Kansas City Fights For Net Neutrality

This should be an issue where both Conservatives & Progressive find common ground . . . Eliminating Net Neutrality could essentially kill blogs like TKC and all the comments along with every emerging independent media outlet. Instead partisan slap fighting has enabled a corporate takeover whilst corrupt politicos welcome the decline of the U.S. Internet as other nations outpace American digital progress. Read more:

Net neutrality protests planned in Kansas City, Olathe

Protesters around the country will be out in full force on Thursday, taking on a confusing topic that affects a majority of the population every day. Many do not fully understand what net neutrality is, and even more think it can't affect them. But experts want internet users to know that it can and it will.

I don't see it that way. If you want the government to run the internet, then your for net neutrality If you want greater freedom and innovation then you are against it it
Just remember, at one time we had over three hundred different auto companies in this country until a few of them started bribing congress to regulate auto manufacturing. I guess that was auto neutrality back then

Silvestor, you're stupid and you probably don't understand this net neutrality at all. Please trust the corporations to have your best interest in mind. Look at the disaster that has already happened in cable TV because of this.

You deserve your internet privileges taken away.

No need to be insulting. We just simply disagree. I trust a corporation to care about they're customers who pay them more than I trust a government that views us only as serfs who don't know what's best for themselves
I'd rather take my chances with a company that I can drop they're services when I want to rather than a governing regulator that tells me what I must accept
You do what you think is right for you and I'll do the same

Bad analogy, 4:16. A better one would be the telephone monopoly before their breakup in the 1980s.

Maybe you all are to young to remember dial up modems? Remember the freedom of taking 20 minutes to download an mp3 file? Thats what you have to look forward to when the telecom monopoly take over the net that your grandparents paid for with their tax dollars.
