Skip to comments.Internet and thought control begins in 45 days!

UPDATE: The implementation of Barack Obama's takeover of the Internet is less than 45 days away. And as Marsha Blackburn says, if Congress does not take action to stop Barack Obama, the government will "control the Internet" in a little over the month.
Make no mistake, the Internet as you know it will never be the same if we let Barack Obama implement this takeover. You'll pay more for less service and the government will use this draconian ruling as a club to bludgeon Internet freedom, including ultimately your free speech.
And if you think we exaggerate, consider what Rep. Marsha Blackburn says on the matter: "Once the federal government establishes a foothold into managing how Internet service providers run their networks they will essentially be deciding which content goes first, second, third, OR NOT AT ALL."

But, this issue is one that should get everyone's attention and if GOD is willing people will take the time to shake up the sleeping and cowardly republicans in DeeCee.
Please read this link in it's entirety and PLEASE do something productive and contact your representative today.Remember the liberals in America are dreaming of the day when they can control all new, all thought and all speech.
NOW IS THE TIME!
Prediction. In 46 days we will have laptops linked by CBs.
It is far too late.
America TRIED to fix it,
and actually voted the GOP to take over both houses,
but the GIVE-Obama-Power(GOP) party
quickly got on their submissive backs for their King,
and undocumented man without even a valid SS#,
and when they were not,
they used the IRS to attack and abuse conservatives.
The ‘Net Neutrality’ issue has people speaking past each other like no other current issue. The idea is to prevent ISPs from taking backroom payoffs from content providers to block their competitors.
fixed it so the average reader will understand they're howling at the moon by calling a congress-critter
So it’s more of an “anti-payola” law...
FR access to the back of the line.
We have the worst internet speed and most expensive in the World. Why don’t we have 30 dollar highest speed internet like the rest of the World. Yes I know we like to think we have it the best but sometimes I wouldn’t mind following what the rest of the World does regarding internet.
For an analogy...when you plug an outlet into the wall, the electricity company doesn’t give more power to brands that have a ‘deal’ with them.
When you plug an appliance into an outlet...
Well for all the Rand Paul bashers here is a news flash. Thankfully we have at least one elected legislator that has submitted a bill to overrule this net neutrality and stop the FCC from implementing their new controls.
My only question is why haven’t Boehner and McConnell already moved to jam some legislation through which would take about a week if they tried. Let Barky try to veto it. They should have jammed it through and held Loretta Lynch hostage over it.
Remember this. If the GOP leadership does not do anything about net neutrality then it means they want net neutrality.
I thought this was another Windows 10 bashing thread.
“. Why dont we have 30 dollar highest speed internet like the rest of the World.”
We have crony capitalism in which the right of service is granted to a monopoly or oligopoly licensed by the government. These companies then limit services to “bundles” in order to extract maximum revenue from captive customers.
In other nations the government provides the service or mandates service and pricing.
Comcast, Time Warner, ATT, Verizon and a few others have successfully blocked competition for internet services through the regulatory process and substantial political contributions.
“The idea is to prevent ISPs from taking backroom payoffs from content providers to block their competitors.”
That’s the excuse that bureaucrats used to take for themselves the power to regulate the internet. If you think they will stop at that now that they have the power, well, I think you’re going to be disappointed.
No, that was just the rationale given for seizing the power. They are not limited to only regulating the internet in those cases now that they have taken the power.
When’s the last time you remember a bureaucracy not exercising their power to the greatest possible extent that they could get away with?
Didn’t NN always exist in some form up until recently? I’m scared the end of result of its absence will be the Internet becoming like Cable is now: choose Comcast for amazon.com, choose Time Warner for barnesandnoble.com...
