This is the result of misapplying the libertarian notion that competition solves all problems and regulation causes them. Which makes as much sense as figuring that instead of weeding, gardens should be let to run on their own competitive ecological model.

The underlying political issue is that the DC court is the one that Senate Republicans are blocking all Obama appointments to. Their claim that the court does not do enough to justify filling the statutory number of judgeships is a crock. Were it true, it would be easy to legislate it smaller. The real agenda is to keep the court a right dominated tool of big business.

Which is a reason to be generally pessamistic about where this case will go.

I wouldn't worry to much about it too much. I'm sure Verizon and Comcast and the other ISPs will know what's best for you.

Once they got rid of the filibuster for judicial appointees, Obama's three nominations were confirmed, Link here. (http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/completing-the-dc-circuit)

I can't believe the right isn't all over net neutrality & that it hasn't been for years. This, as much as anything else happening in the US, proves to me that folks like the Tea Party & other far right people are bought & paid for by the corporations.

I wish Genglandoh would actually look at this thread & explain why he's good with the people who support this sort of thing.

........& explain why he's good with the people who support this sort of thing.

They haven't raised an uproar on Fox so there's no issue to worry about. When Fox says so it will become real. If they don't make a stink, it didn't happen.
