I still think BDS means Bush Derangement Syndrome, it is similar to ODS and TDS.   

Modern usage.... Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (I had to look it up)

Scott Adams predicted that the liberal criticism of President Trump (peace be upon him) would generally come in four phases:

Phase 1: "Trump is Hitler!"
Phase 2, after he doesn't do any Hitler-like things: "Ok, he's not Hitler, but he's incompetent!"
Phase 3: "Perhaps he's not incompetent after all, but he will be ineffective!"
Phase 4: "All right, he's not ineffective, but I don't like it."

We officially entered Phase 4 today. HuffPo published an article today lamenting that "One Year In, Trump Is Winning"

"All I do is win... win... win."

...and Piers Morgan agrees, even though he's on the side of America/Trump and not the enemedia, but he's pointing it out too: ]

President Trump (peace be upon him) is keeping promises, and the liberal media hates him for it.

Geez ... it seems *everyone* gets "net neutrality" wrong. Particularly agitating is the fact that Obama got it wrong, Trump got it wrong, and everyone's just making up their own idea of what it means. They need to put me in charge of the FCC.

We *do* need net neutrality, but only in specific places (which is why "let the government control the Internet" is too heavy-handed). Was "Title II" too much? Perhaps, but it might have also been the closest available framework.

Sadly, we got *close* with DSL. Telcos were required to offer "unbundled elements" to other carriers. This, quite simply, is the simplest way to circumvent the last-mile monopolies or duopolies that are present in most markets. Unfortunately, cable and FTTH providers are not bound by this obligation.

Requiring last-mile providers to offer unbundled elements would solve the "net neutrality" debacle, permanently, and in the perfect way. This is why neither side will get it right, especially now that it's come into view of people who blather about politics (Cher? seriously?).

Nobody cares about the final mile - its about transite across other people's networks.

The left is smart. Net Neutrality isn't. Affordable Care isn't. But just the name implies somthing it's not, and low information voters get up in arms over nothing.

My mind is sort of with Ragnar.. If someone gets to say that the data I want doesn't come to me at the same speed as everything else I worry.

The last mile is literally the only thing that matters.  Everything else is network operators having private negotiations with each other.

If, for example, IGcom Internet wants to bandwidth-choke NetFux unless they pay for peering, that's a private issue and the government has no damn business getting involved.

However, if IGcom Internet has a last-mile monopoly or is part of a last-mile duopoly ... now consumers in his service area don't have a choice.  This is where telecom regulation is useful.

Again, though, everyone is getting it wrong.  Conservatives are calling the Obama-era Net Neutrality "a government takeover of the Internet" and liberals are calling its repeal "favors to big Internet companies" without understanding what is actually going on.  So now nothing will ever get done because it's just a shouting fest.  At this point it's just "four legs good, two legs bad" partisan mentality.

The FCC has one legitimate job: keeping order to scarce resources such as last-mile plants and frequency spectrum.  Anything they do other than that is overreach.

But that's not really what's being argued here at all. So while you're technically correct, most of the regulations have NOTHING to do with final mile issues.

Meanwhile ... President Trump (peace be upon him) gave a speech on his new National Security Strategy that even has NeverTrumpers like Mark Levin praising it as "Reagan's third term."

Peace through strength, deny violent ideologies the space to take root, and burn 0bama's sacred cows.

Most importantly, the faux crisis of "climate change" has been unceremoniously removed from the list of national security threats.

Really, most of this stuff is just common sense.  Destroy the bad guys, support the good guys.  Assert our strength and demonstrate our military prowess so clearly that we don't have to use it.

Jihad bad, Western civilization good, AGW nonexistent.  Trump really is the next Reagan.

I read this today and loved it:

"If there shall be no taxation without representation, there should be no representation without taxation."

Meaning, people who pay zero in taxes should not be allowed to vote. This would, of course, stop the Tytler Cycle dead in its tracks.

Trump should order the Justice Department to have Rosie ObDonnell arrested and tried with attempted bribery of a government official.

That would put an end to the Trump / Rosie feud.

Someone suggested that Rosie getting convicted for bribery of a government official and then Trump pardoning her (for the lulz) would truly make her head explode.

Unless he had already stopped using the coffee maker a long time ago

because the company has committed other atrocities, and by destroying

it instead of giving it away, he made sure that no one else would be
subsidizing communism by purchasing coffee pods for it.

...and a brand new Keurig K55 arrived in the mail this week. Sean Hannity made good on his promise to replace the machines that his fans destroyed in protest.

Hannity has forgiven Keurig, but I haven't. Not only have they NOT resumed advertising on his show, but this whole thing was a small part of the large and well-orchestrated smear campaign against Roy Moore, and as we know now, the swamp was successful in stealing the Alabama election, so ...

There's only one question left in my mind:

* Bring the unopened box to Bed Bath and Beyond for a $107.99 cash refund?


* Do an unboxing-and-smashing video?

It seems it wasn't too long ago the democrats thought that having a billionaire celebrity running for president was the wrong thing to do.

I am sure she will lead the country with the same efficiency she ran the The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls.

You have way too many Hitlers.  I suggest a fiery purge.
