    In most circumstances I tend to argue for less government. In fact, I really hate the Federal Communist Commission. Their legitimate power is to protect against piracy, and that's it.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    i support legislated net neutrality. the big players should not be allowed to throttle the startups, because they WILL do exactly that. you also failed to absorb the fact that the site you are using to bitch about this on would be in the slow lane.

    again, **** that.

    I prefer to have the internet controlled by our representational democracy based government than by a handful of corporations. If you like being forced to pay over $60 for cable TV just to get one channel such as HBO, you'll love what the ISPs will do to the internet.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I can understand not trusting the government. I don't understand trusting the handful of corporations with a near-monopoly on providing internet services.

    They need to keep each other in check. Right now the government is owned by the monopolies. The head guy in this report is a former lobbyist for the cable companies...but the media will NOT report it. Disgusting.
