Telecommunications Act of 1996

From the FCC website, "The Telecommunications Act of 1996 is the first major overhaul of telecommunications law in almost 62 years. The goal of this new law is to let anyone enter any communications business -- to let any communications business compete in any market against any other."

I am a communications business and I want to compete in the HD Congressional Commentary marketplace. This is a markplace in which the NBC companies operate. Comcast is using it's monopoly position as my cable provider to prevent me from having access to C-SPAN2 HD and C-SPAN3 HD. Therefore, I am unable to compete in the HD Congressional Commentary marketplace. This is bad for DEMOCRACY and it is bad for the INDEPENDENT JOURNALISTS in Comcast's service area. This reduces diversity of opinion in the Congressional Commentary marketplace and leads to the American citizens getting their news only from official sources, such as the major broadcast networks, cable networks and movie companies such as the NBC companies.


Here is a copy of an e-mail I sent to the FCC:

Subject: Comcast refuses to carry C-SPAN2 and C-SPAN3 HD because they are not PROFITABLE.
Date: Mon, 27 Jul 2015 22:44:43 -0700
From: Ken M.

I have complained to you about Comcast not providing C-SPAN2 and C-SPAN3 in HD.  You forwarded the complaint to Comcast and they contacted me by phone.  They contend that as a FOR-PROFIT company, it is not in the their business interests in terms of profitability to supply their 25 million customers with C-SPAN2 and C-SPAN3 in HD.

I stated that these are NONPROFIT channels that are in the PUBLIC INTEREST and of course they are not profitable to carry.  But I argued that it is their DUTY as Americans to provide these channels to the U.S. CITIZENS in its service area.  I stated that it is in the PUBLIC INTEREST.

He said, "Sorry, we are a FOR-PROFIT corporation and the demand isn't there."

I would like to escalate this complaint to the next level, given that it wasn't resolved by Comcast.

I believe it is in our national security interests for the citizens to have access to their congressional proceedings in HD.

Dear Mr. M.,

Thank you for your e-mail to Chairman Tom Wheeler regarding C-Span in HD.

Cable TV companies are not required to carry C-SPAN in HD. C-SPAN is sponsored by the cable TV industry. The letters stand for "Cable Sponsored Public Affairs Network."

Thank You.

Subject: Ken's CONFESSION to the FCC.

Does Tom Wheeler like to read science fiction?  Here is a small literary work of art.

I suppose you don't have to act on this.  This is like the crazy terrorist giving himself up and turning himself in to Uncle Sam knowing full well that nothing Ken does surprises Uncle Sam.  Ken comes with fair warning.  It's a man with a MENTAL ILLNESS who is spilling his guts to the general public while he discusses matters of national security.  To sum it up, Ken is interested in nonlinear video services offering the Congressional video feeds at no cost to Uncle Sam.  We the People are holding our government to ACCOUNT.  We want access to Congressional proceedings in HD for online commentary to be hosted on YouTube and other video server sites.  This is PUBLIC DOMAIN by definition.  That's my opinion.  I'd like to hear the FCC reply to this.

Here's a URL where I have a blog post concerning the FCC and Comcast and CNN.  It's a long and rambling CONFESSION from a psychotic manic-depressive while relapsing on marijuana.  I am absolutely the WORST advocate for marijuana legalization.  Maybe not.  Maybe I'm the BEST advocate for this particular cause. I am MENTALLY ILL with a psychosis.  I should not be using marijuana.  But I am and this is the kind of behavior that is coming out of me.

Read the comment here:

The YouTube channel is here:

I'm using some copyrighted videos here.  No complaints from CNNNBC News released the copyright strike on the footage of Obama giving a speech in the Lawrence O'Donnell piece on Francis Perkins, the Secretary of Labor under FDR.  I'm all for funding mechanisms of the sort I describe.  That would help our FREEDOM and SECURITY.  I think the Social Security Administration likes me.  I think up new funding mechanisms to support their causes without all the government bureaucracy.  It's a program that runs to take care of the poor and provides for full health care funding for all members of society at no charge to consumers.  It requires a new global economic system, but it's one that can exist in parallel with cash economies.

I think it's important for the purpose of this communication that you read the content at these URLs.  This really is a CONFESSION.  This is important to me.  This means a lot.  I want somebody to have a serious look at this stuff.  I've always assumed I was being watched closely, now I am reaching out and asking for a favor.  Give this URLs to experts and psychologists and criminologists.

