They have an eye for the obvious

I love this level of commentary on the court ruling against the FCC having the authority to create "net neutrality" laws - from PC World:

Some net neutrality advocates said the ruling raises broad questions about the FCC's authority to take any actions not spelled out in law.

Call me crazy, but I thought that's how regulatory agencies were supposed to operate - within the confines of the law. If not, why should we even bother having elections?

Don't forget that the FCC created the situation by deciding that high speed providers were not subject to common carrier requirements--in violation of the 1934 Communications Act. That's where they went off the rails.

It helps when you're familiar with the history of the issue.
