A lady just walked by me in the work hallway, carrying a donut and a cup of coffee. I felt like Ennis when he saw Jack Twist pull up in the red and white truck after four years.

Well, maybe that movie scene doesn’t exactly translate. But still. The smell of hot coffee and the sight of chocolate donuts in the morning and every thing else becomes irrelevant.

Cliff McIlvaine bomb shelter location

I’m always disappointed when I overlook the house with the bomb shelter on Prairie Street in St. Charles while driving to work.

I want a bomb shelter.

So apparently it’s a greenhouse and not a bomb shelter. A boy can dream, though.

It’s probably a good thing that I don’t have as much land as Cliff McIlvaine does. I was thinking on the way home from work that I’d have a railroad caboose and a pirate ship to go along with my underground bunker.

There’d be secret underground passageways connecting them all. And at the end of the last tunnel there’d be and extra large bed, a TV, and one of those little refrigerators you have to open with a key.

And then I’d have a taxi cab waiting outside the hotel with my very own cheese pizza. And then while eating said cheese pizza and enjoy a cab ride through New York, I’d perfect my Russian accent. Because I’ve been watching too much GLOW on Netflix.

“Russian cat only drink vodka distilled from wells outside Moscow.”

My Russian accent always ends up sounding like a bad Schwarzenegger impression. 😄 😢

I bet it’s not really a greenhouse. I bet it’s a SECRET BOMB SHELTER.

It’s hard to tell even from the street as he’s a row of that run the length of Prairie St. and half the 7th St block.

I’ve heard rumors that he’ll do a tour or two if you ask nicely. It’s on my list for 2018.

Jon Gabriel’s USA Today article on Net Neutrality

tcr! · Dec 14, 2017 at 6:25 pm

here I am asking Jon Gabriel for his source

So here I am asking Jon Gabriel for his source for his quote…

the commission will simply require Internet service providers to be transparent about their service offerings

…that was part of his pinned tweet article, End net neutrality. Federal meddling can’t improve the Internet.

He would only offer a link to the FCC press release. Everyone who’s for ending net neutrality hasn’t given one valid reason on how it’s pro-consumers.

I only stumbled upon the article after Ajit Pai retweeted it.

Ajit Pai Retweeted Jon Gabriels nonsense

The “transparency” only means that the ISPs will need to publicly disclose what services they offer. They don’t need to be transparent when throttling Internet traffic or when they’re giving priority to the companies that pay them for access to the fast lanes.

Since Comcast and NBC are one in the same these days, you better believe that Netflix is going to be in the slow lane while NBC’s streaming shows are gonna be in the fast lane. Maybe if Netflix pays up Comcast will give them a speed boost. And is Netflix going to simply absorb this cost? Nah, they’ll pass it on to their customers.

Also, from earlier in Gabriel’s article:

Following decades of exploding Internet growth, the government interjected itself with a barrage of new rules to stop an imaginary threat. As Pai put it, net neutrality “is a solution that won’t work to a problem that simply doesn’t exist.”

This threat isn’t imaginary. Before Net Neutrality was repealed today T-Mobile had carefully been giving partners no-data counts for their services. AT&T was in trouble with the government for giving Dish special treatment on its network. Telecoms are always looking for ways to maximize their profits.

I wonder how much the big telecoms paid Gabriel for his article. 🤔

I also found it disheartening that Apple, Google, etc. were quiet today while the FCC were voting to repeal. They have deep pockets and can afford to pay to get their music streaming. Have you ever heard of Bandcamp? Maybe not, they’re smaller but they pay artists on their site 80-85% of however much people spend. I wonder if they’ll be able to keep going when Verizon smacks them with the throttle bill.

In related new: State attorneys general line up to sue FCC over net neutrality repeal.

I’m still hung up on the “imaginary threat” part, too. Who can forget the early 80s when the government broke up Ma Bell into smaller companies because of anti-trust violations. The telecoms aren’t do-gooders here. They’re cut-throat corporations.

The 8 companies Ma Bell was broken into have been buying each other and now we’re back down to three. One of them, Verizon, just bought Yahoo and AOL to be renamed Oath. How much priority are they gonna give their new Oath baby? As much as they possibly can.

Verizon owns their roads, their trucks, their goods. Websites like tcrbang.com will most likely be stuck in the coming traffic jams.

I’m sure glad that five people from the FCC got to vote on and determine the fate of Net Neutrality. Of course that’s just what Ajit Pai wanted, being the former Associate General Counsel for Verizon and all. His Christmas bonus depended on it.

Why Net Neutrality Makes the Internet Great

The FCC wants to destroy net neutrality and give big cable companies control over what we see and do online. If they get their way, they’ll allow widespread throttling, blocking, censorship, and extra fees. You can learn more at https://battleforthenet.com.
