Net Neutrality The Fail

December 15, 2017

In 2015 the three FCC commissioners specifically selected by Obama stated that the Internet should be treated as a Utility, so the three sat down with the people from Google, FB, and Twitter and hammered out just how net neutrality would be applied and how it will work. Only problem was that it only affected companies that provided access to the internet such as verizon, comcast and AT&T as examples meaning they could not selectively slow down content. The Net Nuetrailty rules gave internet giant content providers the ability to decide what is considered free speech and what is deemed hate speech, the 2015 net nuetraility act was written with a huge influence by George Soros.

The past two years, I have seen content providers become the sole arbiters of what they deem is free speech and what is hate speech, my web blog was deemed hate speech because I freely give my opinions regardless who you are that will read my blogs, they are my opinions and nobody is forced to read them at all. FB enjoyed being the sole arbiter of free speech on their website, only problem was anyone who disagrees with FB’s political views is deemed a person with hate speech, their pages are blocked, suspended, and even canceled. YouTube is another content provider who extensively used net neutrality to block, defund and even cancel channels they deem not consistent with their political views, google is another content provider who did the same thing as FB, and YouTube.

The ruckus over ending net nuetrailty means that snowflakes and liberals can not silence those who disagree with their political views anymore, the way it was before 2015. What most liberals and snowflakes do not realize is that internet providers still slowed down you internet speed once you reached a certain level of data used, and it was perfectly legal to do so, because in the 2 year contracts people would agree to listed that the persons internet speed would be slowed down after using 10 gigs of data just as an example. Even telephone companies with non contract phones had the same detail as 2 year contracts. So in reality the only real thing about net nuetrailty was allowing left leaning corporations be the sole arbiters of what is deemed free speech and what they define as hate speech.

With the current FCC having three republican commissioners giving Obama’s net nuetrailty rules a total rebuke and handing oversight to the FTC, takes away the liberals and progressives the ability to control free speech. The internet has been around now for 28 years, prior to the net nuetrailty rules the internet ran perfectly without the governments heavy handed approach. When the internet took off in the 1990’s the Democratic Party wanted price controls over how much companies like AOL, compuserve, prodigy, and earthlink as examples could charge customers for internet access. My first year of having internet access my monthly charge was 70 a month for 100 hours of internet access each month. Today, I have a selection of tiers of internet speed and the prices reflect those speed levels. Either in January or February I will be getting gigabit internet access speed for 80 dollars a month, I am choosing the speed that best reflects my needs.

The internet has blossomed and exploded without any help or controls that the deomcratic Party feels is necessary, treating the internet as a utility gave the democrats the control over the internet they have so longed desired because it never discriminated who could access the internet, where as the democrats want to silience free speech unless you agree with their political views.

For 25 years the internet operated just fine without strict heavy handed government controls. For the past two years, the internet was under free speech attack if you disagreed with the content providers political views, such as disagreeing with abortion as just one example. Roe V Wade was a Supreme Court decision in the 1970’s but there was a demcocrat actually implying that without net neutrality a lady would not be able to look up where to get an abortion, surprise net nuetrailty boils down to who decides what is free speech and what they deem as hate speech.

Democrats and progressives literally hate the head FCC comissioner Ajit Pai, who with the other two FCC memebers wrote the rules repealing net nuetrailty and giving freedom back to the people who use the internet without fear of being labeled hate speech writer, homophobic, islamphobic as just a few examples. If you disagree with liberals, democrats and progressives, you are a unredeemable deplorable person.

Once again this blog is my opinion…….

The Forgotten Citizen

September 11, 2017

This is in deep gratitude to Sean Hannity and his talking about the forgotten man in this past election.

The Forgotten Citizen
I am the forgotten citizen, who out of total frustration helped elect Donald J Trump as President. The forgotten citizen rose up en-mass out of frustration with the elites trying to shove a candidate down our throat even if we did not want that person.

The forgotten citizen spoke with a resounding NO, to Hillary Clinton who felt that the presidency was her birthright. even with her breaking federal laws, lying and even cheating her way to the DNC presidential nomination because she would have lost being in an honest and fair electoral fight.

