Obama needs to get real.

The future of the net is wireless technology.

And the only reason he wants more people connected is more people to SPY on.

And if it's anything like the ACA website we're screwed.

And if it's anything like the other government ran crap like the VA, SS,medicare,and medicaid.

Were screwed.

Face it people anytime the government acts on the pretense of helping us.

WE GET SCREWED.

Just say no.


We're already screwed.

I'd like to get screwed for a fraction of the cost.


Oh so screw the minority to pay for the majority so they can facebook, and tweet, and watch kitties on youtube for a fraction of the cost.

Well horrah for big government 'liberals'.

You can in Minneapolis.

You can get Comcast, Quest DSL, or Minneapolis City WiFi.

I changed this subject line to reflect reality, and not the deceptive talking point being bandied about by corporate sponsored astro-turf efforts and pundits.

That's stupid and irresponsible.

Nothing of the sort. This -- far, far, far too late initiative -- is in support of net neutrality.

They are stuck with either Comcast or Quest DSL, which is way more expensive per month.

You're lying.

Net Neutrality is not such thing.

Your statement is purposefully deceptive, and reeks of someone paid to obfuscate discussions of the subject.

No I did not say they were evil. Actually respond to what I said. Do you think that the gov't is actually capable of providing efficient and reasonably priced internet? Remember to pay for it would be thrown in as a tax or "penalty" somewhere.

How about not building your arguement from a logical fallacy.

But their rent is probably half of city rent so maybe it's not such a bad trade off.

I think- and can prove- the government has built many infrastructure that we use to function literally everyday.

But then you'd have to live in the suburbs.

if the web collapsed tomorrow people would carry on like they did before it



That's some wishful thinking...

Most people who use the Internet have grown up with it as their Idol...
2 generations of people would lose their Master Idol that gives them their daily fix of other Lesser Idols and society would see a rise in foolishness and suicide...



Except the government gets to create the rules they play by.


Paid for by who?
& where does their revenue come from?

Most new Laws are now all designed to protect one thing...
Corporations.

Because those funds won't reach the Government unless they play along!


Face it.

The U.S. & the UK are subsidiaries to the Conglomerate Arm of a few wealthy families & "entrepreneurs", who are really just members of those families.


If the Government ever regulate the Internet...
It'll be because it the Corporations make it happen...


You think Governments are worried if we find out about their shady deals...
They end every 4-5 years and a new one comes in...

Once people start to see what Corporations are doing... Without the Government being the scapegoat...
That's when websites will be shut down...
The Corporations are here to stay...
Government isn't.

Good. I am happy about this. Maybe now we won't be at the mercy of the oligopoly we allowed to develop.


This was your post that I responded to, to me it implies that "now we wont be at the mercy of the oligopoly" and to me the federal government has been owned by the Oligopoly for quite some time now.

In order for you to believe that we will not be at the mercy of the oligopoly, does it not necessitate part of the government being "out of reach" of said oligopoly ?

I thought we had to use the Title of the News source in the subject line?
