[quote]On election night, as soon as the tide turned in favor of Trump, all he could say was "Uneducated whites have elected Trump." [/quote] Martha Raddatz was practically crying once reality set in. Of course, she started to shift blame to the vile white males. "The white, working class men...

[quote] So maybe they tried to regulate too much with net neutrality, maybe they should have focused on the Comcast and Netflix BS and left the rest alone.....hmmm![/quote] This incident occurred before Title II was put into effect. ...

[quote]And now you know it's not a delusion of mine. [/quote] But it is. Both parties use embellished language to falsely characterize the policies and intentions of the other party. You know this. And I'm telling you that last year, all the pieces were in place for "control" of the internet....

re: The net neutrality battle is back on... - Cs
That's really compelling. The conservative chairman of the FCC, and former Verizon lobbyist, interpreted the Title II reclassification of ISPs as "government control" and blamed it all on Obama. He must be absolutely right, and his ideology and goals are probably in no way driven by party politics a...

Your argument is also completely fantastical - the title II reclassification was needed to [i]enforce[/i] net neutrality. But let's suspend realism for a second and buy in to your delusion - that the government wants to "regulate" the internet, and control the information you get to see. We ...

[quote]In January, 2013, the beginning date of your graph, Netflix's stock price was $13.71. In June, 2015, when NN went into effect, NFLX was at $94.24. So tell me again how Netflix and its customers prior to NN was being held hostage by the ISPs?[/quote] Net neutrality has been the stan...

[quote]Great...probably was a good move for them then....not so much now though. [/quote] Exactly. Paying royalties to an ISP because you can now afford it is easier than having to continually improve your service to stave off threats from smaller competing services. This is precisely why net...

[quote]Hell ask the Netflix CEO right now if he thinks the loss of NN would cause you to get throttled or pay a premium and he would tell you no.[/quote] I'm assuming he would say yes, given that Comcast has already held Netflix customers hostage. [img]http://1x41wi4ekjc71rf2x7zbpt6azg.wpengi...

[quote]If Trump really wants to go after Net Neutrality[/quote] He doesn't even care about it. I doubt he even knows what it is. Some assistant on his staff told him they need to elevate Pai as chairman of the FCC, and he signed off on it and moved on. Now Pai can do whatever he wants, an...
