He will likely want more money than we are willing to pay, but he would fulfill the scat back role the Coach has mentioned. 


In Topic: FCC's "Net Neutrality" introduced to highly regulate the internet

Got to admit I am surprised at the reaction to this.  I thought all the net neutrality folks here would be happy with it. 

 

For those of you thinking that the Internet world will end because of this, take heart.  Once the next administration takes over, they can change it with a another vote.

This bill will change internet in a very bad way for future uses!

 

Its not a bill.  Its a change in FCC regulations.  One that ATT and other providers lobbied heavily against.  I would think that you would support it.

 

 

Welcoming today's news, the ACLU's legislative counsel Gabe Rottman says:

"This is a victory for free speech, plain and simple. Americans use the internet not just to work and play, but to discuss politics and learn about the world around them. The FCC has a critical role to play in protecting citizens' ability to see what they want and say what they want online, without interference. Title II provides the firmest possible foundation for such protections. We are still sifting through the full details of the new rules, but the main point is that the Internet, the primary place where Americans exercise their right to free expression, remains open to all voices and points of view."

In Topic: Obama vetoes Keystone XL pipeline, leaving it in limbo

I'm not expert, but when you lose the land to that they pay you "market value" which from what I've heard is never really what you'd get selling it on the open market.  Plus, if that land has been in your family, who can put a price on it?

 

If this was going to benefit us as a country or something like that, it may be worth it, I just don't see it right now.   

 

I am just wondering if its similar to powerline's where the Power company sometimes leases the land, or has a right of way on it, but the land reverts back to the owner at some point.  I don't really know for certain.

 

Fwiw, I think the issue is a political bone between the republicans and democrats, as well as an issue that has been blown way out of proportion by both sides in the discussion.
