Oh oh – you think the Tea Partiers are CRAZY?  Wait until the people rise up when they learn (and understand) that their Internet provider could some day, in the very near future, decide which websites will be fast or slow to view.

“The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled that the FCC lacks authority to require broadband providers to give equal treatment to all Internet traffic flowing over their networks. That was a big victory for Comcast Corp., the nation’s largest cable company, which had challenged the FCC’s authority to impose such “network neutrality” obligations on broadband providers.”

So, if I understand this correctly, The FCC, which is supposed to be in charge of the nation’s infrastructure system has NO authority to regulate broadband?  Oy vey. We are so screwed.  Raise your hand if you think that a win for Comcast can possibly be good for you.

In other news – a recent poll stated that 18% of the country had never heard of the Tea Party.  What could this possibly mean?  Where have these people been?  What do they watch?  What do they read?

This is the sound I made when I heard the above news:

I am in such a rage this morning over the Court of Appeals ruling. If it goes to the Supreme Court it will surely be upheld in big business’ favor given the current make-up of the court. Can you believe the current law doesn’t give the FCC explicit authority to regulate interenet serivces! And there is no way the Repugnants will ever let a law pass that would give the FCC that power. That would be too detrimental to big business. I can just imagine the can of worms this creates for the consumer going forward.

The video reminds me I really do need to get up to the CPZ to see those snow leopards!

18% of the country has never heard of the Tea Party? Well, look on the bright side — at least they don’t watch Fox News.

Big businesses can now spend as much as they want to get who they want elected into office, and now they can make their websites faster and the small businessperson’s agonizingly slow. That’s democracy? Socialism sounds better and better.
