Internet Bill of Rights?
« on: January 26, 2018, 05:02:26 AM »
AT&T ad: Facebook, Google should have neutrality rules too

AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson wrote, “Congressional action is needed to establish an ‘Internet Bill of Rights’ that applies to all internet companies and guarantees neutrality, transparency, openness, non-discrimination and privacy protection for all internet users.”

Stephenson posted the ad in the New York Times, Washington Post, and other national news outlets on Wednesday.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai repealed the agency’s 2015 net neutrality order which prohibited ISPs from blocking, throttling, or discriminating against content. Proponents of net neutrality argue that America needs the regulation to prevent ISPs such as Comcast or AT&T from unfairly blocking or censoring the Internet, however, the FCC and Breitbart News’s Allum Bokhari argued that under net neutrality, content providers such as Facebook and Google have censored the Internet, stifled conservative and alternative voices, and serve as a greater threat to free speech compared to ISPs.

Bad idea. So they want the Govt to create a set of rules to govern behavior regarding the Internet?
Does anyone else see this as a problem? They want to call it a Bill of Rights, the thing is, govt did not give us a Bill of Rights, we the people set restrictions on govt via our Bill of Rights.
So when dealing with Internet Providers, just follow existing law, but when dealing with users such as Faceplant or Twatter, it's their right to stifle speech, like it or not, our First Amendment allows them to block any speech they don't like, but it's also our right to avoid them at all costs.

We don't need new laws, what we need is govt out of the Internet altogether, stop stealing taxpayers money to support the likes of Marxist Google, cut them off at the knees which would open up the market and level the playing field.
Let the free mkt dictate winners and losers.
Why would AT&T want something like this, unless it ties the hands of their competition?

Libs are funny, they always want govt dictating laws that govern behavior, yet never once consider the option of free mkt dictating rules of behavior.

I don't think we would get the right to privacy in that bill. The internet finds out everything these days, even what girls a guy likes. This information in the wrong hands could give opposing forces enough information to prevent white American babies from happening. Their incursions have weapons and they are the sex trade, sexually transmitted diseases, and information on the targets.

They can call it whatever they like, just not a Bill of Rights, this waters down the meaning of the real one, the one forbidding Govt from interfering with our God given Rights.
So for Govt to give us Rights? Smacks in the face of its real meaning. It's like morons calling us a Democracy, the Founders went to great lengths to make it clear, we are a Republic.
