    This is a very old clip, but I think it speaks to the point.

    Net Neutrality is vitally important to an open and free internet. It's what you have always had. It isn't a push to implement neut neutrality, it's a push to make sure we keep net neutrality. You like the way your internet works now, right? It's not broken, don't fix it.

    Nancy Pelosi was on the "oppose" list. Strange bill, this one. Rather than party lines it seems to be along the lines of "People who understand how the internet works" and "People who don't understand how the internet works."

    Also, "people who understand but don't give a **** because they are getting millions in donations from the entertainment industry."

    I haven't read all 9 pages SO not sure if this was brought up but I think it's hilarious that Marco Rubio just came out and says he "no longer supports the Protect IP bill", and all the sheep on his FB page (my husband is a libertarian & likes him so he has him on his FB) are praising him left and right. Aren't they wondering why he supported it in the first place, and is now backing out? Wasn't he the big "uphold the constitution man"? My husband didn't know what to say when I told him. He had just said last night it's all thanks to the Obama administration. Uh huh. Too bad Rubio SPONSORED IT (but don't worry- he's backing out now because he "listens to the people").

    True, I may. However, they're not in congress. Those 60 year old geezers in congress have their secretaries do all the computing. I seriously doubt those secretaries have a large amount of say in the decision making of the congressman/woman. Therefor, again, I believe they have no business voting on something they know nothing about.

    Indeed sir, I love that. Point well made. What is astounding is that the "guy who regulates it" doesn't know jack **** about it, yet they put him in charge of it. I'm a programming major, so I have a pretty good idea of where the internet is headed while Congress, has the tubes in their brains filled with ****.

    Well...it's crappy that he supported it to begin with, and he should explain that...but we're all calling/mailing our senators and representatives exactly to accomplish this goal: changing their votes.

    Apparently, his constituents succeeded. I hope I/my fellow voters are as successful with my reps.

    Re: Sopa

    I am very pleased to learn that one of my senators has reversed his position on this (Rubio), now Sen. Nelson, it is your turn to step up and pay attention to the huge outcry you are hearing from your constituents (myself included).

    I still have no clue what my congresswoman's stance is on the issue, but she does know mine.

    Re: Sopa

    WSo, what's the word - has SOPA been killed, or merely shelved? What about PIPA, and any other similar laws? I know support is [rightfully, IMO] dying, but I've kinda taken a day off from keeping up with the issue.
