Net Neutrality and the Stamp Act of 1765

Once again, here we are, getting ready to repeat history. If you don't care or understand anything about Net Neutrality, you better stock up on canned and dry goods and stay the Hell out of the way, because what is about to happen may cost you dearly if you are caught in the crossfire.

First. a history lesson about the Stamp Act of 1765, one of the many triggers of the American Revolution.

Needless to say, the acts and coercions listed in the aforementioned articles ended badly for the British occupiers of the colonies. Now the self-proclaimed overlords are trying to gag all of us again.

Who Is Running Our Country?

Here are the party platforms for Democrats and Republicans. Are these brand new ideas? Are these just lies they tell you so you will vote for them?

Do they work for the voters or the donors? Are their donors' needs the same as their voters' needs, or are their donors' needs in conflict with their voters' needs?

DNC Leaked Emails Edited?

The leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) were published by Wikileaks in July of 2016. As of this post, they've been public at least sixteen months. The revelation caused immense turmoil within the organization.

Some people maintain the emails were hacked by Russia while others suggest the emails were leaked from within the DNC.

A Previous post here at Empire Dusk suggests the possible players involved in leaking the emails.

Meanwhile, in all this time, no one disputed the authenticity of the emails, either directly, or implied through behavior. No one suggested the emails may have been edited or otherwise modified, until Donna Brazile revealed her new book in a post on POLITICO.

Now, amid the clarion call that it's Russia, Russia, Russia, after sixteen months of scrutiny and exposure, it's being suggested that the emails were edited.
Whether or not the Russians or anyone else hacked or leaked the emails, didn't change the facts of the emails, and the facts of the emails are apparently authentic enough to have resulted in the changes of leadership at the DNC. Despite the Associated Press' (AP) sychophantic report.
