Scaled back or not, Net Neutrality is the government foot in the Internet door, with ominous implications for future private investment as well as for the future vitality of the new media.

And so the Obama agenda rolls out, aided and abetted by the old-line, far-left, Democratic committee chairmen like Mr. Waxman. November can not come soon enough.

We in the Old Media are not biased. We are professionals.

He must control the internet - largely for the manipulation of global funding, financing, and restrictions on buying/selling & travel for the "unfavorables."

It's really not information sharing he cares about because insurrection can be quelled easily enough.

This is a natural progression in which a society becomes more centralized.

Go to Europe, to those places the American liberal looks to with wide open eyes and you see this exact same situation. While they have quote on quote freedom and rights, the reality is that the state manages and regulates every aspect of life down to the minutia detail. Like the right to bear arms, you liberties, your freedoms are long gone and buried behind government policies, red tape, and taxes all intended to “think for you.”

You end up with a government telling you what health care you have, what car you drive, what your kids are educated/indoctrinated with, what you can and can’t say, and they will even dictate to you what pet you may own, what words are forbidden to say....... we’re not far from it today, and some eagerly and with wide open eyes look forward to this near Orwellian nightmare that would make our founding fathers roll in their graves. But what do most Liberals care or even know about the ideals expressed in various documents and speeches. To them the founding fathers, our Constitution and this belief in a God are nothing more than obstacles in the way of their Utopian world.

Welcome to a newer kindler and gentler world, as long as you play along with whatever the Politburo says is right. Like in the DDR (Deutsche Demokratische Republik) we will have nothing more that hollow words to describe principals we have long lost. Like the German “technically” can buy any car he wants, or a gun...... we’ll be in a world where the long reaching hand of the government through rules, taxes, fees, and bureaucracy guides you through life, essentially making all critical decisions in life for you. For those that fear making decisions, for whom “freedom” equates to fear and personal responsibly/accountable which they shrink from, this new world is great, because it’s a life on a conveyor belt.

If they try censorship they have no idea what a storm of protest they will stir up. People will go nuts!

When we said “free speech”, we didn’t mean for you!

Now you peasants pay your taxes and have a nice day.

In order to procede with nationalization of industry, the Left must nationalize thought.

FNN, talk radio, this forum stand in the way. They must be brought to heel.
