Republicans Look To Curb FCC’s Authority To Enforce Net Neutrality
A bill introduced late yesterday in the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives would “limit” the Federal Communications Commission’s ability to regulate the Internet under Title II, according to its progenitor, Rep. Bob Latta.

Title II, of course, refers to part of the Communications Act. If the FCC did push for such a regulatory structure, it would have more authority over the Internet and its constituent players. Those opposed to net neutrality — the general idyll that all content on the Internet should be treated equally — are stringently against Title II regulation as a proposal. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler has considered that a different legal standing altogether be used to enforce net neutrality.

The Chairman’s plans, however, leave open agreements between content companies and Internet service providers (ISPs) that many worry would tilt the Web in favor of monied parties. ...

Hmm, Mozilla Firefox being the browser I usually use on Windows, I sometimes get an advert from them, now I just got an interesting one.
Mozilla wrote:
Net neutrality is the freedom to say, watch and make what we want online without interference from internet service providers. Two years ago, after hearing from nearly 4 million people urging it protect the open internet, the FCC passed rules protecting net neutrality.
--The FCC has a plan to destroy net neutrality. It’s up to us to stop it.

I guess I should check with some other sites to see what their thinking is on this? CNET had some comments on the new politicized Mozilla, Mozilla puts new money to use fighting for 'internet health'---"After weaning itself from dependence on Google, the nonprofit plans to expand beyond the Firefox browser. That may clash with Trump administration priorities."

Here's an article, which doesn't condemn the Republican approach and just put out yesterday,
NPR wrote:
Ajit Pai, who became chairman of the commission in January, says he supports a free and open Internet, which rests on a basic principle of "net neutrality."

In an interview with NPR's David Greene, Pai says he wants the government to focus on correcting actual anti-competitive behavior that Internet providers might demonstrate, rather than regulating against hypothetical harms....

I believe strongly in a free and open Internet, not just as a regulator but as a consumer. And if you look at how the Internet has developed over the last 20 years, I think part of the reason why we have the digital economy that's the envy of the world ... it's precisely because we've had a free and open Internet that's benefited everybody in the Internet ecosystem.

--FCC Chief Makes Case For Tackling Net Neutrality Violations 'After The Fact'

We shall see what is the results of his beliefs.

Great point.

Sorry for the delayed response. I've seen your post but couldn't respond earlier due to my slow ability to type- this reason may seem a strange reason- but using my elbow to type can entail years...

To be honest with the reason for delay is that I had to search all over to find a place to reply to you apart from another area that was more current.

Sluggish cognitive tempo (SCT) is a cluster of symptoms that may comprise a novel attention disorder which is distinct from ADHD. It is characterized by dreaminess, mental fogginess, hypoactivity, sluggishness& a slow working speed.

Although SCT has been a subject of controversy for decades, definitions for this proposed disorder are still being developed. Some psychologists & psychiatrists think it should be its own psychiatric disorder. Others dismiss it altogether or believe it is a separate symptom domain within ADHD (like Hyperactivity, Impusivity or Inattention). A few researchers think it may even be useful as a transdiagnostic concept that is shared among different mental disorders, similar to emotional dysregulation. Whatever the case,
Better late than never

Oh, and you mean the American military system also? I don't support those private militias either. Because the government can supply things that nebulous bunch of individuals can't. Or the government can supply the regulation such as the Internet utility that will give an even-handedness to everyone.

You said you dislike this Five reasons Americans already love ObamaCare — plus one reason why they’re gonna love it even more, soon this because it was written by lesibian -- but the article has nothing to do with lesibianism and her has nothing to do with what is in the article. But no matter, Mike of N.Y., try this article on for size the material might have been written by committee and there is no indication of their sexual orientation ObamaCare Summary : Obama Health Care Summary I hope that is more to your liking.

You're right about monopolies. Why is it then you support government monopolies like Common Corruption and Obamacare?

The free market does a fine job with this issue, no need for the government to step in with a solution that causes more problems. Kind of like government run healthcare, it isn't taking long to find out the "solution" is much worse than the alleged problem.

Have you ever been kept from going where you want to on the internet because of a lack of FCC control? It should be an easy question, even for a good dancer from Nebraska. Is there a real problem here?

Of course, you know Common Cause is a Liberal Activist Organization not a centrist populist one, so naturally more regulation is on their bucket list.

Here's a great quote from the link "President Obama's Firm Stand in November":

"President Obama says the Internet should be more heavily regulated to ensure it stays open and independent."

That makes perfect sense to liberals.

Anyway, Mike of NY, you can read the latest on Net Neutrality here, FCC Chairman Wheeler Backs Regulating Internet As Public Utility
The FCC Chairman(govt) proposes pretending the internet is a public utility, so it can be regulated by the FCC(govt) and then the FCC(govt) is going to vote on the proposal. Makes sense to me. Why bother with the vote? Are all affected parties going to vote? Are any affected parties, other than the FCC(govt) going to vote?

If anyone can name a time they have been prevented from going where they want on the internet because of lack of FCC regulation, it would be interesting to hear about.

Seriously, he's for freedom of information?

Since he has a track record, it is questionable whether he would do anything to enhance any freedom, except perhaps the freedom to abort a child. More likely it is a call for redefinition of the internet so it can be regulated by the freedom lovers in government. Maybe he will tell the internet developers "You didn't build that."

Even on SA, with their app, you see all the comments, you just don't see the URLs. I could have made a longer comment that the Republicans want to pay off their rich contributors, so they'll get kickbacks one way or another, for letting various companies put toll gates on the Internet road. Now, Penny, is that covering it enough?

people post on here all the time that don't see the other posts because of those little devices, people are like this now, my family was almost hit today by a truck because the guy was texting. a narrow world. tv is no better, true... but I am not one to denounce the internet generally. there's wide points of view, but there are points of journalism that in my opinion come from the influence if Christianity that can help one get through the mud.

for example, your favorite website says something is a conspiracy theory and so someone gets on here and calls anyone who questions something a racist or something, because for some the issue is closed. others will actually find congressional records of the events, originally footage of massacres, medical records of children who've been burned by depleted uranium, phosphorous, ect, but if one is looking at a little screen and getting their talking points, that's just brainwashing.

real thought means seeking the truth and that takes time and prayerful effort. another thing is to talk to people who have been there, that means getting out, but if we have our minds set, why bother to leave our myths? the tablets are making Christians dumber. people won't read the longer articles because it doesn't fit in their little screen.
