If you're against Net Neutrality or don't understand it you should watch this Burger King ad

Some people man. Some people. There are people out there who probably pay for their internet that were for The FCC repealing Net Neutrality. Polls have shown when it comes to The American People keeping Net Neutrality was and is not a partisan issue. Over 80% Americans wanted to keep Net Neutrality.

So the question is why did a government institution go against what we all wanted? It's simple really. It's what their pay master wanted. Look at who was against Net Neutrality. Internet providers like Comcast. Gee I wonder who won the pony when Net Neutrality was repealed? Was it you and me? The consumer? Hell no!

Getting rid of Net Neutrality is like if Burger King decided it wanted to push it's chicken sandwich over The Whopper so they decide to raise the price of The Whopper and give it a slower severing time. You don't have to imagine what that would be like. Burger King did a great thing and showed us what that would be like in this video. You should watch it.

Okay so if Burger King really did this you'd probably go to McDonald's or Wendy's instead. But when it comes to the internet if you get pissed off at your provider who else are you going to go to? When it comes to getting the internet it's not like we have a real choice. Say you live in Kotzebue like me you either have to get the internet from GCI for OTZ. That's it. Imagine if there were just two restaurants. Yeah you technically do have a choice of where you get your food. Two of them. But it doesn't really create a incentive for one to be better than the other when they know you only have one other place to go and the other place may not be even better.

The FCC is supposed to serve us. Not some greedy corporations. And if the time comes November our government can't figure this out we should tell them what's up with out votes.
