    •  This is Comcast (3+ / 0-)

      the new goliath. And the villian, FCC chair Tom Wheeler. He is ready to sign the future of the US and maybe the world internet to a huge comglomerate.

      And Tom says we gotta act fast. This is a sure tip off that its a scam. Just like the TPP, quick, we need fast track authority, yup, pass this bill but don't read it!

      How the hell do we stop these terminator corporations from destroying the entire world?

      We can't change energy policy, because the Koch Bros. The corruption in DC is beyond acceptable, and outright dirty. We can't raise the minimum wage, because corruption. How many folks are dying because the corrupt GOP refuses to simply extend to their own constituents their rightful Federal medical care?

      And now this Tom Wheeler. He needs a real life political smackdown, he's a corrupt bagger.

      •  How Is It . . . . (4+ / 0-)

        that AT&T was deemed too expansive and had to be broken up into the "Baby Bells," yet the same criteria would not prohibit the Comcast almost-monopoly?

        Wait, I know. The FCC either has sold out or has their head you-know-where and will not take the obvious step of reclassifying cable into the same category as land-line telephone.

        "A famous person once said, 'You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time.' But as I once said, "If you don't teach them to read, you can fool them whenever you like." – Max Headroom
