Senator Ted Stevens explains the internet to you!

Voting against Net Neutrality, Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), who was also opposed to cutting funds for a Bridge to Nowhere in order to help fund Hurricane Katrina Relief efforts, has decided in his undoubtedly ineffible wisdom explains the Internets to the ignorant masses

I just the other day got, an internet was sent by my staff at 10 o'clock in the morning on Friday and I just got it yesterday.

Why? Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the internet commercially...

The regulatory approach is wrong. Your approach is regulatory in the sense that it says "No one can charge anyone for massively invading this world of the internet". No, I'm not finished. I want people to understand my position, I'm not going to take a lot of time.
They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck.

It's a series of tubes.

And if you don't understand those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and its going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material...

Now I think these people are arguing whether they should be able to dump all that stuff on the internet ought to consider if they should develop a system themselves.

Maybe there is a place for a commercial net but it's not using what consumers use every day.

It's not using the messaging service that is essential to small businesses, to our operation of families.

The whole concept is that we should not go into this until someone shows that there is something that has been done that really is a viloation of net neutraility that hits you and me.

The internet is a series of tubes where porn pysically blocks the department of defense from fighting al Qaeda and keeps us from using the messaging services necessary to the operation of our families. That clears up so much sir, thank you.
