  2. Even Al Franken can have a dose of sanity now and then.

    Hey, it's not the Dems who came up with "free speech zones".

    As it happens, my web browser effectively filters out pages I'm not
    currently looking at. Such a filter as you describe, installed,
    configured, activated, and used at the option of the user, is no more
    censorship than that.

    My not listening to you is not an infringement of your freedom of
    speech.

    Loss of an audience south of the border?

    Ask! He has a public email. While you're dissing Franken, read the whole
    FCC proposal, It sets up the groundwork for censorship. the proposal
    scares the shit out of me. Also, read the loopholes.

    The proposed rules are quite fuzzy. I think the FCC is dipping its toe
    in the water. It is up to us, to raise a fuss. I have already written my
    congressman and both Senators.

    Think it through.Hopefully you will write to your congressman and
    Senators Schumer and Gilderbrand, expressing your POV. this affects all
    of us, which is why I posted this off topic article.

  9. Already done that but I fear our great Senators don't pay much attention to
    our letters. I've written Schumer in the past and the responseses I've
    received clearly show that my letters were not read. I've called
    Gillibrand's office a couple of times and I was given a run-around without
    ever having the chance to express my opinion and make my request. Although
    my representative Tim Bishop and I have pretty much opposite views, my
    opinion of him is far better than that of our Senators. He's responsive and
    has given my wife and I some face-to-face time so that we can address our
    concerns. On top of that, it's hard to not like the guy, very personable.
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't there some action the Congress took to
    prohibit the FCC from doing anything like this, yet the FCC is going ahead
    anyway?

    Liar. The announced that they're going to regulate internet providers
    to ensure free access to the internet.

    Because we all know that corporations can be trusted to do what's best
    for citizens, right?
    Rightard propaganda.

    The government is accountable to the voters.
    Corporations are accountable to shareholders.

    I trust corporations to consider profits to be their primary
    objective. Service to customers, honesty, free markets, even
    the survival of people, comes second.

    Government isn't about making profits. The primary objective is to
    provide service to customers.

    Your name calling is helpful.

    Without providers how does the average person get access.

    Are you sure you're not RichA ? That's exactly the sort of non-answer I
    would expect from him.

    A "non answer" would imply that there had been a question or rational
    statement to respond to.

    There wasn't. You farted some idiotic non sequitur that has nothing
    to do with the subject.
