It amazes me how the GOP can convince the middle and lower class in this country to go along with their pro-corporation views by telling them that the Democrats want to take away their guns and turn this country into a Muslim state. Ignorance runs rampant among the masses.

For you or someone else to explain to me exactly what 'problem' net neutrality is supposed to fix.

It's a solution in search of a problem.

Finish this sentence for me:

Privately owned networks need to be confiscated by the federal government because......

The only argument the FCC has been able to put forward to defend its actions so far is 'we want to control the Internet because it is not yet under government control, and stuff not being under government control is something up with which we will not put, because after all what is the point of having a government if the government isn't going to have control of absolutely everything?

Meanwhile, have you stopped beating your wife yet?


(And before anyone thinks my question inappropriate, make sure that you know what a loaded question is and can recognize one when you see one.)

Umm, you make it impossible for anyone to respond to you because you are changing the facts.

Net Neutrality is NOT "Privately owned networks being confiscated by the federal government." »

If you are still too lazy to learn what Net Neutrality really is through the video link, perhaps I can simplify it for you. It is a set of rules stating that the ISPs can not discriminate which binary data transfers faster (or at all).

And, it isn't a "solution in search of a problem." It is a reaction to what the ISPs have already discriminated against:

- BitTorrent Protocol
- Competitive VOIP Services

It's a time-tested far right wing tecnique,akin to asking: Why do you hate America??? They are just so predictable and incoherent.

I completely agree.

Putting the "net" under the governments control via legislation supposedly protecting us from those big bad companies is going to come back to bite us in the ass.
