"The FCC’s net neutrality decision is a study in just what’s wrong with Washington. This agency failed the American public. It failed to listen to their concerns and gave short shrift to their deeply held belief that internet openness should remain the law of the land. It turned a blind eye to all kinds of corruption in our public record—from Russian intervention to fake comments to stolen identities in our files. As a result of the mess the agency created, broadband providers will now have the power to block websites, throttle services, and censor online content. This is not right. The FCC is on the wrong side of history and the wrong side of the law and it deserves to have its handiwork revisited, reexamined, and ultimately reversed."
The above quote was attributed to FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel this morning. I'm betting she'll be getting a stern reprimand from FCC Director Ajit Pai who is responsible for undoing all the great things his predecessor, Tom Wheeler accomplished. Politicians better wake up. What do you think is going to happen when they take away your internet, and/or hijack you for higher monthly rates. My dad taught me the lesson about the "Golden Rule" at a very young age. That rule states that "whoever had the Gold, was the one who made the rules."
You don't mess with my internet, or try to drill for oil in my ocean, and still get my vote!