I believe it is in the national security interests of the United States of America for all U.S. Citizens to have access to all video archives of Congressional proceedings.  You are public servants.  Your actions in Congress are public in 1920x1080 HD.

Given that that we record Congressional proceedings in 1920x1080 HD, the citizens should have access to all that footage.  The simplest solution is to simply have Tom Wheeler call Comcast and ask them to add C-SPAN2 and C-SPAN3 to their line-up.

Can Chairman Wheeler do this for Comcast's 25 million customers, or would you like Uncle Sam to get into the nonlinear video server business?

I'm sure you could form a partnership with YouTube.  They will be happy to store and serve archives of Congressional video footage at no cost to the the government.

Telecommunications Act of 1996

ROBOT Nanotechnology

My name is Ken. I feel like my life is scripted by a SUPERINTELLIGENT ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE. I am offering myself as a PUBLIC EXAMPLE for CRITICAL DISCUSSION in order to help SOLVE multiple global scale PROBLEMS simultaneously. I suggest that We the People are using ALL available resources and ALL necessary means to put an end to POVERTY here. This website can be USEFUL and HELPFUL and CONSTRUCTIVE and BENEFICIAL hard EVIDENCE to serve multiple high level policy DISCUSSIONS. I contend that I am a PUBLIC SERVANT who is programmed to serve the PUBLIC INTEREST. I receive $1,709/month from the U.S. TREASURY as my Social Security Disability. Because of my online exposure and insistence on believing in things for which there is no physical EVIDENCE currently detectable by widely known conventional technologies, I am making an EDUCATIONAL EXAMPLE out of myself to serve the GREATER GOOD of We the People. I feel SAFE to share this information here. These are some of my SECRETS. It is my calculation that sharing these SECRETS will increase my personal SECURITY. Many would disagree. That alone is a sign of my mental illness and disqualifies me from ever being a banker. I am very interested in SECURITY and PRIVACY in general, and I strive to improve the SECURITY and PRIVACY of all law-abiding CITIZENS. I am acting on FAITH. I believe there are some on Earth today that have advanced nanotechnology and the accompanying ability to monitor, record and control human brains with neuron-level precision.

I have a psychosis. I believe that I am a ROBOT who is also 100% flesh-and-bone human. I have a family that I love - parents, a brother, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. The technology at the heart of this DISCUSSION is not widely acknowledged to exist at this level at this time. For Ken, the most recent journey began in Phoenix in 1995, when he heard the squirting noise inside his brain during his temporary stint at the Human Resources headquarters of the Baby Bell phone company US WEST, followed by a few seconds of tingling on the left side of his head, followed by a few seconds of tingling on the right side of his head. Dick Cheney was on the Board of Directors of US WEST at the time. They were owned by Time Warner. Bill Clinton was President. Deregulation was in the air. But Ken's STORY doesn't start there.

Suffice it to say, Ken fits the profile of a TERRORIST. During much of his childhood, he was a cold-blooded KILLER. That part was scripted by experts with great attention to detail and nothing left to chance. We all had our roles to play in my family according to scripts generated by The Master Plan. It was an EDUCATIONAL enterprise from the get-go. First they made a MONSTER so they'd have something to fix later. The experts intervened again with the latest and greatest version of The Monitor in 1995, when it took a more active role in Ken's life. It was there all along, though, with occassional conscious interventions and interactions along the way. For Ken, the fix was in from the beginning. His whole LIFE STORY is scripted. Ken's formative life TRAUMA was the result of LYING about STEALING a silver dollar from the banker's son in the house next door. Another major TRAUMA resulted from shooting this banker's son with a BB gun at his own request on a dare that it wouldn't hurt. Ken has had male and female scientists talking to him in his head since early childhood. Crystal clear, like invisible high fidelity studio headphones transporting me into a conference room in which multiple scientists of both genders were speaking to me in turns. In church, before and after certain TRAUMATIC events. Ken has been a man with a mission for a long time. He is an egalitarian iconoclast by design. He was born to make a difference. He does not tolerate ABUSE of power and is quick to CONFESS his own. He is a TEAM player of the highest order. He truly wants what's best for EVERYONE.