As the forgotten citizen we elect those who claims to serve each citizen of each state they were elected from be it the house or the senate. whats sad is they serve the huge donors who tell them how to think and vote on legislation as long as it benefits the donors and not the American citizens as it should be. far to long have we listened and watched politician after politician proclaim what they will do for the citizens they wish to represent.

Time after time these so called honest politicians go to Washington D.C. go and pass legislation that digs deeper into each hard working American citizen. the establish new programs and entitlements that are so suppose to be safety nets for the hard working American citizens but due to regulations and guidelines the majority of American citizens never qualify for the assistance by making to much. The elected democrats fall over themselves handing out these so called benefits for American citizens to Illegal Immigrants and if anyone opposes them, they immediately go on the attack calling anyone that disagrees racist and homophobes, misogynists, white supremacists, neo-nazis.

The forgotten American citizen lost his health insurance just so that 11 million illegals would be provided with free health care, that the American Citizens pay for with higher payroll taxes and other income taxes.

The forgotten American Citizen is getting tired of every single person being classified and sorted into groups so that a political party can tease and appease them for their own political benefit. The Forgotten American Citizen is tired of all of it. As the Forgotten American citizen we do not care if you are gay that is your issue not ours, we do not care if you are black, latino, or any other race. As The Forgotten Citizen we see everyone as an American Citizen first why tear this country apart as classified groups.

The Forgotten Citizen is going to help the President drain the swamp by electing those who wish to serve the citizens of this nations and the states they are elected from instead of serving the K Street donors. we have access to how each congressional house member voted, and how each senate member voted as well.

A warning to the house and senate, the Forgotten American Citizen is watching your every vote, you went to Washington D.C. to serve not get rich off the backs of hard working American Citizens. For far to long that is what has happened once they are elected not all but quite a few have become millionaires just selecting one house member will give proof, House member Maxine Waters her personal wealth was less than 35 grand, in 2016 close to 2 million dollars.

The Forgotten American Citizen will be watching how each house member and senate member votes to advance Trumps Agenda, next year the swamp in the house will be drained.

Signed this day, 09/11/2017
The Forgotten American Citizen….

Party Of Hate

September 2, 2017

The democrats have long been the party of hate, even at its inception as a free nation and not one founded on European ideals.

To call the democrats a party of compassion is an oxymoron to begin with, they have no compassion their only goal is to transform this nation into a European styled nation where the government controls your life from cradle to grave.

They do not seek to help minority groups achieve success but to enslave them into the never ending nightmare of government programs and regulations while exempting themselves from the very programs they create to establish a lower caste society to keep them in power politically.

The hate that democrats have of America is unbelievable, they will even break their oath to the constitution even after being sworn in to protect the constitution, country, state, and its citizens.

Former Senator Fullbright: signer of the southern manifesto, opposed public school integration, opposed the 1965 civil rights bill and several others while he was a senator.

Former Senator Byrd: Memeber of the KKK, grand dragon, helped filibuster the 1965 civil rights bill.

Al Gore Sr: opposed the civil rights bill, and even helped filibuster the bill on the senate floor.

Barry Goldwater: candidate for office of President, both Hillary and Bill both dreamed of Goldwater becoming president and overturning the civil rights act of 1965, and putting segregation back into prominence.

The SPLC: a Progressive liberal law firm that incites hate and encourages violence on any group or person that does not hold the same beliefs that the group believes in. They are funded by a well known person who hates America, and that is George Soros. They are also accepting funding from other questionable sources outside the country and refuse to provide the details.

The SPLC is beholden to foreign countries who despise this nation like the SPLC does. It’s not what they say but what they do and we should watch them

The democrats if they really were for the people then the A.C.A., repeal act would have passed because its hurting to many people monetary wise. The Medicaid expansion actually has the democrats drooling with anticipation because down the road when a person dies, that persons estate must repay Medicaid back first even if it takes everything from the cash to property.

Mr McCain

August 4, 2017

Mr. McCain, what you did on the floor in the senate amounts to nothing more than turning your back on the people who re-elected you on the basis that you would vote to repeal the A.C.A., when it was brought up onto the floor in the senate.

What exactly did the Democratic Party promise you in the form of quid pro quo to get you and Ms. Susan Collins and Ms. Lisa Murkowski to vote against the repeal bill. It is not your place to decide what type of insurance I or anyone else will buy in the form of health insurance.

