Cable's Top Lobbyist Declares Net Neutrality 'Irrelevant.'

What was it Upton Sinclair said again?

Wasn't it "Life is a swirling, sucking, eddy of despair - filled with brief moments of false hope - in an ever-blackening universe."

Or something along those lines.

Of course the one I was going for was "It's hard to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on him not understanding it," but I bet you and Beam already knew that.

There's a fool-proof way to tell if something a conservative/right-wing/Republican said is true or not. If they call it "fake news", you can be sure it's the solid truth.

Ugh, shit like that shouldn’t be legal. There are SO many small towns who can’t get decent internet because their lawmakers were bought out. In my state, there’s a small ISP that’s all fiber. They go to small towns and say “we’ll make sure everyone within the city limits, and some outside, can get fast, reliable internet. We’ll put in an office in the town square if possible, so that we’re easy to find if you need help.” It’s a smart plan. I used to work for them, but they pinch pennies worse than any company I’ve ever worked for, and I cost too much due to prior experience.
So now I work for at&t. That small company has decided to take on the capital city here. We’re also putting in fiber everywhere, and we’re racing that small company to get coverage. First one to get fiber into a neighborhood gets that neighborhood. We have techs loaned in from 4 other states to help push it in our favor.

THAT is how it should go. Not blocking people’s access with legislation. Provide, or lose the area to someone who will.

I believe it was "life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you just might miss it."

Pretty sure that was him.
