Net Nuetrality was a Socialist idea from the last Administration. This is a Capitalist Country. I have a right to competition.

Just another Republican deregulation thing that will eventually drive everyone off the Internet... probably the plan.

It's all about MONEY ... and making us, the users pay more. Regulating the internet gives the government and service providers an opportunity to CONTROL information.

The net needs to stay neutral.

ROTFLMMFAO!!!

Please inform us, and be very specific here, of the last person you met who said either

—“ Gosh, I just LOVE Comcast’s pricing structure and customer service!!””

OR

—“You know, I really don’t feel like I’m paying enough for my internet service.”

There’s not a lot of folks who really would want to be screwed over by an ISP for the sole reason that it might ‘piss off the snowflakes’, but yet here you are.

Simply amazing.

(Also, please, what does the European Space Operations Centre have to with either the US gov’t
or the internet?)

So a bunker living ham radio conspiracy nutter who thinks “registering” on an anonymous Internet forum, under a fake name, from an unknown location, gives then some kind of gravitas will also weigh in, on the Internet, on how the anonymous voices in the dark keep them better ‘informed’ than Reuters or the BBC.

You’re a special one, aren’t you pumpkin?

The same elements... the same corporate interests brought you the Internet in all its technological glory, but Obama type Communist creeps want you to believe those same entrepreneurs need to have government controls. Decades of capitalist ingenuity and savvy suddenly has to have a couple years of government controls become permanent inhibitors of more ingenuity and growth. That's the Communist control freak mindset for you.

The US Military in collaboration with a hand full of independent global analysis developed the internet. So citizens of the United States financed researchband development of the internet..

Each state legislature can adopt net neutrality policies duplicating the service protections from the Obama policy.

Follow the example states employed with climate change initatives.

Good people United will never be defeated.
