"The govt has always created jobs and always will. The internet.." Excuse me, Al Gore invented the Internet - hahahahahahahahahaha

You assertion is incorrect. I've been an IT professional since the early 80s. I was using the Internet long before the web, back when most of it was done via UUCP modems between private entities. Yes, the "evil" DoD did found the backbone as part of the Cold War, but there's a lot more to the story.

If the government could truly control the Internet, they would have killed it by now. The Internet is profitable because of the hard work and investment of businessmen, not government handouts and partially because it's so hard to regulate.

It is certainly true that the government can create temporary jobs in response to spending. However, its a system headed toward heat-death. It requires a constant influx of money from outside itself to keep the scheme going. Its just like the penny slots - you win just enough to keep you playing, but not enough to cover your bets so eventually you end up at zero unless you feed it more $$.

BTW - Its Capital I (Internet) when speaking of the broader network, and internet when speaking of an ethernet network in your home and business. "Interwebs" is an incorrect nickname used among the youth.
