FCC's Throwback Thursday Move Imposes 1930s Rules on the Internet

Submitted by Bill St. Clair on Thu, 26 Feb 2015 21:47:57 GMT  <== Politics ==> 

Verizon Public Policy Blog - Verizon comments on today's vote by the FCC board to hobble the internet by classifying it as a telecommunications carrier under Title II rules. Aptly, they posted the notice in Morse Code, which I've quoted below, and then translated. They include a link to a PDF containing the text in a font resembling an old typewriter. [claire]

I used morsecode.scphillips.com/translator.html to do the raw translation, then added spaces and capitalization in Emacs.

"Today's decision by the FCC to encumber broadband internet services with badly antiquated regulations is a radical step that presages a time of uncertainty for consumers, innovators and investors. Over the past two decades a bipartisan, light-touch policy approach unleashed unprecedented investment and enabled the broadband internet age consumers now enjoy. The FCC today chose to change the way the commercial internet has operated since its creation. Changing a platform that has been so successful should be done, if at all, only after careful policy analysis, full transparency, and by the legislature, which is constitutionally charged with determining policy. As a result, it is likely that history will judge today's actions as misguided. The FCC's move is especially regrettable because it is wholly unnecessary. The FCC had targeted tools available to preserve an open internet, but instead chose to use this order as an excuse to adopt 300-plus pages of broad and open-ended regulatory arcana that will have unintended negative consequences for consumers and various parts of the internet ecosystem for years to come. What has been and will remain constant before, during and after the existence of any regulations is Verizon's commitment to an open internet that provides consumers with competitive broadband choices and internet access when, where, and how they want."

"In regard to the so-called social contract, I have often had occasion to protest that I haven't even seen the contract, much less been asked to consent to it. A valid contract requires voluntary offer, acceptance, and consideration. I've never received an offer from my rulers, so I certainly have not accepted one; and rather than consideration, I have received nothing but contempt from the rulers, who, notwithstanding the absence of any agreement, have indubitably threatened me with grave harm in the event that I fail to comply with their edicts." -- Robert Higgs

billstclair.com/vaccination.html is a page for Vaccination Resources. It's mostly anti-vaccine, but I've included a couple of big vaccine proponents.

Vaccine McCarthyism. What if the Vaccine Paradigm itself is Deliberately Flawed?

Submitted by Bill St. Clair on Thu, 05 Feb 2015 01:56:44 GMT  <== Science/Technology ==> 

Dr. Gary Null and Richard Gale at Global Research - it became clear in 2014, with many studies and the release of documents by Dr. William Thompson, a CDC whistleblower, that vaccines are not the magic bullet many people believe them to be. They may actually be a major cause of the diseases they claim to eradicate, and more.

I've noticed lots of fundamentalist vaccine proponents on social media of late. Hopefully, some of them will let down their religious blinders and listen to reason, before it's too late.

Rarely does a whistleblower emerge from the federal health agencies. Government and corporate entities that are notoriously hierarchical, such as the CDC, FDA, and Health and Human Services, ruthlessly prevent dissention from their ranks. In the Obama era, when whistleblowers are persecuted more than ever before, it is an act of great courage for a person to come forth and reveal government malfeasance, corruption, and criminal behavior. Therefore, it was a shocking surprise last year when a senior epidemiologist at the CDC, Dr. William Thompson, acted upon his moral conscience and released thousands of pages of CDC documents with research data to Congress that unveil the agencies long history of fraudulent studies and medical cover-ups that hid the serious failures and health risks of vaccines.

Master Mineral Solution (MMS)

Submitted by Bill St. Clair on Thu, 05 Feb 2015 01:39:41 GMT  <== Science/Technology ==> 

Archbishop Jim Humble is the inventor of MMS (Master Mineral Solution or Miracle Mineral Supplement), a 22.4% solution of Sodium Chlorite (NaClO2) in water. It becomes Chlorine dioxide gas when activate with citric acid. Mr. Humble claims that drinking small amounts can cure most diseases, including Malaria, Flu, cancer, and others. Protocols are listed in the right column of the linked page. More information on the wiki, including Basic Science of MMS.

The FDA is currently trying to suppress MMS, by prosecuting one of the US distributors, Daniel Smith.

I ordered MMS from mms-supplement.com. It was shipped form Australia, due to the FDA suppression. I'll report back after trying it for a few weeks. I'm hoping that it will help my daughter with her Lyme disease and Babesiosis.
