In fact, on foreign policy issues, you'll find they align more often than not. And when they don't, you'll usually see the democrats in congress siding with Republicans as well.

    We agree, to disagree.

    You can change service providers but when the Government makes decisions about content, you don't even know what you've been prevented from seeing or reading.
    It'd be like what TV was when it was just the 3 major networks ... only there'd be one network.
    And if you say that's not what Net Neutrality will lead to, you're mistaken.

    In recent memory, the Republicans have probed Benghazi, the IRS, National Science Foundation grants, federal regulators targeting businesses, Obamacare and a few I forgot. In all cases, nothing came of these probes except to waste money and time.

    So, if you are referring to the newest probe as indicated on your Original Post, as being "simplistic", I daresay you are correct.

    We have ONE broadband provider here (Time -Warner) who keeps jacking up the rates without adding a darn thing. They have NO competition. That's what net neutrality is all about: competition.

    When the Government is doing it the objective is content control.
    Was the tax exempt status law applied fairly by the IRS? (that's not an irrelevant question)
    And that was a Law, not a regulation.

    WTF are you on about? I want to read that plan, what does that have to do with the topic here?


    Are you saying you support having a plan hidden from public until it's voted on?



    You don't even understand what net neutrality is and you trust your government to take care of you?

    Net neutrality has nothing to do with you getting more ISP's or not.

    Ten to one Ajit finds a cushy job as a Telecom lobbyist when he leaves the FCC. He's repeating all the same groundless rhetoric as the rest of the paid-for shills.
