FCC approves sweeping Internet regulation plan, Obama accused of meddling | Fox News

 

It's official... we are now the USSRA: United States Socialist Republic of America. White House smells like an outhouse, deciding which laws to follow and which ones to 'conveniently' ignore. Wish I could afford an island in the middle of nowhere.... 'exit stage left'.

Disgusting! The FCC decides without the peoples opinion! And South Africa always follows what the US does faithfully. More cost to the consumers and limited information to the people.....just when we were getting it right!

And the budget can only be s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d so far. I can't count the number of folks I know this side that have cancelled their cable television (back to antenna and local - ABC, CBS, NBC - programming only), dropped their 'premium' cell phone plans for pre-paid, got rid of the second car, cut back (or out) some meats, fresh fruit and veggies from their diet, can't pay for their medication, much less a doctor visit, etc., because of the policies, rules, regulations and laws (resulting in sky-rocketing prices across the board) this Administration has put in place... a lot of which are a far cry from being legal.

 

There is a saying here: "Nothing good ever came out of Chicago" and with this President, we can 'take that to the bank'!

Ruthie, your countries financial woes actually relate to the fact that you don't exactly have a free market economy, more like an Oligarchy, which the title 2 reclassification of internet services/networks is trying to address. Take a look at:

https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20150223/07314730112/if-you-want-to-see-what-us-broadband-market-really-looks-like-take-close-look-west-virginia.shtml

as well as:

https://www.techdirt.com/blog/netneutrality/articles/20150227/06392430158/wall-street-journal-upset-that-wall-street-isnt-upset-about-net-neutrality.shtml

and there is plenty more info on techdirt as well as various other places that pretty much give you plenty of evidence that internet reclassification is the right route to go, since plenty of states have laws in place that would not allow local municipalities to install fiber to their residents and provide broadband that way around, all those laws were drafted and pushed for by AT&T, Verizon and all the other scumbag Monopolies.

There is also plenty of info out there, that tells the story of those monopolies not really wanting cabled connections anymore, since a wireless link is o so much more profitable.

As for getting rid of cable, well, that's the cord cutting scenario, where plenty of people have had enough paying way to much for mostly trash and a little of what they actually want to watch and now, since streaming services via the internet are becoming more commonplace and have plenty of what people want to watch available, this is a better option, compared to a lame cable connection.

As for the other financial woes, well, your greedy bastards, aka Bankers & stock traders are pretty much to blame for this and this has been coming since the end of last century and the crash in 2008 etc. so you may want to blame O-Bummer and he is a lying *******, since his administration was supposed to be the most transparent (actually the least transparent) and wasn't supposed to go after whistleblowers (it went after more whistleblowers than any administration before his), but the financial woes, unfortunately predate his jaunt in office by a decade or so.

If you inherit a bucket of sh*t, you have to deal with it somehow...

 

Hope you read the links and the existing brainwashing gets diluted a tad.

Yeppers... Doesn't matter the fancy packaging (how they 'spin' it) or the pretty bow (what they call it). More government control = less personal freedom. Government, unchecked and left to do what it wants, when it wants, how it wants, is not the 'people's' friend.