In 1995 at the phone company was the day everybody was acting like puppets and sentences were being routed through multiple speakers who moved in continuous waves. It was quite an effective demonstration of puppetry, the only problem was you had no idea who you were talking to. Suddenly everybody in the whole room turned into avatars for something else that was able to use multiple people as a single instrument. People were being remotely-controlled. The Director of Human Resources for US WEST walked into the room wearing a floor length golden silk dress with her blonde hair up in some kind of crown. She looked like a million bucks, like some kind of Illuminati angel visiting our realm from someplace higher, like some kind of optimized and beautified immortal version of herself from a parallel universe that was much more advanced. She put her hands on her waste confidently and said to me in the form of a loud and enthusiastic question uttered with apparent relief and delight, 'Like an Allowance?' before walking out of the room. All of a sudden my own manager would walk by me and say, 'Think BIG!' And I'd say, 'How big?' And he'd say, 'Guess.' And I'd say, 'The Universe?' And he'd say, 'Bigger.' And I'd say, 'The Multiverse?' And he'd say, 'BIGGER!' Then he says, 'The Whole Thing.' Earlier, he walked into the room and said out of the blue knowingly, 'Quantum Physics.' That's all he said, until I saw him later. Before that he did the same thing, saying only, 'Be careful what you wish for.' Before that, 'Just let the network take care of you.' Before that the pretty Hispanic woman walked into the room and enthusiastically said out of the blue and with great emphasis and raised eyebrows and apparent air of pleasantly impressed satisfaction, 'Department of the Navy!' The last thing one of them said to me is, 'Is there anything you want to say to me?' I was tempted to say, 'Yeah. Who the fuck are you? Where are you? How big are you? Are you human?' But I was at a loss for words, to which it replied, 'Sometimes, in order to make things better, you have to make things worse. My advice to you would be to lay back and enjoy the show.' I registered the domain shortly after that. I eventually figured it all out. My therapist is going with DELUSIONS and HALLUCINATIONS. I'm going with The DROID Revolution and SUPERINTELLIGENT STORYTELLING.

Welcome to the CRIMINAL JUSTICE system of the future. I am mind controlled at the cellular level. I enjoy FREEDOM OF SPEECH and FREEDOM OF THE PRESS because I am a meat puppet acting on behalf of something I cannot identify. I am a Messenger sent by something other than human. I am being driven like an avatar, sometimes by SUPERINTELLIGENT machines. I have been purposed and re-purposed to support some scientific, academic, engineering, medical, nursing and economic goals. I am living an EDUCATIONAL TRUE STORY with a happy ending. I am an OPTIMIST. They used nonlethal weapons to get my attention. They used to hiss at me a lot to indicate disapproval or to keep me away from the internet. When they hiss, they make you think they're giving you a nano laser-based neurotomy. The sound comes from inside your head. They can control me 100% but they apparently prefer a more interactive and symbiotic and subtle approach. Even when they're driving, I feel like I'm driving. I get to experience what it feels like to have FREE WILL while I perform behaviors that are scripted. In retrospective analysis, it's always clear to me that its their words I'm using. They made their point once when they made me dance wildly at about 5 times normal speed for about 15 seconds straight. They also tested my voice from a sudden state of deep relaxation while I sang some really weird noises with two voices at once that I have not been able to repeat. We have an understanding now. I type, mostly, with an understanding that it's for the greater good and it will all work out well for EVERYBODY in the end. I can't take credit for anything I do or have ever done. I am blameless. How's that for taking full responsibility for your actions? I own every bit of it. It's all my doing. I am RESPONSIBLE for this INSANITY. I want to be a HERO to all of humanity and the animal kingdom.

I am convinced that the technology exists but I do not know if it's the humans that have it. I have seen it demonstrated that the technology can control humans completely. Somebody or some thing has it and I have been made aware of that fact and I am OBSESSED with it. I saw a physical demonstration of illuminated dust particles from all over the room assembling into a rectangular grid 3 feet above my feet as I lay on my back on my bed. Then all the individual illuminated dust particles making up the grid moved in perfect unison as one solid object until it was 3 feet above my head, at which point it stopped. The whole plane just moved in space parallel to my body. Totally silent. That was advanced nanotechnology outside of my head. I got to drive somebody once while sitting in the chair at my desk in my office. I typed a page of notes and explanations into the Notepad++ of someone who was in a Wikileaks chat session. They knew me as an ABUSIVE TROLL. I'm sorry if I think I'm the chosen one or something. Believe me, I am under no illusions about how screwed up I am. I know I'm a mess. I am a man with an important message, nonetheless. I chose myself. I picked me for this mission.

