    I didn't even have to click on the story to get a huge smile on my face. What an awesome description of the FCC's efforts toward the so-called Net Neutrality situation. And then, I read the story. It contains more than 30 links to back up the claims that all this will do is subject the internet to government controls.


    Read the story with all the links @http://Aren t We All Looking Forward to Internet at the Speed of Government RedState

    Kinda ironic when we invented the internet we don't have the best version of it.

    Listening to people tell you what you want to hear, who are saying it because you want to hear it, and then using what you hear as the basis of an argument, is the intellectual equivalent of masturbating into your hand and then throwing at some strange woman's face, then turning around and calling her a slut for having a strange man's seed all over her face.

    Typical for America. Many people have vision while the nation is clueless.

    Fun starts when the net neutrality (as it was executed) fans see the taxes and fees on their internet bill first grow and then fester. But it'll come on one or two at a time and, like lobsters in what started out as cold water, they'll probably not figure it out right away.
