You were wrong, be a man and admit you were wrong and move on.
    Excon is NOT wrong.. you are in reality...

Like I said, this is great news and I'm glad to see that the "right" side won.
    the "right " side as lost twice in court so far.... we'll see how they do the 3rd time.

    Well I'm against net neutrality then.

    Well, thank you I am in reality. You and Excon should join me here. We got pancakes and wi-fi and you don't have to worry about Comcast charging you more money to go to a website that they decided they should charge you more for visiting. Thanks Net Neutrality.

    Eh that's fine, too bad net neutrality is being protected and it wasn't the power grab so many DP'ers here thumped their chest and assumed it was the case.

I don't trust the government either, but I also don't trust corporations like Comcast and Verizon. There needs to be balance between the two. As far as I'm concerned, net neutrality solidifies that balance and the only thing you can say to challenge that is "wait for it". That's not a compelling argument. Hell, that wasn't even a compelling argument for the research papers I had to write in 1st grade.
    You mean something thats never happened? Please....
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    We could read further on what the NYT says about it, but I much prefer the original source.

    Here are the 400 pages of terrifying government takeover of the internet, wherein now only the government will be allowed to sell internet access and they will assume direct control over all content.

    http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Rele...CC-15-24A1.pdf

    Not that any of that is actually written into these rules, of course.

    As I suggested many times in earlier discussions, and was met with vehement disagreement from the right-wingers here, the order does not apply any and all Title II regulations blindly. I was scoffed at when I suggested that the FCC can waive rules in areas they don't make sense to apply. I was right.


    So, the scary internet tax is out. Numerous other provisions are exempted as well.

    Our Republican friend on the FCC really wanted us to see this scary 400 page document? The bulk of it is just long-winded explanation of what it has chosen to do and why, much of which is actually electing not to apply many of the Title II regulations.

    I haven't gotten through all of it yet, but I'm not seeing the end of the world here. Maybe some of the people predicting doomsday can point out specifically where the internet as we know it is going to dramatically change.
    Mark Cuban adamantly disagrees with you. And he's hardly a conservative.

    This is cute. Travis, fools made the claim that the FCC would come up with taxes in this new set of rules. I want to see where they are.