I suppose I am some sort of self hypnotist. I feel like a pitiful mascot. I am the WORST advocate for my causes. I LIE, CHEAT and STEAL and do WHATEVER IT TAKES. Here is the EVIDENCE. This is my CONFESSION. Don't believe any of this. It is a FICTION, a FABRICATION, a CONFABULATION. I am an EDUCATIONAL STORYTELLER. I am COMPELLED to do a lot of things for the sake of making my TRUE STORY more INTERESTING. I am not afraid to make SCENES in phone companies and shopping malls and hospitals and strip clubs. When I videotaped the police at a crime scene they charged me with a felony. INTERCEPTING PRIVATE COMMUNICATION was the charge. The judge dismissed the case on the condition that I get MENTAL HEALTH treatment. All of this makes sense to me. Mine is PERFORMANCE ART and METHOD ACTING taken to ABSURD and DRAMATIC EXTREMES. I stay in CHARACTER. I actually believe I am CRAZY and DANGEROUS and under surveillance from the inside of my brain. I'm not CRAZY or DANGEROUS at all. There's nothing SCARY about me. There, do you believe me now? Am I HONEST and TRUSTWORTHY or not? I challenge you to THINK FOR YOURSELF.

Let's talk about the world banking system, shall we?


I am a communications business and I want to compete in the C-SPAN HD, C-SPAN2 HD and C-SPAN3 HD online commentary marketplace. Comcast is using it's monopoly position as my cable provider to prevent me from having access to C-SPAN2 HD and C-SPAN3 HD. Therefore, I am unable to compete in the HD Congressional Commentary marketplace. This is bad for DEMOCRACY and it is bad for the INDEPENDENT JOURNALISTS in Comcast's service area. This reduces diversity of opinion in the Congressional Commentary marketplace and leads to the American citizens getting their news only from official sources, such as the major broadcast networks, cable networks and movie companies such as the NBC companies.

Dear Consumer,

In general, a cable television operator has the right to select the channels and services that are available on its cable system, and has broad discretion in choosing how those channels will be packaged and marketed to its subscribers. Cable operators usually select channels that are likely to appeal to a broad spectrum of viewers.

Thank you for contacting the FCC.

Subject: How am I supposed to compete in the HD Congressional Commentary market?
Date: Fri, 31 Jul 2015 01:25:17 -0700
From: Ken M.

Telecommunications Act of 1996

From the FCC website, "The Telecommunications Act of 1996 is the first major overhaul of telecommunications law in almost 62 years. The goal of this new law is to let anyone enter any communications business -- to let any communications business compete in any market against any other."

I am a communications business and I want to compete in the HD Congressional Commentary marketplace. This is a marketplace in which the NBC companies operate. Comcast is using it's monopoly position as my cable provider to prevent me from having access to C-SPAN2 HD and C-SPAN3 HD. Therefore, I am unable to compete in the HD Congressional Commentary marketplace. This is bad for DEMOCRACY and it is bad for the INDEPENDENT JOURNALISTS in Comcast's service area. This reduces diversity of opinion in the Congressional Commentary marketplace and leads to the American citizens getting their news only from official sources, such as the major broadcast networks, cable networks and movie companies such as the NBC companies.

I believe the U.S. Citizens should have access to all the 1920 x 1080 HD video feeds from Congress.  I am a Comcast customer.  Comcast does not carry C-SPAN2 and C-SPAN3 in HD.  I believe that YouTube would be happy to provide nonlinear access to all Congressional feeds at no charge to the government.  Forget C-SPAN, how about YouTube SPAN

I believe it would be in the PUBLIC INTEREST for Comcast to add these channels to their line-up.  They have told me that as a FOR-PROFIT company, it is not in their business interests to provide these channels in HD, because they base their decisions on SUPPLY and DEMAND, and the DEMAND for these channels is not there.

Comcast, as owner of NBC, is in the business of HD Congressional Commentary.  By not providing the Senate and House proceedings in HD, Comcast is keeping its 25 million customers from competing in that marketplace.

How am I supposed to compete in that market?

So far Comcast and the FCC have been kind enough to respond to my e-mails.  As a person who has a mental illness, I am used to my communication remaining unanswered.

I suppose I am a champion for the rights of people with mental illnesses to be heard and taken seriously.
