Mike Shedlock had an intriguing column this last weekend about Detroit (and other major cities) installing streetcar systems, at seriously high costs, while technology marches forward, toward, he suggests, to driverless automobiles which may be the rapid transit of the future.
Whether or not such […]
Washington, DC, is the capital of the United States. Yet Silicon Valley is the true capital of the America of the present and the future. Silicon Valley and its satellites gave us personal computers, web browsing, email, Amazon, eBay, PayPal, Facebook, Uber, Airbnb, iPhones, iPads, and other […]
The Barack Obama Administration’s Thursday Internet uber-power grab is awful for just about every American. It will lead to dramatically more expensive Web access – because of both raised service costs and huge new taxes.
And we will see a spiraling, regressive devolution of speed. It […]
You’ve heard the phrase “patent trolls,” yes? Certainly not a positive sounding term. I mean – trolls? How positive an image does that conjure?
The Media are almost always opposed to all things good. So when they with near unanimity help promulgate a term – you […]
President Barack Obama has a repetitive tic when it comes to his myriad power grabs.
The President knows if he is straightforward about his plans to government-ize every sector of the economy – said plans will be even less popular than they already are. (Hello, November […]
The Seattle Seahawks – in a moment of profound foolishness – forsook Beast Mode for Least Mode. And it cost them the Super Bowl. But they can take ever so slight solace – the Media has been in Least Mode for decades.
This has been on prominent […]
We wrote and recorded the following in December 2010 – the last time the Barack Obama Administration’s Federal Communications Commission (FCC) was on the verge of imposing really awful Network Neutrality policy.
Since, the D.C. Circuit Court has unanimously rejected said imposition – because the FCC lacks […]
The GOP recently gained some ground in the Washington State Legislature but those gains won’t last if some members keep siding against energy independence and consumer choice.
House Bill 1097 needlessly increases regulation for rooftop solar. A sure fire way to prevent industry from entering the […]
November’s election was an overwhelming, historic rebuke of what President Barack Obama and his Democrats are doing – and how they’re doing it.
But if you think the newly-minted major Republican majorities should serve as a roadblock to the Democrat agenda – well, that’s yet another thing […]
The American people in November overwhelmingly, historically rebuked President Barack Obama, his policies and his unilateral practices.
The President his own self primed the pump for the election as a referendum – on him.
Obama: My ‘Policies Are On the Ballot. Every Single One of Them.’
Perhaps the only thing government loves more than spending our money – is taking it.
The spending has long since passed absurdly astronomical levels. The Feds alone spend about $4 TRILLION a year. Governments in total are spending about 36% of our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) – […]
As we’ve often discussed, the Tech World Media is just as hopelessly Leftist and lost as the broader Jurassic Press.
They so often get it so very wrong – often because their absurd political perspective warps their alleged “reporting.”
Saturday gave us […]
One of the largest myths going is that government helps the Little Guy.
On its face this is patently absurd. More government – taxes and/or regulations – raises the costs of everything for everyone. The Big Guys are far better equipped to absorb the […]
Unless you only get your news via the Jurassic Press – or you are a government school victim who as a result doesn’t pay attention to anything at all – you are now intimately familiar with the on-camera stylings of Jonathan Gruber.
Gruber is a […]
Election 2014 was a gi-normous repudiation of the Democrat tax-and-spend, go-it-alone-government-knows-best model.
For everyone except Democrats.
(President Barack) Obama Pledges Immigration Executive Order By End Of Year
After Rout, Dems Plan Few Changes
Soon-to-be-ex-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is certainly a part of the Oblivious Caucus.
President Barack Obama this morning released a statement calling for his Administration’s Federal Communications Commission (FCC) – allegedly an independent agency – to execute a unilateral, complete rewrite of existing law.
He wants reclassification of how the Internet is regulated – so as to […]
Thank you very much to all who serve and have served. #VeteransDay
Yesterday we had this:
Internet Reclassification: President Obama Tosses Another Grenade After Second Election Shellacking
President Barack Obama this morning released a statement calling for his administration’s Federal […]
Obama appointed left-wing academic John Holdren as his senior advisor on science and technology issues in 2009. Holdren is a zealous proponent of sustainability measures and claims man is causing global warming. Holdren recently expressed an interest in implementing government regulations and mandates to coerce […]
I used to bet football games, and play occasional hands of cards (I’m mostly retired). I did so mostly online – via a company based in Costa Rica.
Did I know the owner of the Costa Rican company? No. Did I know anyone in […]
Government is an organism just like any other. Just like any other, its first priority is self-preservation. Its second is self-expansion.
Government expansion requires money. Government doesn’t earn any of its own – it must take ours. Hence – taxes. Since governments’ desire to grow […]
Uber.Com. AirBnB.Com. TaskRabbit.Com. What are these websites about, and why are they so controversial?
Let’s be clear: these websites, and others like them, are online hubs for what is best described as the emerging “freelance services industries.” The service providers you find through these websites are most […]
Conservatives and Libertarians inherently have little faith or trust in government. We know the institution is inherently flawed – and self-serving.
Government violates the Wallet Rule. Which is:
You go out on a Friday night with your wallet. You go out the […]
Jeff Bezos is a transcendent Internet entrepreneur. He understands the way the Web works in a way few others do. He sees around the curve of the Earth just a little further than do most of us.
To wit: Bezos started in 1994 Amazon.com.
(T)he world’s largest […]
We had some inordinately interesting recent Congressional testimony from David L. Hunt – the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)’s Inspector General (IG).
IG Hunt appeared on Wednesday, September 17 before the House Subcommittee on Communications and Technology. The topic? “Oversight of FCC Budget and Management.”
It is yet another Barack Obama Administration pledge now relegated to the ash heap of Mendacious History.
