Supporters can debate with an anti-Ron Paul radio "political analyst" today at 3pm CST

Mr. Caryl J Boyd, one of our frequent and most ignorant trolls, has issued a challenge for Ron Paul supporters to debate him on his radio show today. If you have the time to take him up on this offer, I suggest you convince some of his listeners that Boyd is very, very misinformed. But, make sure you know what you are talking about ;) I have noticed on his Facebook page that not all of his listeners are happy about the misinformation regarding Paul.

Educate for Ron Paul Project?

I was thinking, there are long discussions about Ron Paul on other web sites. The opposition is rumored to have people that they hire to say negative things about Paul to sway public opinion.

Why not create link lists where we can go and post replies to negative comments in order to educate people politely about him? Could it have an impact?

Cain's 999 Plan - Tax on the Internet!

I was talking to my dad earlier about politics of the day and what Cain's "9-9-9" plan was actually all about. My dad came to the conclusion earlier today that a 9% national sales tax would have to include the good sold on the internet. I know that states can charge sales tax if the buyer and seller is in that state and some are trying to tax if there is just one end.

Has there been any discussion about this yet? This plan sounds like it has a lot of undesirables in it to me.

The internet is not the last bastion of free speach. it is the first!

We here seem to think everything is digressing as the media is losing its influence to governmental control... but for thousands of years the media has been renewed so that God programs the minds of the people and not other people... we are not people becoming robots... we are robots becoming people.... and more so with every discovery of a new media for which builds awareness over systemic issues.

The truth is that society is progressing into becoming self-evident no matter how much the bankers try to control it... the environment is controlling them.

Rick Perry in 1st Place Among Rick Perry Supporters

I know some of you have seen it before, but I have a Pro-Ron Paul sarcastic blog that uses satire to highlight the stupidity of the MSM and the other candidates. I just posted another article for your viewing pleasure!

Enjoy! Tell your non-RP friends. Maybe they will believe it ;).

WSJ: Congress contemplates draconian punishment for Internet lies

Should Faking a Name on Facebook Be a Felony?

Imagine that President Obama could order the arrest of anyone who broke a promise on the Internet. So you could be jailed for lying about your age or weight on an Internet dating site. Or you could be sent to federal prison if your boss told you to work but you used the company's computer to check sports scores online. Imagine that Eric Holder's Justice Department urged Congress to raise penalties for violations, making them felonies allowing three years in jail for each broken promise. Fanciful, right?

Think again. Congress is now poised to grant the Obama administration's wishes in the name of "cybersecurity."

Youtube Server Cache

Downloading a video from Youtube, I noticed the link contained the name of my ISP, Comcast.

My question is, are Youtube video cache servers located in Youtube facilities, rented from ISPs, or do ISPs like Comcast cache videos for playback themselves? If so, does that mean Comcast/NBCUniversal has the ability to directly block or modify content for their ISP subscribers?

The video I downloaded was served from:

Database Of U.S. Internet Pirates Will Be Decentralized

Starting in a few months, millions of online ‘pirates’ will be monitored as part of an agreement between the MPAA, RIAA and all major U.S. Internet providers. Alleged infringers will be notified about their misbehavior, and repeat offenders will eventually be punished.

The internet saavy of us will get it (I hope).
