Ok, so I was watching the UFC Show on Spike Tv tonight before bed and a commercial caught my eye. It was a sprite commercial. Lemon vs. Lime; It was a bit Surreal, there were two sumo wrestlers painted yellow and green running at each other in a dead forest or something ‘trippy’ and collide in the middle and crush a man’s head.
WEIRD! But that is not what I am talking about….INERNET TV! Throughout the entire commercial there was a bar at the bottom….that looked just like the bar at the bottom of streaming Internet videos.
So, what’s my point? The Internet finally gets the upper hand on TV. Big time TV Advertisers are realizing that statistics are showing kids spending more time on the Internet than they are in front of the Television…so much so that they are starting to make commercials look like the Internet. So what happens to the little guy? Well, big business fucks them.
Do some research on the bill that was just passed called Network Neutrality. Do you want to skip the research and find out what Network Neutrality is? It’s big business like Time Warner, AT&T and Verizon gold lining the pockets of a bunch of over weight high cholesterol, hooker fucking republican politicians that have never even used the Internet to do what is in the best interest of Big Business and not the people the politicians are supposed to be representing! They are taking the Internet away from us as you and I know it and empowering corporations to make money off of a Monopoly. Enron did it with their accounting fraud and Bush is doing it now in Iraq; screwing people over that don’t know any better. Wise up!
What these politicians don’t understand while they are flying around on their G5 private jets and making Sandra Day O’Conner wish she never aspired to be on the Supreme Court is that they are putting a choke hold on little business’ that are spread out all over the country making money on the Internet and spending it in OUR ECONOMY. What is going to happen to our economy when all of the Military contracts dry up because the American people finally make Bush pull our troops from Iraq? How is the American Imperialistic Government going to remain a super power if they disarm their people by stealing our Internet and giving it to corporate America? Isn’t that socialism? The revenue earned on the Internet is going to more than double last years revenue to something like $80 Billion this year…it is not all big business; it is small business’s and that is why big biz wants a chunk. “I want that, NOW!” They couldn’t get it legitimately and now they are playing dirty.
Summer told me at dinner tonight that she doesn’t think voting does any good; at first I was annoyed by it, but think about it. Millions of people are petitioning to stomp out the biased and BIG BUSINESS dominating the “Net Neutrality” Bill and it still moved up to the next level. I see where she gets her negative attitude on voting…but you should still sign the petition. Think about it…if politics could positively influence the Net Generation…this country may be run the way The People want it run…and an x-box at all White House Press Conferences.
Save the Internet today or your sprite commercial won’t be on Internet TV. Funny, all I wanted to blog about was streaming video graphics.
