  2. President Obama Just Advocated the Best Net Neutrality Solution, So Get on It, FCC

    Or: How the President Saved Christmas the Internet.

    As President Obama has pointed out, this one is entirely on your shoulders, FCC. We don't want another set of half-assed rules that can just get struck down in court.
