    Anyone else have concerns about this. I for one don't think the Government in the form of the FCC needs to be messing with the internet.
    Net Neutrality from the left is going to just be censorship of the right if you ask me. Time will tell.
    This is nothing more than an internet version of the so called "Fairness Doctrine" for radio and television.

    I have written extensively about this. The goobs need to keep their grubby hands OFF. It will not end well if they pull this little gem off.

    To me this sounds like a done deal. Where and when do we draw the line in the sand?
    We are so close to being the USSA, United (questionable) Socialist (the Constitution is ignored and for all practical purposes DEAD) States of Amerika it is sickening.
    Those who didn't open the link, here is the start of the article.
    Obama has been pushing for the federal government to take control of the Internet in the US and now it seems that a huge step towards that goal is about to take effect.
    On Sunday, Nov. 20, ‘Net Neutrality’ will take effect. Proponents have claimed that the regulation is necessary to insure neutrality of internet service; however, they are not being forthright in their depiction.
    Many believe the ultimate goal of net neutrality is to eliminate all private internet service providers resulting in the US government ending up as the only internet provider left. And as the only provider, they would regulate who does and who doesn’t have access to the internet as well as regulate website content of all US based sites.

    They could do like the obamacare 'health plan'......

    Make a 'single source' for service, to be administered by the IRS.

    Actually, we can probably keep it to one "S"...

    Between the ridiculous expansion of the Commerce Clause and the 14th Amendment, the concept of "states" really doesn't mean much any more...

    At the rate we are going, I agree. Hence the questionable.

    Dare I ask where the ACLU is on the government treading on people's 1st Amendment rights? Oh wait, they're probably too busy doing something important, perhaps handing out free joints at the OWS 'camps' in the bay area....
