Eclectic, Remember? FreedoM: (of airwaves/internet)

Hey. Remember? I'm eclectic, just like the name of my blog (over 400 posts so far too!--wow!)

This one is for NETWORK Neutrality!

Remember when the incumbents (like Comcast, Verizon, AT&T) said it WASN't Necessary?

Look Here!

Both a Democrat and a Republican Senator said the incidents involving several companies, including Comcast Corp. , Verizon and AT&T
have raised serious concerns over the companies' power to discriminate against content."

The two senators want the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee to investigate whether such incidents were based on legitimate business policies or unfair and anticompetitive practices and if more federal regulation is needed.

"The phone and cable companies have previously stated that they would never use their market power to operate as content gatekeepers and have called efforts to put rules in place to protect consumers 'a solution in search of a problem,'" they said in a letter to Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, the committee's chairman.

DAMNED straight we need NET Neturality.

Give the damned republicans control of ALL branches of government, and look at the MESS they made of that

THE PATRIOT ACT (revokes Citizen RIGHTS)
Lack of supervision from congress of the executive branch including

Supreme court appointments
Attorney General (gonsalves) questionalble acts
* Waterboarding
* ILLEGAL firing of US Attorneys for POLITICAL reasons
Non-supervision and analysis of TWO stupid wars we're now involved in

See? They told us don't worry, now see the bullshit we need to put up with?
