'The Dam Is Breaking,' Declare Net Neutrality Defenders After First House Republican Backs CRA

Jessica Corbett, staff writer

"The dam is breaking, as it should," an ACLU director declared on Tuesday after Rep. Mike Coffman of Colorado became the first House Republican to sign a petition to force a vote on a measure that would reinstate net neutrality protections that the GOP-controlled Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rolled back in December.

Speaker Ryan should be dangled from the nearest yardarm and flogged with all of the works of the author of The Virtue of Selfishness, Ayn Rand, that is. Once the sharks appear, he should be lowered to a level just out of the reach of their merciful mouths–in perpetuity.

Disagree, I say lower him all the way, and let the feeding begin.

The problem with this, is with Ryan leaving, no one has any leverage over him. If he’s received any bribe money from the telecom. giants (and I expect he has), than this will never be brought up for a vote on his watch.

The sharks have definitely read Ayn Rand, so they won’t even have to hang Ryan very far over, for the Virtues of Sharky-ness to take over. : )
