Re: Trump: The only (known) paedo currently in the US Govern

I guess one positive about net neutrality relative to other corporate handouts is that it upsets a bunch of other huge companies that have the resources to sue. And courts are increasingly skeptical of agency rulemaking power thanks to stunts like this.
