    You're going to want to reread what you wrote before. You may have intended to write Republocrat, but you really wrote Republican.

    Ha ha, well you really got me there! It looks to me like we both could read more carefully, because what I really said was:

    Do you have some issue with my comment that you carefully missed? Which part?

    I approve of standing by what I actually believe.

    Net Neutrality is vital to the future of innovation. The people fighting against net neutrality want to allow ISPs to be able to extort money from the people actually doing the work and innovating. And yes, the government has ample authority to enforce this.

    Where is the money on this issue? The lobbing money is being spent by the big ISPs. They're trying to profit off other peoples hard work by paying off the political process. I'm kind of flabbergasted that a mod on a open forum powered by phpBB (entirely open source) could possibly be against net neutrality.

    And while you're standing up for what you believe are you willing to allow a government officials to re-interpret laws? There is a right way to do things, and a wrong way. Which way are you going on this one?

    The didn't reinterpret. They used a different method to impose net neutrality.

    But seriously.. are you actually against net neutrality? I'm not asking to be a jerk. I've just never heard anyone being against it unless they actually have skin in the game.

    By re-interpreting a clause in a law that our legislative branch passed. It doesn't matter if I am for or against net neutrality in this case. What's more concerning is government officials re-interpreting law. And you can't really say that they are not re-interpreting the law when you have someone that was there while the deal for the law was made saying that they are.

    Considering the kind of thing you're talking about happens pretty much every day; only this time it involves net neutrality.. Something which was clearly desired by the legislature, but the previous authority used to impose it was declared unconstitutional.

    And yes you can. One person may have an opinion as to what something meant, but that person doesn't speak for everyone present.

    This is really just about net neutrality.

    So if you can't get it the correct way it's ok to re-interpret laws? I'm well aware that its done alot. Doesn't mean that we should not speak out about it when it happens. And certainly not allow it just because its something that we want. Because next time it may be something that we don't want.

    I was just clarifying that I didn't call Obama a cog of the Republicans, as you have written; but rather a cog of the Republocrats. As we essentially just have a single party and both R and D work for the same end.
