Game, Set, Match.
Here is something else you need to learn if you're going to make comments on the internet in the future. Lose the the whole 'argumentum ad hominem' tactic. It makes you look desperate and people won't take you seriously. Just some friendly advice.
Let’s also say for the sake of argument that the GOP reclaims the White House and the Senate in 2012. The GOP being the right-wing puppy-killing baby-eating Satanists that your side seems to claim them as, decides after getting into power that they should just start shutting down website that don’t share they’re point of view. And they legally can because the Democrats got Net Neutrality the last time they were in power.
So if I had to choose between corporations slowing down websites or the Federal Government running roughshod over the Internet. I’m going with the corporations on this one.
Also before you roll out the talking point: “Nobody in this country should be without internet” Let me save you the trouble. Internet Access is a luxury not a right, and there is already public internet, its called Dial-Up. When I younger and my family came upon tough times, one of the first things to go was the internet. We as a family thought that food was a little more important than internet access.
Sarcasm aside, I as a Conservative believe that Government should have no part in controlling or regulating the private sector. Now if the Government wants to buy something out of the private sector like an F-15 fighter jet from Boeing then I’m completely cool with that. If somebody commits a crime in the private sector I believe that the Government should be able to arrest and prosecute said criminal. However I draw the line at the Government taking over or regulating an industry. If a corporation does something that pisses off customers then the customers will chose another company, and the corporation will take a hit in they’re profits and adjust accordingly because, unlike the Government, corporations need to make a profit to survive.
The laws of Economics keeps companies from going too far into dirtbaggery.
I think that's the first lesson in Libo-Progressive 101.
Just another example of Hollywood getting real life wrong... again.
