Did The Republican Lead FCC Drop the Ball on Net Neutrality

People are always asking me “Leo is there something that Republicans have done that you disagree with?” My answer is always the same neither party is perfect, but based on history and many of today’s current political hot topics, the Republicans have been more right than the Democrats. However in this case of Net Neutrality they got it wrong, it should be noted that the FCC is a independent agency of the United States government.

The controversy around Net Neutrality comes down to some very basic, simple principles. Should carriers such as AT&T, Comcast and others be able to charge more for “more” internet access, should carries be allowed to block certain websites and/or force paid access to those sites.

The argument for a Neutral Net, is that the internet should be considered a public utility like electricity and water. In my humble opinion this entire idea appears to be “Big Corporations” looking to make another dime off the American people. Governor Murphy of New Jersey mentioned in a recent article “As a large consumer of Internet service, the state may be able to pressure ISPs into granting New Jersey residents the same equal-access protections afforded to the government.”

Governor Murphy along with many other Governors have recently signed Executive Orders forcing Internet Service Providers doing business in their states to grant equal access to the internet across all lines.

I think we have yet to hear the end of this story, honestly many people on the right and on the left currently seem uninterested in this news. Yet imagine an election, where liberal Facebook owners and liberal AT&T ISPs collude together to lets say suppress conservative news media outlets and information or imagine a day where right wing Comcast ISP board votes to suppress left wing websites or block access to liberal news media information. I know for many of you the days I speak of are so far off but for those of us who watched the last election closely we are aware that these days are already upon us.

What do you think? Net Neutrality or Free Market Business or somewhere in between?

The State Of Black America Under President Trump (1st Year) – Video

This may surprise many of you, in the video posted below. I mentioned how Black America during the 2016 election were scared into voting for Hillary Clinton and the Democrats. Down your news feed every 5 minutes you were warned of the racist “White Man” who was entering the White House and going to take away all of your freedoms. In my opinion many Black Americans are still psychologically living in fear, living with hate for a President that as of yet has done nothing so big and bad to us that the news media promoted to Blacks that he would. So far we are literally living in our best days in America.

Listen to the full video below and let me know your thoughts on the subject at hand. The State Of Black America Under President Trump (1st Year).

Black Unemployment Rate Falls To Lowest Ever Recorded

In the 45 years the data has been tracked, the unemployment rate for black or African-American workers aged 16 years and older has never fallen below 7 percent. The unemployment rate for black workers fell to the lowest rate on record in December. The rate fell from 7.2 percent to 6.8 percent in the month, beating the previous low of 7 percent set in April 2000. The bureau has data going back to 1972.

President Trump tweeted “African American unemployment is the lowest ever recorded in our country. The Hispanic unemployment rate dropped a full point in the last year and is close to the lowest in recorded history. Dems did nothing for you but get your vote! #NeverForget

Unfortunately there’s a lot of truth in that statement from the President. Minority voters have continued year after year to give there votes to the Democrat Party, yet under no Democrat administration has minorities ever reaped the benefits of supporting those candidates.

I will be the first to say so far, President Trump has dropped the ball on many social issues and cultural norms. Yet when it comes down to keeping his promises, strengthening the economy, brings back jobs and higher wages. The former Apprentice Star has been nothing, but money.
