Wired Kentucky Home

It's a daunting task. President Obama says he wants all Americans to have access to the Internet with "universal broadband," but lawmakers may have to turn only to Kentucky for a solution.

The bluegrass state is home to an innovative program called "Connect Kentucky." It's a non-profit program that works with people and state agencies to increase access to high-speed Internet service.

The program relies on volunteers to map and test areas for broadband service.

    This is a much better initiative than feeding homeless, shelters, healthcare, etc. Talk about priorities!

    Obama's record in the Illinois State Senate and his short time in the U.S. Senate was a disgrace - with no major achievements, but instead a record of frequent rants against the traditions and values that we believe make America great: Obama criticized our military, suggested our troops engaged in improper conduct in their missions. Obama defended anti-American dictators and sympathized with their grievances against the United States. Obama repeatedly voted for higher taxes and increased government regulation. Obama's support for abortion was so extreme he defended the practice of infanticide. Obama advocated radical positions on the environment and embraced positions on "global warming" that science simply does not support. Obama worked with radical La Raza organizations that do not believe America should enforce its borders, and instead should provide full taxpayer-funded benefits to illegal aliens.

    I hope they come up with a way that the poor people can pay for the internet service as it's quite high in this area of Ky.
