Hi Sarge… Hope you slept well.

I believe we, by your question, are approaching this matter, and everything else, from a different perspective. Let’s see if this is true. Then we can have an Intelligent, Thought Provoking, discussion.

One must approach ALL Power with cynicism. I don’t believe one should immediately believe Power when it says ‘I am on YOUR side, Trust me’. You can’t believe that. Can you? People of Experience and Maturity really know better. Correct?

‘Power Corrupts. Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely’. Correct?

I would not give Three (3) Republicans, nor any Right Wing Group, this Power. Would you?

Therefore IF we agree that Three (3) Republicans should not have this Power:

We agree that Three (3) Democrats, or Left Wing Group, should NOT have this Power. Correct? If not. Why not?

Regarding This Specific Proposal:

Since ALL Power must, for the sake of our Freedoms, be regarded as (fill-in the negatives). Why would you, or anyone else, be FOR the THE SPECIFIC’s of this, or any other Proposal, without knowing the Details. You would agree this makes no Intelligent Sense. Correct?

‘The Devil, is in the Details’. Correct.

Being cynical about any increase of Power by The King, Tsar, Commissar, Emperor, Government, MUST be viewed with suspicion. Correct? If not why not.

Anyone who is for something because of the ‘Title’ of an Act, Law, etc., without knowing The Details, has to be (fill-in the negatives). Correct?

Therefore, being against anything, until ALL The Details are revealed,: Is the only Intelligent, and Safe Position.

Correct?

But! But?!

Can't stir the pot if he answers - only if he asks!

Hi Gary...

One good thing about your Reply's:

The Reply, signifying nothing, is short. Unlike other's.

Remember this axiom: When ones Ideas are Bankrupt. Get personal, and silly.

Now let's see if you can/will respond to my forthcoming answer to Sarge, with an Intelligent and Thoughtful Disagreement.

I have faith you can.

Don't panic.
Leprosy Cases Hit Florida Counties
Some people might think of leprosy as a scourge from biblical times, but it still afflicts victims -- and a Florida county is reporting a rare increase in cases, with three people diagnosed in just five months.
In the past decade, before the new cases, only one person in Volusia County, Florida, was diagnosed with the disease.
http://abcnews.go.com/Health/leprosy-cases-hit-florida-counties/story?id=29258128

Yes Lynn, dont panic:)
Some of those leprosy cases were infected after interacting with armadillos, a known carrier of the disease.
How many armadillos have you met?

About Ebola. 101st Airborne Division cases colors, heads home after successful mission in Liberia.

How many armadillos have you met? Not one. Just googled an image. Yuk :(

Had one running through my rear yard, near Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, a couple of years ago.

Who knew.

President has no authority to Declare War.

Yes he does for at least 90 days. In a nuke world that is forever. Perhaps you should learn some of what powers government has.

"Declare War", a Constitutional Term and Specific meaning, does not mean Wage War.

The '90 Day Congressional Authority' is about Waging War, not Declaring War. Which is an entirely another level, concerning 'Treaty's and Obligations'.

The USA's last Declared War, Constitutionally Declared by Congress, was WWII.


Since YOU have READ the Act about NET NEUTRALITY, which points, specifically, are you against?


Aw, c'mon, broh! You've had more than 4 hours to answer. Why don't you answer questions asked directly of you?
[That's FOUR (4) good comebacks! ;)]

Sarge...

Get a life. This maybe important to you. Not me. Have more important things to do.

Just came home, and now going out, under swaying palm trees, to have a bite to eat. With the most beautiful woman in the world.

Just sit by your computer, and await my reply tomorrow morning.

The controversial Islamist leader Mullah Krekar has been arrested by Norwegian police, said the Oslo police said in a news release. The arrest was carried out after the Mullah Krekar commented on the terrorist attacks in Paris and Copenhagen in an interview with Norwegian broadcaster NRK.
According to police information, he has been arrested for having publicly called for a "criminal offense". In the interview, Krekar said among other things that cartoon makers of Muhammad deserves to die. He also expressed support for the terrorist attacks in Paris.
Krekar was recently released from a prison in Kongsvinger, where he was serving a sentence for threats against current Prime Minister, Conservative Party leader Erna Solberg and three Kurds.

Are these Verbal Threats. Or has he taken any action?

Until The West Declares War against...

Let's not lose our own Freedoms.

If you based two questions of the facts I placed before you, and they were asked to a random selection of over a thousand people in the US or Europe how many could answer both correctly?

Depends, if the question were: Is the sky blue and Does the sun set in the west, you might get over 50% to give a correct answer, but if the questions were does MMR vaccine cause autism and what is the spin of a Fermion, I doubt you would find many correct answers.

It is the issue with democracy vs. representative government and why layers of bureaucrats are required.

Must everything be only as smart as the dumbest person?

The choice being given in This Thread, appears to be, using my Philosophy, is this:

Which is preferable -

A Controlled, by Elites, Dumb Population, understanding what happens to ALL Power. Our last century shows, that the Results of Highly Educated Controlling, will eventually become the Most Dangerous.

