Obama Calls for Ban on Internet 'Fast Lanes,' Tougher Regulation of Internet Providers

"It is common sense that the same philosophy should guide any service that is based on the transmission of information — whether a phone call, or a packet of data," Obama said.

Hey, why stop there? Newspapers are transmission of information too. I guess we have no Bill of Rights any more. Whatever happened to "Congress shall make no law..."?

The ruling class has been trying to grab control over the Internet ever since it slipped out of their hands as a military communication system. Ferreting out child porn didn't do it for them, but this mushy euphemism, "net neutrality", which boils down to marxism, might do it. The government schools have done their jobs; the people think government fixes problems rather than causing them. Maybe after "net neutrality" we should have equality in transportation, too. Force manufacturers to charge the same price for every car they make.
