    Well, who would be spoon fed by you when you advise people not to consume what you are serving?!

    Franken said Cruz "doesn't understand" what net neutrality is.

    "He has it completely wrong and he just doesn't understand what this issue is," Franken told Candy Crowley on CNN's "State of the Union".

    Read the article here: Al Franken Explains Net Neutrality To Ted Cruz

    Ted Cruz isn't a stupid guy but he's totally wrong on this issue.

    I believe that we'll hear more from him on this. This is a very important issue to a lot of people.
    Cruz isn't entirely wrong (although he's certainly a nut job like all his right wing brethren).

    Net neutrality would not be needed if there were no govt subsidies (state, local, or federal) to ISPs that were not also available to every other ISP.

    Unfortunately, that's not the case. Comcast, CenturyLink, etc. have all received huge federal subsidies (i. e. corporate welfare).

    The Libertarian rule is simple: if you own it, you control it.

    Since these ISPs have received federal (tax) subsidies, by the above rule, the public (taxpayers) are considered partial owners, and therefore must have a say in how the ISPs are run--i. e. the ISPs must be accountable to them.

    Therefore, neutrality regulation is a must--the FCC must be a proxy for taxpayers who subsidized the ISPs to ensure they don't use exploit their oligopoly for profit only.

Look:



    I read the whole editorial. Read it in context. I have no idea why you assumed that you knew what he was talking about, but you clearly don't have any idea what he's talking about and he doesn't even know what he's talking about. But what we do know is that he was talking about net neutrality. You get it? We talking bout net neutrality. Not a game. Net neutrality.
    This kind of crap sells to right wingers because the right is too damn stupid to understand "net neutrality" or any other issue (i. e. global warming), so they'll believe anything that sounds good to them. A right winger will say he opposes something, but that can never explain to you what that something actually is.

    As Ron Paul wants to off the Fed. A ridiculous idea. Large complex first world economies need something like the Fed to manage them and their inevitable excesses.

    So there's not a single group who's cornered stupid nor crazy stuff. Easy does it now.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    No it isn't. It's about net neutrality, which is not an Obama policy at all. Now show me where I discussed Obama's policies. I'll wait. If you can't show us, then retract.

    RP at least knows what the Fed is, unlike. . .

    *She didn't know what "the Fed" is, as in the Federal Reserve System.

    You are just trolling now aren't you. How net neutrality is to be achieved is Obama policy. Now, are you going to continue to pretend not to understand this or are you going to give honesty a shot?
