Meet the Department of the Internet! We'll be handling the Internet you love, but at the speed of government.

On one level, I’m posting these videos purely for the enjoyment of Doug and others who think the government exists to screw things up.
Well, I’ve never really gotten into this net neutrality debate because a) honestly, I’ve never read enough about it to confidently say I fully understand it, and b) I can’t tell from what little I know which side is right, so I don’t really have a position on it.
But wow — these heavy-handed “government is stupid and malicious” videos are telling me maybe I’d better get hip to this issue. These videos are entertaining, until you realize they’re not really kidding. These folks want you to think that net neutrality is a menace.
That makes me think maybe the other side has a point, and that maybe somebody needs to stand up for it.
But I still don’t know enough to say for sure…
