I am now a simple Grandpa who's life is made richer as each grandchild is born. My wife and I have raised five children and the 30 year love labor of raising them has begun to yield sweet fruit..... And then there are fruits of 30 years in ministry ... I am a satisfied old man full of the joy of the Lord.

Twin City Wireless Internet

The Minneapolis and St. Paul governments are working to make the Twin Cities a wireless broadcast bubble. If this happens, it means that everybody in the Twin Cities could access the internet on their computers, cell phones, Palm Pilots, etc. where ever they are in the Twin Cities area. (Think about doing your homework on your computer while sitting at a picnic table in the park)

They plan on charging a $22 per month fee for access. But the whiney liberals are already crying foul because the poor will not be able to do this. So their solution? Take money from you and give it to the poor by buying them computers and allowing them access for free ! The liberals are hard to figure out. Why do they feel guilty for having more than others? Didn't they work for it?

The attempt to give computers to untrained, and irresponsible people (of course I am not talking about all of the poor people) is like spitting into the wind. Socialistic thinking always runs into the wall of reality at tax time every year. Did you know that you have to work two more days until all your taxes for the year are paid? Then, finally, after giving up 1/3 of your year to taxes, you finally begin to make money for yourself. Socialistic thought makes it futile to work hard, thus productivity in Socialistic countries lags far behind the US.

I for one am sick of this kind of sloppy caring for others out of guilt for having more than them. Their solution is never to give them more of their own riches out of the fullness of their bleeding hearts. They instead want to take more of our money and give it to them.

Anyhow, I don't think this wireless dream city will ever happen anyhow. Because the result would be the end of communications monopolies. They will fight this with all of their financial reserves. They will bankrupt the cities in the courts to keep this from happening.
