FCC approves plan to allow for paid priority on Internet

FCC approves plan to allow for paid priority on Internet

The Federal Communications Commission on Thursday voted in favor of advancing a proposal that could dramatically reshape the way consumers experience the Internet, opening the possibility of Internet service providers charging Web sites for higher-quality delivery of their content to American consumers.

Yep, the rich get richer and the poor get "stupider". Republicans are doing the Net Neutrality dance. Thanks FCC.

Climate change? Debatable. Evolution? Debatable. Medicare? Debatable. Tax breaks for the rich? Science.- LOLGOP

The World Is A Safer Place Without Saddam

“That’s right, the forecast for this weekend is 'Benghazi.'  Make sure you bring a straitjacket.” – Bill Maher

These Two Aren't Spineless Democrats + You Get Two For The Price Of One!

Bill and Hillary Clinton are fighting back against critics as if they are waging another campaign, the clearest sign yet that, perhaps, they are. The former secretary of state and her former president husband are defending their records, showing off their health and humor and raising money for fellow Democrats, fresh indications that Hillary Clinton has her eye on running for president in 2016.

According to a new survey, 55 percent of Americans think that they are smarter than the average American. Said the average American, “55 percent? That’s almost half.” - Seth Myers

Republican Shenanigans

Clarence Thomas Supports State Religion

...Thomas, however, wants to turn back the clock. If policymakers in your state chose today to establish Christianity as the official state religion, Clarence Thomas believes that would be entirely permissible under the First Amendment. So long as Congress didn’t pass the law, he says, it’s kosher.

“The Republicans don’t know what to do with the pope, because they’ve got to love him because he’s a religious leader, he’s the pope. But, he says things like 'redistribute wealth.' He sounds like Elizabeth Warren!” – Bill Maher

Rock The Voter News

Now that Americans are getting wise to the dangers of being spied on by the government, they have to start getting more alarmed about spying on each other. Because, if the Donald Sterling mess proved anything, it’s that there’s a force out there just as powerful as Big Brother: “Big Girlfriend.” - Bill Maher

    The Benghazi Bandwagon Wants To Visit The Senate

    Three dozen Republican senators are calling on Majority Leader Harry Reid to establish a select committee to investigate the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya.
    In a letter released Thursday by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), the 37 Republican senators said the Senate only has a “partial view of the facts” about the attacks on a U.S. compound that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

    Wall Street Retreats as Earnings Disappoint. Well, Yeah, Low Wage Workers Can't Afford To Buy Stuff

    The stock market slumped on Thursday after a drop in small-capitalization stocks and disappointing results from Wal-Mart.

    A day after Donald Sterling's explosive interview with CNN, Anderson Cooper sat down with Magic Johnson for a follow-up interview. And Magic actually said he's praying for Sterling. Yeah, he’s praying for him to get stuck in an elevator with BeyoncĂ©’s sister. - Jimmy Fallon


    Anti-Benghazi and GOP Clowns Tip Jar

    This is how I feel sometimes after reading about the Republican Shenanigans of the day. Which one should be the top story? So many to choose from!
