It really bothers me how US society collapses race & ethnicity into one so people don’t understand the difference.
Wow, this looks a lot like that Season 3 of Sherlock gif I found…

Newly anointed Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler said this week that it would be OK for Internet service providers to charge Netflix and other companies for a faster lane to consumers.
Wheeler’s stance is surprising given that it appears to contradict the FCC’s Open Internet Order, passed under his predecessor in 2010. That order, which sets out the country’s network neutrality rules, says that fixed broadband providers may not “unreasonably discriminate” against any type of traffic. The order specifically calls out pay-for-play arrangements as being potential violations.
Wheeler (a former lobbyist for the cable and wireless industries) spoke positively about the order but said he wouldn’t mind if Netflix has to pay for a faster lane to consumers while answering questions Monday after a policy speech at Ohio State University.
"I am a firm believer in the market," he said. “I think we’re also going to see a two-sided market where Netflix might say, ‘well, I’ll pay in order to make sure that you might receive, my subscriber receives, the best possible transmission of this movie.’"
This is horseshit. The level playing field of the internet is what makes it such a powerful place for new, disruptive ideas. I shared Humans vs. Zombies and Cards Against Humanity online when I was flat broke, and I was able to do that because I didn’t have to ask for permission or pay anything extra to make those things available. The same is true of Tumblr, Google, Facebook, YouTube, Kickstarter, and just about every other internet company that you love and use.
Edit: Spytap adds,
Without any element of hyperbole, if “former lobbyist for the cable and wireless industry” Tom Wheeler gets his wish, it’s the end of the internet as a medium for societal and commercial transformation. There is no more efficient way to kill every single iota of progress and momentum that’s built up over the past 25 years than by creating preferential lanes on the internet.
It. Will. Die.
And anyone willing to be so mindbogglingly shortsighted over what can be counted amongst the greatest inventions of mankind has no business wielding any sort of authority over its subsequent evolution.

This right here is one of the fundamental failures of American government: a FORMER FUCKING LOBBYIST for an industry becomes the person who oversees the regulations affecting that industry, and then goes directly back to working in that industry after they leave their “oversight” role.
It is corrupt. It is wrong. It is broken. It will never stop, even if we burn the whole fucking place to the ground.
Max is right. This is horseshit.
i cant believe a large group of adult men rigged a survey to vote for the best animated kids show of 2013 by creating scripts that automatically vote for my little pony a million times i feel like were living in a bizarro alternate universe of the real true timeline where bronies are fairytale creatures that only exist in legends
