McCain is in the tank for these teleco companies and he's keeping his eye on his wallet.
Senator John McCain (R-AZ) is the top recipient of campaign contributions from large Internet service providers like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast over
the past two years, according to a new report from the Sunlight Foundation and the Center for Responsive Politics. McCain has taken in a total of
$894,379 (much of that money going to support his failed 2008 bid for the presidency), more than twice the amount taken by the next-largest
beneficiary, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. ($341,089). Meanwhile, McCain has emerged as the ISPs' biggest champion against new "network
neutrality" rules from the Federal Communications Commission, which voted Thursday to move forward in the process to adopt such rules. Shortly after
the FCC vote, McCain introduced a bill (the "Internet Freedom Act") that would block regulation of the nation's largest broadband networks.
Your supporting the fact that he wants to sell out the bloody internet.
Net Neutrality = just a rule saying broadband must remain equal, be it large corporation or small...ISPs cannot block or slow down your connection.
What McCain is asking is that these confining rules be removed so we (the sad users here) get to either have access to only some websites the ISP
picks for us, or if we pay a ton more, we get more websites
You think ATS, under such capitalist wonderment, will be available to you? oh, I think not.
this is a big conspiracy and I would think anyone whom uses the internet would be near violently supporting net neutrality.
Just goes to show that all someone has to do is name a bill nice and some people will back it....
as my friend said, the Empire (Star Wars) screwed up...all they needed to do was name the Death Star differently..like the Peace Sphere...and there
would be plenty in the galaxy that would think its great.
You can take your McCain sponsored Peace Sphere and shove it up your wazoo...
(I will back this guy whom actually uses the net verses McCain whom uses a abacus and telegraph)
