State attorneys general are now threatening lawsuits against the federal government's repeal of "net neutrality" rules.

New York's attorney general says he'll lead a multistate lawsuit to stop the Federal Communications Commission's rollback of rules that guaranteed equal access to the internet. Democrat Eric Schneiderman has been investigating fake public comments submitted to the FCC during the net neutrality comment process.

Schneiderman says his analysis shows 2 million comments stole the identities of real Americans, including dead people and children.

5. My guess is that

a whole lot of our population has such crappy service that it matters little to them. Seriously, until a couple of weeks ago when our only wireless carrier out here provided us with speeds that left a 30 second gif loading for 4 or 5 minutes. Now we have a rapid, for us, 20-30 mbps. We are in the boonies but not THAT far. My friend in SW Kansas still has dial up. Why would they care out there and there is a lot of out there out there.

Yes, we have been trained to bend over and take it haven't we? So sad sometimes to see and hear what people say and they never seem to understand the odd conflicts in their ideas.

I saw a Church sign last week that said, "If there was not a Christ then why do we have Christmas?" Small town, very small and this was just one of the 4 churches in their 4 block Main Street. Who needs Internet?
