Net Neutrality

If M and H posted everyday, I just might keep a hard link at the top of each of my posts.

They are that good.

Margaret and Helen:

"Dick Cheney has had four heat attacks. He underwent four-vessel coronary artery bypass grafting in 1988, coronary artery stenting in November 1994, and urgent coronary balloon angioplasty in December 1994. He has been treated for popliteal artery aneurysms, deep-vein thrombosis, atrial fibrillation, and most recently back problems. I wonder what his out-of-pocket expenses were. I wonder if he even cares?

Universal Healthcare in the wealthiest country on earth should have been a no brainer. And speaking of a no brainer…"

'Cause one post just isn't enough.

Michele Bachmann’s wheel is still spinning, but the hamster is dead. � Margaret and Helen:

"Margaret, I know it has been a few years since we last made the trip across the pond, but I was wondering if anyone is still alive in Europe? I watched a little bit of Fox News this weekend and I’m afraid everyone in Europe might have died from lack of access to healthcare. What a shame. They had such delicious food and beautiful art."

Telecoms are coming out swinging on Net Neutrality. Our job is to keep the heat on our Congress people.

Net Cemetery | The New Republic:

"This kind of discrimination threatens one of the most distinctive features of the Internet: the fact that there is no easy way to discriminate among different kinds of content, just as the electrical grid doesn’t ask whether your TV set is made by Sony or Panasonic. But, in recent years, that distinctive feature has been threatened. We now live in a world where the technology for watching what people do with their data packets is sophisticated enough to give a company like Comcast the ability to decide which packets can be shuffled into slower or faster traffic lanes, depending on what its business model dictates. And, in addition to having the technical ability to discriminate, Internet providers now have the legal authority to do so. In the 2005 Brand X decision, the Supreme Court ruled that cable broadband providers were not a 'telecommunications service' but an 'information service,' and, therefore, were freer to keep competitors off the network."

Nothing to see here, folks.

Good Democrat. Good boy!

Rep. Skelton To Rep. Akin: "Stick It Up Your Ass":

"WASHINGTON — Show me some civility, Republicans cried Friday after a Missouri congressman speaking on the House floor was caught on microphone apparently cussing out a fellow Missourian.

Armed Services Committee Chairman Ike Skelton, D-Mo., had just finished addressing his Republican colleague Todd Akin Thursday.

Skelton then turned to the side and muttered 'stick it up your ass.'"

Violent encounter. Check. Regrettable sex. Check.

Study urges parents to give kids booze allowance | Raw Story:

"LONDON — Parents should give their teenage children a weekly alcohol allowance at home, to help them avoid falling into the country's notorious binge-drinking culture, a study recommended Friday.

It said banning teenagers from drinking alcohol risked pushing them to buy cheap booze on the street and get into more trouble.

Health authorities have long sought to promote a more 'continental' European attitude to drinking, as opposed to the heavy boozing which brings chaos to many town centres on weekend nights.

The result of the drinking culture was reflected in the new study's findings: some 30 percent of teenagers surveyed said they have experienced violence while drunk, and 12.5 percent reported having had sexual encounters they regretted."

A website for liars. Aren't there about a billion of these in existence?
