Here’s the best argument against net neutrality that I’ve ever heard

    Do you even understand what net neutrality is all about? It means allowing you to keep having the same service, in terms of surfing and downloading speed, that you’ve had all along. Obama wants to maintain what you’ve always had, but Corporate America wants to hog it all for itself, leaving you with slower surfing and downloading speeds. What did you think net neutrality meant – the opposite of what it actually means? Well, a right wingnut would think like that, and bout you and Cruz are proof of that. When will you people ever wake up from your intellectual coma?

      What I’ve “always had” is a system that was free of the government meddling that Obama wants to impose. I’d like to keep what I’ve “always had.” If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

      Where is your proof of the existence of “slower surfing and downloading speeds”?

      You didn’t address Cruz’s comments.

        Mumbo jumbo nonsense that mimics all the mindless and unthinking right wingnut talking points. In a nutshell:

        “Obama called on the Federal Communications Commission to enforce the principle of treating all Internet traffic the same way, known in shorthand as Net neutrality. That means treating broadband services like utilities, the president said, so that Internet service providers would be unable “to restrict the best access or to pick winners and losers in the online marketplace for services and ideas.””

        Get it? So that ISPs wouldn’t be able “to restrict the best access or to pick winners and losers in the online marketplace for services and ideas.” And one of those losers will certainly be YOU if Corporate America had it its way. Internet is already classified under one FCC category that would allow for such restriction, which is why Corporate America is crying for it, Obama simply wants to change its category so YOU and everybody else like YOU wouldn’t have those restrictions just so that the best and the brightest and the richest and the most powerful will, all of which you’re not – as this blog proves it.

        If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The internet works great with the current level of government regulation.

      Do you want the government to pick the winners and losers instead of the market? That working great for the green energy industry. Remember Solyndra?

    Net Neutrality was coined because it ‘sounds’ good. It just means more government meddling in issues the bureaucrats don’t understand. The ‘intellectual coma’ is where the statist Democrats live.
