water.
GUBMINT (chorus): We saw you pointing your finger, as a “gun,” at the TV monitor that was showing CNN interviewing Chris _________.
I would not pick so much on Russia. It may be the last, vast frontier on earth, where you can go, fish, hunt, farm ... and not be tracked by all the “leverage” that the U.S. Gov’t and its cronies desire to bear down upon you.
