Net Neutrality

The internet today is a battleground between the internet service providers who want to charge more for faster access to certain sites and the lawmakers who want to make sure everyone has equal access. I could spend several paragraphs describing to you how your internet service provider (who already charges you for fast internet access) […]

Identifying with your Political Party

As of 2014, 42% of Americans claim to identify as something other than Democrat or Republican, yet the Untied States is still largely ruled by these two political parties since they still represent the vast majority of registered voters. Why do so many identify with political parties other than the big two, yet still remain registered with the […]

Security, Privacy, and Resetting the Net

Accusations of online surveillance by government entities are rampant. By now, you have all seen or heard of at least one clandestine government program, like PRISM, designed to spy on citizens by circumventing what was once considered to be fundamental security. The validity of these accusations and programs are in question, as would be expected. Is […]

Where I Stand Politically

I am neither Democrat nor Republican, for both suggest that I may be stagnant on certain issues with an unwillingness to learn. Nor am I Moderate, Centrist, or any other political affiliation, for all suggest the same limitations. I will never stop learning, and when my decision is required, I reach that decision logically after […]

Green Shipping?

Occasionally, I hear someone ask which shipping company is the most environmentally conscious. Look, the answer is simple. If you want to ship something in a “green” manner, just mail it. Why? Because the mail truck would have gone to the destination regardless. Mail trucks deliver mail to the destination every day except Sunday, while […]

Happy New Year!
