Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Odds and Sods edition

Folks, I was going to do a bit on the exploding heads over at Freeperville on the Iran nuclear treaty talks,  but there’s only so many ways one can say “derp” and “Chamberlain”.

Instead, we’re reaching way back for some finely aged (and frankly, about to burst) drums of Freepitude.

What was vexing the Freeperati way back in February? Vaxxers!

Dr. Ben Carson: No “Philosophical” Or “Religious” Exemptions For Vaccinations ^ | February 3, 2015 | Breitbart News

Posted on ‎2‎/‎3‎/‎2015‎ ‎10‎:‎15‎:‎43‎ ‎AM by Biggirl

Dr. Ben Carson, a likely 2016 GOP presidential contenders, believes there should be no “philosophical” or “religious” exemptions for vaccinations. “Although I strongly believe in individual rights and the rights of parents to raise their children as they see fit, I also recognize that public health and public safety are extremely important in our society,” Carson told The Hill.

I suppose I expected more of a mixed reaction from the Freeperati, if for no other reason that anti-vaxxers tend to slew left somewhat.

Government is force.

How much force should the government apply to you and your children to enforce this?


Jail time?

Removal of children from “uncaring”, “neglectful” households?

Forcible vaccination at gun point?

Summary execution of non-compliant parents?

You tell me…

Of course – I should have expected this. Government = bad when you want to keep disease from spreading, and = good when you want to kill a whole bunch of people with bombs.
Got it.

Poisoning and sterilizing our kids under the the facade of “immunizations”.

It’s what they do, innit? I mean it’s right there in the Hippocratic Oath: “…utmost respect for human life from its beginning – unless of course it’s kids – then you should poison and sterilize them.”

And some FReepers think Carson is a Freedom loving American? LOL!

Which begs a question.

Would YOU rather have your children take a chance on a complication from a vaccine,

OR would your rather put flowers on their little graves for the next 40 years because they died of a preventable epidemic?

Scott Walker Suggests Protesters Have Prepared Him for Terrorists

Best Applause Line: “We need a leader who will stand with Israel,” said the governor of Wisconsin.

Crickets: Describing, early in his remarks, his longstanding interest in the founding fathers.

Red Meat: Mr. Walker spoke at length about his record as governor and made broad references to foreign policy touchstones like Israel, Iran and the fight against Islamic terrorism.

Toughest Question: From a heckler, who shouted about workers’ rights. But Mr. Walker turned it to his advantage, joking that protesters had followed him from Wisconsin.

Entrance Song: “Coming Home,” by Avenged Sevenfold, a heavy metal band out of Southern California.

Mood in the Room: Intrigued and mostly appreciative. Mr. Walker’s performance at the Iowa Freedom Summit in late January catapulted him to prominence in the early stages of the Republican race. Many people at CPAC wanted to see if he could deliver again….

Net Neutrality: Government Destruction Of The Internet The Inquisitr ^ | 3/1/15 | David Webb Posted on 3‎/‎1‎/‎2015‎ ‎8‎:‎34‎:‎08‎ ‎PM by Chris in VA

In a landmark decision on net neutrality, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) declared the Internet a public utility under Title II of the 1934 Communications Act as reported by CBS News. The 3-2 split decision forces Internet service providers to not actively discriminate in terms of what content is transmitted at what speed.

Obama issued a statement supporting the net neutrality decision.

“…will protect innovation and create a level playing field for the next generation of entrepreneurs.”

Just like Obamacare has? Just like the stimulus package?


If the government is in charge: costs will go up, inefficiency will reign supreme, and it will be worse than ever.

Uh, Mr. Dumbass?
This is to keep the status quo and prevent providers from putting sites (like Free Republic) in the slow lane if they don’t pony up some extra cash. In other words, the government has been in charge the whole time, you shitwit.
So – who can we blame for this horrible net neutrality thingy?

I notice that automakers actively discriminate against certain customers. I went to a Mercedes dealer and told them that I had been offered the opportunity to buy a used Honda Accord for $19,000, but I wanted a new Mercedes for $19,000, instead.

