FCC Adopts "Net Neutrality"

Interestingly, there's some thought that the FCC may not have the authority to make "net neutrality" rules -- oh, yeah, and those rules are anything but "neutral." There's already talk of a checkmate by Congress.

Always interesting to me that the worst enemy of the Bill of Rights is our own government.

A personal note to the Founding Fathers: We're sorry. We blew it. You made it possible for us to live free and we blew it. We've given up nearly every personal liberty in the name of a false sense of security sold to the masses by the same type of maniacal government about which you warned us and against which you fought so bravely. We now have to ask permission to take a leak on an airline flight. We never deserved you. – Phil Murphy 7/4/02

"Always interesting"? The worst enemy of a pair of handcuffs is the perp who's wearing them. I call that pretty straightforward.

I suppose this is where I finally ask you to teach me Morse code ... you know, just in case.

If you are even a little bit musical, it's pretty easy to pick up. Do you touch-type? There is some really nice training software available.

I am indeed a musical touch-typist. Woo! New hobby!

Roberta X said...

It is important to learn it as a pattern of sound and not visually as "dots and dashes." I will see if I can find the S/W (freeware!) and will post a link at Retrotechnologist if/when.

Over at Hot Air, there's a proposal to retire the FCC. I can see issues with that, frequency allocation and all, but it does have an appeal.

If they'd stick to frequency allocation and leave the rest alone, there would be nothing wrong with the FCC.

Unfortunately, everything is political these days. Thus the FCC, in its current incarnation, needs to go away.
