Occupy why is this not headlining? It's a death blow!.... The new ruling means they can block, bundle, and slow down any sites they choose those who can pay receive the fast lane those who can't or who they deem unfit will have no access ...net neutrality is gone. Information blackout ...elite access to news and information hell even for jobs...did you purchase the Craig's list bundle?

Please keep posting about the court ruling this week this is the end of free speech and information ....telecom won court said they can no longer be regulated by the fcc since they are an information provider ....well, what I say to this is being that information is pivotal to society then it should be in the public domain instead of paying for access... i think we can take back the RF Wireless spectrum via eminent domain - we don't have to stand for censorship or monopolization and privatization of it.

Please repost this post I have a feeling the silence on here about this is due to corp infiltration downgrading the posts three I've seen have disappeared.

I am afraid you will have to turn to the "darkside" (rightwing) to find anyone that objects to our police state. Not sure why the so-called progressives/liberals are lining up for camp. Perhaps it's cuz they think they are the "intellectuals" who will rule in the new world order? Ha! There are plenty of dead Russians that could explain what it means to be a useful idiot

instead of downvoting my comment, why don't you have the balls to explain why we are not living in a police state, or, if you are not that good at lying, then just explain why we can rest easy because our Dear Leader would never misuse the state appartik?

I see. You have no logical argument or debate, but you DO have enuf karma points to stinkle. What a worm. I should put on my girl fuckday face and let you have it, cockroach. If you cannot refute my statement, then why downvote it?

[-] 3 points by elf3 (4203) 8 years ago

Well don't live on here didn't ... you're having an argument with yourself...so you still think either party represents us? Really? Who is the police state...it's wealthy mega corps who are paying both parties to turn us all into consumer and worker cogs...

[-] -3 points by dblstnd (10) 8 years ago

HUH?

1) I am trying to get the downvoter to my "darkside" comment to refute it instead of anonymously downvote it.

2) I do not think EITHER party represents us. I DO think, however, that the 2 parties control this country because they have managed to divvy up the social issues in such a way that they each appeal to about 1/2 of the country.

3) Since we are currently being ruled by the left, you WILL have to turn to the RIGHT to find anyone interested in protesting the police state. The LEFT would have had your back while Bush was Prez and will no doubt again in 2016 when our current misadministration is nothing more than a bad memory.

Sorry that wasn't clear to me with the down voting...c'mon really think about this ...ever watched wwf ...wrestling ....social debates are a show doesn't matter who got the votes they both get in and represent WS the good cop bad cop game is there to distract us don't you think?

Oh yeah. It's all Kabuki theater. Less filling/tastes great. Look at the latest budget deal. Unemployment cut off, military pensions cut,food stamps, but somehow that was a compromise between the 2 "sides". There are no red and blue politicos. They are all the party of green,

But the little cadre that controls this forum thinks that saying both parties are the same is the same thing as saying you are an anti gay,racist, misogynist, islamaphobe, anti baby murder (I mean choice). bible thumping. gun toting REPELICAN.

It's really ridiculous. Not sure how my gun is a threat to anyone and don;'t think there are many Americans that are NOT squeamish about late term, partial birth abortions (that Obama had no problem with as a Ill state senator).

Not sure if you have heard of the book Extortion ...Peter Schweitzer. He's affiliated with Breitbart I think, but he exposes DC politics in a very non partisan way since BOTH SIDES ARE THE SAME f'n crony capitalist criminals. Boehner is a pro at shaking down corporate America. I think there are 2 levels of corporate America. The top tier companies like GE, Google, Apple, Morgan Stanley, CITI, etc call the shots and the rest of corporate America resides in the 99%.

