ISPs Are Pulling a SOPA


Tweet They’re selling us out. Just weeks after Internet users from across the globe came together to to beat SOPA, the major ISPs are cutting a deal with Big Content to restrict web access for users who are accused of piracy. It’ll do much of the dirty work we were able to prevent when we […]

Being a Blogger Holds Legal Risks


Tweet If you are an American, you must be familiar with the constant daily argument that free speech is a right. The problem is that this “law” is challenged on a daily basis. It is challenged in many ways, including top secret government attacks on the character of the person practicing free speech. The reason […]

My Blog Readers Are Potheads


Tweet ….well maybe not all of them. But a whole heap of my readers find me by searching for the Illinois SB 1381 bill that is trying to pass medical marijuana in Illinois. I have found that the few posts I have written on the subject get more hits than the rest of my blog […]

Capitalism at it’s best. See the Facebook page here. I recently “liked” it. Now watch all the people come together as […]

California County Bans Toys From Happy Meals


Tweet Can you believe this? Misguided government control over something that parents should have control over. Whether or not their kids can have a toy in their happy meal (original story link was broken so I took it down). I find it ridiculous that a county thinks that they can make this decision. I can’t […]

Forgive Me… I’m a Stupid American


Tweet Ya know? It’s kind of funny. I watch my stats and users online every now and then and I see visitors coming from Russia, China, Japan, and many other places. I might be considered a stupid American for asking this, but how many of you reading are citizens of another country, and not some […]