In your rush to protest what President Trump said on the campaign trail was really beneath you as a former military member. You have utterly disgraced the military as a whole and the uniform you wear at times. You gave up your honor, integrity, and spit upon the oath that you gave as an enlisted man into the military. You have totally disgraced all the branches of the military and the men and women who served before you, served with you, and that are currently serving in the military. So what are you getting from the democrats for voting no….

Your no vote just inflicts more monetary pain upon the people who re-elected you. But what do you care, when we the taxpayers are subsidizing the health care premiums that you pay each month. Your tantrum disgraced the senate chambers, you sounded like a woman experiencing her first period.

The repeal was to put health insurance cost controls back where it needs to be in the hands of the consumers not the likes of you. As a single older male and just because of my age and the state that I currently live in, my monthly premium would be 978.00 a month with a 100.00 dollar deductible for both docotors visits and prescription copays.

I need basic health care and catastrophic health insurance, I do not need to pay additionally for children medical care, and or health care for a woman.

By your actions, I have to decide do I pay my mortgage or do I pay my health insurance premiums, because of your selfish actions which is a national embarassement.

You pretend that you are a republican but you vote with the democrats 80% of the time against your own party. Either grow the balls that you had as a pilot and stop campaigning on the fact that you were a POW. It’s time to honor the promises that you made to the people of Arizona to repeal the A.C.A. And get rid of Obama illegals actions.

Retire and let a true conservative take your seat in the senate since you have lost your honor, and integrity by selling out to the democrats.

Decoration Day or Memorial Day

May 27, 2017

On May 5th 1868, General John A. Logan declared that May 30th would be known as Decoration Day Nation wide, that date was chosen because it held no significance as an anniversary of any past battle in America.

This day is set aside for the men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice by giving their all, its also to honor those who are currently serving and for those who have served in the military for this nation willing and for those who were drafted as well.

We have places in this country who are attempting to whitewash history by removing monuments to soldiers and generals and important figures from the civil war. It is because of the civil war that we have Decoration Day/Memorial Day, the civil war was not fought over slavery but it eventually has been taught that is all it was about.

Prior to the start of the civil war, the federal government was taxing raw products and finished products that came from the southern states. The representatives in the house and in the senate told the federal government that if the excess taxation did not stop that they would leave the union and form their on nation. About that time the southern states were also looking at freeing all slaves and giving each male slave a 1/4 or 1/2 acre for each year they lived on a plantation.

In President Lincoln’s own words “we can not let the southern states leave for they fund the federal government” The federal government struck first by invading the southern states to prevent succession of the southern states.

President Lincoln issued the Emancepation Proclamation, on January 1st 1863, freeing all slaves, there was caveat to his speech, it only affected the slaves in the southern states while the civil war was going on. It wasn’t until 4 years later that the slaves in the northern states and southern states that was loyal to the union were freed.

Prior to the civil war as I had stated the southern states were looking into freeing the slaves the same at Russia had in 1859. Prior to Lincoln starting the war with a surprise attack on Charleston harbor on April 8th 1861, to occupy Fort Sumter which at that time was a federal tax collection fort. The southern states were starting the process of freeing the slaves. The occupation of Fort Sumter by the federal government military and navy altered that course of action by the southern states.

After the civil war had ended and congress initiated the process of reconstruction which in turn allowed for people from the northern states to move to the southern states became known as carpet baggers. It as during the era of reconstruction that majority of the representatives from the southern states were former slaves that were freed by Lincoln’s emancipation proclamation. The southern Democratic Party had created its response to the reconstruction time period which became known as the KKK party.

The klan was created as a response to the northern states using reconstruction era to have blacks in congress. The klan terroized and even killed blacks to get their point across. Up until the civil rights bill as passed by congress in the 1960’s, there was 7 other attempts to pass civil rights legislation by congress but the democrats in congress blocked them all.

It as the democrats that created the Jim Crow laws, the separate but equal education system, the whites only and blacks only laws. It was the democrats in power in the southern states that used the police, the police dogs, water cannons, and the states national guards against the civil rights marchers in the late 1950’s and the early 1960’s.

