The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has already been twice unanimously rebuked by the D.C. Circuit Court in previous attempts to impose Network Neutrality.
Their response to these clear demonstrations of their lack of juice? President Barack Obama appointee FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler is considering [...]
Unanimous Supreme Court rulings are certainly noteworthy. When a case lines up every single Justice – appointed by Democrats and Republicans both – the decision must be unbelievably clear cut.
Nine-to-nothings don’t happen very often. The ever-overreaching Barack Obama Administration, however, is in historic fashion racking them [...]
The pernicious effect of government warping markets is absolute – and the evidence is obvious and everywhere.
When 300+ million Americans (and when 8+ billion worldwide are able to) make their own decisions, markets constantly morph to accommodate those decisions – and the maximum amount [...]
Eighty years ago. The depths of the Great Depression. Democrat President Franklin Delano Roosevelt blindly flailing around, throwing ever more government-centric “solutions” at the growing list of problems. Each new centrally-planned effort making matters worse – and the Depression last longer.
Remember, Ladies and Gentlemen, Hideki [...]
In the cinematic classic “The Princess Bride,” Inigo Montoya utters the now oft-repeated “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”
Uber-Left government-media outfit Free Press is highly practiced in this disingenuous art. Their name is [...]
The 2009 “Stimulus” bill contained $7.2 billion for local government broadband – the federal government giving city, county and municipal governments money to get into the Internet Service Provider (ISP) business.
Shocker – government broadband is a disaster. It already was, for [...]
No matter how many regulations exist – it’s never enough for the Left. Regs are their Jell-O – they think there’s always room for more.
New EPA Regs Issued Under Obama Are 38 Times as Long as Bible
Since President Barack Obama took [...]
So it turns out there that something doesn’t have to be true to be funny.
Many a thinking American – who knows media bias – finds the following perversely appropriate.
Young Get News From Comedy Central
Tom Brokaw, Peter Jennings, Dan Rather … and Jon Stewart?
We are free traders. We want maximum exchange – with minimum government interference.
Markets always work better the freer they are. Free from all but the barest necessity laws and regulations, and the least taxes possible – up to and including none at all….
We’ve seen it in too many sectors of the economy to possibly mention – both domestically and internationally. The greater the government involvement in an economic sector – the greater the ensuing economic damage. To that sector – and the broader economy.
Every additional upward ratchet [...]
The Veterans Administration (VA) has been a disaster since just about its inception. Because it is government-only monopoly single-payer health care. Championed by the exact same people dying to impose it on all the rest of us.
Then-Community Organizer Barack Obama:
“I happen to be [...]
The Media Marxist Left pushing the terrible Internet policy known as Network Neutrality oft are absurdly called “consumer groups.”
Major U.S. Consumer Groups Support (Federal Communications Commission) FCC Action on Net Neutrality
They want Net Neutrality because they want a single-payer government Web – they [...]
What at times is worse than the Jurassic Press not covering something? The Jurassic Press covering something.
The all-encompassing government-Internet-power-grab that is Network Neutrality rarely gets outside-the-Tech-World media attention. But Thursday the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted in Democrat Party-line fashion to begin its process of [...]
Allow me to (re)introduce you to the hardcore Leftists rabble rousing for a full-on government takeover of the World Wide Web.
Theirs is now an all-out push to have the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) “Reclassify” the Internet – so as to then impose the utterly unpopular [...]
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Democrat Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel yesterday made a very good point.
Rosenworcel: Delay Vote on Net Neutrality Rules
Democratic FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel has asked FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler to delay his planned May 15 vote on a draft of new network [...]
In the late, great Harold Ramis’ cinematic classic “Animal House,” perpetual Faber College student John Blutarsky succinctly summed up the Left’s approach to policy.
Over? Did you say ‘over?’ Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? [...]
This is at once obnoxious and pathetic.
Wheeler Tees Up Net Neutrality for May Meeting
FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said Wednesday that he would be circulating a draft of the FCC’s new network neutrality rules to the other commissioners Thursday (April 24).
This is their third [...]
We have before us – and the government – Comcast’s acquisition of Time Warner Cable.
Which the Leviathan and the Left view as an opportunity to outright blockade the free market. Or, barring that, unilaterally impose many, many a la carte regulations – that [...]
The federal government is yet again acquiescing to the ridiculous anti-free market demands of the Left. We the People will yet again be forced to pay dearly for the resulting damage.
We have looming before us a wireless spectrum crunch. Spectrum being the finite airwaves we [...]
It’s Tax Day in America. Which brings to mind one of the late, great Ronald Reagan’s many great lines:
“Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July, but the Democrats believe every day is April 15.”
And of course Reagan was right. Taxes damage [...]
Your average government – anywhere in the world – has more resources at its disposal than just about any private company on the planet.
So when a government sets its sites on making a private company’s life miserable – it almost always can. Because it can [...]
Network Neutrality is socialism for the Internet – it guarantees everyone equal amounts of nothing.
We’ll let college professor and avowed Marxist (please pardon the redundancy) Robert McChesney identify Net Neutrality’s objective:
“(T)he ultimate goal is to get rid of the media capitalists in the [...]
The West Wing was for several years a fabulous television show – about a Democrat White House. Yes, I know, I’m a conservative and I wasn’t supposed to like it. But great writing is great writing, and Aaron Sorkin can seriously write. (He doesn’t bat 1.000, but [...]
Crony Socialism is, in part, the government cutting special deals for certain companies – at the expense of other companies, and the free market.
It is particularly pathetic when companies publicly troll for this treatment. It’s almost as if they’ve given up on actually, you know, [...]
The United States and Japan are at the trade negotiation table – for the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
The 2005 Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement (TPSEP or P4) is a trade agreement among Brunei, Chile, New Zealand, and Singapore….
(T)he US joined the TPP in [...]
