How the Republicans Sold Your Privacy to Internet Providers
« on: March 30, 2017, 07:13:49 PM »

I thought Republicans were conservative and so opposed to anti privacy laws?

This is crazy! Why?

Yeah, this slips under the radar while we all bicker about stupid things and name calling. You're not the only one who wonders why the Republicans would do this.  Any ideas?

Yeah. They don't need a reason, they will do anything for big business and ultimately themselves to prosper financially. That's why they did it. They've been bought and paid for. The company's make money, the company's give them money,  and no one suffers but the consumer. And they don't care about you.

I will guarantee you that the Trump fanatics will claim it's a good thing, somehow someway, it's always for the better, no matter if it is or not. The very definition of cult.

Get ready for another cold war.

You are so right. Can you imagine the firestorm there would be if the Democrats would have passed this bill? You'd never hear the end of how Obama and the liberals are taking away our rights and violating their privacy. But of course, the Republicans did it so you don't hear a peep. Unbelievable!

Money of course. It's not a mystery.

Trump's great for America. We don't need these regulations against business. They'll be fair to you if you allow them to make honest profit. Trump's doing a great job and your jealousy isn't going to stop him, or Christians from supporting him.

In 2 to 3 years you'll be regretting your support for anti net neutrality regulation. Probably blaming the whole thing on Democrats. Ignorance is bliss.

  )Goodpoint(  If left up to business people would still be working in coal mines with coal gas and black lung, wall street would be still be ripping off investors savings, and we'd be drinking water laced with lead. Trump apologists say some of the most ignorant things I've ever heard. It's like they've gone brain dead. And before my post gets deleted, I'm not referring to anyone here. I'm talking about the idolizing Trump supporters in general.

Net neutrality is something we all should support to keep this country out of the hands of big business.

Believe it or not, Verizon has already started throttling Netflix streaming So if you have Verizon, and are wondering why your Netflix steaming movies are always reloading, buffering or lagging while other streaming services (like Vudu, Hulu, Amazon, etc.) on the same Verizon network do not, Netflix is being throttled because they won't pay the $20.00 extortion fee to Verizon.  It's bound to get worse as these money grubbing companies increase their throttling of streams going to non-business customers. And you have the Republican congress to thank for the anti net neutrality deregulation which makes it now legal to do so. People are so stupid to believe these companies. I'm switching from Verizon, but I'm sure all the companies will be doing the same thing before long.

Red alert for net neutrality!

https://www.change.org/p/11735314/u/22728549?utm_medium=email&utm_source=petition_update&utm_campaign=324923

MAY 9, 2018 — The Senate is about to vote on a resolution to save net neutrality. Starting today, and carrying through until the vote, the Internet will “go red” to raise awareness and ensure lawmakers hear from their constituents (that's you!).

Petition Update
Net neutrality vote tomorrow.

According to Senator Ed Markey, who introduced the bill that would overrule the FCC and save net neutrality, the Senate will be voting tomorrow and only one more vote is needed. Right now, making a phone call is the most important action you can take and our partners at Battle for the Net make it easy. Just go here to make your call: http://bit.ly/callforthenet The Congressional Review Act...

The U.S. Senate recently passed a resolution to overturn the FCC's decision and save net neutrality. However, this fight isn't over. The Congressional Review Act resolution now must be passed by the House of Representatives. Sign the petition to save net neutrality.
