    ^Low-information strikes again!^^^



    The only political Party looking to screw the consumer are the crony-capitalist Repubs.

    It was the Repub authored 1996 TeleCom Deregulation Act that created the monopolies and duopolies that exist today!

    Young Listeners Fall for Net Neutrality Lies -- But They Have No Idea What's in Obama's Plan

    Many youngsters have fallen for this hook, line, and sinker, and the reason that they have stems from a lack of understanding of free market/ supply/demand/ economics. This is not generally being taught in schools anymore.

    In addition to that, many of these youngsters have a very short memory, which means that do not learn from mistakes of the past. Obama has not released the details of this plan. They may think they know what net neutrality is, but they haven't the slightest idea. Obama’s keeping it secret. They don't know what it is. They may think it's about getting even with these "mafia ISPs" that are making it problematic for them to watch Netflix. They may think that's what this is about, and if they do, God, I wish they would realize that it's not about that. They have been sold that it's about that to get their support.

    So consider that the proponents of big government who want to come in and control every aspect of human life that they can and control everything that human beings are interested in, as much of that as they can, they're not stupid. They know to get control of something like the Internet, or say, healthcare that they have to make it sound very good. ‘Will save you money, will improve your service, will help you with all that you dislike about it’ ‘Sounding’ familiar yet…?

    Of course, like with healthcare, the youngsters end up supporting net neutrality because they think the people in the big evil corporations ripping them off, and NOW the government's gonna get even with 'em and gonna punish 'em, and gonna make 'em stop doing it.

    In the meantime, over here net neutrality is a 302-page document of regulations that nobody has seen because Obama will not release it. Just like nobody knew what was in Obamacare before it was voted on, except those of us enterprising enough to find it, dig deep, and read the 2,000-plus pages. So who you gonna trust this time?

    Franco, maybe both sides are corrupt ... but after seeing what Obamacare is like; and after seeing Michelle take over school lunches; watching how class & racial warfare is stoked by this administration; after watching the IRS and EPA act like tyrants; I simply cannot believe that this administration would write regulations that will not be equally bad for the country.

    Like healthcare or immigration, instead of fixing those things which may need fixing and not "comprehensively" "transforming" the entire system, this administration puts very important stuff in the control of corrupt, unelected bureaucrats. No good can come of this.

    The Obama Administration is NOT writing it. The FCC is an independent agency. That doesn't mean that there hasn't been some dialog between the two.

    Once again, in general I am against all gov regulations. But, the gov created these monopolies and duopolies. Either break them up or regulate them.

    In 1996 when the TeleCom Act went down, we were told by the Repubs that cell phone bills, cable/internet would be cheaper because it would create competition. Today, we have fewer players and I'm still waiting on my bills to do down. Funny thing is all my telecom bills keep going up!

    I would also suggest following the money.

    Gerry, we have to except the fact that Franco continues to be a very confused 'Libertarian'! He is actually suggesting that the 'Big Government', needs to take control of this part of our economy!!?? Big Government Control is good? Right Franco! That fits right in with the Libertarian Plan!?

    These FCC internet regs are nothing but liberals trying to silence the right. They want to shut down the voice of opposition to their socialistic agenda.

    You obviously have zero understanding of this issue! It is your Repubs that want ISP's to control the speed & flow of information over the internet.
