Typical troll. Nothing of substance to say so make inferences about my character. What's even funnier is that you just couldn't resist making this post after telling me bye in your last one.

Let's keep a tally of YOUR lies. >>Actually, you have been lying since you started interacting with me. Lie number one. I am completely honest about what I think and haven't intentionally misrepresented anything, although YOU have. >>Milton Freidman is an "archeconomist"? Lie number 2.

I did read that article. And it was terrible. Robert Wenzel may or may not know economics, but he certainly doesn't know technology. All of his conclusions about how the internet works are blatantly false. I could easily refute them, but I refuse on principle. If you can't be bothered to make the points for yourself, I certainly won't waste my time refuting them. I'm rapidly losing my faith you would comprehend the refutations anyway. But if this crap article and ...

Please enlighten us all on your plan to create this market where we have viable choices for ISP's and can just dump an ISP when we decide we don't like them.

If you educated yourself on this misconception of yours about net neutrality, then we could probably continue our dialogue.

So would I be reading about economics or anarchy, or both? I'm skeptical that this will turn into little more than a way to make anarchy look viable through the eyes of capitalism. After all, you are the one who suggested them as sources on anarchy, not economics.

Ted Cruz is being an alarmist idiot. Here is what Ted Cruz said about net neutrality: ------------------------------ --------------------------------------------- - "And one of the biggest regulatory threats to the Internet is “net neutrality.” In short, net neutrality is Obamacare for the Internet. It would put the government in charge of determining Internet pricing, terms of service and what types of products and services can be delivered, leading to fewer choices, fewer opportunities and higher prices." ----------------------------------- ------------------------------------------ Now leading up to this he said a lot of good stuff ...

>>When has government ever given us anything without being forced to do so? When it bought us our freedom for starters. But I agree with you government does need a little coercion from the people. Which is why we had a system of checks and balances in the first place. When we lost States Rights the people lost their voice and the system of checks and balances hasn't worked since then.

It's not like it's the other way around where "fast lanes" are the rule and AT&T risks losing those premium fees if that setup ended and it went to net neutrality.

Obama's too concerned about playing politics to actually take a look at someone before appointing them to a position. And then when they turn out to be a real let down to the American people he'll just try to distance himself and pretend he had nothing to do with it. Yet another win served up to the American people by the impervious Obama administration.

Apple cases aren't tried by anyone but Lucy Koh, and she is a corporate schill who NEVER rules against Apple.

And this will continue to be the case until someone forces Apple to fight its battles in an unbiased court.
