The U.S. House of Representatives voted late Thursday to send a message to the United Nations' International 
Telecommunication Union that the Internet doesn't need new international regulations. The vote was unanimous: 414-0

Unanimous?  I didn't think this congress could agree the earth is round unanimously.

It is can be useful (particularly during an election year) to make 
certain that there is no doubt regarding the resolve of government 
with respect to positions being taken in international negotiations. 

In this case, I believe that the message is now quite clear...

        Its just the house.... :) But I suspect Terry & delegation will take note.
