The issue of net neutrality has nothing to do with big corporations controlling or destroying the internet as Franken suggests and everything to do with another government takeover of yet another industry and one so important to freedom as the internet. Just look at the role the internet played in Egypt and elsewhere in the middle east and even in Japan's tragedy! We must NOT allow the FCC to take control over this resource!
Ugh, way to completely misunderstand the issue. He's trying to keep government regulations (and corporate interference) AWAY from the internet.
Put this way... I like coffee and I buy a pound a week it costs me about 5 dollars a pound. My friend owns a starbucks he buys a ton of coffee a week... shoul he also pay 5 dollars for the ton? Big telcis want to charge big users for the bandwidth they use... why shouldn't they? Anyway under net neutrality someone would have to regulate it and who do you think that would be...? The FCC is already got their foot in the door if we lose this battle we're done!

So, for those people who were arguing how "free speech" includes the "right" to "say whatever I want" no matter what the outcomes of your free speech are for other people (including getting people killed from your right to draw pictures that incite riots etc.), now I...
