Since Tuesday’s Court Appeals ruling repealing the FCC’s ruling that Comcast (and other Broadband service providers) could not limit their bandwidth to certain websites or services, and thus keep the Internet free and open, there as been a lot of talk about what exactly this means for big companies and for us, the consumers.

Obama Wins Nobel Prize

About a month ago, I wrote about what has happened to this country since 9/11. It’s not good; nobody has respect for those who think differently.

The NYS Obesity Tax

When my mother told me about the NYS Obesity Tax proposed by Gov. Paterson, I actually didn’t believe it; but as it turns out, it’s true. This is a horrible, horrible idea for several reasons. First of all, I like how NY is becoming a nanny state. “We know what’s best for you, and we …
