absolutes? nothing more to say here than: "absolute power corrupts absolutely"
DSL Reports Scoops Major Press Outlets This story just goes to show, folks like Karl, who actually do reporting and reading, are light years ahead of the "mainstream" press. These letters, judging from their date, have been available for many days. Yet this is the first time this "XYZ" nonsense was mentioned anywhere.

said by ZappaF :No, Karl is just doing what every good journalist has done for the past few centuries. The others just regressed.

Re: Dividends and Unions
That is why over 70 democrats have opposed the net neutrality plan so far --- democrats needs unions.Well that or they were simply paid to:
All but two of the 72 Democratic lawmakers who cautioned last Friday against open-Internet rules have received campaign donations this year from Internet service providers, the companies most likely to be impacted by new regulations.
For their most recent election campaigns, the House members received a total of more than $405,000 from the nation's largest carriers, AT&T, Verizon, Comcast and the trade associations representing them.

There is not a single person in office, republican or democrat that give a rats ass about us, but only what they can keep for themselves.

Re: Good Thing John McCain is coming to their rescue Yes, Everyone will tell you that all those countries that 'regulate' the internet, like Japan, Korea, Netherlands, well, they all suffer from horrible speeds and outrageous prices! McNain doesn't believe that ANY regulation is good regulation. That means that all those countries that get 5 times the speed at 1/5th the price, well, they are all doomed to suffer a horrible economic collapse because of it.
Look at the NUMBERS. The countries that HAVE a high-speed POLICY in place, HAVE FASTER SPEEDS, LOWER PRICES, AND NO CAPS. Guess what, the REST of the world has REALIZED that internet access is a tool for the PEOPLE of their countries, NOT A CASH COW for a megacorp. As long as the right wing nut cases refuse to look at the success of all those countries that FAR BETTER internet access than what you can get in the US, and feed from the lobby trough, the US will continue to fall in our 'competitive' war.
The happiest countries are the most secular. The struggle AGAINST corporations is the struggle FOR humanity!
