Merry Christmas from the New Orleans Assassin…

Hello again. Yes, I still kill people for a living. But this doesn’t mean I can’t be imbued with the holiday spirit, I am…in my own way. Just yesterday I was standing at the corner of Mandeville and St. Claude Ave when I noticed an SUV going much faster than it should have, so I took out the driver side rear tire with one well … Continue reading Merry Christmas from the New Orleans Assassin…

Obama’s FCC Sells Out Internet Freedom and Calls it Net-Neutrality

Obama, just like he campaigned on a promise to end Bush’s tax cuts for the wealthy, also promised America net-neutrality. Today, the FCC and Julius Genachowski will hold a vote on their FCC’s proposed “Net Neutrality” rules and it is expected to pass. When it does, Obama will more than likely claim that he has protected the internet for everyone and fulfilled his campaign promise. … Continue reading Obama’s FCC Sells Out Internet Freedom and Calls it Net-Neutrality

The Head, It Spins…

In a quick perusal of the news this morning…and yesterday for that matter, I felt like a boxer taking punch after punch…and I gotta say it, I’m aggravated and disappointed, yet at the same time, more comfortable and secure in the correctness of my views that the government doesn’t care about anything but corporations and what they believe they can get away with, the problem with wilileaks … Continue reading The Head, It Spins…

Rep. Waxman Turns Back on Net-Neutrality, Consumer’s Internet Freedoms

Spine to spare? Please donate to the FCC, act now!

Two days ago, Verizon and Google went public with their vision of the “free and open” internet, but as people are quickly learning, free and open is the last way to describe their ideas. They propose zero net-neutrality on wireless networks – what many people understand to be the future of the internet – and a standard for “non-discrimination” so empty discrimination will most certainly occur. Their … Continue reading Spine to spare? Please donate to the FCC, act now!

Dear Google, so you announced your deal…you lying, net-neutrality killing, betraying son of a bitch

Oh Google, methinks you doth protest too much. When insiders leaked information regarding your proposed deal last week, the internet went crazy, myself included; we believed that Google and Verizon were joining forces in a deal that would destroy net-neutrality and in turn, destroy the internet as we know it. As the backlash grew, the CEO’s of Verizon and Google quickly issued statements saying they … Continue reading Dear Google, so you announced your deal…you lying, net-neutrality killing, betraying son of a bitch

FCC Net-Neutrality Meetings Crash to a Halt…Good.

Imagine a group of paid lobbyists behind closed doors engaged in secret negotiations regarding the internet, your internet. Sure, you may not own it, more than likely you haven’t personally purchased any of the wires or organized any of the companies that have created the structure and framework that allows the internet to function, speeding information to your computer, but it is your internet. It … Continue reading FCC Net-Neutrality Meetings Crash to a Halt…Good.

Dear Google, you net-neutrality killing, betraying son of a bitch…

The internet as we know it will begin a slow death on Monday, as this is the day that Google is set to announce a deal with Verizon, one that will create the first tiered system on the Internet.
