    Now, in your market-driven fantasy land, some scrappy young entrepreneur would start in his garage his own ISP that treats all internet traffic equally and eventually dominate the competition. I'm sure Time Warner would take that lying down.
    Take it lying down? No, I imagine they would have to change their policies if they were losing that much business.

As usual you have interjected yourself into a conversation you don't understand and added exactly zero to the debate. Bravo
    Actually, Hatuey was the one directly addressing Cruz's comments the entire time. YOU turned it into some freakshow rant against Obama. Hatuey EXPLICITLY TOLD YOU that Obama's "plans" (as nefarious as they surely are, in your fever dreams) weren't what he was advocating, just NN as a concept, and you still kicked and screamed against it because of your irrational fear of getting liberal AIDS because you might somehow agree with what one of those accursed "leftists" is advocating.

    You can backtrack now and try to make it about me, but this thread is here and your breathtakingly stupid comments are preserved for posterity.

    Yes, those bootstrappy young entrepreneurs will put a dent in TW's business.

    Fine, oppose NN. I hope you enjoy DP loading a minute a refresh and paying 50 bucks a month for Netflix once your ISP figures out how to extort them.

    If you have two choices, that isn't a monopoly, but I bet you have more than two choices.

    Getting ****ed in the ass or ****ed in the mouth are two choices, but it's a monopoly on my available holes.

    If you and your fellows don't like it, you have the power to change it. The majority must like it just fine.

    Yes, those bootstrappy young entrepreneurs will put a dent in TW's business.
    Well not if the people in your area don't care. In which case, why should I?

    Fine, oppose NN. I hope you enjoy DP loading a minute a refresh
    Yes, yes, I'm sure Verizon has it in for Schweddy.

    You are again showing that you do not know what you are talking about.

    Since your ignorance is painfully obvious, why don't you at least keep up by reading what he actually said, because it was not idiotic.

    Well, considering what Time Warner charges for broadband, kinda, and if they get their way, they'll be ****ing me more.

    Making it about you? Lol. You are irrelevant to this discussion. You add exactly zero