Yes and chemicals corporations create are a major source of birth defects that force woman to make a choice to have a child who will endure a life of suffering or spare them the pain it has devastated many families and noot many of us know what we would do if we knew for instance that our baby would be born without body parts or skin or with major brain damage... west virginians won't even know what may befall their unborn children since the chemical has not been studied. Teflon causes children to be born without arms and legs and there are endocrine disrupting chemicals in all our everyday products. Gmo foods are known to cause infertility in rats. Corporations and politicians have thrown the shiny keys at the poor expecting mother who is also a victim of this hidden crime and who has no recourse but who must bare the blame and brunt of it. Mostly I agree here with you we must look beneath the surface of all of this to find out the real truth of this play. What is most unbelievable is a very large majority of people have good hearts and want to do good things and we are letting those with filthy greed driven agendas control us divide us and ruin our nation: Not everything is red or blue or black and white and it's this all or nothing thinking that is allowing it to happen. Screw obama screw boehner neither one is preventing corporate america from having their way with us and our unborn children...kabuki dance for the masses and quite a mixed message if you really dissect their agendas and follow the money.

the 50% ratio of issues

may have shaken out naturally

due to constantly surveying the system

First, some background: In May 2010, the FCC issued rules meant to protect net neutrality, the principle that Internet service providers must provide access without prejudice to their customers. The ISPs, particularly the big ones like Verizon and Time Warner, don’t like this. They envision a world in which companies like Netflix and YouTube pay an extra tithe so that users can speedily stream content. A site like Truthdig, for example, might get a much shoddier connection. Former FCC chair Julius Genachowski struck a compromise position. Land-based Internet connections would continue to abide by net neutrality, but over the air broadband—the data used by your phone—could play by different rules. This was a major sop to industry, since more and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet.

Anyway, that’s now a moot point, as The Guardian reports:

Internet providers may be able to offer faster connections to preferred websites, or even block competitors, after a US appeals court ruled that regulators could no longer enforce the principle known as “net neutrality”.

In a case seen as having profound implications for the future of digital innovation and free speech, the US court of appeals for the District of Columbia ruled in favour of broadband giant Verizon, following a long-running challenge to the Federal Communications Commission’s rule-making powers.

so much for the daily show

relevant information requires very little bandwidth

i'm writing this in text

[-] -2 points by dblstnd (10) 8 years ago

This is NOT occupy. It's some DNC controlled website that would rather talk about a bridge closed by a politico without blinking an eye at the hypocracy therein, as OWS closed some bridges back in the day when they were marching and actually had a following.

Their paymasters cannot wait to control the internet and take our guns. They already have our pictures, biometrics and dna.

Orwell would be surprised that reality is worse than his (what he thought ) fiction

[-] 3 points by elf3 (4203) 8 years ago

Yes that's true ...although they didn't get paid taxpayer money whilst doing so. ...whatever a politician using funds to pay for their own agendas is yesterdays news wow shocker I'm sort of perplexed actually that this is the focus at the moment when like you said even Orwell would be stunned though there may be one or two politicians we can still have faith in remember almost all of them are paid by mega corps those are the people taking guns and our internet the politicians are just their hired hands...occupy is an opposing force you and I have common ground occupy plus tea = green tea united!

orwell imagined a censored society with centralized observation

not an open society with public mass observation

[-] 3 points by elf3 (4203) 8 years ago

Soon to be censored and already centrally observed the only thing the masses will observe is the destruction of freedom and the end of self reliance how soon before we get our consumer identification card..."you know, to prevent fraud."..how soon before corporations bring back indentured servitude? Hmm want to stay in your house...lost your job to outsourcing...well you can work to stay in your home...homes are the latest currency ....since the dollar is dropping...

[-] 3 points by elf3 (4203) 8 years ago

Government = Corporation = economic fall = left = right = wealth vs regular folks = yeah they definitely aren't letting regular folks keep their guns = we are their consumer cogs = any and every type of control they can implement ...like this site or not, we are an opposing force us regular folks can keep arguing or like lately come together which is what I believe is the driving force behind the internet ruling...it terrifies the elites we are starting to agree so now they are going to keep us from communicating. Regular folks won't be able to afford it...only elites will have access and be able to afford to communicate...what better way to control regular folks than to blindfold them altogether.
