For some reason, the list server clipped off the first line of my message. This is a re-send.....

Of course taxes are coming.  Form 477 is how they will know who to go
after when we are forced to collect for the USF.

And I don't see why they should be able to tax me for the USF anyway.  I
built my network with my own money.  Unlike the ILEC's.  No government
money or assistance here.

Well, some local assistance.... I have agreements with 2 cites providing
them with free service in return for good antenna locations.  But I can
and do argue that they are no different that the farmers that I give
service to for placing antennas on grain legs.

Becoming part of the USF system will be a disaster for the small WISP.

I can't imagine why.   There isn't a single good thing to come from it.
Bribing the govenrment by giving them more than they need is
counterproductive. You never get what you want and you get lots you don't

think it needs to be done. I would not agree with using this information
to do anything bad. It is a difference of opinion.

Giving it to uncle sam is inherently bad. It is the duty of any republic to keep government in check and deprived of as much money and information as
possible.    Government is not the provider of the people, it is not the
friend of the people. It is to be our servant and subservient to us, and the one we have is violating every aspect of that notion...and now you want
it to stray even farther into my life.
