FCC approves Net-wiretapping taxes

Cross posted at the Liberty Zone.

This makes me so angry, I literally want to beat someone to a pulp. The Federal Communications Commission (one of the biggest and most tyrannical wastes of time and money in the US) voted unanimously to levy wiretapping taxes on companies, municipalities and universities.

Yes, you read that correctly. WIRETAPPING TAXES.

Broadband providers and Internet phone companies will have to pick up the tab for the cost of building in mandatory wiretap access for police surveillance, federal regulators ruled Wednesday.

So not only will your Internet providers likely pass this atrocity on to you, the consumer, in the form of higher fees, but you will wind up paying the Feds more of your hard-earned money so they could monitor your Internet habits if you happen to stumble across!

"The first obligation is...the safety of the people," said FCC Commissioner Michael Copps, a Democrat. "This commission supports efforts to protect the public safety and homeland security of the United States and its people."

And it's all being done in the name of the War on Terror! Don't you feel safer now?
