All in the land of the Amerikan 'free'? <--- America is spelled with a "C" NOT a "K".
[...]
Really? No need for the magical "k"?...
-[ snip ]-
What the frak does ANY of that have to do with you disrespecting us like that? ... Stop misspelling America and disrespecting us like that.

Akin to childish name calling in a schoolyard. Nothing more, nothing less.

As I have correctly observed. Ideologies are... Well... What they are.

All just a gentle prod to stir some thought... And positive ACTION?

And the approach taken to so blatantly corruptly 'vote' the demise of Net Neutrality regardless of whatever outcry and disbelief, and all cynically at the last moment before Christmas, well: Does that deserve any 'respect' for the 'American way' of things?

Really, is this all to be forgotten, abandoned, come the New Year?!

Instead put some pride into actually gaining some fair play and real freedom from the business-with-no-morals extremism?


For the Net Neutrality supposed vote, the Kafkaesque description is very sadly very apt...

So respectfully... What are the great Americans going to do to regain their freedom on the internet?


Only in the USA?

Nothing as long as corporations are "people" and Citizens United are the law of the land. The oligarchs are in charge.

So when are the words, in this line, going to be changed in "The Star Spangled Banner"

For the great land of the 'free' (to be exploited)... At least there seems to be a little positive noise being made:


Jimmy Kimmel Blasts ‘Jackhole’ Ajit Pai and FCC for Repealing Net Neutrality (Video)

Host calls decision “absolutely despicable”


Nearly 20 State AGs to Sue FCC for Putting 'Corporate Profits Over Consumers'

FCC's vote to rip apart net neutrality challenged as blow to consumers and "everyone who cares about a free and open internet"



All a game of 'who cares' to profit at the expense of all others?...

Is that also known as a free-for-all?...


What next for "Make Ameri?a Great"?

(In the UK we have Boris Johnson. Is this where the Great USA Trumps us with Borat?...)


Only in the USA?...

'Irrelevant noise' from the Circus, is more correct.

That is true, what is relevant is what the oligarchs want.

Glad we finally agree.

I've been saying this since January 21, 2010, that's when Citizens United became the law of the land. It says
that the free speech clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution prohibits the government from restricting independent expenditures for communications by nonprofit corporations, for-profit corporations, labor unions, and other associations

WOW!!! We agree again.

For a brief update on the Net Neutrality 'vote' in the true style of USA 'politics', we have, all to no surprise, everyone runs to "make great monetary benefit The Lawyers":



OK, who had 'Montana' in the net neutrality state pool? Congratulations

Montana has become the first US state to lay down its own net neutrality protections.

Governor Steve Bullock signed off Monday on an executive order declaring that, as of July 1, all ISPs that want to do businesses with state agencies must adhere to basic net neutrality tenets including bans on paid prioritization and throttling of lawful traffic.

Telcos that don't comply can still operate in Montana, but will be ineligible to receive any service contracts with government agencies...



California Senate OKs net neutrality law, gives FCC cold hard long stare

F U FCC say lawmakers as bill passes to Assembly...


Pressure mounts on FCC to cough up answers over fake net neutrality comments

US lawmakers have weighed in on the FCC's controversial vote to scrap America's net neutrality rules, demanding information on the millions of fake comments submitted to the watchdog's public consultation on the decision – and asking pointed questions about how the federal regulator handled them...


Vermont becomes fifth US state to boot up its own net neutrality rules

Vermont has become the fifth US state to adopt net neutrality regulations, joining Montana, New Jersey, Hawaii, and New York...


Washington (no, not that one) to pass hardcore net neutrality law: All ISPs in state must obey

US tech hotbed steps up with strictest traffic protections yet...


Mayors of America demand net neutrality protections… again

More than 75 mayors and city officials across America this week signed a letter asking that the nation's net neutrality safeguards remain in place. Again.

The open letter is addressed to the four main Congressional leaders, and calls the controversial decision by the FCC to dismantle is own rules covering access to online content a "stark and unwarranted attack on our communities and residents."

The local leaders represent 43 million constituents...



Hey girl, move a little closer. 'Cause you're too gun shy. Hush, hush, bye says Pai

Ajit Pai, the boss of America's communications watchdog, the FCC, says he won't be picking the collectable rifle awarded to him by the NRA as a prize for killing net neutrality...



All in the land of the 'freedoms'?...

Only in the USA,
Martin

Senate rejects Trump policy on internet regulations.

U.S. Senate votes 52-47 to retain the 2015 'net neutrality' rules, sends measure to the House.
Cheers.
