It's a buzzword for demanding federal control of the internet, to remedy the government-caused problem of last mile providers who are protected from competition by local cable monopoly privileges.

All we need to solve the problem of the Comcasts and the Time-warners of the world is to expose them to competition.

> Fake violence, like two guys punching it out, clearing the air and getting on with no lasting harm and no festering resentment.

A punch can bring serious injury or death. It's serious business, and the law recognizes it as such.

If someone won't stop punching you, people who carry weapons can use them in their defense.

It's cute how you completely ignore that there are people who would 100% vote FOR a person because they were a woman and/or gay. Those on the left ADORE such people. I suspect the support FOR such a person is, these days, approaching the level of the bigotry AGAINST such a person so as to cancel each other out.

Similar is the harping on the left about the racism Obama overcame to become elected, completely ignoring the racism that worked FOR Obama, who achieved about 95% of the black vote. This put him over the top... most white people did not vote for Obama (feel free to look it up), it was the fact that black people voted as a block and almost exclusively for him that the man is now president.

Never say you know a man until you have divided an inheritance with him.
