ISPs are not cops, and never should be.

The big problem with representative Markey's Net Neutrality bill, is that it bequeaths onto ISPs the power to be police by giving them the responsibility to figure out which users are lawfully using the internet. For one thing that violates the due process clause of the constitution. For another it means that ISPs will inherently be able to watch our data... I have a big problem with that. That violates the prohibition ...more »

Regulatory Body

It is my proposal that the ISPs are required to submit to a regulatory committee the same information regarding the management practices and this committee is responsible for validating the claims. This would entail site visits and regulatory checks on the ISPs to ensure the companies are complying with their own management practices. I further propose this committee have a forum for users to place accusations and investigations ...more »

Net Neutrality = Big Bucks for Big Babies!

Giving the government control over anything is giving control to a big gang of babies who live in a world where the rest of us do not. The current government has spent record breaking amounts of money that it doesn't have, blamed it on previous governments, then is expanding it's control over every aspect of American's lives. That is not a democracy and this isn't either. No matter what you think of the current government, ...more »

The thing that is of concern to me: a line from chairman Genachowski recent press release: "...This means they cannot block or degrade lawful traffic over their ...more »

Limits on the collection and retention of personal data.

There needs to be very concrete limits on data collection. Governmental and private entities need to be limited to collecting the minimum amount of personal data necessary. Data that can be personally attributed needs to be kept for the minimum duration and it should only encompass the minimum data needed to accomplish a necessary task. Data that is not originally collected to be evidence should not be countable ...more »

Safe Driver? Improve your credit score.

I am no expert, but, I believe that the majority of the country has "so-so" or crappy credit scores. Why not design an incentive program geared towards promoting traffic and driver safety by improving their credit scores over time. For example, every six months if a driver goes without an accident or ticket, raise their credit score 10 points. It's no secret that America is a revolving melting pot of debt and bad credit ...more »

Government vs progress

Free speech on the internet could be limited should the Gov. gain any control over the ISP'S as has been stated the President could shut down the net should he feel in was in the interest of national security. This what socialist countries do when ever they feel the need to keep the people from info and communicating ideas that do not fit the socialist agenda
