    Liberals and thus freedom won today. Much like clean air and clean water, we can thank liberals for a free internet saved from the clutches of tyrannical corporate profits and monopoly.

    Potentially.
    Human sacrifice. Dogs and cats, living together...mass hysteria!

    I.e.: if the government believes it can remove the trademark for the Washington Redskins because it is deemed offensive, will they also try to ban discussion using the team name for the same reason?
    Did "the government" remove the trademark or was this something settled in civil court?

    Then again, maybe nothing will happen.
    Probably not nothing: I'll most likely be faced with another 1.5% or so tax on my future internet bills.

    1. ISP realizes that streaming functions are sucking up their bandwidth
    2. They charge more for customers who want the additional bandwidth
    3. They use the increased revenue to upgrade their infrastructure so that they can meet projected future needs

    The end result is that everybody wins.

    I haven't seen the new rules yet but based on what I'm reading and hearing the likely result will be that the ISP's will now have to limit the bandwidth dedicated to streaming activities until they can upgrade their infrastructure but that will also be limited because they will be restricted in what they can charge their customers. I'm also hearing that the FCC has opened up the option for municipalities to provide their own internet services which would then compete with private providers. The result of that will be a direct municipal tax for services that the resident may or may not use. Furthermore, if municipal ISP's become available it won't be too long until you see a federal ISP and the end result of that will be the death of the communications industry. You will, in effect, have avoided the specter of a "monopoly" of evil corporations for the true monopoly of a national communications cabal.
    Bullseye...

    Who wants to bet that conservatives will be retroactively blaming NSA spying on our emails on the FCC change?

    Re: Live feed to the FCC vote on Net Neutrality.

    not one person who is for the passing of these new regulations, can tell us what exactly was in them

    doesnt that bother any of you?

    does your trust of government run so deep that you just accept secret regulations that never get to be debated by the public

    rules that the congress wasnt even allowed to see?

    for an administration that promised everything out in the open, this reeks

    According to the right-wing disinformation sources you consult, sure.

    It is actually 360 degrees from what I said.
