Tech at Night: Net Neutrality, Bitcoin, and the Courts
So I spent my Tech time tonight writing about Net Neutrality. I suggest reading that. It’s still a bad idea, because it’s founded on premises that aren’t true, and doesn’t address the real issues.
Meanwhile industry’s fighting it out over Net Neutrality 3.0: the return of the revenge. Who are Obama’s picked winners and losers, and are they winning or losing enough? Do they think they can bet more?
Speaking of picking winners and losers, we’ll have to see what comes out of Senate patent negotiations. Last time the Senate worked on this there was a good Republican bill and a bad Democrat bill.

A rising stock market does not lift Obama’s poll numbers
Every now and then, the media will scratch its head and wonder why President Obama’s poll numbers are so awful, when there’s good economic news he should be benefiting from. This almost invariably refers to the stock market, the lone bright spot of the long non-recovery we’ve been slogging through for the past five years. The latest befuddlement over Obama’s inability to benefit from market | Read More »
The Obama Administration’s War on Beer
As the craft beer craze rages across America, the Obama Administration looks on track to jack up the costs incurred by the industry by several million dollars. Right now across America, breweries often sell or give their spent grain to farms for cow feed. The spent grain is a byproduct of the brewery process. The grain gets recycled, the cows, get fed, and the world | Read More »
Tech at Night: Congratulations on your rape-tainted award nominations, Edward Snowden
Edward Snowden is in full propaganda mode for Vladimir Putin, basically becoming Putin’s puppet. I’m sure he’s enjoying his award nominations while his patron state terrorizes women.
Barack Obama showed weakness when he even floated the possibility that America would turn our control of ICANN over to other countries. Down in Brazil they’re all over that idea (the anarchists are claiming they want a non-governmental control, but look, in a world with Russia and China, and even the EU countries like Germany having ‘national champions’, that’s not happening). India’s game, too. Republicans, and heck it’d help if Democrats did it to, must signal that the next President will not let this happen.

Cantor Rebuffs Obama On Immigration Reform
Yesterday, Barack Obama tried to open negotiations with the House of Representatives on comprehensive immigration reform using the tried and true Obama formula for winning friends and influencing people: snide, insulting, and argumentative. Unfortunately, Republicans in the House of Representatives have repeatedly failed to take action, seemingly preferring the status quo of a broken immigration system over meaningful reform. Instead of advancing commonsense | Read More »
Pray for the President
St. Peter wrote, “Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.” (1 Peter 2:17) That Emperor would go on to execute Peter, Paul, and other Christians. St. Paul wrote, “I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified | Read More »
Obama’s CDC Promotes the Abortion of Black and Brown Children
When Barack Obama unveiled his Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative back in 2010, it looked fairly benign. According the HHS program description: A wide range of evidence-based programs are eligible for these funds. Grants are available to funding medically accurate and age appropriate programs that reduce teen pregnancy. Of the $100 million appropriated, $75 million must be used for programs that have been proven effective through | Read More »

Speaker Boehner’s Electile Dysfunction
For the first time in years, House Speaker John Boehner has a serious primary challenger. JD Winteregg is a self-described Tea Party candidate. The Speaker is worried enough to be running TV ads in the district, something he has seldom done in the past. Winteregg has an ad of his own, and it’s sure to raise a few, er, eyebrows. Why Boehner is worried Winteregg | Read More »
Why Does Senator Mark Udall [D-CO] Pay Women Less Than Men?
As the President’s popularity continues to erode and Congressional Democrats begin to see the electoral DOOM on the horizon, it isn’t a surprise that Senator Mark Udall supports the efforts of the President and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to change the focus of attention to equal pay for women.

Wile E. Obama and his bag of tricks and anvils…
One of the great things about children’s cartoons is how the characters can do the craziest things and somehow everyone walks away unscathed. How many times has Tweety Bird ended up in Sylvester’s mouth or under a clock only to end the episode smiling as Granny scolded Sylvester? How many times did Scooby Doo and Shaggy seem to be scared into heart attacks only to | Read More »
Empire of intentions
Back in 2012, when it become known he had donated $1000 in support of the Proposition 8 gay marriage ban in California four years previously, Mozilla co-founder Brendan Eich insisted that his opposition to the re-definition of marriage was not founded in animosity toward homosexuals: Ignoring the abusive comments, I’m left with charges that I hate and I’m a bigot, based solely on the donation. | Read More »
Mozilla and Obama: Great Topic for College Entrance Exams
This week, Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich resigned, succumbing to tremendous pressure following reports that Eich, back in 2008, had donated $1,000 to a California group advocating the position that marriage should be between a man and a woman. President Barack Obama, in that same 2008 election, apparently agreed with Eich’s 2008 position, saying: “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor | Read More »
