This is Ted Stevens explaining how the Internet works and why accordingly we don't need net neutrality laws. It is such a gem, I don't know what block text to quote. Instead, here are a few choice quotes:
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?
We use this internet to communicate and we aren't using it for commercial purposes. We aren't earning anything by going on that internet.
Maybe there is a place for a commercial net but it's not using what consumers use every day.
[the Internet]'s not using the messaging service that is essential to small businesses, to our operation of families.
Now we have a separate Department of Defense internet now, did you know that?
No, I'm not finished. I want people to understand my position, I'm not going to take a lot of time.
