If it was a good idea, it wouldn’t have to be a “MANDATE.”

Popp, the establishment “Republicans” are the exact same way. They only care about preserving their precious POLITICAL PARTIES.

Granny, I’ve said more than once: When you insult my Representative, you are insulting ME.

LOL! AX, I’d give you more ‘thumbs up’ on that one if I could!
February 27, 2015 at 6:14pm
Just wait. Your VOIP phone bill will go up. The internet just became a “Public Utility.”

Every time big business gets in bed with GIGANTIC GOVERNMENT…
WE get stuck with higher taxes to pay for stupid things like
CORPORATE BAILOUTS & NET NEUTRALITY.
It’s called Cronyism.
If you want to see your bills go down & your choices increase, get the government OUT of the marketplace!
If you believe this president when he tells you NET NEUTRALITY is GOOD, I can only assume you also believed him when he said, “If you LIKE your healthcare plan, you can KEEP your healthcare plan!” and, “If you LIKE your doctor, you can KEEP your doctor!” Oh, and we can’t leave out the whopper about how we were all going to save at least $2500 on our health ins premiums!

Why are you trolls here? Don’t you have a Statist site you’d rather spend your time on?
February 27, 2015 at 5:41pm
YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.
NETFLIX did indeed agree to pay more, BUT, they also received one hell of a boost in their speed & performance.
The internet WORKS because the free market WORKS.
 February 27, 2015 at 5:35pm
You are misinformed on what “NET NEUTRALITY” is.
 February 27, 2015 at 5:31pm
You believed 0bama when he said, “If you like your plan you can keep your plan,” didn’t you?
 February 27, 2015 at 5:27pm
You’re missing the point. WE don’t want ANY GOVERNMENT AGENCY (or ANY PARTY) regulating the web! (and you must be too young to remember THE FAIRNESS DOCTRINE)
COMCAST–as awful of a company as they are–OWNS THEIR ‘PIPES’…THEY GET TO CONTROL WHAT GOES ON WITH THEM. That’s a BIG part of the Free Market system. 0bama set the stage for this takeover when he said, “YOU DIDN’T BUILD THAT!”
I would much rather each ISP _who has to compete for my business_ have this control, than THE GOVERNMENT. If I’m not getting the content or speed I want, I can pay more and/or I CAN CHANGE ISPs! But if they’re forced to all be “equal”…there is no choice & no competition.
AND,as an ISP, if a business like NETFLIX is sucking up 33% of my internet bandwidth, I have the responsibility to the other users of my bandwidth to do something about it. Comcast negotiated a new contract with NETFLIX, in which NETFLIX ended up paying more FOR MUCH HIGHER SPEEDS & BETTER PERFORMANCE THAN THAN THEY STARTED OUT WITH. Both parties were satisfied with the outcome of this free market transaction.
Generally speaking, through Free Enterprise YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.
When governments make everything “equal” and “fair,” they NEVER bring everyone UP to the highest level, but rather, it makes everything equally CRAPPY. When will you Statists ever learn?
“Socialism is like a nude beach. Sounds pretty good until you actually get there.”

Hate to tell you this, gz, but…THE WHOLE DAMN CAMEL IS ALREADY ~IN~ THE TENT.
I’m reminded of a tweet I saw, “Socialism is like a nude beach. Sounds pretty good until you get there.”

That slippery slope was started LONG BEFORE the Bushes got into the White House. And, it darn sure wasn’t started by conservatives. It’s part of the PROGRESSIVE wet dream that was put into play with T Roosevelt & Woodrow Wilson, and furthered by the likes of FDR & LBJ. They’ve all played a part in getting bits & pieces of the machinery in place. Many of us have felt it was ready to go & BH0 was the anointed one who would turn the key & bring the monster roaring to life.
The ‘establishment’ Republicans & the Dems are opposite sides of the same coin. They both want a gigantic government machine…they just don’t agree on who should control it.
What the heck did you think the TEA Party was about, anyway?
 February 26, 2015 at 8:32pm
JRook, Hmm…I wasn’t part of any group cheering for the PATRIOT Act…nor NDAA.
One would think that you would have the same (or more) disdain for the current regime in the White House for furthering those Acts so far beyond where they started …lest you be a hypocrite.
 February 26, 2015 at 8:24pm
So…you’re saying the government qualifies, under it’s own definition, as a Terrorist Group.
I’d buy that one.
February 26, 2015 at 8:15pm
I think we’re the only ones who believe in “Innocent until proven guilty” any more.
In today’s society, you need only be accused, suspected or perceived of wrongdoing. Without any trial & verdict, you lose your job, your life is ruined & you, your family, and your former employer get death threats from all the loving liberal left lynch mobs.
February 26, 2015 at 4:31pm
What’s “ugly” is all the death threats being perpetrated against a man who performed a lawful act, and the threats against the Fire Dept and the County. Every time someone kills an animal the militant left gets UGLY.
 February 26, 2015 at 4:20pm
The death threats are from the “loving, tolerant LEFT.”
The only dog* that has ever bitten me…was a friggin Chihuahua. I trust big dogs much more than the tiny things. And, I don’t trust anyone else’s animals as much as I trust my own. (I don’t trust CATS at all)
* more like a long-legged, big-eared YAPPING RAT.

Thing is, the investigation & arrest was made by Fairfax County…the feds have nothing to do with it.
Maybe that’s the problem with DC: they DID drain the swamp. Regardless, you’re right, Snow…there’s not enough Purell on the planet…
