THEY WON'T LIKE HIM WHEN HE'S ANGRY

August 13, 2004

Professor Maule does his best Lou Ferrigno imitation on legislators who want to expand the phone excise tax to Voice-over-internet protocol (VOIP) providers:

   The logic underlying these bills would have 
   inspired previous Congresses to have taxed 
   Henry Ford to pay for horse troughs and to 
   have taxed laser printer manufacturers on 
   behalf of the dying manual-typewriter 
   industry.

And then he gets angry. Read it all.

UPDATE!

Professor Maule sends a note saying that the analogies in the excerpt above are the brainchild (brainchildren?) of Declan McCullagh, Chief Political Correspondent, C-Net news.com. We should have noted that ourselves, and we thank the Professor for calling that to our attention.

Lord knows we don't want him angry with us...
