The FCC Has Repealed Net Neutrality...

Almost two weeks after Republicans in the U.S. Senate approved a shitty tax bill that would add around $1.4 trillion to the national deficit and take health coverage away from 13 million Americans, another Trump era-related abomination took place today when the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to repeal net neutrality. What that means is, internet providers like Verizon and Comcast will have the ability to block content that folks look at on the Web...and even potentially force Americans to pay to use currently-free online services like Google, YouTube and Twitter. On the plus side though, Congress and the nation's courts have the ability to block this repeal from taking effect. The downside though, is that Congress is led by the Republicans...and it's the corporations (like Verizon and Comcast) and the GOP members who receive donations from them who'll benefit the most from the end of net neutrality. So once again, America's First Amendment principles are threatened by conservatives using Donald Trump's so-called presidency to enhance their greed at the expense of ordinary citizens throughout the United States.

All I can say is, Eminem needs to write a new rap song about the FCC and its corrupt chairman, Ajit Pai—telling them to go fuck themselves. Hell, include the GOP and Trump in his song while he's at it. November of 2018 can't come soon enough... We need the Democrats to regain control of the House and Senate and punish folks like Pai for their obstinacy and insolence towards this great country. That is all.

Ajit Pai is yet another idiot U.S. government official who needs to be fired in the Trump era.
