A Changing of the Guard

 

When even NBC and the Wall Street Journal are calling out Hillary Clinton for her lies, you know something in the world is changing. If it were the senseless robots on The View or MSNBC I’d be waiting to see pigs fly, but I’m still surprised.

But I shouldn’t be, and neither should you.

If you have any short-term memory left, perhaps you remember the craziness that was the 2012 doomsday or Mayan calendar countdown-to-extinction madness. While the masses and media were bringing “experts” on their programs and social media was full of millions of theories and explanations of why the world was coming to the end, there was a relatively silent minority who knew that real change was …

As I’m such a vocal critic of any egregious governmental overreach, I’ve been asked this quite a few times over the past few days and would like to use this opportunity to explain what the net neutrality deal is in a nutshell, and why people like me are wholeheartedly opposed to it in any form.

Perhaps the most fundamentally important takeaway is that we just ceded control of the one thing on the planet which has the most potential for growth and new technology (the internet) to the most inefficient organization known to man…The US government.

Also, remember how outraged Americans were when they realized the absolute scope …
