    First off, the government doesn't enforce free speech. It provides a mechanism by which individuals and entities who believe that their right to free speech has been violated can obtain remedy for that violation if, indeed, such a violation occurred.

    Second, government control does not create or protect any rights. In fact the very nature of government control is that restricts the rights of one entity in favor of the rights of another. The classic example of this is the enforcement of laws. When the government exercises control in the form of law enforcement people go to prison.

    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.
    I linked to the FCC's proposal a few pages back, that is what they are.... "proposing" to do. A quote from Tom Wheeler sums it up quite nicely.

    This is no more a plan to regulate the Internet than the First Amendment is a plan to regulate free speech.
    Sorry but this has absolutely nothing to do with the Obama administration. They simply did the right thing that everyone (except the ISPs) wanted.

    Huh ? The vote was along party lines.
    It had everything to do with Obama, its his MO.

    I only make that distinction because the distinction exists

    Greetings, Thrilla.

    I'm probably missing something, but if my internet speed changes from what it currently is, I'm going to have to pay more to my ISP provider to bring it back to where it was?

    The political mechanism is irrelevant, the right thing was accomplished.

    Name a single IT association that wasn't part of an ISP interest group that did not support net neutrality.

    Everyone that is a significant and important part of the internet supported NN along with the people who are educated on the issue.

    Tell me, what is inaccurate about what I said?

    I've no clue what is going to happen to actual performance, maybe something, maybe nothing... nobody here knows either.

    furthermore, it will be quite a while before any of this takes effect.... there will be court battles to get through first.
    my money is on the FCC losing in court... they have made some grave errors that can't be overlooked.
