This is great news. I legitimately thought that the $94 million of “campaign contributions” was a force too great for the working class to overcome. I am please to see that it looks as if I was wrong.

I want to tirade on something here…

I started frequenting the internet in the mid 90’s, and I never lost the mindset of the internet of that time…that is was a medium, based on the free exchange of ideas, and could be the one area of our lives where we were safe and free from governmental and corporate dictatorship. It’s all virtual. The only thing you’re looking at right now is based on ones and zeros! That’s it! Therefore, I strongly oppose any and all efforts to pull the internet further and further from what it was 15 years ago.

To put it bluntly, I am for separation of internet and state.
