Good by internet.  Expect things like Netflix, Amazon Prime and other things to start going up like cable bills do every 6 months.  When company A starts paying for preferential treatment, we all know how that's going to work out for everyone else.

 The FCC is a joke. Always has been, always will be. Why are they even an govt office? Oh wait, we already know the answer to that one.

They say that they won't target specific sites. Guess what, they will. And it will be in the wording. All video streams get throttled unless you pay us "X amount of money. Hulu doesn't pay, but Netflix does, etc. Now Hulu streams will be worse than before. So technically, they will be targeting certain companies/sites. 

Verizon won the battle, but they will not win this war. As a country, we really need to buckle down and remove lobbying. make it illegal. That's the biggest threat to any freedom we have.
ISPs could charge for improved access as long as they don't block Web services.

Well, that didn't take long. Filled out the application at  and got this just moments ago. Guess my artwork isn't for everyone. Wonder if that's why i don't sell shit in my store.




Hi Robert,
Thanks so much for your interest in working with us!

Unfortunately, having evaluated your work, the production department advised me that we will not be moving forward with your application process.

Thanks so much again for thinking of us. We wish you the best in your illustrator career!

Kind Regards,

last class this week. was moved up from June. Then it's all on to me to get these exams done. Just got the required passing grades on the practice exams. Now I can take my Security+. After that I will either continue studying the Net+ or move on to the MTA, as they seem a lot easier.

Just don't get it. I remember when i was in jr, every wed, there was religion classes after school, at the school. You did not have to attend. They had class room set up for every denomination that was in the school district. 

I had friends that want to this one, to that one and that one. All the while, I would occasionally stay after in study hall to do work, not attending any of them. And it never came between our friendships. 

Hell, at one point in jr high, i stopped saying those words myself during the pledge. Followed by not saying the pledge at all.  no one ever came down on me as an evil mind bending terrorist who one day, would blow up the school.  IF you didn't want to say it, you didn't.

People need to get over this shit.

I agree. It's so yesterday. I guess some people feel more threatened by this than they do things that can cause them real harm.

Quotes:

"Let's understand each other. I sang the first hymn when the stars were born. Not that long ago, I announced to a young woman, Mary, who it was she was expecting. On the other hand, I've turned rivers into blood. Kings into cripples. Cities to salt. So, I don't think that I have to explain myself to you."
