Man Who Doesn't Know Shit About a Thing Is Going To Fix It

John McCain has introduced a bill to block net neutrality.
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.

it's just a matter of chosing the right man for the job. most of americans can´t use a computer, so you need someone who doesn't use a computer to teach you how.
macain should have stayed in ´nam, like, cold and stiff.
btw, what that bill means is just another step towards the alienation of u.s. citizens.
you people already have a hard time pointing out your own country in on a map, you're told what to wear,what music to hear and what celebrity to follow, now someone will decide for you wich porn site you can access. i think they have that in china or some shit. it's great

Didn't Ted Stevens try to pass something like this before he was slapped on the wrist for embezzling state funds for building his cabin?

As if the internet in this nation doesn't suck enough. If he ruins my Xbox Live somehow I'll shove a macbook air up his ass.

Most people don't know how bad their internet is compared to other places.
