This dovetails in with a lot of folks’ worst nightmare. The FCC recently appeared to ok AT&T and Comcast manipulating access and download speeds and data amounts. We saw how Mubarak in Egypt cut web access there, and infuriated people. Let’s hope that the people of Wisconsin get the word out, and are as angered about this as the people of Egypt were. For all the conservative talk about free speech, it now seems that free speech only applies if you agree with the conservative line. This could be a sad day for America, or the beginning of some real change for the better. It’s up to the people!
