The CORRECT spelling of the INTERNET is with a CAPITAL ‘I’!

I was recently listening to an interview with Michael Savage and Alex Jones. It was a sad interview for me, as the content of the conversation was very dear to my heart, the Internet.

They have finally come to takeover “MY” Internet, and YES the CORRECT SPELLING is with a CAPITAL ‘I’ as it is about …

  

I am compelled to issue this WARNING: WE are witnessing an HISTORIC EVENT … the HOSTILE takeover of the INTERNET!  

I can say “MY Internet” as I helped build it from baud-modem to Wi-Fi … As well, it belongs to other PIONEERS that risked literally life and limb, second and third mortgages, marriages  … WE took on a technology that there was no ‘college course’ @ that time, our ‘technical books‘ some the size of ‘War and Peace‘ were our guides on this unknown adventure!

1993 – The Internet was built for MASS COMMUNICATIONS of WE the PEOPLE! INTERNET = FIRST AMENDMENT= UTILITY!

I carried my cell phone, when they became available, in a BIG BAG. I had one of the FIRST 5 megapixel cameras, a 32″ screen with a ‘top of the line’ desk PC with as much ROM/RAM as I could pack into it, Sony Vaio 12″ laptop – one of the first of its kind, a 25 GB HD video camera that required a suitcase to transport …  Not like these ‘silly phones’ of today where people are falling off the ‘flat Earth chasing Pokemon’ … 

I was ‘surfing’ the CUTTING EDGE 

My company was part of the INTERNET REVOLUTION!

LIFE WAS GOOD!  … Until the ‘big guys’ got a ‘whiff’ of our success … 

The Internet in the days of the wild west as it was typically called, were the days of INTELLECT on the Net! 

We did not have SOCIAL MEDIA, nor did we have CENSORSHIP nor MONOPOLIES!

The Internet is a conglomeration of INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, that was  primarily engineered and …

MADE in AMERICA 

I proffer this information …

It is an “inconvenient truth”, but No, the Internet was NOT invented by Al Gore! 

THE INVENTION OF THE INTERNET

“Unlike technologies such as the light bulb or the telephone, the Internet has no single “inventor.” Instead, it has evolved over time. The Internet got its start in the United States more than 50 years ago as a government weapon in the Cold War. For years, scientists and researchers used it to communicate and share data with one another. Today, we use the Internet for almost everything, and for many people it would be impossible to imagine life without it.” …

Todays Internet ‘delivery > content’  should be a UTILITY of ‘WE the PEOPLE’ as it was intended, IMHO

As ‘antiquated’ as my ‘cutting edge‘ technology was back in the mid-1990’s … so, today, is the 1996 Telecommunications Act!

This ‘Act’ must be replaced with something more reflective of today’s society as the Internet is no longer just a ‘data service’ it is Voice, Video and  a SOCIAL PLATFORM! 

I believe the actual ‘hostile takeover of the Internet occured at the time of the “dot com bomb” … a lot of small businesses were gobbled up by the hungry Telcos of those days, which are the few today. 

Corrupt government and corporate America have monopolized a utility that was meant for WE the People.

They have corrupted the delivery system, so that only a ‘few’ participate in network offerings. While they profit in America their customer-service jobs are located in other nations. To add salt to wound they are subsidized by the American taxpayer AND they use their networks to SPY ON AMERICANS! 

Then of course we see Obama helping this ‘invasion’ of our Internet, in his last days of office … 

Obama administration backs plan to relinquish Internet control

“The Obama administration is getting behind a plan that would have the U.S. government relinquish its last bit of control over the Internet – a move Republican lawmakers are fighting tooth-and-nail.

The transfer was set in motion two years ago when a Commerce Department agency said it would cede oversight over an obscure, but powerful, Los Angeles-based nonprofit called the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). ” …

IS OUR COUNTRY TOTALLY OUT OF CONTROL?

WHERE WE GO ONE, WE GO ALL … #MAGA

Likewise, our Founders and Veterans did not PAY for our Constitution, with their blood and fortune so that ‘foreign corporations’ can MONOPOLIZE our First Amendment … because they were TOO LAZY or STUPID TO BUILD IT!

President Trump has been good about keeping his promises IDK if returning the Internet to ‘WE the People’ was actually one of them … But If I had a WISH LIST, Respectfully, Mr. President, this is one ‘request’ that I would add, return the Internet to its RIGHTFUL OWNERS!