The civil rights bill that was voted on in the house in 1964 was filibustered by Al Gore Sr in the senate until another senator from Minnesota rewrote several sections that dealt with voting rights, the original version ould enshrine in the constitution the right to vote regardless color, religion, or gender, the rewritten version had it so that the senate had to revote on the voting rights act every so often, that is when enough democrats in the senate agreed to vote to pass the civil rights bill so the president could sign it into law.

What is now known as Memorial Day is because of the civil war, there were to many men killed during the civil war and to think we have people who have been elected feel it’s their right to remove monuments and to erase history because a few are offended by our nations past. To erase our past means that we as a nation are bound to repeat history. We need to embrace our past so that we do not repeat our past, but we are on the verge of repeating our past because a single political party prefers to keep groups of people as 2nd class citizens so that they will keep voting for them.

The civil war was not fought to keep a political party in power but to keep a young nation as a whole, every single soldier who has given their all in battle or in defense of this nation should be honored as well as those who are currently serving in the military and those who served and those who have retired from the military for they truly know what sacrifice truly means.

The song “If Your Reading This” best fits the term “giving it all”
It as first sung by Tim McGraw in 2007

If You’re Reading This
Tim McGraw
Lyrics
If you’re reading this
My Mommas sittin there
Looks like I only got a one way ticket over here
Sure wish I
Could give you one more kiss
And war was just a game we played when we were kids
I’m laying down my gun
I’m hanging up boots
I’m up here with God and we’re both watching over you
So lay me down
In that open field out on the edge of town
And know my soul
Is where my momma always prayed
That it would go
And if you’re reading this
I’m already home
If you’re reading this
Half way around the world
I won’t be there
To see the birth of our little girl
I hope she looks like you
I hope she fights like me
Stand up for the innocent and weak
I’m laying down my gun
I’m hanging up boots
Tell dad I don’t regret that I followed in his shoes
So lay me down
In that open field out on the edge of town
And know my soul
Is where my momma always prayed
That it would go
And if you’re reading this
I’m already home
If you’re reading this
There’s going to come a day
When you’ll move on
And find some one else
And that’s OK
Just remember this
I’m in a better place
Where soldiers live in peace
And angels sing amazing grace
So lay me down
In that open field out on the edge of town
And know my soul
Is where my momma always prayed
That it would go
And if you’re reading this
I’m already home

There is another song that I will post the lyrics to as well for the soldiers who are still living, that fits them.

It’s sung by Toby Keith the title is American Soldier

Lyrics
I’m just trying to be a father,
Raise a daughter and a son,
Be a lover to their mother,
Everything to everyone.
Up and at ’em bright and early,
I’m all business in my suit,
Yeah, I’m dressed up for success,
From my head down to my boots.
I don’t do it for money
There’s bills that I can’t pay.
I don’t do it for the glory,
I just do it anyway.
Providing for our future’s my responsibility,
Yeah I’m real good under pressure,
Being all that I can be.
And I can’t call in sick on Mondays
When the weekends been too strong,
I just work straight through the holidays,
And sometimes all night long.
You can bet that I stand ready
When the wolf growls at the door,
Hey, I’m solid, hey I’m steady,
Hey I’m true down to the core.
And I will always do my duty,
No matter what the price,
I’ve counted up the cost,
I know the sacrifice.
Oh, and I don’t want to die for you,
But if dyin’s asked of me,
I’ll bear that cross with honor,
‘Cause freedom don’t come free.
I’m an American soldier, an American,
Beside my brothers and my sisters
I will proudly take a stand,
When liberty’s in jeopardy
I will always do what’s right,
I’m out here on the front lines,
So you can sleep in peace tonight.
American soldier, I’m an American,
American soldier,
An American

I found the soldiers Creed and its a good one and i hope that I am not offending anyone by just changing one word in the creed for it is meant to honor all soldiers.

