And if you believe that, I have this lovely bridge in New York City that I
would like to sell you. Hell, I could even throw in the Pierce Street and
Market Street bridges in downtown Wilkes-Barre for just $11,306 extra! (The
mayflies are available for a slight extra charge.)

The League and its supporters, in clamoring for even more regulation of an
already grossly overregulated radio service, remind me of the nerdy little
kid who would always ask the teacher to assign more homework to the class.
Like that kid, the League people deserve to have the living shit beaten out
of them! Rather than doing that, we should simply refuse to buy their
publications and refuse to take out membership in that pernicious
organization. And we should totally ostracize anyone within our group who
supports the League, as the clique in Newington certainly does not have OUR
best interests in mind.

Of course, we will hear that old chestnut about "members being able to
influence the League". If you believe that, I'm sure you also have faith in
Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy.

There is something seriously wrong with amateur radio regulation in this
country when even Castro's Cuba has more lenient regulations than we do. For
the Cubans don't have to put up with any of that subband nonsense. They have
three classes of operator license, with CL stations being restricted to two
or three bands, CM stations having most privileges, but with reduced power,
and CO stations having full privileges, with no emission or bandwidth
subbands to worry about.

But the Uncle Toms of our hobby/service will always insist that we Americans
should always have to ride in the back of the spectrum bus...
