Unlike you, I don't tow any party line. I support the legislation and candidates that align with my beliefs. I am an individual, and so my beliefs and opinions don't perfectly align with any particular party. But yes, Libertarians and Constitution Party members usually come in pretty close to my beliefs. Republicans rarely get close, but they're usually quite a bit closer than Democrats. But I don't validate my opinions by trying to figure out which party shares them. ...

Yes, of course. Let's just ignore the actual facts and embrace paranoid delusions instead. Have fun with that.

Well, it certainly beats your claim that George Soros masterminded net neutrality. But seriously, this is just one demonstration of many on the internet that Verizon throttled Netflix data. I can easily produce more credible articles if you want them. But not until you produce something that actually shows the link between Soros and the FCC's net neutrality rules. Go ahead. Post something that shows his influence on how the rules are drafted. Please show some proof other than ...

The new HTC phone includes an SD card slot, though I'm not sure about the battery. But I'll wait and see what happens with the Note 5. If Samsung doesn't bring the battery and memory card back, hopefully ASUS will finally have a compelling device in the US. If not, it's looking like LG or HTC for my next device.

>>1. SCOTUS will most likely kill this. They have killed every similar attempt. You show how little you understand with this statement. The fact that the Supreme Court shot down previous FCC regulations is the very reason this approach was taken. Most legal experts believe this move WILL hold up to the Supreme Court, which is precisely why they made it. Previous rules were shot down because the FCC lacked the power to regulate ISP's under any legislation, and ushered ...

Most of the people who say this retarded crap forget that we only HAVE the internet because the government regulated phone companies. Prior to that legislation, AT&T did not allow non AT&T equipment to be connected to their phone lines. Under those conditions, none of the non AT&T equipment that made the early internet work (think modems, routers, and switches) would have ever existed. You can thank the government once for inventing the internet and turning it over to ...

Based on your silence, and the fact that this article appears on the second page of google results for "Communications Act of 1934," I'm going to assume you just grabbed the first thing you found in order to have a pretense of a valid objection. It's clear that other than an utter distrust of the FCC, you don't have any real objection to the legislation. or the ability to express that objection in your own words.

Nothing mentioned in any of those posts has happened yet. The only thing that has happened is that the FCC is debating a 300+ page document behind closed doors. It certainly appears that they proposed to do one thing in order to get public support, and then opted to do something quite different. But even that much isn't clear yet. But let's be clear, I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere that anyone thought the FCC would do a bait ...

Ok, I'm not going to beat a dead horse here. I guess I can see how that passage eludes to what is currently taking place. But his original context was as if I obstinately ignored anyone who warned that the FCC would do something other than what it claimed it was going to do. Prior debate I participated in was always of the context that the FCC's proposal was wrong, not that they would do something entirely different from what ...

I read the linked article. The point of the article is to criticize the Communications Act of 1934 on the grounds of censorship and specifically as it pertains to the Communications Decency Act. Since you have offered no commentary of your own, am I to understand that your concern with the Communications Act of 1934 is that you believe that if ISP's are classified under said act, that the FCC will use this to censor the internet?
