… A Superb Description of Net Neutrality [#Seton Motley]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,June 21st,2016

.. Seton is a net friend of mine ..

.. I am glad that I ran across this piece by Seton …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the Web Presentation ..

.. it gives a superb presentation about what ” Net Neutrality ” is , and what it is designed to do …

.. N.N. is designed to drive out private investment from the ‘ Net , and socialize it , leaving the government in charge …

.. scary thoughts , hey ! …

— update — this was written back in November . It is more pertinent now , more than ever . Especially now the the Federal Communications Commission has adopted the Net Neutrality rules in a very , very wrongful process . They did not even open up the rules for public access , much less public comment , before the rules were adopted . Also , they really do think that those rules will  stand up in court …

.. I do not think so …

… Syriza wins Big in Greece [#euro] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,January 28th,2015

.. and the Euro is in significant trouble …

.. the Euro [a currency] was always an experiment . Locking in the exchange rates of currencies of major countries [such as Germany , Britain , France , and Poland] and then creating a new currency to replace the old ones was going to be tough sledding . Well , the Greeks are going to provide another rough test ..

.. [h/t — Bloomberg.com]..
.. [link] to the news report ..

.. Greece ‘ s new PM [Alex Tsipras , of Syriza] wants to end the austerity program , and begin to relate the economy . He does have political backing [of the Greek people] , but he will not have the financial backing of the major financial markets , nor that of the major countries . Eventually , there will be a shakeout in Europe , and somebody will have to give ..

.. if Greece does , Syriza will quickly collapse , and be thrown out on its ear . If the major countries do , then the Euro could well be in serious trouble …

… Not A Big Surprise [#Vets turning to the American Legion]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,July 19th,2014

.. not a big surprise .

.. considering the condition of the Veterans Administration , especially the mgmt. …

.. [h/t –– wchildblog.com]..
.. [lin] to the blog post …

.. I am the son of a Legion member . Turning to the V.A. for him while his health was declining was not much of an option . I got much better care from the private sector , from the American Legion post members (from various posts) , and from Medicare Advantage ..

.. those folks knew what they were doing , how , and why . The V.A. does not , and needs a complete rethink …

… Nice Way to Restart the Space Race , Dummies [Russian Ban on US use of ISS]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,May 22nd,2014

.. are theRussians really this stupid ..

.. the Russian private sector in space tech is just a bunch of oligopolies (groups) and monopolies (state companies) . They compete with their egos , but not which each other . They sure are not a threat to China , much less the U.S. , Europe , and Japan …

.. the Russians may want to do more in space . The problem is that they cannot afford to do it . Their economy is not diverse enough to support the development of true private competition . They do not even have a clue about venture capital , much less start – up companies . They may want , for example , to go to Mars , but forget it …

.. [h/t — theDailyTelegraph]..
.. [link] to the article …

.. The Chinese are far closer to doing it . The Chinese economy is far more diverse , and co – operates with outside nations , even their rivals , which is something that Russia does not . Eventually , the Chinese will go to the Moon , first , and , perhaps , build their own space station . Hell , the more the merrier …

.. Our country is getting back off of its butt . It is just right now that people do not see it . NASA and other government agencies are acting as development agents , providing the targets for the private companies . Our go – go and individualistic nature is now really generating takeoff speed . Once those companies hit it , watch out …

.. We can and will build a new Space Station , joining the Chinese , the Russians , and others . Ours will , though , be much larger and far more diverse . It will also be a jumping – off point for missions to Mars , the outer planets , and beynd . If we go back to the Moon , it will be to colonize it , not just to visit . Been there , done that …

… Another Spot – On Shot by Dr. Charles [ObamaCrapCare] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,December 1st,2013

.. this one is a continuation of the antics of the government over the last 50 years …

.. Also , it is a result of the Law of UnIntended Consequences , resulting from the adoption of the ObamaCrapCare bill . These idiots never seem to learn that their actions have consequences , and because of them , what happens results in the opposite effects from what they wanted to happen . Duuuh !!! ….

[link] — video clip from the Special Report with Bret Baier panel .

.. These morons use the reductions in reimbursements to doctors and hospitals to finance their Rube Goldberg contraption . Then , when things start to happen , like when hospitals choose not to participate in the ObamaCrapCare networks , or , when the State Exchanges exclude them , and some of them go kaput ! , well , duh !! …

.. Also , they do the same with reimbursement payments to doctors . They expect from their economic analysis that the same or greater #s of doctors will continue to practice . Then , when multitudes of doctors leave the profession , or choose to retire , they are shocked , yes , shocked by the action . Then they wonder why the newly insured cannot find a doctor to treat them .

.. Dummies , if you want medicine to function properly , you need to reintroduce market ecconomics into the system . That includes the functions where the government participates in the system . You think medical inflation in the private sector is the result of the private sector . It is not , stupid . It is because of 50 years of low – ball cheapskating by governments that the inflation comes privately . What do you expect ?
