So Biden wants to “emancipate” wealth? OK, let’s take a look at how he got his

Biden is the quintessential political Cheshire cat. (The Washington DC subspecies.)  The guy can smile through anything. Probably a good thing to be able to do if one is Vice President Biden.

“Just keep smiling.

Did I just cozy up to the nominee’s wife on stage? Why did I do that? Oh man. Damn, why can’t I remember to keep it back stage!

Just keep smiling.”

How come Google got to see proposed “Net neutrality” rules (and get them changed) but the public cannot?

Putting aside the fact that Google may very well be right here this development just reflects whose interests are represented at the FCC. It’s not ours that’s for sure.

Why won’t Commissioner Wheeler testify before Congress before the vote? Why can’t the public see the now secret rules before they are adopted? Google apparently got to.

Minnesota state senator proposes a “none of the above” option on the ballot

This is something I think anyone who is fed up with the 2 party system can get behind. I certainly could. The only people who would possibly object to this idea are the hacks in power who feel like they’ve “paid their dues” in the party systems.

I’d vote “none of the above” pretty much every time on a statewide and national level. I’ll bet many many others would too. (That of course is what the parties are afraid of.)

There should be sponsors for similar legislation in every state. Said sponsors would immediately become targets for party hacks however and would need vocal support from the public to survive.

At the very least we should be able to see the new ‘Net neutrality’ rules

We should be able to see the rules before things start happening officially. I think we’ve all had enough of the “we’ll find out what’s in it when it goes into effect” bit. If there is nothing of concern in the rules then the FCC and the administration need not worry. The public generally is pro “net neutrality” (though most, including many people making decisions in Washington, don’t really have a good grasp of the concept). So it might be an easy win.

We have been generally critical of the administration’s push.

But whatever side of the issue I think everyone can agree that seeing the rules, letting the public vet the rules, before they go into effect would be a good thing to do. Let’s hope Chairman Wheeler is listening.

Why would the administration want to keep the rules secret?
