Hail Caesar, or Hail Comcast.

You decide! The F.C.C. got shot down over its proposed stance on net neutrality, and so why do you care, right? Problem is the Tea Bag party is framing the debate in terms of a victory for the less government is more better crowd. Aka, how dare the government tell businesses in a free market how to run! Except... this is Comcast, who, depending on where you live and who you ask, has nothing keeping it check when it comes to issues of controlling bandwidth, among other things. I don’t want the government interfering in my life beyond fixing potholes and funding schools either, but how is letting a corporate monopoly dictate access to service without competition any better?
