A half-decent argument in favor of net neutrality?
Woops forgot to put the word repeal in there. So far in laymans terms all I've heard is either the free market will sort it out(which I dont have much faith in considering telecom companies) or that better regulation could be implemented(which requires me having faith that would actually get through).
I love how democrats always want to argue against the "both are s***" arguments by cherry picking individual issues and ignoring all the rest.
lol keep telling yourself how clever and insightful you are when your 100% Republican-driven internet cuts you off or throttles all your favorite sites. You'll probably just end up blaming Democrats somehow.
Like, how politically stupid are some of you guys?
- the GOP supports killing net neutrality
- Democrats don't
- killing net neutrality is bad, and only Republicans support it because reasons
- CLEARLY BOTH SIDES ARE JUST AS BAD
i wanna walk out into the night

This is what happens when you let government think for you.
You become complacent with things that you find mundane, until they decide to spice it up, and make money off of it.
there are still a large number of Americans that are smokers. the tax alone on a pack of cigarettes is more than 400% of the cigarettes. Then there is sales tax on top of that. Gasoline is nearly all tax. Now internet?
Is this how they plan to thwart the piracy of movies and music, by forcing people to pay royalties to companies that create digital content, even if they are not using them?
The answer is yes.
You will have to pay for access to websites, like google.
You will have no choice of which browser you can use, as it will be decided by your ISP.
Apple will likely end up being the only company that most ISP's support because it will be the least intrusive, and allow for the least amount of access.
This will trickle down to things like STEAM becoming obsolete. Home-made PC's will be gone. Windows will disappear, and Microsoft will be a memory, nearly overnight.
Because you or your parents think that Net neutrality meant something else... it's not going to make the Deep Net or the Dark Net go anywhere.
It's just going to effect that majority population, that conform to what the government dictates.
If the entire government emulates a dictatorship, by creating an entity of itself as an operating "PERSON" then our country is no better than North Korea, and it will only be a matter of time before they realize they can forcefeed us things, like Fake news, that they created, to make it all seem like the world loves America, when the truth is, our government's greed is on par with why America exists in the first place.
When people realize that porn is gone from the internet, is when the truth of the matter will shine through.
The government will give us back porn, and only then, will you see how tight the reigns are.
If what I said doesn't makes sense... it's because you don't want it to make sense.
So the deadline is 2017/12/14!
Would you like to hear a tale, of a little girl name Kale?
She always wondered, whatever happened to Her tail?! *o*
This is what happens when you let government think for you.
This entire post is riddled with stupid.
The government is handing the reigns of the internet to the free market. ISPs are going to make up their own rules now that there is no government protection for making the internet free and equal.
The Phazon you know and trust since 2004
Odds are that they're not going to do anything to the common consumer for a while at least. They're just going to start playing "highway robber" on anything that comes through their pipes, so netflix pays more, google pays more, Amazon pays more, and the cost then gets passed down to you.
The benefit of this to the ISP is that they still get to add fees for stupid s*** on top of everything but they don't look like the bad guy because it's not Comcast raising the prices but Netflix and Amazon.
To go back to the airline analogy, the Airport will just charge all the planes landing extra for gas and for the use of their services and the airlines will raise the ticket prices to make up for it, and everyone will just get mad at the airlines for raising ticket prices or reducing amenities.

What they are reporting can be found elsewhere and verified. Attacking the source doesn't negate the facts. What do you have that prove's it's good... I mean besides the talking point of politics and their sheep whose only purpose is to "resist". The article from the first link "clearly" outlines it. Sorry if you can't understand that.
The simple truth is no matter what I or anyone else posts you and others like you will find a way to ignore it, because frankly you don't understand it. You've been given your marching orders and your talking points and that's as far as your knowledge on this entire debacle goes.
Washington (AFP) - A top US regulator, defending an effort to roll back so-called "net neutrality" rules, said Tuesday that large internet platforms represent the biggest threat to online freedom because they routinely block "content they don't like."
