Important story on net neutrality.  Worth the time.

I subscribe to the philosophy that government should stay out of things (or not even exist, at all).  Anything that would put government hands on things I am against.   Any repeal that would get their hands off of things, I support.

When the state becomes the corporate state, it is Fascism.   We have arrived! 

 

Now the corporations control it all, including the so-called, forth estate.   Corporations are people; mostly hidden people, at the level where their power lies.   They will have their talking heads tell you that it's the government over there, and point to the nominal institutions (which, by the way, they fully control already), while by their own existing and nominally being 'not the government,' they do what they do with no regulation, and they bill you for it each month, while you piss and moan about being taxed once a year, where they have their loopholes crafted for them in back rooms by the politicians they own.

Are the controllers controlling the controls? And who controls the controllers controlling the controls? Once understood, tax loopholes become holesloop taxes. And then the real work begins :)

I'm very glad that my state's new governor signed an executive order to ensure that net neutrality principles are followed:

It seems like other states are still fighting this as well.

Net neutrality officially ended yesterday.   Anyone find any truthful coverage of it in the MSM?

There still is a motion in Congress but that does not leave me hopeful

Enough of congress doesn't have Big-ISP's money in their front pockets, or wants to give the impression that they don't, to start the congressional review of the FCC's repeal, BUT I have a feeling that the repeal is going to stick due to the majority of congress that does take the money. When all of the showboating and soap-boxing dust settles people's true colors have a tendency to show through. The members of congress who want to give the impression that they're not bought will get to say "see - we tried, but it just didn't work", and will likely be re-elected to continue their business as usual.

Why have the ISPs started limiting through-put already, when they said they wouldn't if net neutrality was ended?   Why does a dog lick his balls?  Both cases, because they can.

Has anyone noticed that YouTube is now "stacking" ads? So you wait your 15 seconds, click "skip" and then there is another fucking ad.

Then, a little later you click a video and YouTube offers you "ad free" content...for a price.

Yeah... Nothing to see here, eventually.
