Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio – and I – suggest that’s the way to go. Versus leftists who wish to regulate and tax the living daylight out of it.
The World Wide Web in the U.S. is arguably the least regulated sector – and almost unarguably the most successful. Coincidence? Unlikely. And because the Web is a free speech/free market Xanadu, the left is looking for any way possible to get the government’s hooks into it.
Via then Michigan Republican Rep. Pete Hoekstra’s tweet: “Shame! Shame! Capital Hill police working under strict orders to shut Capital down at 4:30 p.m. today. Speaker Pelosi wants this shut down now 16 minutes ago.”
The Republicans continued to speak to the gallery, which Pelosi could not shut down without going into special session, tweeting from the House floor to update the world: “Twitter posts have been a big part of driving this important news story 2 minutes ago from TwitterBerry”
“I just told the House chamber We the People can take back the Capitol with these new media tools by networking and shining sunlight everywhere 16 minutes ago from TwitterBerry”
Hashtags for Facebook too?
Why not? This amusing little dialogue explains what hashtagging is all about.
A Facebook user asks, “Are there any decent search engines any more that don’t cater to the PC madness and won’t track your every move? This is mind-boggling we’re actually having this conversation. Celebration of one of Christendom’s most holy days replaced by a Marxist, socialist’s 86th birthday. See ya, Google. You’re just like Obama. Worthless sell out. Don’t believe me? It’s true – check it out yourself.”
@Todd Starnes, host of Fox News and Commentary tweets, “So Google commemorates Cesar Chavez’s birthday – but not Easter.”
The “gay” little logo popping up all over Facebook has this person asking, “Is anyone else feeling harassed by the gay rights ‘equals’ logo? I see it everywhere: It fills my Facebook page, it is on the news, it is everywhere and I feel pounded by it.”
He continued, “This enormous red and pink ‘equals’ sign is strong and effective; it is also becoming a bully club as it appears everywhere, and those who bear it seem to want to beat us into submission. But when I log on to Facebook now, only one sign dominates: That red ‘equals’ sign is everywhere, hammering me. It is a particularly obnoxious sign and, to me, signals what the liberals always do, bully one into submission.”
Using Wi-Fi signals, a Silicon Valley software program called WiFiSlam recently purchased by Apple can determine your iPhone location within buildings. How will its application be used? Let’s say you’re in a shopping mall. Your iPhone will get “slammed” with advertising and social networking messages relevant to your location.
According to The Wall Street Journal, Apple shelled out $20 million smackers to own two-year-old WiFiSlam. Imagine other ways WiFiSlam can be used, by … oh, I don’t know … a tyrannical government bent on tracking your every move?
