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.

Pepsi And The NFL

December 30, 2016

Pepsi is sponsoring a contest “Win An Unreal NFL Experience”, why would I even consider registering to take part in the contest since its being wrecked by individual players and the NFL think tank thinking to keep the female viewer they need to soften the sport to appeal to the women.

Colin Kapernick, and his idiotic stunt of kneeling during the playing of the national anthem is ludicrous since he grew up literally middle class. Had Collin taken the time to know what he was protesting, he would not have done what he did, but like most pampered sports atheletes they only see the media coverage as the end result, thinking it will make them a house hold name.

The reason that i literally gave up watching pro sports in general happened in 2011 when Sam Hurd was arrested for starting a drug distribution ring, then part of his plea agreement he rolled over on his suppliers and his dealers to get a better deal, he was sentenced to 15 years.

Sam Hurd had bragged about how his college coach had taught him how to set up a drug distribution ring. It was then that I had decided to just give up watching or following any sports teams because the individual players are not in it for the team but just personal self glory over the good of the team.

Now the sports season are just temporary nuisances that are reduced to just a fly flying around my head. I watch netflix, vudu, hulu, amazon, and a very few actual tv shows. Will I try and watch the super bowl, yes but only for the new tv ads being shown.

The NFL rules changes are really stupid, even to watch its painful. To keep it interesting the NFL, the uses its media consulting group to create an image of alleged chaos. I use too listen to the ESPN radio talking heads, i stopped because they have become political and P.C., listening to them has become very painful and i even cancelled my ESPN account because of what they have become. I do not need talking heads to tell me how to think or that my views of situations are either right or wrong.

I saw in the news that ESPN is losing millions of fans and people who pay to have the ESPN premium package all year round. Disney has ruined espn and are on the verge of wrecking the NFL.

As a former fan of pro sports, I want to watch and enjoy the game not get lectured for my incorrect views. I will continue to avoid sports in general because of this stupid desire by the feel good elites to make pro sports into games based on rules little kids play by.

Gun Control

June 23, 2016

I say give them the gun control, but they first must agree to totally enforce all current immigration laws regardless and approve of voter ID cards in all 50 states before gun control is voted on.  I say vote on enforcement of all current legal immigration laws that are on the books and put voter ID into the constitution permantly and stipulate that to get a voter ID card in your state the person must provide a legal drivers license, social security number(to be verified as being a legal social security number based on instant verification) and or a current and valid passport and legal birth certificate, and agree to the voter ID card will have the persons face and right thumb print on the card along with current address.

Then after the voter ID law has been in effect for 6 months and they agree never to challenge the voter ID and never bring up immigration reform again they get tighter gun control laws as long as another mass shooting that is done by another person based on religion then the gun controls go back to the previous levels before their gun controls.

It’s a valid and sane approach to all three issues, they get what they want and the country gets what it needs to be enforced.

Voter ID placed in the constitution with the requirement of the following on the voter ID card: this card is for voting only not a valid ID, a face picture and your right thumb print, and your current address.  The states provide voter ID cards at no cost to the citizens of each state as long as they have a valid drivers license, valid passport and valid security number based on instant check and or a valid birth certificate. Needing 3 of the 4 would be perfect.

Tie gun control to enforcing the current immigration laws on the books and get rid of the notion of anchor babies and tie gun control to voter ID

Memorial Day

May 30, 2016

Memorial Day what does it mean to you, to me it means making a decision to put your private life on hold while you willingly enlist to be part of the military to defend this nation and not being forced into that decision.

There is another part of Memorial Day that the living celebrate in honor of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for this nation. We also honors those that are currently serving in our nations military world wide.

“I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”

The above oath takes the following takes courage, determination, faith, will and perseverance to keep.  We are not a perfect nation, we are still trying to find our way in this world at one time we had leaders who believed in constitution and the founding of this nation.  We currently have a leader who has no respect for the nation, the constitution or the military but only sees them as a hindrance to his goals.

Out of 320 million U.S. Citizens there are just over 1.4 million citizens enlisted into all 4 branches of the military less than 5% of American citizens are currently active military personnel. I have searched long and hard to find the exact number of Americans that have died while serving active duty and die after retiring from the military, the closest number that I can come to is roughly 58 million soldiers have died since the founding of America as a nation,  while active duty and or have passed away after retiring from the military.

There are many things are said to makeup what a soldier is, me personally I feel it’s the following but it can be any combinations but this is what I see:

integrity, pride, personal convictions, honor, will, sense of duty, faith these are just some that are what goes into the making of a soldier.

Today is the day to honor those who have made the greatest sacrifice while active duty and those who passed away after serving this nation with honor.  Memorial Day is about freedom and what we do with it after being given the gift of freedom by those who willingly gave their lives to protect this nation.  We should remember our past and all the soldiers who have served and are currently serving by deciding what we do now for the future of America.