They actively discriminated against me!

All automakers should be forced to sell cars for the same price!

To: Jack Hydrazine

I have an internet connection that is slow, hovering around 760kbps, because it’s CHEAP.

Am I going to be forced to pay for a more expensive, faster connection that I don’t need? I.e., Obamacare for the internet?

I’m sure the plan will have many effects: knocking people off the internet entirely, throttling free speech, paying off Obama’s cronies, paying off big donors to the DemoCommunist party, etc.

I’m quite sure that a major purpose of this plan it to throttle the flow of information as the final crackdown begins, guns are confiscated, and counter-revolutionaries and slanderers of the prophet are taken off for beheading and burning.

One – count them – ONE Freeper gets it and tries to explain it to the rest of them.
To: Chris in VA

Here’s something that I’m trusting WILL CHANGE as a result of this. I’ll just give you the example from my own personal details, so you know what I’m talking about.

I currently pay for 150 Mbps down and 20 Mbps up for Internet service at $100 a month. And I get Netflix, and they currently pay for their Internet service (both speed and capacity) for all the customers they are streaming to. I can’t tell you their cost on that, because I’m not privy to it. I would imagine that they’re paying one heck of a bill, but that’s their business and they DO HAVE TO pay for the service to have each of their customers access it at the right speed and for the capacity to serve all their customers.

So far, so good. That’s the way it’s supposed to be. I pay for my access at whatever level I want and need (some pay a lot less for less capacity and speed, but that’s their choice). And Netflix pays for their service and what they need.

Each of us pay for increasing levels of service at an increasing price … which again … is the way it should be and the way it is.

AND … I will note that my 100 Mbps down is WAY OVER NECESSARY SPEED AND CAPACITY to get the Netflix movies. One only needs about 15 Mbps down to do that at HIGH RESOLUTION and it will work fine. I have IN EXCESS … about 135 Mbps … that is just idle and available if necessary!

NOW … here is what I am confident will be DECLARED ILLEGAL by this action at the FCC. It is the “THIRD CHARGE” being levied, in which a telecommunications company attempts to “hold their customers hostage” to force Netflix to PAY THEM MORE, or elese their own customers at that telecommunications company won’t get the service, even when they have PAID FULLY FOR THE SERVICE!

This is what Comcast did with Netflix in which they made it so that their OWN CUSTOMERS could not get Netflix without having problems. It didn’t matter if the customer PAID FULLY for 150 Mbps down for a 15 Mbps movie, Comcast THROTTLED IT to make sure that their own customers at Comcast would COMPLAIN TO NETFLIX!!

SO … what Netflix ended up being EXTORTED TO DO by Comcast is paying several millions of dollars to get a “special deal” in which Comcast would take off the THROTTLING of their own customers (never mind they paid fully for the full capacity of their own accounts) and they created a SPEED LANE for Netflix.

The day after Netflix PAYS THE EXTORTION all the customers of Comcast got their movies without any problem … LOL …

NOW … “THAT” is what will be ILLEGAL … namely those THIRD CHARGES (beyond what Netflix already paid for full access and speed and beyond what the customer paid for full access and speed) … and it will make THROTTLING ILLEGAL and it will make SPEED LANES ILLEGAL!

And for that, I say … Good for them! … 🙂 …

They had to destroy the party in order to save it.
Actually, that’s a pretty good idea.  I would LOVE to see the Republican party split into three parts:
The “moderates” (GOP-e in Freeperspeak)
The oligarchs and would-be/never-gonna-be oligarchs
The “social conservatives” who long for the good old days of 1860
Then we could have us some real Kilkenny Cats action.
On pay-per-view, hopefully.
And I volunteer to help fill in the hole after the last bout.

  1. “[Walker] is Ronald Reagan of our generation…”

    I can’t argue with this. Walker’s working day and night to complete the destruction of the middle class that Reagan only began.

  2. With the level of unrest in FreeperLand, it’s looking more and more likely that the 2016 nomination is going to be a clownfight. AGAIN.
