NET NEUTRALITY or OBAMANET

Well, here he goes again. Obama attempting to destroy something that works well and benefits millions. His outrageous new act can be called “Net Neutrality” or more aptly “Obamanet.”

Obamanet is set to fix an Internet that isn’t broken. The present Internet, which allows anyone to introduce a website, app or device without government review ends this week. Tomorrow, 2/26/2015, the three Democrats among the five commissioners on the Federal Communications Commission will vote to regulate the Internet under rules written for monopoly utilities. The over 300 pages of new regulations are secret, no one has seen them, and the commissioners will likely vote before THEY see them, and certainly before the public sees them and comments on them as required. The chairman of the FCC says they will subject the Internet to the key provisions of Title II of the Communications Act of 1934 under which the FCC oversaw the Bell Company.

This week, Mr. Obama’s will give us the new regulated Internet he wants to control us even more completely. Unless Congress or the courts block Obamanet, it will be the end of the Internet as we know it––– more expensive, less rapid, and bogged down with thousands of new regulations.

Thanks again, President (?) Barack Obama.
