Obama's FCC set to regulate the internet

A federal appeals court ruled last month that the Federal Communications Commission lacks the authority to regulate the Internet. No worries, mate. This week the Obama Administration chose to "reclassify" the Internet so it can regulate the Web anyway. This crowd is nothing if not legally creative.

Julius Caesar of the Internet
This administration ignores a court ruling that it doesn't like and then changes the rules to allow them to do what they want. No word in the article about public hearings, which I thought were required by agencies that set regulations. They aren't supposed to make laws, right?

Arbitrary rules and regulations based on a "we can do as we please" attitude and you get something that we dare not say.

That word would be tyranny.
