Big Dan's Big News Oct 23, 2009

Someone please check out McCain's campaign contributors and see who's benefitting from his "Internet Freedom Act", it's obvious he doesn't like neutrality and if it's not neutral, it will benefit his campaign contributors...not us! The man has no shame, and check out how he voted on rape below and won't comment on his vote when asked...put this "maverick" out to pasture, please! He does NOT have your interest and he's an embarrassment! The internet is fine just the way it is, anyone who's proposing something is trying to destroy it!

Once again, McCain/Republicans want to give it to EVERYONE up the the ass!!! And that means YOU, too, rightwingers/conservatives/Tea Baggers!!! McCain must be dying or something, he's totally off-the-charts, on a corporate blowjob rampage and standing firmly against the American people. Politicians like McCain so ARROGANT and OPEN about screwing ALL AMERICANS on behalf of corporations, I can't even believe it!!! Republicans are going to paint net neutrality as Marxism, government control, etc...ANYTHING THEY CAN! They're not telling you the part where Net Neutrality has gone through several administrations and is bi-partisan FOR ALL AMERICANS! McCain, of course, puts the word "FREEDOM" in it: the "Internet Freedom Act". See: The Patriot Act, The Clean Skies Act, etc...etc...etc...Snake Oil Salesmen! Spray some perfume on the SHIT and sell it to us. What's McCain's kickback on this one? John McKickback. McCain forgot ONE thing: to say "The Terrorists and Ahmadinejad want Net Neutrality, so you're FOR the terrorists if you're for net neutrality"! To put it another way: McCain and the Republicans want corporations to control the internet as they see fit. We know how that will turn out - see "the financial crisis" and where de-regulation and letting corporations roam free got us! There's a difference between government REGULATING something and CONTROLLING something. McCain wants you to think the government is CONTROLLING the internet with Net Neutrality, not REGULATING it so corporations don't destroy what we now have...and love! McCain will be taking a dirt nap by the time his bill devastates the rest of us. Am I stretching by predicting: FOX "news" will start a bunch of anti-Net Neutrality stories???

John McCain vs internet equality and freedom:

McCain is one of the 30 who voted FOR rape…and now he wants to FUCK you on the internet!!! McCain introduces bill to block Net neutrality

McCain's bill, the Internet Freedom Act, seeks to do the opposite of what its name implies by ensuring that broadband and wireless providers can discriminate and throttle certain traffic while giving preferential treatment to other traffic. Basically, those in power or those who pay more will have better access. Apparently we have different definitions of ‘freedom'.

Net Neutrality
We need to keep the Internet free, open and neutral. Network Neutrality is vital to ensuring that everyone can connect and share content freely, that we can access the information, visit the Web sites and say what we want online, free from discrimination or interference.

The big phone and cable companies that control access to the Internet for most Americans want to get rid of Net Neutrality, the rule that prevents them from discriminating against online content. They want to become the Internet's gatekeepers, deciding which sites go fast or slow and which won’t load at all — based on who pays them the most.

We can't allow the information superhighway to become the phone and cable companies' private toll road. If they get their way, the Internet as we know it — as a democratic platform for free speech and innovation — will disappear.

...and then read THIS, and realize what McCain is doing. The Republican Party stands firmly against the American people, and the Democrats are well on their way to joining them.

McCain introduces bill to block FCC's net neutrality rules. The new legislation would prohibit the agency from moving ahead with proposed regulations

Aug 13, 2008

Google is one of the strongest proponents of net neutrality, and there's no way in hell that company would support a policy that placed content regulations on their business. But who is actually censoring our communications networks? Verizon, for one, which refused to allow a text message from NARAL to be sent to their members, citing its 'unsavory' and controversial nature. AT&T, for another, which censored a web-casted Pearl Jam concert when the lead singer shouted out anti-Bush statements. And Comcast, which not only was caught illegally blocking file sharing by its customers, but has a history of blocking political ads on its cable service that criticize politicians company executives have given money to.

And lo and behold, these are the same companies that are seeking a McCain Presidency, as Amanda Terkel notes in her piece on McCain's tech policy.

The current campaign cycle is also shaping up to be lucrative. U.S. Telecom Association president and CEO Walter B. McCormick Jr., Sprint CEO Daniel R. Hesse, and Verizon chairman and CEO Ivan G. Seidenberg have each raised between $50,000 and $100,000 for McCain's campaign. AT&T executive vice president for federal relations Timothy McKone has raised at least $500,000.
