Network neturality explained

Verizon Chief Executive Officer Ivan Seidenberg took the stage on the first morning of the Supercomm trade show Wednesday to blast network neutrality regulations currently proposed by the Federal Communications Commission.

“This is a mistake, pure and simple -- an analog idea in a digital universe,” Seidenberg said, arguing that rules preventing broadband providers from discriminating against certain content types or sources – which have been proposed by the FCC and supported by Internet-centric companies such as Google and Facebook – would choke innovation and clash with the FCC’s drive to promote broadband deployment investment.

“If we can’t differentiate between packets, we can’t prioritize emergency communications for first responders, telesurgery or heart-monitor readings for digital medicine or videoconferencing over spam for telecommuters,” he said

Would you have believed??

I have come to the conclusion that if our current state of affairs had been used as a plot for a novel or screen play in the mid 80's it would have been rejected as fantasy.

Ron Bloom approves of Mao beliefs

The following is from a transcript of the Glenn Beck program. The quote comes from a speech given by Ron Bloom, Obama's Manufacturing Czar.

BLOOM: Generally speaking we get the joke. We know that the free market is nonsense. We know that the whole point is to game the system, to beat the market, or at least find someone who will pay you a lot of money because they're convinced that there is a free lunch. We know this is largely about power, that it's an adults only, no limit game. We kind of agree with Mao that political power comes largely from the barrel of a gun. And we get it that if you want a friend, you should get a dog.


Beck has a video of the guy saying exactly that.

I don't know what to say. Obama has avoided the Senate and filled his Czar positions with who he wants and who he wants is communists and people who speak glowing of Mao.

You know, we can't get rid of Obama until 2010 but we can force these people out. Call, write and email your Representatives and Senators. It is the only way.

Just do it.
