But more complete Internet access for visiting journalists would not mask a greater problem: Any government that can dictate the terms of using the World Wide Web, for good or ill, is too powerful.
Before sanctimoniously condemning the government of China, or the governments of dozens of undemocratic countries around the world, however, we might look carefully in the mirror, specifically at our own Congress. Addressing topics popularly known as "network neutrality," Congress is considering legislation that would give the federal government a clear mandate to stand between American consumers and their beloved Internet.
What does "network neutrality" mean? It's anything but neutral, because it involves the federal government limiting the set of choices that service providers may offer to consumers, a condition eerily similar to the power exercised in China.
Network neutrality is often framed as an issue over the government's role in limiting contractual relationships between Internet providers and consumers in one or more of the following areas: (1) fee structures for different levels of service; (2) limitations on access to some sites but not others; (3) priorities for different bits of information, such as favoring voice traffic over other traffic, or (4) limitations on how much broadband capacity one consumer may use.
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."

Right now I think the Pelosi Gang and most all of the left wing liberal media are more concerned with
"talk radio" they can't stand anybody having the freedom to DISAGREE with their slobbering socialist
do-gooding *****, especially when they try to compete and nobody listens to them, their answer to all this and their only weapon left is to "Forcibly Eliminate & Censor"
