They used to hide their profiteering under propaganda that it is " good for us" but now they just tell us flat out hey we are doing it and there is nothing you can do. They no longer even need to lie because they have obtained total control of the system. What other evidence does one need to realize they have formed a dictatorship? The last voice we had is online so the dictatorship wants it. It represents our ability to form discourse and dissent. Today with the repeal of Net Neutrality they will achieve total control of the masses....it is the final nail in the coffin to our divine right to freedom. The internet is not just a mall or shopping space...it is a library of knowledge as well allowing the people access to learn to TEACH OURSELVES TO FISH!! It gives us independence and enriches our lives. Not only does it create innovation and enrich the economy with everyday small entrepreneurs .. It has paved roads into the arts and humanities, literature, the fine arts, music, mathematics...self reliance and self sufficiency ( traits Trump pretends to love while he salivates at the bit to strip it from us)

And rest assured we do pay $$$$$ to access all this wealth of information....more than we pay for our heating oil per year$$$$...but that should not be the case not only is this public library not held in the commons /paid for with taxes, it has been hijacked by monopolies who want to control what we see and to profit and gauge us while doing it. This repeal of Net Neutrality is a crime against humanity. Ajit Pai should be investigated for his conflict of interest and possible Verizon shares and holdings as well as any agreements of retirement or future promises of employment. The fact that he was even appointed is a crime to start with having come directly from his work as an attorney for Verizon. And one man has the power to rob the entire nation of something that is so cherished by the people is completely astonishing and clearly the oversight boards have become completely corrupted simply offering the companies they oversee extra special benefits and loooholes since corporations do not have to follow the laws of the people, instead we gave them regulatory boards corrupted with their own agents. Proving we people are treated as seperate and unequal to corporations under the existing system. They even have their own system of taxes separate and priveledged to that of real people. Pai will be remembered always through history as a shameful pitiful selfish glutton ...who cares not one bit about his legacy or the freedom of the masses above his own luxurious lifestyle. Verizon and Comcast must be DISBANDED which is constitutional and we must take the internent by eminent domain to be forever put in the public domain As the Free Library of the People for the People and by the People.

if democrats want to prove they work for the people and not corporations...they need to hold massive press conferences about this issue and scream I mean literally scream ....in rage and anger on behalf of the people...like where the fuck are they?

I guess they are just pretending they are against all this stuff because I can't imagine a more silent half assed stab at getting our voices heard.

DEMOCRATS it is your fucking job to get the voices of your people heard...do your fucking job. Your strategy is piss poor and embarrasing ...I'm a fucking feminist and forcing Franken to resign was incredibly stupid and it backfired The media doesn't care if Trump has little children chained to a basement bed....they don't care about child labor in China ...it is all about money. MONEY FOR THE RICH....they aren't going to get Trump to resign and that psycopathic Narcissist isn't going to have shame he will spin the children as he treats them better than they would have prostituting in a Thai whore house...and the media will go after a Democrat about something totally unrelated. Are you getting it now...they work for him. You need to get our voices heard. Do your fucking job.

And for Ted Cruz...let's take away all your money and education and your fancy digs...set you up with a nice WalMart job for the next year or maybe you can work at Target or McDonalds...and we will see how you feel after a year or two - you won't know when or if it will end or get better...we will see if you get tired of being stuck in the grind. Being you aren't a handsome fellow and rather old to get hired anymore they will probably steal some wages and threaten to fire you if you ask for the money or report them. So you will keep quiet and hope to God that they don't anyway because you keep having health issues and need days off to see a doctor. They don't offer insurance so you trudge your way to a free clinic and get some shoddy care for your inflamed gallbladder from all the stress of being ugly and on the edge of being homeless everyday and the stress of your gallstones causes you more stress until one day you collapse and have to have an ambulance and emergency surgery. After you get released you get back to your appartment after taking the bus home since you dont qualify for a car payment on your salary and you walk the rest of the way home to find the neighbors in your rental blasting their music but your absentee landlord doesnt give a shit so you go to bed and shiver yourself to sleep still in pain because you couldn't afford your prescription after your rent was paid. All the people at work just laugh at you as you shuffle around work with your broom sweating the next day because you are just ugly and old and dried up man and " falling off the vine" in the opposite direction of cream.... and hey you know it is survival of the fittest. It's the new America man. And since you aren't able to perform your job fast enough now and republicans deregulated disability and ssi and fought against sick leave you get fired. And to top off your year you get a $100,000 hospital bill in the mail since noone checks up on pricing and there are no more social services And now you ...? Rely on the kindness of empaths and snowflakes like me ...you know the ones fighting to help the little guys and who see beyond your little bird face to the human being inside of that shriveled up skin and overweight beltline... who worked hard but despite all that hard work fell to the bottom of a system rigged against him. Hug a Snowflake today for tomorrow they may be the one who saves you...even after you discarded them. But oh in a just world Ted Cruz...this scenario would be mine and you would be forced to eat your words. And didn't god say the meek shall inherit the earth. Not that they would own it like republicans want to monetarily...but that their kindness and sensitivity would spread.

