I'm all for ensuring ISP's cannot limit yoru speeds based on application usage, but why does it take a stack of papers to say something that should take a paragraph. I'm curious as to what else is buried in there.

I think some people are missing the point. Before, we had instances where ISP's (Comcast, Cox, Mediacom, ect) would slow your connection based on your application usage (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, ect.). They didn't provide "Fast" lanes, just the basic connection and at least 75% of advertised speeds. What these ISP's were doing was slowing your connection speed when using services from content providers that were not them. For example, Comcast got in hot water for throttling connection speeds for people watching Netlix because it would take so much bandwidth. Now with net neutrality, they cannot legally do this. Unfortunately, now ISPs (Such as Mediacom) cap your usage. IE, i pay for 30mb d/l speeds, but my usage is capped at 250GB per month. That is used up quite fast with Netflix. They are providing me a constant speed, but capping my usage and when i go over that, they charge for it.
Just follow the money. Warren Buffett is a big supporter of Obama's: http://www.chicagotribune.com/chi-obama_thuaug16-story.html Mr. Buffett's company, Berkshire Hathaway Inc., owns BNSF (US' 2nd largest railroad): http://www.businessinsider.com/warren-buffetts-bnsf-deal-2014-11 BNSF transports a ton of oil: http://www.bnsf.com/customers/oil-gas/ Currently, BNSF transports much of the tar sands oil from Canada: https://www.bnsf.com/customers/oil-gas/home.html If keystone gets approved, their stock will take a big hit (BNI). Obama will fight this all the way guised as "protecting the environment". Even though oil is already being transported. Additionally, transporting by rail is Much more dangerous than by pipe. Truth, if you look even a little, is that Obama is protecting the hand that feeds him. I'm surprised this isn't brought up in the news or even on this site. That said, if you own stock in BNI and it looks like keystone will go through (miraculously), you better dump that stock.
I think you forgot to read the entire post. Abortion should be illegal after 5 months NO MATTER WHAT: REGARDLESS if that individual was raped or not. On that note, i'll say we're basically in agreement, but your reading comprehension left some to be desired in this instance.
calm down there hotshot. I'm all for reporting rape as soon as possible, but forcing someone to report it when they do not want to isn't needed in the bill. I think an individual should have the Freedom to choose whether to report it or not. Abortion is a separate from this issue. Abortion should be illegal after 5 months no matter what; Regardless if that individual was raped or not.
Two completely different subjects. Does the murdered have the choice in the matter you described (if found)? You're comparing two very different things. The person raped should have the choice. A more reasonable comparison is deciding to press charges or not in crime against you where you're not deceased. IE - domestic abuse comes to mind where the woman (if beaten) decides to press charges or not.
I can see her apprehension in the wording of the part that "required" women to report all rapes to the authorities. While encouraging to report all rapes would be highly beneficial, some may not want to and should not be forced to. This doesn't really fall in line with abortion anyway. Have the law clean cut. No abortion for women pregnant more than 5 months. Done.
Great list. Too bad i don't think it has a chance with the current leadership republican or democrat controlled congress.
I look forward to the day where i have something similar to this in my kitchen. My ideal day (when i don't want to cook (AKA grill)) is wake up, program in what i want for dinner so when i come home from work it's all set to go and i just need to take it out of the finished product containment area and eat it. I bet this will be available in the next 30 years even.