A Soldiers Creed

I am an American Soldier.
I am a member of the United States Military – a protector of the greatest nation on earth.
Because I am proud of the uniform I wear, I will always act in ways creditable to the military service and the nation it is sworn to guard.
I am proud of my own organization. I will do all I can to make it the finest Military.
I will be loyal to those under whom I serve. I will do my full part to carry out orders and instructions given to me or my unit.
As a soldier, I realize that I am a member of a time-honored profession—that I am doing my share to keep alive the principles of freedom for which my country stands.
No matter what the situation I am in, I will never do anything, for pleasure, profit, or personal safety, which will disgrace my uniform, my unit, or my country.
I will use every means I have, even beyond the line of duty, to restrain my comrades from actions disgraceful to themselves and to the uniform.
I am proud of my country and its flag.
I will try to make the people of this nation proud of the service I represent, for I am an American Soldier.

Thank you for taking the time to read my view on Decoration Day/Memorial Day,
A ordinary mans view.

Rights Versus Priveleges

May 21, 2017

I’ve decided to comment on everything that has been going on since the election back in November of 2016.

I find it funny that people who disagree with the election results now literally border on the edge of insanity. Never have I seen people go to the extreme that I have seen occur both in the print media and legacy tv news.

You have college students who never before participated in a presidential election and are literally emotionally upset that their candidate after listening to the media tell them 24/7 every day that their candidate will in in a landslide, it didn’t happen. They are taking to social media threatening to kill themselves if election results are not overturned in their favor.

Then you have both the print media and their owners and the legacy tv talking heads and the class of politicians who deem themselves to be our betters, bordering on treason with what they are doing as well.

Never before has an elected president been attacked and viciously harassed and interfered with in establishing his administration and setting his agenda as this president has been, did I vote for him no I didn’t, but I am accepting the election results.

What’s rights does a person have either private or public, are not priveleges but there are a few who see those rights as their privelegs.

Rights:
Freedom of speech: there are some limits on free speech.

Freedom to travel: you are only limited by your desire and imagination.

Freedom of association: because of the PC culture, you are attacked if you think differently than liberals and progressives.

Freedom to live where you want: this goes with freedom to travel, but there are those who feel its their right to enforce restrictions against those who disagree with them.

Freedom to drive: this is a freedom but the license to drive is a privilege only its not a right.

Back in 2015 the print media and the legacy tv news felt it was their right and privilege to literally destroy an announced candidate for president they disagreed with, so they pulled out all the stops that would have caved a pedigree GOP candidate for president or any other elected office.

They pulled out of storage a video of the candidate saying what he could do if he wanted to because he was a star, did he say he did those things, no he only spoke of an action not taken. Was it crude, yes it was but goes no where near Anthony Weiner did with a teenage girl.

Since Trump was sworn in as President there has been a constant 24/7 daily barrage by both the print media and the legacy tv news to try and take down President Trump, this a first that the 4th estate has been so open in its hatred of a President. But then again responsible journalism was tossed out during the 1990’s and its never been seen again.

What the media in general is now doing actually borders on treason with the constant printing and revealing confidential meetings between the president and the foreign dignitaries visiting the White House. This very same media in general gave both Obama and Hillary a complete pass on whatever they did legally or illegally.

The media in general has given up all pretense on being balanced in its delivering of the news, both the writers and the talking heads on tv show their utter disdain for President Trump in their words and actions. President Trump calls them fake news and it does fit the bill to a T. The news in general they give rarely is based on truth but their privately held beliefs.

Trump could if he wanted to due to the treason and espionage act, could shut down the tv broadcasters nationwide. Because they have leaked information that they shouldn’t have in the first place. They are working hand in hand with political appointees and elected democrats and rhinos in taking down a sitting president by any means even a coup.

It’s time for the average American citizen to understand that the Founding Fathers wanted a citizen congress and the president represent the nation as its sole leader. We have now what I call a political class that see them as being privileged and are better than the average citizen. They see themselves as being above the law, they see their constituents as being stupid animals that need to be told how to think.

The latest example is shoddy journalism is the recent firing of former FBI chief Comey, did President Trump stop any investigation no he hasn’t he is just replacing a man who helped Obama thwart any investigation into actions by Obama or Hillary.

The head of the FBI serves at the pleasure of the President, for the FBI is an administration agency, its not operated by congress or by the Supreme Court.

I watched actual tv for the first time since 2002, I lasted 30 minutes when I realized that, I have not missed out on anything at all. When I use to watch tv and the news, I became despondent on this nations future, just from watching the tv news.

