Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) introduced a bill in the Senate on Thursday that would effectively allow Internet service providers to slow down or block Internet content or applications of their choosing.How awesome does that sound? The US already has shockingly slow internet rates compared to the rest of the world, so we should allow companies to slow it down more. Or block whatever site they want to. Because they can. It's called the "free market" or "rape."
And we need a strong man, like McCain, to take care of the horrible problem of unfiltered internet reaching the masses.
John McCain says he doesn't know how to use a computer. In a video interview with Yahoo's Political team and Politico.com, McCain admitted he is computer illiterate. When asked if he preferred a Mac or a PC, McCain said "neither."
"I am a illiterate that has to rely on my wife for all the assistance I can get," McCain said. In a computer-dominated world, McCain's professed computer ignorance may raise questions again about his age. At 71, he is seeking to become the oldest person ever elected president of the United States.
Perfect. That's the dude who should write the bill.
