    This is pretty important, so take a good look. It's a petition for "Net Neutrality", which means:

    http://www.savetheinternet.com/=act Remember, this is our internet freedom, so take at least five minutes out of your day to sign this.

    Ah yes, I recall some congress man spewing shit about how it was important that we end Net Neutrality because his people had "sent him an internet that didn't arrive until the next morning."

    I assume that what he ment is that he had a crappy e-mail survice. Fucktard didn't have a clue what he was talking about.

    Ah... Ted Stevens. How you make my heart flutter. How you arouse me, speaking of your clogged tubes. It makes you wonder how they got clogged in the first place...

    First Amendment of the Internet... for one, this should probably be moved to the politics section. Two... the internet is not a body that is governed solely by the United States. The legal authority of the US Government is limited to the people using the internet within US borders.

    And if you really need to unclog your tubes, call a plumber. Or someone very kinky.

    Just remember folks:

    We need to get rid of Net Neutrality because The Internets are a series of Tubes. One of these tubes is known as The Google, wherein approximately 22.5% of the Internets resides. Another Tube is 'The Porno Tube', where approximately 99.9% of Internets Inhabitates reside'. Finally, we must regulate The Internets, because Internets Dwellers might use The Google Tube to get to The Porn Tube -- or even worse, The Foreign Media Tube.

    It is also important to note that the denizens of The Internets are causing the other Tubes to clog up.

    /sarcasm off.

    Every time I think I can't loose any more of my faith in humanity...is it really too much to ask that elected officials have a minimum competency level?

    Though it does make me wonder how exactly this will work for people outside of America.

    They need to be schooled again, I think. Times are changing, yet their knowledge of things isn't.

    Not good. Not good at all.
    That's quite possible. Ask Vash. :D
