See How Coons and Carper Vote on Net Neutrality

Filed in National by on May 16, 2018

The DE Senate delegation has another chance today to stick up for poor, abused multinational corporations.

Today, Senate Democrats will force a vote on whether to rescue Net Neutrality from the depredations of Vichy nerd Ajit Pai; the debate is streaming now and will continue until 3PM Eastern/12PM Pacific, when the Senate will vote.

… this vote will get every Congressperson and Senator who’s running for re-election in 2018 to publicly choose a side in the Net Neutrality debate. 87% of Americans want Net Neutrality; almost everyone who opposes Net Neutrality works for the telcoms industry or relies on them for campaign contributions.

    It’s not going to pass in the House, so it is a free Yes vote for Coons, Carper, and LBR. Their Republican friends will keep it from becoming law.

  2. bamboozer says:

    Truth! It will fail in the house, but not before it stains the Republicans as anti net neutrality. 87% of all Americans want net neutrality and near 100% for millennials, this is a loser for the Republicans, doubly so since it passed in the senate.

  3. Tom Kline says:

    90% of Americans have ZERO understanding of what net neutrality is moron.

  4. RE Vanella says:

    People are ignorant! Vast majority, even. Hmm, son. You may be onto something.

  5. spktruth says:

    To say that 90% of americans have zero understanding of what net neutrality is…makes you a moron Kline. Where did you get that number out of your arse.

  6. RE Vanella says:

    I has been a week of random numbers. Tom just wanted to join in.

    40% of the time it’s 19% effective to equivocate on 9% of the issues then you have a 47% change of playing to a nil nil draw 28% of the time.

    It’s science, so.

    Of course science says you should develop a hypothesis first before testing it. But I say having a defined hypothesis is a purity test. Fuck that noise.

    I’m going to try to get Blue Delaware to unblock me. They need to hear this.

  7. jason330 says:

    Good luck with that. I give you a 53% chance with a 8% confidence interval.

  8. RE Vanella says:

    I’ve adjusted the coefficients and rerun the algorithm. After new regression analysis and a quick out-of-time validation on a dataset of a more recent vintage I have a new result!

    The model has simply output this literary passage:

    “The evil that is in this world always comes from ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence, if they lack understanding. On the whole, men are more god than bad; that, however, isn’t the real point. But they are more or less ignorant, and it is this that we call vice or virtue; the most incorrigible vice being that of ignorance that fancies it knows everything and therefore claims for itself the right to kill. The soul of the murderer is blind; and there can be no true goodness nor true love without the utmost clearsightedness.” —Albert Camus, The Plague

    “Where did you get that number out of your arse.”

    This is an excellent question, because it goes to the issue of whether a bot has an arse.

    @REV “Of course science says you should develop a hypothesis first before testing it. But I say having a defined hypothesis is a purity test. Fuck that noise.”

    No it doesn’t. That’s called discovery based research. You don’t need a hypothesis to do that kind of science.

    You can just go out and discover what kind of idiot you are… that’s also valid science.

  11. RE Vanella says:

    She’s back! Strategy needs to be based on something, sweetheart.

  12. Liberal Elite says:

    You know… I don’t really mind being called “Mom” and “She”… But that you somehow think it’s a valid insult is somewhat troubling. In fact, it’s rank misogyny…. right up there.

    It’s no wonder women have been driven away from here, when you think being called one is an insult. And you’re not the only asinine progressive with this sort of problem.

    How about this as a starting strategy for progressives: no more misogyny.

  13. RE Vanella says:

    I treat all genders like shit. Have you notified how I treat Rusty Dils and Tom Kline. You’re not special.

    Your comments are dumb and your ideas are losers. If you are driven away it’s zero loss.

    You know where to go.

  14. RE Vanella says:

    I treat all genders like shit. You’re not special. You’re confused. If you don’t like it here you know where to go.

    Your comments and ideas are worthless at this point and it has zero to do with your gender.

    You’re so fucking stupid. You see the women we’re repping on here? Leftist aren’t misogynist. We just don’t like you and yours.

  15. Liberal Elite says:

    Hey… Don’t get mad. It’s just science.

