Good Thing John McCain is coming to their rescue

Looks like McCain is going to attempt to take away the FCC's authority to regulate the Internet if Net Neutrality comes to pass. His “The Internet Freedom Act of 2009”, would negate the whole thing.

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.

That's another way these things are done. You name something the exact opposite of what it does.

For example, some proposal for by the byte billing and major overage charges would be called something like "The Internet Freedom and Consumer Fairness Policy" or some other crap.

We're trying to get a policy. Problem is it's a pro-big-business, very anti-competitive, anti-Internet-Freedom, and very anti-consumer policy. /angry
