The internet is one of the last bastions of freedom left on the planet and the ignoramuses in congress should leave it alone! Once government bureaucrats get their hands on it --game over! Congress is trying to protect moneyed interests to the detriment of the average internet user.

....It all sounds logical...too logical...when has congress ever applied such attention to detail before?...many believe its part of a global conspiracy...I don't think so! that would require a collective group effort centered on one idea...something congress is incapable of,look at their recent history...the bottom line is $imple,find out who profit$...watch and see how certain communications corps manipulate our laws in the name of national security and somehow wind up charging additional fee's for nearly every action beyond what we pay now.....thats all this is about and nothing more...they see a multi-billion dollar industry with the potential of lining their pockets while the net becomes their own personal media controled propaganda machine....somethings never change,soon the internet will be called the outernet...because many will no longer be able to afford it so they will be "out-a-net".