Another point to make...everytime the public is forced to fight these unregulated monopolies from taking more of our freedom treading on us...we pay. We pay and pay while they continue to not pay raises and not pay taxes and take all their extra money to sue us so they can get even more of our money. This pattern needs to stop. They bribe congress get their agents on the so called regulatory boards that oversee them...they make more money to bribe congress to make laws that further benefit deregulate and lower taxes...and then they make products in China with child slaves, and headquarter offshore to further reduce tax...and it just isn't enough they will take and take and never pay it forward. Unregulated monopolies and a bloodline of investment subsidiary partnerships has done this country no good nor has it helped the poor wage slaves or young girls working in front of the plastic ovens to make toys. I mean when is this going to stop? Can people be this evil. They are worried about two men kissing or a woman pausing her egg production with a pill...but they can't seem to hone themselves in on what these companies are doing and the evil they perpetuate? They are killing our freedom and our way of life to do goodness. It is all backwards...is this who we want to be?We mjst kill corporate rule. Move to Amend and disband monopolies. Prevent human cruelty, and suffering and poverty and monopolization of markets that create the circumstances that cause it.

Politicians: "listen up people give us your lunch money...this will work out (somehow even though trickle down never once has) trust us...now empty your pockets you little whiny snowflake bitches.

Oh and we are also going to take over the one market place you had left to earn some extra pocket money...and turn the internet into a high rent mall....where we also control all of the communication to our benefit...but that is (somehow) good for you too trust us it will all work out to your benefit...now hold still while I put this tape over your mouth and empty your pockets. What there is nothing in there well now... we are going to rough you up real good and your family too and dump you in the gutter because you deserve it you lazy weakling whiny snowflake little bitch"

Republicans have now made a bill to make the repeal of net neutrality permanent under a bill that says it is protecting internet freedom..." we are going to fix net neutrality"...the right wing propaganda machine has put it out there that net neutrality is bad for the people...claiming it does exactly what the repeal of it does high prices and throttling....let's rename the color white black while we are at it...or blue, red if you say it enough times it makes it true?

The major news outlets continue to debate this as a complicated issue as though Net Neutrality is a new concept because it wasn't in place prior to 2015...what they fail to mention is it came into inception when your ISP carrier discovered they could get more money if they dipped into the content going through their lines. The equivalent of your electric company charging per appliance. They began to make moves to start throttling ( slowing service) charging more and actually charging customers surprise overage fees by hundreds of dollars per month based on use in areas of the country ( and without first notifying them of the changes just sent them bills they had to fight and dispute probably ruining their credit in the process since comcast frequently breaks credit reporting laws as well). Phone carriers were charging fees for facetime and blocking access. So the Net Neutrality law came into place as a REACTION to the telecom overstepping and trying new ways to bend rules and screw the consumer. It is really quite simple to understand though they continue to propagandize it as a complicated technological issue us commoners couldn't possibly understand. Sure....ok

As well as the Public RF Spectrum (public airway channels) was leased out to major telecom which is owned by the people. Obama sold off the commons and the very least that could be done was to ensure they didn't also dip into controlling the content. It was the equivalent of selling the national parks and allowing corporations to charge an entry fee but preventing them from charging more for you to visit certain areas in the park.

And obviously the media has a connectiin to telecom. They want their stocks to go up ...the media and Trump pretend to ba at war...when they are actually bed fellows holding the same investments. Just as no corporation should own national parks or libraries...no corporation should own the internet. Especially since the RF Spectrum already belongs to us. We need public broadband. The internet is a public common and I'll be damned if any corporation can set up on our sidewalks and charge a fee to pass through the area. But I wouldn't be surprised given what they have just done.

At least on the street I could find a different road to take...however the same three companies own the entire road system when it comes to the internet...and to top it off they are price setting. Their hedge funds probably contain partnered investments. All of this was set in place when the Supreme Court unleashed Citizens United decision and government lobbying grew to unprecedented levels and began catering to monopolies ...no longer enforcing anti- trust laws. The revolving door of agents from companies into government and back h,is out of control. We don't regulate if some Verizon executive like Ajit Pai can sit in a suppossed regulatory committee change the rules to favor his company and then head back to it when he has done their dirty work or the gifts he is allowed to receive. We also do not check to make sure the politician appointing him doesn't also have cinflicts of interest and investments. It is all so crooked.

I personally don't enjoy being used and sucked dry so billionaires can buy more yachts. Of course they will say it is good for us. The same way Hex Chrome is. They don't care if they poison kill or suck America dry...the rich are on the take in ways that are murderous, unethical, and stomach churning. We the people have become wage slaves and hosts to their parasitic behavior. All they see is a source ...we are just slush funds and batteries And basically...PREY. They don't care about Americans. They care about their mansions and parties and golden umbrella stands. Their values have become so skewed it is scary. If you ask them which matters more a human life or that umbrella stand...they would probably tell you a lie...meanwhile if it came down to it...they value the stand and would take a life to protect it. They are nothing but white collar thugs. They steal and murder sanctioned by our own government from behind a curtain soon to be an iron curtain thanks to the repeal of Net Neutrality.

