    It's a ****ing monopoly. The government is going to break it up and the companies are scared that they won't be able to monopolize this industry anymore. Simple as that.


    This isn't "net neutrality".

    No, Congress is probing the White House for alleged misconduct with influencing the FCC. Meanwhile it's been more than obvious the FCC and Telecom have been in bed for years now. If Congress want to go after people for improperly influencing the FCC shouldn't they start with the people that have the most to gain from ransacking Net Neutrality. As far as this 'plan' Pai has speculated about, it is certainly rather compelling evidence. So compelling that he didn't cite even a reason why he can't go over it, let alone a single example of this supposed government overreach.

    Of course you don't, if you did you wouldn't post that stupid "Net Neutrality vs Net Neutrality" graphic.
    The GOP loves standards. They love standards so much, they got two of them.

    a) Last time I looked, all local communities also had local governments.

    What's stupid about it? specifically.


    Please tell me one example of why we need this government control called "net neutrality".

    a) you were the one saying it wasn't government.

    b) I can post a link to quantum physics, doesn't mean I "know" what it is.


    Please tell me, what YOU think "net neutrality" is and give me a real world example as to why we need it as proposed by the federalis.

    Here is President Obama's 332-page plan to regulate the Internet. I wish the public could see what's inside.







    Look how proud that mother****er looks saddling us with more regulations and opening the door to taxation.


    for those slow on the uptake:



    Page two continues and ends with the following.

    to regulate the Internet. The rollout earlier in the week was obviously intended to downplay the plan’s
    2massive intrusion into the Internet economy. Beginning next week, I look forward to sharing with the
    public key aspects of what this plan will actually do.

    a) One in the same. You're quibbling about semantics here.

    b) That's your problem, not mine.

    c) I already did.

    Get ready for extra charges on everything if the Big 4 wins.
    This isn't about net neutrality. It's about generating revenue under the guise of Net Neutrality.

    It is subjecting a service to regulation and taxation that it was not subjected to before.

    And you are going to be paying more if this passes. At least 16.1% more as a tax/fee.

    Just so we're clear, you want to hand over the reigns of the entire internet to the same government that spent two years to get a website ready to go for it to (laughably) fail in their face and force them to turn around and pay a hundred million dollars to fix it? Or are you wanting to hand over the infrastructure to said government that is like five or ten trillion dollars behind on infrastructure spending?
