Obamacare and Death Panels… we’re not laughing, libs.
Something Awful has been one of the flagship Internet humor websites for quite some time. Anybody familiar with memes would know that they’re responsible for All Your Base Are Belong to Us, Chuck Norris, lolcats, etc. It’d be fair to say that they’ve got their finger on the pulse of what the Internet finds funny – they’re way ahead of the curve. It’s not so | Read More »
“We are putting the National Broadband Plan into action.”
Obama Administration claims ownership and total control of the internet. FCC chairman Julius Genachowski: “The court decision earlier this week does not change our broadband policy goals, or the ultimate authority of the FCC to act to achieve those goals,” the FCC chairman said. “The court did not question the FCC’s goals; it merely invalidated one technical, legal mechanism for broadband policy.” http://news.theage.com.au/breaking-news-technology/fcc-presses-on-with-broadband-plan-despite-court-ruling-20100410-rz1o.html — — | Read More »

Taking Full Advantage of the New Digital Media
I have spent the last few years observing and enjoying the ever expanding use of the new digital media by the political right to insure that we have the opportunity to have our voices heard and views expressed. For decades now the vast majority of traditional media outlets seem to have had little use for honest reporting of the news but rather twist the events | Read More »
Mark Cuban posterizes Al Franken

Unhealthy For America…House Bill 1 Trillion And Climbing.
If you build your house on sand….President Obama is getting some of his karma back. His unmitigated arrogance and self-aggrandizement is going to come at a terrible price to the country…to him and those around him. But they can’t see that yet. Now we even see the First Lady politicizing breast cancer, to advance what is very probably going to be a health care bill | Read More »

ATR/CEI update on Internet access
The FCC is currently in the process of developing a National Broadband strategy. Being that this is under the Obama administration, this strategy is unlikely to be a sensible one. Early word suggests that the administration plans to take the Internet in this country and consolidate it into a single, centralized, government-run entity. ‘Competition’ will be allowed, but only under strict government controls and over | Read More »
Democratic Efforts to Criminalize Blogs — Why Does Republican Mark Kirk Approve?
I hope I have this story all wrong, I really do. But it seems that Representative Mark Kirk has signed onto an effort that could criminalize the free political speech of bloggers or anyone else that uses the Internet to communicate.

Meet Susan Crawford, the co-chair for the Federal Communications Commission transition team for Barack Obama, and special assistant to the President in the Obama Administration (she has a blog here). A former law professor at the University of Michigan–one presumes that she has either departed permanently, or is on leave–Professor Crawford has some interesting ideas concerning the Internet.

AP Looking to Stop Unauthorized Internet Usage?
When you visit a blog and read a report taking the Associated Press to task for its continuous leftward bias, are you reading “stolen” AP content, or are you reading legitimate news? Is criticism of AP’s work fair use? What is “fair use,” anyway? Could the AP sue critics? These questions might be on the AP’s radar if a recent report in The New York | Read More »
The Complete Story on the Internet Safety Act
We live in an age where online communication thrives. The Internet has created countless new opportunities for commerce and communication. With that progress, unfortunately, comes exploitation by some, including criminals looking to do harm.
