    I believe this is the most accurate summary of what we can expect.

    Maybe he's friends with Jessica Rosenworcel and Mignon Clyburn. My Congressman said Congress hasn't even been granted access to the details beyond the press release. Verax probably knows people in high places.

    So amendments are not Federal regulations? They certainly are and they protect our rights from abuse.

    Who enforces freedom of speech? Without "government control" we would have no rights at all.

    weak sauce.

    you tried to use the 1st amendment as an example of the good that happens increasing government power, yet that was specifically designed to limit government power.

    You only make that distinction because you don't understand that there are other powers besides Govt. that can restrict freedom and do harm to our society. Sad really. Being so myopic is a disease.

    Both sides of the argument have their ups and downs, but I'm siding with this decision. Internet should not be a right accessible to those with the most money. I don't trust content providers, Comcast has proven time and time again how willing they are to **** with their customers just because they can. I don't trust the FCC either. So it comes down to the lesser of evils here.


    I trust the government in this area far less than the government.

    Check the freedom of the communication arteries in other State Controlled Media Environments.

    This is pure and simple the government seizure of today's equivalent of the free press.

    This is dark day for freedom and just one more step by Obama to eliminate individual rights.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    I look at it this way, once they can get in there and regulate a part of it, why not regulate ALL of it and not just access, content too. It's a whole big new sandbox of regulation, jobs for lawyers and senate/house staffers for decades to come. All at the detriment of the American's who use it of course.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    You have ?

    Whats in the Regulations ? Specifically.

    And I wouldnt be talking down to anyone let alone ' Right Wingers " if I were you.

    We're not the ones who are naive enough to belive in the Bull **** narratives that the Obama administration used to suck you people into believing that they have YOUR or anyone elses best interest in mind.

    That they're going to right some injustice that really only exist in the naive minds of their supporters.

    So keep celebrating being the Obamq administrations useful idiots and being really really gullible.
