HT to Peter Pratt, with a link to this dandy report – The Tech Policy Institute: Universal Service Fund Money Trail that shows 60% of USF funds going directly into administrative overhead and general expenses – instead of actually PROVIDING SERVICE. Sounds like a real representative program of cooperation between the telcos and government bureaucracy.
Reminds me of an old cowboy joke:
John: “You know what the difference is between Ol’ Ray and a six foot tall sack of crap?”
Wayne: “I reckon I don’t.”
John: “The sack.”
USF is sacking the taxpayers, that is for sure.
