    Right, their jurisdiction ends at this country's borders. They wouldn't have control over other countries' Internet content, just ours.

    I don't embarrass very easily, especially when dealing with statist liberals who not only don't understand how the market works, but cling to the childlike belief that the state is there to serve them

    I haven't swallowed anything. You're the one deciding something is bad without knowing what it is. I am the one waiting to see the specifics.

    Consumers always pay in one way or another. The question is which pay how much. The important thing is getting that relation right. If the individual user does not pay for the amount he uses, the price system cannot optimize the system. It is inefficient.
    That means it will cost more and deliver poorer qualities. That is fine, if you have other priorities. But it is important to know, what the real price of the decision is.

    I love unaccountable and unelected bureaucrats passing law.

    Government is made up of people. It is only as flawed as the people making the decisions. Which, incidentally, isn't any different from any other entity.
    It's called learning from 5000 years of history.

    Business has little control of those things outside of itself, while government can control everyone and everything. See the difference yet?

    Don't act like business is sufficiently overseen by "the invisible hand." It's horse****.
    Government kills people quite literally by the millions. I don't think this is the battle you want to be in.

    Seriously, what is with people and their paranoia of govt? But they happily hand their data over to big companies all the time (who then turn around and give it straight to the govt, but that's a different thread)

    At least with govt, we can elect different people who can then appoint different FCC regulators. With big business, very few of us have any real choice in our ISP providers.

    And please let me know if your phones - regulated under the same provision - are set so you can't complain about the govt over them....
    Seriously? Phone companies, NSA warrantless wiretapping. That's why you don't trust Government. You don't trust the keepers of "regulation" who redefine something for the purpose of expanding Governmental powers.
    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken
