“Net neutrality” — ever wonder what the term means and what the issues are in the controversy over “net neutrality.”   This article  by Marvin Ammori writing  at Wired explains.  The political gamesmanship involves a classic example of the use of an exception that swallows the rule, enabling the proponents to claim they support some compelling emotion laden theoretical rule that will be meaningless after being subsumed by other provisions.  A pure PR ploy that will be spouted shamelessly. Sort of like Obama’s promise that you can keep your insurance plan or doctor . . . it’s just that it / he cannot survive under the  many other provisions of the law.   Thanks to Doug Kelly for bringing it to our attention.

Phoniness knows no end.  Consider this report from John Hayword writing at Human Events.

Evidence that the “climate change” racket is falling apart has been pouring out of the conference under way in Warsaw.

Japan’s target is shifting from a 25 percent reduction to a 3 percent increase over the 1990 baseline?  That’s pretty dramatic.

. . . The latest effort by “developing nations” to loot the West with environmental dogma is known as “climate equity.”   . . .

This little scheme also folds into the new cult talking points about why none of their doomsday predictions have come true, and there hasn’t actually been any real “climate change” over the past 18 years and counting: it’s a much slower process than the charlatans expected, back when they were talking about North American coastlines vanishing beneath Arctic icewater before the first decade of the new millennium was done.  Now they’ve re-calibrated their theoretical models and concluded our well-deserved global warming doom will be coming in another decade or so – unless, of course, we accept a lower standard of living, submit to more government control, and give a gigantic amount of money to the Church of Global Warming immediately.  This time doomsday is coming for sure! . . .

And consider these quotes and admonitions as suggested by RD — from Liberty Tree Quotes:

Think Homeland Security

“I cannot say that our country could have no secret police without becoming totalitarian,but I can say with great conviction that it cannot become totalitarian without a centralized national police.”

— Justice Robert H. Jackson (1892-1954), U. S. Supreme Court Justice
Source: The Supreme Court in the American System of Government, 1955

Think NSA

“It is poor civic hygiene to install technologies that could someday facilitate a police state.”  

— Bruce Schneier. Source: Secrets and Lies: Digital Security in a Networked World, 2000.
