Internet Neutrality Debate

Net neutrality is the principle that Internet service providers should not some internet content or access over others by delivering it faster. The battle over "net neutrality" is heating up as telephone and cable companies fight attempts to classify broadband services as common carriers, just a phone lines coast ot coast must be shared without interruption or bias. Corporations are battling to block the change, as they seek ways to pay for expansion of their high speed lines and continue to earn profits on consumer Internet usage. Corporations are seeking the right to charge on a tiered per use basis, and to offer premium packages, including charging more for business then individual access. Their proposals could lead to slower speeds for servers that do not pay for premium status, limitations on access to lines by competing companies and services. Despite conservative organizations being in favor of neutrality in the name of freedom of information and speech, Republicans on the FCC and many in Congress are coming down on the side of the providers (cable, telephone) that they need to charge more and split service to pay to keep up with technology and provide services "for all" Americans. The issue was pushed to the forefront by a Republican dominated FCC under President Bush, with an effort to steamroll the ability of providers to charge what they wish, have tiered usage and limit access to sites. The proposal was not finalized until after the transition to the Obama administration. Under a Democratic chair, it as stailmated as politicians of both parties do not wish to alienate the deep pocket utilities who oppose neutral and universal net usage. The intent of the administration is to uphold net neutrality and keep speed and access open to every user. However the party of "just say no" and big money have slowed progress either direction to a crawl.

The State of the Union: how will you vote?

5 people for every open job, in professional jobs the averages is 30 per job. Unemployment pushing ten percent nationally, fifteen percent in Nevada. 37 million Americans on unemployment with the real number estimated over 10 million (counting part time work like I do as "unemployed" if seeking or had full time work). That's one in three Americans.

Democrats are expected to pay the price at the polls, despite being pro-union and that the recession, debt and state of the union was created under a Republican President and there has been many positive things happening in just two years under Obama. 

Problem is if you do not have  job, or if you are worried about losing yours, or if your house is top heavy, or if your investments and retirement crashed , you want and need instant results, and for good reason. 

And your fear higher taxes despite tax cuts and incentive, due to the skyrocketing national debt amplified by moves to stop us from hitting a Depression, and at improving health care for all (like ending pre-existing conditions). Also for good reason and with an even stronger impact on our children and grandchildren.

Yet the policies of those likely to win if there is an upset landslide against Democrats and incumbents are those who believe that tactics that failed in the past and led us to the edge of  another Great Depression.

And the very politicians we are voting out of office in the name of "change" and "sweeping things clean" are the same people with the experience, connections, education and knowledge to get things done quickly,  once they stop using votes to "harm" those who disagree with them. Did they do it to themselves? Some did, others were stuck due to deadlocks they tried desperately to break. It appears those who chose to "just say no" at the expense of government and progress for Americans, will win just because Americans will blame all politicians for the lack of instant results. By numbers alone, the Democrats will pay the price.

But when you are worried, or desperate, slogans (supported and not supported), alternatives, promises are more likely to be believed because we have been taught that "change is good".

Change also gets us into wars, makes money for the very wealthy and cost every citizen in both money and stress.

So is there an answer?

How are you inclined to vote come November?

International giving

A study of giving to charities and to help others shows that the higher the happiness quotent of the country, the higher the giving. This factor is many times more significant than type of government or individual wealth.

The US ranks eighth in the world in per-capita donations to help others (includes government, corporate and individual).

But we see ourselves as the country that gives and gives and keeps on giving...
