Control freaks :down Freedom in America is truly DYING
 
You wouldn't believe how surprised I was that this thread wasn't about illegal immigration
 
Bloggers—Costs will skyrocket to post and share video and audio clips—silencing citizen journalists and putting more power in the hands of a few corporate-owned media outlets.

I wouldn't miss the bloggers

Probably Bush's. He want's to **** up America any way possible before his term is up
 
^Whilst that is certainly true, I don't think we can blame this one on his highness. The prodigal son's only interest in the "internets" is a moral one. This one is on the people in the House (which is controlled by Republicans, though) that are in the pockets of big business. This would really serve their masters well.
 
Its a bill being introduced and I doubt if "xxx" never got passed that they would pass this either.

Yeah, but "XXX" was different. As big as the porn business is, the telecoms are bigger. Unless you see a relationship between the two that I don't.
 
I'm still floored by this....that is so wrong
 
****ing America is controled by companies. Nothing new, really, but seriously, this might affect people from other countries in the future.

I doubt it will get passed, either. ICANN has been pretty clear that they won't be enacting any policies that the U.S. government tries to push in the name of morality or infringing upon the freedom of the internet and that includes giving businesses an advantage over consumers in such a way. That said, our government does suck for attempting such things and it's a blatant example of how the current Republican regime is in the pocket of lobbyists.

And you seem to forget how many of these similar types of things the telecommunication industry has lost in the past. The telecoms have gotten the ***** beaten out of them the last 15 years...this will be just another failed attempt by them to counter the growing threat of the internet to their profits.
