Closed Internet

…No one — whether government or corporate — should control free open access to the Internet,” says FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler.

It is a blatant lie however. The last time I checked the Federal Communications Commission was an independent agency of the United States government. Furthermore the FCC exists to regulate communications by radio, television, wire, satellite, and cable. Now however you can add the internet. Just so we are on the same page, regulate means:

vt reg·u·late\ˈreg-yə-ˌlāt\
reg·u·lat·edreg·u·lat·ing
1
:  to control or direct according to rule or law <regulate the testing of experimental drugs>
2
:  to fix or adjust the time, amount, degree, or rate of
reg·u·la·to·ry\-lə-ˌtōr-ē, –ˌtr-\adjective
So there, no one except the US government or rather the FCC should be able to control the internet–that is wrong. It is doublespeak.
Any edict, which is what this is anyways, coming from the FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler should be looked as suspect. The man is a former lobbyist for telecom companies–cable and wireless. He is also a major campaign contributor to Barack Obama giving $38,500 from 2008-2011. It is already been stated that the only reason that this is taking place is because, “Obama told us to do so.”
So let us get this straight:
  • The FCC will control (regulate) the internet.
  • No one from the public or Congress was allowed to read the regulations.
  • FCC did this because Barack Obama told them to do it.
  • FCC Chairman, Tom Wheeler, a former telecom lobbyist, Obama contributor enacted this.

This is supposed to be great? I think this may force people to get licenses to operate websites, tax per website, megabyte, or gigabyte–maybe all these.

Closed internet–lest you are taxed and pay the tax.

Radiation…it’s here.

I think people are downplaying radiation popping up around the USA and other parts of the world. – dmotion, 27 March 2011

The time for downplaying is over. This is a disaster getting worse. There is snow in Missouri with double the radiation and in San Francisco a beach with five times the normal radiation.

You have Japan sending in homeless people on basically what I consider a suicide mission to ‘clean up’ the spill. Not to mention steam rising from reactor 3 and its origin yet unknown.

There is no sense of alert or urgency in the international community or outrage for the obvious misleading of the radiation levels.

Then there’s the crew of USS Ronald Reagan which

…sailed straight into a plume of radioactivity, which entered the ship’s water supply. Crew members washed, brushed their teeth and drank potentially contaminated water. […] active duty and former sailors are suffering from cancer, blindness, impotence, and fatigue as a result of the radiation exposure.

At what point is the international community going to wake up and see that this disaster is trying to be swept underneath the rug?

You also have certain inauspicious movements by The Department of Health and Human Services in the US ordering 14 million doses of potassium iodide to be delivered in the beginning of February 2014.

All of these things are a harbinger–of a horrible situation that can be that much less horrible if dealt with now and not when all there is to do is hope.

Music Industry Wants $75 Trillion

This just proved once again that I was right four years ago.

The music industry is insane. No one should listen to them.

They want anywhere in the range of $400 billion to $75 trillion

But Washington, D.C. has. So has Barack Obama–especially him.

His Copyright Czar  (oh, so illegal I may add) running around along with Homeland Security and ICE shutting down and seizing domains left and right.

Even explaining  why Google hasn’t been seized.

All in the name of copyright. All because of the MPAA and RIAA.

Madonn.

The Pirate Bay

From one day to the next it goes from being aganist the grain to mainstream…

Oh, PirateBay that I used to know where art thou?


The Eye—of Vladimir Putin?

What kind of question is that? Why would you ask a question of that sort?

“What do you see when you look in the eyes of Russian President Vladimir Putin?”

…and if you answer it what does that say of you? Does it say anything?

Why are we even looking into Putin’s eyes in the first place and why does it matter?

I had to go back and actually pause it and take a snap of the frame.

It’s only up on the video for a short time.

Man Arrested For Using Free Wi-Fi in the Car

What?

I’ve done this a couple of times before and I’m sure other people have before–I mean come on…

Going to be prosecuted and was arrested for using a coffee place’s free Wi-Fi from the car without buying anything?

Seriously this is crazy–that’s why it’s called free–well, I guess ‘free’ doesn’t mean free anymore.

How many times have people gone to a place with free Wi-Fi and not bought anything? What difference does it make if it was from the car?

See this is the problem with technology and people who don’t understand it. These would be the same people who say downloading stuff off the internet is ‘stealing’ yeah lol.

Bruno Out and About

Oh what joy–Sacha Baron Cohen is back in character as Bruno shooting for the movie.

As I Watch Stuff! writes though, “….there’s no excuse not to know all of the Ali G characters by now – don’t you people get HBO?”

and even if you don’t get HBO there’s the DVDs and YouTube, seriously have these people been hiding under a rock?

Well, here’s to Cohen and his endeavour–heh wordpress’ spell check is saying I misspelled endeavour lol 😛
