My son likes to goad me about the net neutrality issue because I'm a professional working in the telecommunications industry. I see the good, the bad, and the ugly of FCC regulations every day. In addition, I also see the good, the bad, and the ugly of un-regulated morons like Comcast who don't have the moral fiber to do the right thing unless some government agency forces them to do it.
The controversy about net neutrality really gained momentum when Comcast decided to 'throttle' content that their customers were attempting to stream from Netflix. Throttling means that the Comcast computers were analyzing data packets in real time and putting anything from Netflix at the back of the line so that video content would stream much slower than it normally would. Comcast then went to Netflix and forced them to pay a fee in order to get Comcast to remove their throttling filters. Is that the kind of company you want to do business with?
Are these the same Taliban that Obama and Kerry are trying to negotiate with? Remember when we had a president who hunted down and destroyed evil, terrorist thugs instead of making deals with them? I miss America.
A teacher was burned alive while her pupils were forced to watch during the massacre at the Peshawar school that saw over 130 killed, it has been reported.
I saw the title of the news article referenced below and initially believed that this could be an interesting opportunity for the community to honestly discuss the real problems that are taking place in our nation. Problems like an out of control government that rewards families with welfare checks for splitting up and abandoning their children. Problems like teenagers being encouraged to embrace thuggish behaviors and entitlement mentalities. Or even the problem of an increasingly militarized police force.

In case you missed the Eau Claire news story about Veterans Day programs being cancelled here is a snippet:
The Patriotic Council says it will not be able to teach younger generations about the sacrifices veterans have made this year because the organization isn't able to properly do so.
There are several different reasons cited, but one of the main concerns focuses around firearms on school grounds.
Read the actual article here.
If I was writing this story it would have gone something like this:
"Honor, integrity, duty, and sacrifice suffered a loss against fear and liberal political correctness in one school district when pansy ass, pencil neck administrators with irrational fears denied school children the privilege of celebrating our veterans."
I miss America...
