Goodbye Net Neutrality, Hello Gilded Age Internet

February 03, 2014

Obama's NSA State of the Union

January 30, 2014
I can't say that I had very high hopes for Obama's NSA reforms. (Hello, Gitmo?) The man can still give a good speech, though, and make me feel like everything is going to be alright. Unfortunately, what really matters is the policy and what actually happens. After his recent announcement about r...

Global Warming Skeptics Meet "The Climateers!"

January 22, 2014
Contrary to popular belief, global warming did not end because of the Polar Vortex. If all you did was watch mainstream cable news, you'd think the entire world was covered with snow and freezing. While it's made for some great icy news footage, the media have portrayed a pretty United States-cent...

December 22, 2013
Between the "War on Christmas" and the accusations that Pope Francis is a Marxist, some people can't seem to make up their mind. Who better to wage a war on Christmas than the people who want the Pope to be more of a capitalist! Seems like the most holy Christmas ever was one without ram...

I'm an Internet Company, I'm the Government

December 16, 2013
With the major tech companies taking on government spying, maybe it's time these companies look in the mirror as well. I just couldn't resist the old "I'm A Mac, I'm A PC" analogy, seems like their relationship is so much like the internet companies and the government today. (Read more a...

Sure, it doesn't magically make Iran throw up their hands and destroy all their nuc...

Obamacare: National Website Disaster!

Obamacare: National Website Disaster!

October 28, 2013
Sure, there are some problems with the Affordable Care Act and Healthcare.gov is apparently a mess, but at least health care reform doesn't have slavery as a key flaw.
