Marsha Blackburn on the state of the net

Tennessee Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn has been a proponent of internet freedom since before it became a hot topic. She pushed for recognition of the potential problems that can arise if progressives get their way with a heavily regulated internet.

Seven years ago, when many Republicans were learning how to set up a Twitter account, Blackburn was preparing conservatives for the fight they had coming. Our online rights were going to get attacked by the left and the Obama administration was well on its way towards making their vision of net neutrality a reality.

One particular moment of a speech she gave in 2011 stands out:

Conservatives must not let big government, regulation, or taxation limit the long term potential of the Creative Economy, as it has already done with the industrial sector.

Regulation hampers innovation. Taxation stunts growth. Big government suffocates all. These premises don’t just align in the real world. In the digital world, they are even more prevalent. Marsha Blackburn understands this. Make her a Senator, Tennessee.

Hey Kansas: If you get Les Miles, the funny quotes come free

Hey Kansas If you get Les Miles, the funny quotes come free

The Kansas Jayhawks have had a rough football season. They’ve had several rough football seasons. Today’s loss to the Oklahoma Sooners showed a spark of offense for a team that may not be as bad as their record indicates. They also got some good news on the coaching front.

Les Miles may be coming to Lawrence.

The coach that won a national championship with LSU and helped put Oklahoma State on the college football map may try to do the same for the Jayhawks if rumors turn out to be correct.

Beyond being a great coach, Miles has built a reputation for saying some of the funniest things to the press. Here’s one of my personal favorites:

“When I wake up in the morning and I turn that film on, it’s like reading a book and it’s exciting. I don’t read books, but if I read books it would be like reading a book.”

I do hope to see Miles coaching at KU. They need him. The Big 12 needs him. Football fans in general need him.

When gungrabbers like Eric Swalwell say they respect the 2nd Amendment, don’t believe them

When gungrabbers like Eric Swalwell say they respect the 2nd Amendment, don't believe them

It’s a lie. Every time, it’s a lie. Most leftist gungrabbers will add a note at the end of their gungrabbing rhetoric by pretending to respect the 2nd Amendment. They want you to think they’re pushing “common sense” gun control, because who doesn’t like common sense?

There isn’t a lick of common sense in any gun control measure. Anything that could have been considered common sense gun control, such as the Gun Control Act of 1968 that kept regulated interstate commerce to hamper mail-order gun purchases, have already been put in place. Anything going forward that appeals to common sense is unnecessary and damaging to the 2nd Amendment.

Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA) once said he respects the 2nd Amendment.

“I support gun safety measures, and I’ll tell you, I grew up in a family of gun owners and hunters, and I went hunting with my dad as a kid, and you know, I have deep respect for the Second Amendment and the culture of our country.”

His statements on Twitter yesterday said all we need to know.

Stacey Abrams doesn't concede in her non-concession speech

Republican Brian Kemp will be the next governor of Georgia. He defeated Democrat Stacey Abrams by receiving 50.2% of the vote, negating the possibility of a runoff election.

Abrams isn’t happy about it. She said today she’s unwilling to concede but acknowledged that Kemp would be certified as the winner. In a strange political doublespeak way, she fought back against a system that prevented her from rightfully winning.

Or something.

Bottom line: She lost. She, President Obama, and Oprah Winfrey failed to get her enough voters to win the election. Whether she actually concedes or not is irrelevant.