    I’m just helping you to discover what kind of idiot you are.

  16. RE Vanella says:

    On a serious note, you know people take the piss out of me here on a regular. And I write under my own name. So all your complaints and crying fall pretty flat.

    We had the argument you want to have now. Had in 2015-16. Your way was exposed. We’re not doing it anymore.

  17. RE Vanella says:

    Ha. Trust me. I’m not mad. I’m mean and I don’t hide behind anonymity like a coward. If you want to teach me something write in your own name.

  18. RE Vanella says:

    Now would probably be a good time for everyone to circle back and review the Cunty Roosevelt saga from a few weeks ago.

    I’m not scared of any of you. I’m not anonymous. We’re dealing with nascent fascism and you want to play games. I’m not doing it.

    If your feeling are hurt go over to Blue Delaware, cry to them.

    Left is best.

  19. Liberal Elite says:

    @REV “We’re dealing with nascent fascism and you want to play games. I’m not doing it.”

    But you ARE doing it. You’ve made it very clear that you’d rather have a leftists only minority party, than a big-tent majority party.

    That’s a rather clear path to the fascism you claim to oppose.

  20. RE Vanella says:

    You’re no longer trust worthy on this topic for the reason I said. We did it your way. Doesn’t work. Very quaint. “Big Tent”

    You want to be under big tent? We have one.

  21. Liberal Elite says:

    @REV “We did it your way.”

    Thanks for the good laugh…

  22. RE Vanella says:

    Didn’t we?

  23. RE Vanella says:

    And you don’t need the @. We know who you’re speaking to.

  24. RE Vanella says:

    Now that’s funny.

  25. RE Vanella says:

    Kerri Harris
    Tizzy Lockman
    Laura Sturgeon

    Local progressive hatred of women. Unreal.

    (Also very funny)

  26. RE Vanella says:

    Cnythis Nixon
    Nina Turner
    Brianna Joy Gray
    Alison Hartson

    Leftist women haters…

  27. RE Vanella says:

    Leftist women also challenged Beto in TX and Manchin in WV.

    Although they didn’t prevail, the fought.

    I could do this all fucking night.

  28. RE Vanella says:

    Look up Julia Salazar for NY.

  29. RE Vanella says:

    Or… Speaking of NY…

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

  30. RE Vanella says:

    Now I’m laughing!

  31. RE Vanella says:

    I’m thinking of all these courageous leftist lionesses, ready to fight, under one big tent.

  32. Liberal Elite says:

    @REV “And you don’t need the @. We know who you’re speaking to.”

    …got it… Thanks.

  33. Liberal Elite says:

    @REV “I’m thinking of all these courageous leftist lionesses, ready to fight, under one big tent.”

    But you still don’t get it…

    But I do read the news. Here’s a good one for you:

  34. RE Vanella says:

    Kshama Sawant…

  35. RE Vanella says:

    See I understand the argument you’re making. I reject it unequivocally and without reservation.

  36. RE Vanella says:

    Wow! A NY Times link. Cool.

  37. RE Vanella says:

    I’m done with you now. It’s like beating an old stubborn mule.

  38. Liberal Elite says:

    @REV “See I understand the argument you’re making. I reject it unequivocally and without reservation.”

    Then you just haven’t thought very hard. Look at this story from today (just like almost any other day):

    There goes a whole bunch of women votes over to the DINOs… And why are the progressives even letting this happen? Why aren’t we also the champion of women?

    No.. You clowns mostly railed against her for flushing Al Franken out, and then just dug the hole a little deeper. And more and more votes drift away.

    And then you start with the “You’re a Wine Mom!” “She’s back” misfiring insults, and you don’t even see that you’re already losing. Do I need to ask some women to come post on this thread for you to see how you’ve been an idiot?

    @REV “…an old stubborn mule.”

    There’s an insult I can get behind. You sound just like my teenage daughters… !!Oh snap!! now you’re making me make female insults. I’m so sorry!!

  39. RE Vanella says:

    See, now it’s becoming clear. You like the beatings. I mean if you’re into that stuff, it’s cool. Should we have a safe word?

    I’d be happy if the guys in NCC treated the inland bays like a state wide resource and created protective legislation
