Obama says Internet must have Net Neutrality

https://hotair.com/archives/2017/12/...ties-internet/

In an interview done in September, Obama repeated his position, that the Internet must be censored and "common ground achieved", to prevent "Balkanization" of the Internet.

Common Ground/ Balkanization meaning...............to prevent groups like those advocating BREXIT, or those supporting Trump or guns............. from getting forums on the net, to spread that philosophy of hate.

The sob must have shit a brick when Agit Pai, the FCC chairman stuck it up his ass and cancelled Net Neutrality.............remember Obama's interview with Prince Harry was done last September!!

Like Hillary, this sob will simply not go away.

This is how we know net neutrality is a terrible idea.

Isn't Censoring the internet and preventing groups from getting forums on the net against the principle of Net Neutrality?

Yep,

**** Obama and his divisiveness. It was not net neutrality it was simply keeping the status quo ie.. allow facebook and google to rule the internet.

I keep trying to figure out why anyone gives a shit about Prince Harry? (Or Obama for that matter.) I think comedian John Oliver pegged it when he said the Americans care more about the Royals than the British do. I certainly don't; never have, never will.

Who gives a F#@K what obama sez!

With the loss of net neutrality, You get to pay more for $hittier service.

If an ISP doesn't like fafiles they can throttle the band width back with no recrimination.

The internet was engineered by the gooberment. Not Private Industry and is a utility, NOt as Profit motive for googles face books and the other internets cesspools!

Well that explains why I couldn't even log onto the Files before Barry the Saint put in NN.


I think it has more to do with protecting bandwidth hogs like Netflix than censoring content, but I'm no expert. I just go with the general principle of opposing everything that asshat wants.

What ?? Please explain that to me...

AFAIK,,,net nutrality regs are something NEW that they want to pass,,,not something we have now and they want to do away with...
Most ive read about it states exactly opposite of what you quote...
In other words,,if they pass it,,the big money players (google,facebooketc) will buy more prefered control..

What we had was net neutrality up until they passed regulations that now allow ISP (Internet Service Providers) to put a throttle on the band width that any such entity wished to broadcast upon.

There was no throttling of band width permitted under any circumstance. That is what net neutrality was.

Sure, netflix or googles or facebooks or whatever stands on one side of the issue or the other.

The point is if you like guns, are a republican, are a democrat, are an LGBT or other queer, F#@K animals, or like wise have some such message to transmit on the internet, some where some internet power that is transmitting band width now has the power to limit your right to free speech by virtue of slowing your internet by throttling or slowing or narrowing your bandwidth.

Have you seen that happen ?
Has the internet been slow, restricted and censured for you the last 3 years ?

Im sure no internet expert,,but what Ive read about it basically states that it makes the Govt or FCC more of a controlling hand on day to day operation instead of the free market ISP system operating in place since 2014....More Govt CONTROL...

I might be wrong, but I vote for keeping Govt agencys out of controling anything possible...

Prior to the recent legislation there was no rule other than all participants in the web had equal and unfettered band width, or access to the internet information intake.

Now with legislation prompted by special interests, namely those providing the internet access to all customers, they can ration, distribute, allocate, favor with unfettered, or fetter the hell out of any entity they desire. Such as a competing TV streaming service, rival ISP, falfiles, think-tanks of differing political affiliations, the cesspool of what ever weird $h!T one can find on the internet.

What you have now is bigger government favoring private industry over the public utility, The internet.

That is bigger government, creating regulations, spending money to think up and write legislation, taking time away from real important issues, contrary to what the political louses promised, smaller government, when they stood on their platforms begging for your votes.

Prior to the recent legislation the internet downloaded at the available speed, now with this new set of regulations, your download or loading of a page may go from instantaneous to taking 30 seconds to a minute or more. That available speed depends on what your ISP or the ISP that provides your ISP decides.

Bigger government brought to you by politicians whom promised to shrink government with the added result of an abridgement of the First Amendment were: " ...the freedoms of speech, press, assembly, and petition – were of particular concern to Jefferson." cited from:

IDK,,,once again,,this seemz backwards from what ive read..
What we now have is free market,,supply and demand..
Sure its cascading and big money players pay big to do peer servers all over the world, so their content is faster, but thats called capitalism....

Net neutrality means everyone has to be equal...great in theory,,not very good in practice.

To me it seems like when they broke up bell telephone and then barred the baby bells from doing long distance....untill they deregulated it and let them compete, it was a very expensive cluster fuk...
Saw the same thing with cable or cell service, govt regulations to make sure everyone gets a trophy equals we all pay more...just my .02

Net neutrality was a good thing.

Rescinding it is just a wellfare giveaway to wellfare queen corporations.

Falfiles loads a helluava lot slower.

You didn't like it just because a Ni@@er suported it!

Now I get the options to pay more for crappier service!

If you think an unbiased, selectively throttled service on publicly funded-developed utiity is a good thing, your're GO@@amned IGNORANT!

Wake up! Net neutrality was just a euphemism for government control of the internet. We were fine before it and we will be fine after it's demise.
It was only in effect for @2 1/2 years. The internet doesn't need a another bureaucracy to oversee it. You have been misinformed.

When throttling happened in the cell phone arena, did the consumer roll over and say "thank you, thank you!"? No, they voted with their wallet and now most cell plans have an unlimited option once again.

Same with internet: if Joe Fatcat ISP allows Pr0n Vids R Us to pay them extra to "pump" their stuff into consumer's waiting interfaces (pun intended), don't you think that if the My Little Pony website offers a better product but can't pay the premium that the consumer would vote with their wallet and move to an ISP that doesn't favor FatCat?

Capitalism means a free market. Regulated neutrality is not a free market.

I disagree they are sheltered.

William - Operational SAR Pilot for 5 years. Did his bit in the only capacity in which he's allowed to serve.



Harry - Operational forward Air Controller and Apache crewman, pulled two weeks short of his full tour in Afghanistan due to a press leak - over his repeated protests to be kept in theater.



You may not agree with them, or the system, but they have done their bit and led from the front.
