Net Neutrality Holds

I have to say that I'm exceedingly satisfied to share this bit of news. The FCC voted to uphold net neutrality by declaring the internet to be a public utility under Title II of the Communications Act. This means that the companies that tried to kill net neutrality like +Comcast+AT&T+Verizon FiOS, etc., will now have to keep all internet traffic flowing at equal bandwith, not more, not less.

Maintaining net neutrality is the base of upholding free speech rights online, and always keep that in mind as the big boys mentioned above try to throw their weight around and looking to profit over allowing those rights.

The Need For Getting Free

We all have times where we feel exceedingly trapped and no means to free ourselves. That's how I'm feeling right now, like I'm stuck drowning in a pool of muck.

I'm not going to point fingers and start blaming others, and I will say that because of many of my own actions are contributing to it. Maybe I'm holding myself too accountable too often for events outside my control.

Trans-Pacific Partnership: The Case Against It

The more we hear about the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the more we realize how bad of a deal it is for everyone outside of big business. I've seen enough posts on +Facebook to understand why.

First of all, I see too many red flags just on the basis of the 1st Amendment, particularly regarding free speech. Who's to say that we could have laws of another country imposed upon on us, or that corporations here in America will start censoring out what they don't want us to see (particularly of voices critical of their activities)? This is true in regards to net neutrality.

Another red flag I see has to do with environmental laws, specifically that they could end up weakened to make room for more of a dominant voice from big oil/big energy, such as +Koch Industries. They'll be fighting for the unrestrained ability to make our air, food and water dirty and toxic, and make a profit off of it as well. Uh...how batshit are they? Batshit enough to be this psychopathic and antipathic to the rest of us who dare to blast them for making us breathe and ingest their noxious chemicals? I'd say a big, fat yeah! However, this is just the tip of the iceberg, we're talking about here. Let me put it a different way, how much would the Charles and David Koch care if your kid were to develop either asthma, emphyzima, bronchitis, or COPD from breathing in their chemicals? How about cancer, specifically lung cancer? Answer: None! They'd be very happy and sleep very easily knowing your kid is sick, as clean air is a privilege to them.

Republicans And Netanyahu, A Real Mixture

I'm not sure how to start this, other than to say that the +GOP has really outdone itself in undermining the President, again. Only this time, it's in the most unconstitutional way possible; as in encroaching upon the sphere of foreign policy, which is the President's prerogative. Basically +John Boehner, by inviting +Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before Congress without letting +Barack Obama know, is a complete lack of comprehension towards the principle of separation of powers. Essentially, Boehner's action was completely unconstitutional as it's the President, not Congress that sets our nation's foreign policy, and besides being an utter lack of respect, it's also a severe breach of international protocol on the part of Netanyahu who needed to first get clearance via Obama. Because Obama did not approve of this, there's no reason for the invitation.

As for Netanyahu, this is little more than a campaign stunt for the upcoming Israeli elections in March. There's better ways to go about campaigning and for Netanyahu to do this, given that he tried to swing the Presidential Election to +Mitt Romney in 2012, he's really got no credibility doing this. And his message of Obama making Israel and the region less safe by talking to Iran is complete bulls**t if you ask me. It's the same tired line from the Neocons, as a way of getting their d**ks hardened watching our nation go to war somewhere in the world.

But here's the real kicker in all of this, the Republicans in Congress have gotten themselves in such a corner, there's no way they'll be able to get themselves out. How? +Fox News isn't even backing up their sorry asses. Without Fox, the Republicans are defenseless.

State Of The Union 6 Years In

While it's true that +Barack Obama is not up for re-election in 2016, it should be noted that he's done quite a lot, more than he's been given credit for over the past 6 years. All in spite of the Republicans trying to block him every step of the way. Take for instance the economy, it's been growing at its fastest rate since 2008.

Selma Movie

After watching the film, +Selma Movie, with my lady yesterday, it got me thinking hard about the real lessons we ought to take out of Martin Luther King's head-on effort to kill one of the worst chokeholds that remained of Jim Crow in the South, the blocking of the Black vote and Black registration to do so. One of those lessons is that we shouldn't be ignorant of the fact that there are still forces in this country seeking to keep White hegemony intact and doing so by intruding upon one of our most basic rights, the right to vote. Don't underestimate this movement's power and strength because the movement for White supremacist hegemony is one with a history of violent resistance to racial equality.

I want to point out something about what the Dixicans (Dixie [Southern] Republicans) are doing to the vote. By making registration nearly impossible for Black voters in Southern states, like Mississippi and Alabama, the Republicans are attempting to enforce the same code of racial hierarchy as there had been from 1877-1964 put in place by the Dixicrats (Dixie [Southern] Democrats). I need to stress that not all former Southern Democrats were committed racists and/or segregationists, just like not all Southern Republicans are that way either. But many are, and the ones that are about racial superiority and/or separateness are the people we need to keep an eye out for. As I've said in earlier posts, these people would like to take us back to at least the Antebellum.

What To Watch For From Republicans

While I'm 100% aware of what many media outlets on the left are saying about 2016, I'm finding it exceedingly ironic that they're parroting the same lines that I've been spewing at times over the past 4 years. It's important to keep our eyes open to the reality that the Republicans will rig the vote in 2016 to capture the Presidency (2000 & 2004 should sound familiar).
