Dana Rohrabacher
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher

Dear Shoevians, I have a great little article for all of you today. I even have a quote from Congressman Dana Rohrabacher’s (pictured above) office, here in Southern California. First, Today’s Topic;

 

NET NEUTRALITY

.

Today

The Federal Communications Commission voted on Thursday to dismantle landmark rules regulating the businesses that connect consumers to the internet, granting broadband companies the power to potentially reshape Americans’ online experiences.” [1]

.

Now, My Dear Shoevians, I am not going to sit here and tell you what to think about this decisions. At least not in this article, look for another article soon. However, I am going to share with all of you a Quote I got from Alex at the offices of Rep. Dana Rohrabacher. Now, he is the representative for the California’s 48th district. Having said, one would (reasonably) think that all Congressmen and Senators would have an opinion on Net Neutrality. READ!

.

“Rep. Rohrabacher has no opinion on net neutrality.”

(as per “Alex” at the Representative’s Offices)

.

‘No opinion’ on the issue of the day? A voter might well imagine that a responsible and informed Congressman would have an opinion on net neutrality and the actions of the FCC today! I called many offices, today. Here are some of the answers:

.

“He prefers Title One to Title Two” as per Jenny and the offices of Rep. Joe Barton

.

“He wants 21st century laws for 21st century technology.” Sen. Roger Wicker’s office

{Funny thing IS? Title One and Two were both written in 1934! LONG before computers and the internet. Do you think he KNOWS this?}

Now, My Dear Shoevians, for each and every phone call I identified myself. I told them I was calling to support “Net Neutrality”. I did nothing to tip-up the people I spoke to, and each and every quote I have posted I informed the person at that office I was going to include these quotes in an article on my blog.

HOW can Rep. Dana Rohrabacher not have an opinion of the issue of the day… and one that will greatly effect the internet and thousands of businesses?

.

Thanks for dropping by, and I look forward to seeing you all here again soon!

Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. Today is Thursday November 5th, 2015 and at midnight, tonight, I will loose my broadband internet connection… for good. My Dear Shoeviansthis is the event that has hung over my head these past several months. Yes, my health is compromised and I am physically unable to maintain my previous writing/publishing schedule. However, though my desire to write and publish has never left me, I just couldn’t bring myself to committing to something that will end… tonight.

.

For the past five years my broadband internet connection was provided by Clear. Clear is merging with Sprint, as of 12:01 tonight, and ending my five year relationship with the only broadband 4G LTE internet in my area. Living, as I do, in a ‘non-apartment’ building (due to insufficient income –S.S.D., I am unable to ‘qualify’ for an apartment) I have limited ‘options’. The building comes with basic cable (included) and for that reason Time/Warner will not provide my own internet connection.

.

Until, unless, I can find and secure a broadband internet connection, My Dear Shoevians, this will likely be my last posting here at The Other Shoe. After five years and more than 650 articles; spanning the depth and breadth of topics and subject matter from NASA/JPL Mars Exploration from Opportunity/Spirit to the current Curiosity rover, to cooking/baking, American politics to international treaties and affairs. My Dear Shoevians I have worked to entertain and enlighten you, as an audience, these past five years.

.

It is my ardent hope that, within the coming weeks/months, I find another broadband internet connection. I am not only loosing my internet voice… I am loosing; my ability to play on line games (like World of Warcraft, Aion, Rift, and FPS games), Netflix, Vudu, and all but limited (email and browsing) internet availability. YES! My Dear Shoevians, this IS the reason for my emotional distance and depression. My connection to the internet has been a connection to; friends, family, Facebook, games, my BLOGS… life outside the four walls I live.

.

Finally, I would like to say “Thank you!” to all of you, My Dear Shoevians, for years and years of readership. Without witch, I could have never made it through my battles. So, for now, I hope this isnot “Good-Bye” but merely… until we meet again.

.

Adieu!

.

Thank you!

.