The most fucked up part is they have all this money and they aren't even doing anything good or interesting with their lives. Their only point in life seems to be spending all their time making certain they have more than everyone else. What a sad empty hollow existence. They aren't forming connection, or learning, or doing anything special with their lives...even with all the means they have. These people aren't thinkers or innovators...they sit around all day thinking of nothing but keeping everyone else from being able to create or innovate so they aren't exposed for the boring empty shells in suits they have become. Imagine if the playing field were level and they actually had to compete ....they would lose. The thing is they don't have it. And they know it...they aren't special...so noone else is allowed to be. And if you try (or try to expose them)..."you're a spoiled privledged snowflake"...isn't it interesting that these real snowflakes are terrified to come down from their towers and compete on a level real playing field? Instead they play and stay the one their daddy most likely made for them...and their grand daddy before that. Aside from which they aren't even playing really, more like moving pieces around on a board that was already handed to them. Wow...how special is that? You want to prove you can do it ...give it all up and start from scratch with nothing in the current economy you created and prove to us you can get back there....hahhha ha has haaa haaa OMG ha haaaa has haaa haaa ahhhh has ha hhh..yeahhh.

Now that is a tv game show I would pay to see...millionaires and billionaires stripped of their credit, bank accounts, degrees, networks starting from scratch anonymously with new identities (ok give them $2000.00 - the amount the average American has in their bank accounts) and watch them compete to try to reaccumulate their wealth or get upwardly mobile without cheating. It would be the number one rated television show ever created. Any takers? Koch Brothers...Ted Cruz maybe Murdoch? Show us how we can do it. Show us how easy it is. Adding that you also presumably have some education and know how that will give you a bit of an edge to begin with right?Awww Too Scared? To make it interesting you could give an average joe with the same qualifications a few million and have them compete in there to see if it makes a difference what you have to start with. Now there is something worthwhile and interesting you can do with your time...put your money where your mouth is and test your theories in real life. If you lose you have to donate the maximum allowed amount to Elizabeth Warren for the next presidential election. Wait is there a maximum...? Well then 2 million per player? Or maybe you have to stop lobbying period. The name of the game show is Master of the Universe...so if you win you get to flaunt that you truly are the master of your own universe...and you will be able to back up your relentless efforts to have things your way with some actual proof it can be done and that your way is not total bs. I'll be watching for sure.

If I had to guess they have been slowing us all down in the prior months to get us used to it bit by bit....boiling us slowly. I doubt if Occupy will be part of any package? Or perhaps it will be bundled under political groups package...not to be included in the facebook twitter package which will remain separate from the job search package. And add an additional 20.00 for the music package, etc. Etc. And bye bye bloggers, self starters, artists, small business promoters, self published writers etc. ...was nice knowing you fairwell.

I wonder if minorities will have a separate internet altogether. Women too. I guess it is up to Verizon ...when those whose data they have probed disagree politically, I wonder if we will have access to job sites..or maybe just the ones they feel we are qualified for. When I go to learn something now or diy a project, or want to fix my car myself... I wonder what the handicappers general will decide I can access. I guess it is up to them now who we are allowed to be and what we are allowed to learn. I wonder if anyone can read this post or if only some or maybe none of you. I wonder if I'll be able to view the world of art and bloggers the way I have enjoyed. Or if instead I'll be redirected to Taylor Swift and Some monopoly shopping sight. Actually I don't wonder because we all know that wall street loves to force feed the masses like fois grois. The will pluck our every last hope and when we regurgitate their lifestyle they will bind us and starve us then pry our mouths open for another round of force fed garbage. Wall Street will torture us and take take to make us reliant... and then when we have nothing use us to fill their plates

I heard a rumor that the poor & minorities will get the pong channel for free - it might be a little slow - but that will add to the excitement fun & challenge of moving your paddle up or down the edge of your screen to wack the pong before it moves past the paddle.

As I understand it - The Left arrow button on the keyboard will be to move your paddle up and the right arrow button on your keyboard will be to move your paddle down - this will be to reflect reality of left right politics in the USA.

And let's not forget they repealed internet privacy recently as well. They will have a complete profile of every customer. Perhaps the power company should branch out from the government as well. They could be charging us per appliance. Fridge and stove package. Laundry room package. After all Americans haven't had raises in 20 years and housing and has been industrialized into a landlord monopoly costing a third of our incomes and more depending .... some like those in retail it is beyond their incomes.....surely we just have plenty to afford their insatiable need for apocolyptic wealth. They need yachts people! Now, pull yourselves together noone cares about your life..."row you snowflake row"

No because they are both from the country of stuffing the little guy ...I guess it is pretty unifying...like sports music and art Is for us.

Oh addiction I've gone dumb with rage...yes chips and internet...or actually addicted to knowledge...human beings are addicted to learning and connecting from the time we are babies we seek both. And porn yes there is that too. Which while I agree with Larry Flint...I just hate it...it is so incredibly bad for women. Especially now because men grow up on it...and have no concept of how to treat women right.
