It is actually an outstanding example of something of something I spoke
of here earlier.

Without any exception that I know of, regulations are written to protect
the entrenched.  CAN-SPAM was written to protect spammers, not to
prevent anything important to them.

A democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner.

Freedom under a constitutional republic is a well armed lamb contesting
the vote.
