Net Neutrality, Both Sides Stink!

 I am NOT a fan of cable companies. Their customer service is generally terrible. (I will say though that every “Cable Guy or Gal” I’ve ever dealt with were super cool.) I am referring mostly to the experiences I’ve had on the phone as well as stories I’ve hear about people visiting their service centers.  In my case the local cable company has been harassing me non-stop for the past few years since I ended our terrible relationship. They send AT LEAST one piece of physical mail to me every week, they call me constantly and even have sent people to my house. One person was so pushy that I escaped inside my house to avoid him. I laugh as I see other companies such as Netflix strongly challenge their dominance in entertainment and Google strongly challenge their dominance in high speed internet offering.

I am also NOT a fan of the FCC. I am truly blown away by the narrative that the FCC and government are the “Good Guys” in this whole debacle. Not to mention the fact that the guy who now runs the FCC now is the one who abolished the policy. This clearly  shows how unstable thier oversight would be. It’s way too effected by political persuasion. What if the next head of the FCC whom is appointed by the next president takes it way far the other way? Say this person comes in and says we have to monitor and limit the sites you visit because they may be linked with “terrorist,” “violent” or “suspicious” activity. Or what if the next person is some right wing nut job who tries to make porn or nudity.. or even foul language illegal. You know… like they did with radio and then later with TV.

Ok great Brandon, If you don’t blindly support or believe Giant Corporations OR Giant Government who do you support and believe in??

I support and believe in myself and my fellow like minded humans. I say everyone who is outraged about the repealing of Net Neutrality should get together with me and we can start our own private “watch dog” group. This group could be a non-profit organization that would keep an eye on all of these giant cable companies and other internet service providers. We could investigate and report on cases where people are unfairly treated. There are more than enough people whom are outraged by the repealing of Net Neutrality to make a difference in the eyes and bank accounts of these giant companies. We could organize boycotts when we see something wrong. We could get together and work with smaller companies who offer a better way. Let’s depend on ourselves. At the end of the day Giant Corporations and Giant Government both focus on their own interests first. Shouldn’t we?

Danger!! Do NOT Buy Bitcoin rn.

Has Brandon gone mad?! DON’T buy Bitcoin??

This is the short version of how I came to the conclusion that buying gold may be (as I write this in early December 2017) a better idea than buying Bitcoin.

From what I am seeing on social media many people would most likely disagree with me on this. But for those who agree, or just trust my judgement… Go buy gold! For those of you who are still skeptical… Bravo! I admire your skepticism and please read on.

First some quick Bitcoin and crypto-currency overall benefits that I absolutely love: Bitcoin is a totally free way to make a money transaction through the internet and it really could change the way humans interact globally in a very positive way. The same way the internet changed the way we communicate. Google it if you are unfamiliar or listen to Andreas Antonopoulos on Joe Rogan’s Podcast. 

Also I must admit that Bitcoin is sexy. Bitcoin has made ordinary people into millionaires. Even I must admit that I regret not buying bitcoin a couple of years ago when I was super close to doing so. Unfortunately for me because if I did I would be writing this article while sitting on the deck of my yacht (not on my living room floor like I am now) after having SOLD the majority of my Bitcoin.

Yes SOLD and here’s the short version of why:

Bitcoin is a currency just like the Dollar Bill. Most people who own Bitcoin right now are not using it as a “money” to go and buy stuff. They are sitting on it as an investment. This means Bitcoin is not being used for it’s primary purpose, which is a way to trade for goods and services. Smarter people than me have pointed out this is most likely a sigh of an artificial demand. Meaning that people are only buying bitcoin because they want to make money from it’s future success and not because they want to use it to buy things.

When you have an artificial demand for something a “bubble” is created. The value rises unnaturally for a time. This causes a buying frenzy which pushes the price, in this case, of Bitcoin way past it’s “true” value. This will eventually lead to market correction or “Crash” in the price.  The “smarter than me” people, whom i reference at the bottom of this article, do NOT all think this would necessarily be a bad thing for the overall success of Bitcoin or Crypto-Currencies in general. Obviously really bad for those heavily invested in Bitcoin though. There are many examples of this throughout history such as “Tulip-Mania” in the 1600s  or The “Dot-Com Bubble” of the late 1990’s.

So that’s the short version of why you should stay away from Bitcoin rn(Right Now LoL). And why should you buy gold?? Well there is no time here for that. Maybe next time…

(From articles I am seeing today it looks like Bitcoin may already be headed for a major market correction. So, I may be late to the party on this. Either way I hope you enjoyed this article. Visit Comedylol.com to listen to my podcast.)