By not watching the news or listening to the radio much, I have a better view and outloook for this nation. I have a right to my views and outlook but according to the talking heads and the printed media, my rights are archaic and I should be killed off because of them.

1945

November 11, 2016

During President Truman’s presidency he pushed for his own version of universal health care but the AMA called in socialized medicine it was quickly defeated. Congress in 1945 passed the McCarran-Ferguson Act, which gave the states the right to regulate the health insurance industry in their respective states.

That act allowed the states to establish pre-existing exclusion time lines, it also allowed the states to pick and choose what health insurance companies were allowed to sell health insurance within state boundaries. This act basically established winners and losers in the health insurance industry. Currently health insurance companies are prohibited from selling cross state lines, the walls were established in 1945. The democrats have been trying for single payer health care since President Truman, every act passed by congress when controlled by the Democratic Party has been focused on one goal aka single payer.

Our nation is to diverse and to big for single payer health insurance, because of the larger cities such as New York City and Los Angeles, would use a larger share of a single payer government controlled budget. Health insurance has always been a private industry product purchased by consumers, or the consumers opt to pay the doctors directly for a higher discount.

I experienced direct payments to doctors offices for a few years and noticed that I received a discount due to paying in cash where the doctors billing office had no paperwork to fill out for the insurance company. The McCarran-Ferguson act in effect established monopolies within each state.

The 1974 act and then the 1996 act in an inverse way helped insurance costs to skyrocket, its congress is why the cost of insurance has been going up by preventing the free market to decide the winners and losers or who merges with who. Its time to let the consumers to decide instead of trying to establish single payer, costs would decline if all 1500 insurance companies were allowed to compete in the free market.

Another way to dramatically reduce costs is to limit what lawyers can be paid in malpractice court cases. Costs vary for doctors and nurses depending on their specialty. For an OB/GYN the Premium could be as high as 110,000 a year or more depending on the state they practice in.

By congressional act all health insurance companies have to carry a reserve to pay for claims and malpractice cases. some insurance companies use the interest off the reserves to pay for other items.

I’m hoping that Trump and congress pass a simple bill allowing all health insurance companies to compete in all 50 states, instead currently each state allows only a few insurance companies to operate within state boundaries, which actually artificially raises costs of premiums and cost of health care with in each state.

This was all done on purpose to eventually allow the democrats to gt single payer for the country, Single Payer nearly became an actual reality had hillary been elected, because that would have been the logical step in order to save the ACA aka obamacare. Obamacare was an illegal law to begin with since it originated in the senate instead of the house.

Harry Reid stripped the original written bill that was in the (HR3962), the affordable healthcare act as it was originally written was stripped of its original bill and became the patient protection and affordable care act. This was an illegal bill because it was a spending bill and all spending bills must originate in the house.

Because Scott Walker had been elected to replace ted kennedy, the democratic party no longer had 60 votes to stop a filibuster, so they used a process called reconciliation that’s used for budget bills only. both of the steps are illegal under the Constitution.

It’s been an illegal law because obama has been illegally funding thru other agencies since congress has refused to fund it. Obama has directed the secretary of the Health and Human Services agency to take the premiums paid and redirect the payments to the health insurance companies so that they do not leave the markets.

The health insurance companies are leaving the markets in each state because the age group they were promised that would purchase insurance are opting to pay the penalty and pay cash directly to their doctors. The insurance companies are experiencing huge losses because the healthy people are opting to pay the no insurance penalty.

If congress passes the bill to allow all 1500 health insurance companies to compete nationwide, they will also allow people to chose cafeteria style health insurance rather than uniform plans that are preset. honestly being as old as I am why do I need to have OB/GYN coverage, or pediatric coverage.

If we get cafeteria style health care plans, I know exactly how mine would be:
major medical
prescription coverage
yearly preventive heath care doctors visits
mental health
dental
eye coverage.
my coverage for this would be 175 a month and 15 for copays

My current coverage is for:
29 items relating to health care for women from the age 13 to 99
34 items relating to health care for children
22 items relating to male health care
no major medical – was told it didn’t conform to the ACA
eye care coverage
prescription coverage
total cost is 980 a month for the premium
co-pays 30 for doctors visits and prescriptions

As I read more, I will re-edit this post……
