Your Local Cable Company

Published by:

I’m leaving my ISP this month. It was one of the first “adult” things I did–sign up for a new utility bill for internet. Of course, when I called up asking for internet, I learned that it would cost a little less than $60 per month for internet. More than I wanted to spend, sure, but at $2 a day, it’s worth it for me to be online. But then, oh, how the charges crept up each month. New fee here, new service charge there. Renting a box? Extra $7 a month. New rates apply! At the time of my last bill, I was paying $87 a month. How could this happen?

To save money, I bundled internet and phone and TV and HB0 and Showtime. I didn’t want any of these things, but it was explained to me that if I cancelled them, I would save $2 a month. Obviously not worth it. But as the bill crept up, little by little, it felt like there was nothing I could do. I depend on a solid internet connection to do my show every day–to do my work. Living without it is *not* an option.

Is it so hard to imagine a world where a person can order internet, and get it, at a reasonable price, without having to bundle in a million other expensive and unwanted services? Here’s a cartoon about this issue. Maybe you can relate.

VIDEO: College Dorm Invaded by SWAT

Published by:

The Police State is getting deathly serious. SWAT teams are conducting “Active Shooter” drills at schools from kindergarten to university. No young person can escape the conditioning. The lesson is simple:

Men with guns. Do what they say.

Just watch this first-person angle of a recent college dorm room raid in Connecticut:

You can’t argue with a gun pointed at your face. Is this what your college experience was like?

Proponents of the police state are quick to defend the aggressive intrusions as “necessary to protect the children.” I think it’s time we had a discussion about self-determination, and what it means to be the master of your own life. Can anyone be the master of his or her own life, if strangers can storm into your home with guns and demand you follow their instructions? Isn’t that precisely the scenario from which police are supposedly “protecting” citizens? When military men break down your door, how can you be sure they have your best interest at heart?

It seems to me that the “Powers That Be” are intentionally stirring a domestic resistance, provoking violence to generate push-back. As those trusted with power continually overstep boundaries to the point where they’re terrorizing innocent people, they’re hoping someone defends himself and fights back. That’s the wrong move. It’s a trap.

If you use violence to resist those who violate your freedom, you justify the expansion of the police state. Peaceful people must instead outsmart those who employ violence in order to defeat them. Think several moves ahead.

Michael Dean After Dark Remix

Published by:

You might be tuning in to watch Michael Dean After Dark, but what you’re actually going to see and hear is Derrick J’s Remix, where I can do whatever I want with Michael’s audio, so long as both of our shows still sound good! Watch as I ignore Michael’s stupid arguments with my mute button. Instead, why not listen to this smooth jazz? Give me some feedback, y’all!
