What about filling my car up with gas? Is something going to happen? No. No. No. And I don’t know. There is nothing wrong with being prepared. But there is a lot wrong with worrying | Read More »
Tech at Night: This DC establishment leader talks tough on ‘fast lanes’ but keeps on using them herself
Right now there’s a huge astroturf campaign going on, spamblasting fake messages to the FCC, pretending that there’s this giant grassroots army of opposition to the idea that people or businesses should be able to pay ISPs for faster service.

The Blue States’ Economic Paradox
Blue states have a problem. Although there are some recently notable exceptions, most vehemently oppose cutting taxes, favoring instead a tax-and-spend or top-down redistribution approach.
