    Honesty when reading it helps.

    Try that approach.
    I'm not saying it should say whatever you want it to say, I'm saying it can, if you so choose.

    The FCC option could use some clarification, as they have no business regulating content, and every right to regulate bandwidth and broadcast strength. To use a quick but possibly weak analogy, they can regulate the roads, but not where I decide to drive. I think the FCC has legitimate business to conduct, but none of it is in the realm of content.

    Good point. Call it a yes, but with your noted clarification.
