This is a repost from my blog from 2015 in regards to “Net Neutrality”. At the time Obama was still in office and the rest of the title was “Lame Duke” president and the Progressives last push for control.”
Net Neutrality is back in the News though. Though I am a supporter of President Trump and most of his agenda I think the government or anyone else for that matter should not be regulating the internet.
Like I stae in the blog post you have to be very careful who you listen to on this subject and take the time to research who’s behind what they are telling you.
Bottom line LEAVE THE INTERNET ALONE! It’s bad enough Obama gave it away.
There’s a lot of info in my post. The following parts are from the post and a link to it if your interested.
A few week’s ago I was waiting in a doctors waiting room and picked up a old Time magazine from August 4th 2014 and began to read a article entitled Meet the Internet’s Most Powerful Man “The man who wants to remake the Internet does not wear a hoodie. He just owns the cables. Now he’s after more. Meet Brian Roberts, the King of Comcast” written by Haley Sweetland Edwards . You can’t read the whole article unless your a subscriber. I will be referencing the article when I post according to the Times article, the hard copy found it’s way home with me from the doctors office.
This how thing’s looked at the time according to the Time’s article.
That my friend is one of the problems with all these mergers. Everyone has to use one of the big boy’s lines so you can get Internet and the field is getting smaller and smaller. It’s also where it get’s kind of complicated and you have to pay attention to who you listen to when it comes to “Net Neutrality”. “Net Neutrality” is making for some strange bed fellow’s. It may look like liberal-progressives and republicans or conservatives are talking or concerned about the same thing but they are not. First of as far as elected officials are concerned it looks like it all about money, lobbyist and campaign donations of course. According to the Times article “Roberts has amassed one of the largest lobbying and political-influence operations ever created”. He also golf’s with Obama.
“President Barack Obama returned to the Vineyard Golf Club on Martha’s Vineyard today for another golf outing — this time with Brian Roberts, chief executive of Comcast, parent company of NBC Universal.”
“The president’s August vacation on the Vineyard has included a number of informal events with media players. On Tuesday, the president and first lady Michelle Obama attended a party at the home of NPR host Michele Norris Johnson and her husband Broderick Johnson, who was an adviser on Obama’s 2012 campaign.” Read more here.

Cozy With Comcast: Fred Upton, Greg Walden, Architects Of GOP Net Neutrality Plan, Receive Big Cable Cash Check this one out, Does Comcast Own Washington? and this one, How Comcast Has Washington In Its Pocket To be fair there is this but in no way does it compare to his competitor in my opinion.

Another interesting thing form the Times article I didn’t know about. “for the price of 45-megabit-per second(MPS) download speeds, U.S. broadband ranks 30th out of 33 developed countries, according to a recent report by the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development.” “In Hong Kong, 500 MPS cost $35 per month; in San Francisco Comcast’s fastest download speed is, 105 MPS, runs you $114.95”. What’s up with that?

As always God bless America and you.
