Net Neutrality – Nothing to be Neutral About

The Internet is the last frontier of free speech, Net Neutrality will be the end of that.

The Internet is the last frontier of free speech, Net Neutrality will be the end of that.

Something happened the other day that most people probably didn’t take much notice of.   The FCC declared the internet a utility.
Did you feel the earth just rumble? No. Neither did I, didn’t expect it to either. At least not yet, and trust me that is part of the plan.
Net Neutrality could be the most misunderstood subject to come up in recent years. It sounds like something you want, neutral; take no sides, no winners, no losers. Treat all equally. Sounds great.

According to the ACLU Net Neutrality will protect us from those evil corporate capitalists looking to make a profit on providing us the services we like. In order to protect us, claims the ACLU, we need government intervention. What? Yes, the ACLU, wants the government to get involved to protect citizens who voluntarily purchase a service.

New Year, New Look, New Direction

We’re well into 2015 and I’m excited to say that our organization has taken a new direction.

After the great success of 2014, defeating Seven50, we realized that our strength is on local issues.  We can’t hope to turn around Washington from St Lucie County, but we can can be a force locally.  We have something no other group has, we can write about things that no other webpage reports on, local issues.  County Commission, PSL City Council, St Lucie School Board, state legislative issues, et al.  Where are your tax dollars going? How are your local politicians performing? We’ve got the inside track, and we can make a difference.

More than just telling you what’s going on we’re going to look to shape and mold policy.  Be your voice in local government.  But we can only make a difference if we all get involved.  We need writers, speakers, reporters.
