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…….

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.

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……

Freedom of Speech

June 3, 2016

Free speech is under attack again by the party of slavery and illegal immigration, as long as the majority stays silent and toes the line on political correctness and never doubt the veracity of what they say, they will not send in goons to beat up people attending conservative rallies. Since the presidential race to see who will be the standard bearer of each political party, the goons have been sent out to those who hold rallies and speak the words that scare them to their core and that is enforcement of our Countries laws.

The failure to enforce our laws started in the mid 1980’s when the democrats banded together and refused to pass the budget bills for the federal agencies specifically the agency over seeing the border patrol. They took to the airwaves with the complicity of the media, spewing misinformation on the illegals then, about how they were doing the jobs americans wouldn’t do. It was to be just a one time deal that was struck with then president Ronald Reagan, what a shock it was to see them beating the drums on overhauling the immigration laws under George W. Bush in his last two years of his 2nd term.

Then when Obama was elected and people who saw America the same way he did were placed into positions within the department of homeland security and the border patrol started the downward slide of our nations immigrations lasws. Border patrol agents have been fired for speaking out against obams’s policies on illegal immigrants, budgets have been cut or sliced for border patrol posts along the Mexican border so that it severely hinders the border patrol from doing the job of stopping illegals and even drug smuggling.

The American silent majority were not impressed with the GOP approved list of candidates, so two outsiders entered into the GOP party as well, Ben Carson and Donald Trump. True conservatives started to attend their political rallies and neither candidate were going to be P.C., which I just staying on the sidelines thought it was funny as hell watching the democrats and the left wing media tv stations were in histrionics by saying that amongst the illegals were drug runners, murderes and rapists and child rapists. The left wing media talking head shows and the newspapers went on the immediate offense talking about how they should be referred to as undocumented because illegals is such a demeaning name.

The call went out from the Democratic Party for the SEIU goons to harass and attack any citizen attending either of Ben Carson and or Donald Trumps campaigns. The GOP elites of the party tried their best to get the approved politicians to be the ones that republicans would favor and either Ben or Donald would go to the wayside, but what happened was the silent majority woke up and said enough to an approved list of candidates. The silent majority wants a candidate that will attack the democrats candidate based on their political views regardless if they are a female, or male based on ethnicty,religion, sexual preference, or even sexual identity.

Far to long have the silent majority put up with spineless candidates unless they are attacking a rival within the party. Two prime examples of spineless candidates were McCain of Arizona and Romney of Massachusetts were extremely spineless. McCain was the standard bearer because he felt he was entitled to it after being a senator for so many years, and relying on the fact he was a captured air force pilot twisting it into him being a hero. McCain was spineless, because he refused to go after Obama and his political views, I believe McCain was suffering what the media called white guilt. Romney was selected because he wouldn’t offend Obama either by calling Obama out on his political views for fear of being called racist.

Calling a politician out on his or her political views is not racist, it’s politics. Hillary was begain her coronation even before the campaign season began because she was entitled to it for being married to Bill Clinton and her being a woman. Since the approved list of GOP candidates are no longer in the picture and Trump is the last man standing and being able to garner support of the silent majority and not being P.C., which majority of Americans are happy about and is also attacking the media and not being apologetic, the way the media wants our candidates. Is he a true conservative no.

The silent majority is tired of P.C. presidential candidates going up against the Democratic Party chosen, they want a candidate who will attack their politics and their hatred of the constitution and our nation and our laws. What I fear is the democrats hatred of america the start of violent civil unrest by the Democratic Party because it is not beneath them and they have have history of beating people up even those in wheelchairs, and trying to deny the rights of the military personnel serving overseas from voting.

I wrote this after reading about the goons and the illegal goons bought and paid for by the DNC and George Soros to intimidate those who went to Donald Trumps rally in California on 06/02/2016, just for attending people were beaten by mobs paid for by the DNC and George Soros. There will be more goons at the Trump rally in Redding CA, it’s time for the rolling thunder group to help the police protect citizens doing nothing wrong other than exercising their rights of freedom of association and freeDom of speech which the democrats wish to abolish.

I am a constitional conservative, kicked out of both the democratic party and the GOP…..

Renewable Energy

May 30, 2016

i keep hearing the drum beat of renewable energy and that we must all switch over to save the planet.  I’ve looked into it and discovered it’s more of a scam brought on by a science fiction fantasy film by al gore and all his claims have been refuted since the film was released in 2006.

First off carbon dioxide is not a harmful or poisonous gas but a colorless gas that is very beneficial to humans because we give off carbon dioxide and the plants take it in and return it to us as oxygen.  Here is a link, these are predictions made in 1970 and as you can see they were wrong then and they are wrong today. Here is climate change, link to prove al gores assertions are wrong once again.

Wind generated electricity costs the American tax payers in the range of 11 billion dollars in today’s costs, that is what the companies get in straight up federal tax dollars upfront just for having built the wind generating farms they collect 42% of all energy subsides but only generate 2% of the electricity Americans use.

Coal receives 10% of the energy subsidies but generates 45% of the energy we use, wind solar farms must have a backup power plant either gas or coal to provide energy on the days that the wind does not provide for energy generation.

Here is a little known fact about light bulbs:

incandescent light bulbs and CFL bulbs the actual cost difference is a 1/16th of a penny over a month and majority of consumers do not know that in order to effectively get the most out of CFL bulbs is once you turn them on you must leave them on for another 15 minutes before you turn the light off.

The CFL bulbs last about 6 months because consumers do not read the fine print on how to use them or the steps you must take if one breaks and in bold letters the first step states no vacuum cleaner at all, because it will spread the mercury in the CFL bulb thru out the persons house.

the best type of bulb to get is the L.E.D. Bulb because over the course of a year each bulb average cost ranges from .046 cents to 1.56 depending on the wattage you select. People who think they are saving the planet do not realize they are paying for the electricity 3 times before they actually you the renewable generated electricity. The companies the build the wind farms get paid a direct federal subsidy for building them, then they get another federal subsidy for generating the wind electricity for transmission to people’s homes and then the consumer pays again by paying the electric bill each month.  People who pay for wind generated power they actually are paying 3 to 4 times more than someone who has electricity generated from natural gas or coal.