Or a Controlled Anarchy. Where any problems will be less.

I believe, according to Human History, one Must Err on the side of Individual Freedom.

It is safer.

With the FCC's Interpretation of Title II, probably subjected to successful court challenges. The Good, will be thrown-out, with the Bad.

Yup. It's likely. I'm just hoping we have a window to lay the groundwork for another attempt. This would likely be near the end of this century or early on in the next one.

Highly unlikely it will 'lay a groundwork', as with Executive Amnesty regarding Illegal Immigrants, now stopped by The Courts.

Most people, I believe, including me: Believe in Giving these Immigrants 'Legality' in The USA.

Having 'Overstepped' His Authority in that, as The FCC appears to have done, in this case:

STOPS any meaningful reforms.

I haven't met any terrorist. Not that I know:)

So then why are you surprised that people who actually knew the guy mention some of the more positive aspects of what he was in life.

Don't forget, no one is every purely evil in every aspect of his being. Such villains you will only find in fiction.

Nazi's in The Extermination Camps, qualify?

The headline "FCC votes to classify Internet as a public utility" is posted here.

That is Net Neutrality wins for now.

This is a big win for us crunchers in particular and consumers in general.

We'll see if this favorable FCC ruling survives an assault from Big Media. For example the president of AT&T has threatened to sue.

Since you are for this Act, and have read it, of course:

Any there any 'Details' you might Question?

What are they?


I think the tough part to handle administratively ("enforce") would be the incomplete application of Title II. That is, the FCC has decided to pick and choose what to enforce. Indeed, this may be enough for the coming court challenges to be successful.

However, stepping back, looking at the big picture, I go back to the old Part 15 which included the term "Public convenience and necessity." This phrase was dropped in these latter years, in my opinion to the detriment of the public interest. Treating the net as a utility is right it seems to me. Under the concept of public convenience and necessity a given utility can grow large in power but be regulated to not exploit the customer base. The regulatory goal is to optimize the valuable shared resource for the user base, spreading access broadly across region and demographic. Thus the asset contributes to the improvement and advancement of society and so the benefits do not so narrowly accrue to the utility alone.

Basically agree with you, but...

My problem with this, and other related issues, is this.

With the FCC's Interpretation of Title II, probably subjected to successful court challenges. The Good, will be thrown-out, with the Bad.

This is why I believed any Significant changes should/must have been subjected to Long and Public review.

Besides the mistakes, and increasing blunders: Their level of Professional Journalism has suffered over the past couple of years.

I think we can see that all over the world these days. With the modern internet sources of instant information taking over, traditional media and newsprint are dying out. Hence standards are dropping in the struggle to remain in business.

CNN is the Cable News Network. I think the word "cable" gives the game away. Reuters and usually the BBC are trusted sources of fairly accurate unbiased news.

Agree about BBC and Reuters.

Have The New York Times delivered to my home for over 40 years. It is my 'First Read' of the day.

With great regret: Their professionalism has also eroded over the past few years.

Does any cop in the States have any common sense?

Common sense is dead cop, they intentionally train it out of them.

With some of the stories, you sometimes have to wonder if some of the police have actually been trained at all. And that seem to assume people are guilty before checking any facts.

Whatever happened to habeas corpus.

There are many, many, many PD's in The USA. With Different Training, Different Standards, Different Laws, etc.

And?






That may explain but it does NOT EXCUSE!

Who excused anything?

It was the ridiculous accusation(s) that Most, or a large percentage of Professors are... Because last year X Number Committed something negative.
You babel.
Just change Professor to Cop. Same Unthinking.

You babel

Not going to work. Do you understand?

Answer: No.

I, and other's, do thank you for emphasizing, by repeating them, my Idea's.

We do find your silly attacks very illuminating.

We do thank you.

Professors don't kill & most think.

OK to Murder.

Change to RAPE. Most, or a large percentage of Professors...

Of the 780,000 cops in The USA: How many cops do you know, or worked with? How many don't think?

Not correct, because most people don't have the education to make an informed opinion.

No... Your Education [sic] does not make you Superior to anyone.

You are showing Elitists Superiority at its worst.

What do you 'think' of, and describe The People?

The Masses, Peasants, The Great Unwashed, etc. Probably something negative. Who need Better Educated (AKA Superior) People, like you, to make their lives better, and STOP them from...

I thought we had evolved from this primitive thinking.

I was stating a fact not an opinion.

I know you REALLY believe that.

Very sad.

Three (3) People make this Enormous Change?


As little as 1 person has made major changes in recent US history. We give the President the power to declare war, and send off our young to be killed in the name of Country and the God that doesn't exist.

President has no authority to Declare War.

He can engage US Troops, and as Lincoln, as a First (and Last) Term Congressman discovered (Interesting History), Congress will not 'De-Fund', or Stop a War. Ford was the exception.

RE: Net Neutrality Part Deux - ALL Hail The King. He will save us. Except if he is a Republican.

NOTE: Nothing has really changed. This will be in the Courts for many, many, many Years.

And if the Republicans win The White House...
