John Thune selling out the Internet

Our neighbours seem to have much stronger opinions about Net Neutrality than North Dakota’s Senators:  You have Al Franken on one side, defending the open internet in defiance of his old bosses at Comcast, and then you have John Thune in South Dakota signing on with the pay-to-play crowd, yukking up about “opportunity” while showing off to FCC Commissioners the kind of small businesses that won’t be able to afford access to the marketplace if regulations allowing ISPs to double-dip go forward.

“Net neutrality” isn’t something new — it happens to be the way the Internet has always worked.  What has changed is that certain ISPs want to change the rules of the game, count things they shouldn’t and charge people they shouldn’t as many times as they please.
