    FT.com / Technology - FCC in move to regulate internet

    "In a 3-2 vote along party lines, Democrats at the FCC on Thursday agreed to begin formal consideration to adopt new rules for high- speed internet companies such as AT&T and Comcast, which have until now operated virtually free of the FCC’s oversight. Technically, the FCC’s majority passed a motion to “open for comment” new broadband rules, the first step to passing the rules. "

    Oh, NO! Those damn Democrats want to tell me what I can or cannot say on the Internet??? Those BASTARDS!

    Oh, wait a minute . . .

    This looks like the proposed changes involve such things as rate changes and "unbundling" (whatever that is). Hmmmm . . . . rate changes. That involves money - something near and dear to the hearts of Republicans. Hmmmmm . . .

    But the thread title left me under the impression that the Democrats were about to begin a program of Internet censorship that would inhibit something I might want to say or do on the Internet on a personal level. Hmmmm . . .

    Do we have a misleading thread title here? Methinks we do. :eusa_whistle:

    Income Tax is temporary and will only be applied to the individuals at the highest incomes

    Your Social Security number can NEVER be used to identity you, "Not for identification" was stamped right on the card

    The check is in the mail

    I won't come in your mouth

    Mankind is warming the planet through atmospheric homeopathy

    Republicans are in favor of smaller government. (thanks GC)
