DIANNY RANTS: The Wrong Week


Less than 24-hours after launching this new website, three people on the FCC voted to seize control of the Internet on behalf of the Obama Administration.

Three unelected, mostly unknown bureaucrats in a nation of over three hundred million citizens just gobbled up the last remnant of completely free speech and put it into the hands of the Federal Government — and not the entire Federal Government, just the Executive Branch.

This morning, while continuing to put the finishing touches on the Patriot Retort (the DIANNY Image Vault is taking some time to compile), I thought of the Lloyd Bridges character from the movie Airplane! who, every time something bad happens, says, “Looks like I picked the wrong week to ___fill-in-the-blank____.”

Looks like I picked the wrong week to launch a new conservative website.

Now, I realize that there are some starry-eyed folks out there that believe in their heart of hearts that the FCC swallowing the Internet whole will create a totally free and cheap, high-speed, totally open Internet where the broadband is powered by unicorn farts and streaming movies from Netflix will cost practically nothing and be faster than a speeding, now-banned bullet.

Honey, if you thought ISPs were gouging you, just wait until the Federal Government takes the reins.

Nothing the Federal Government does ever works the way they claim.


We’re talking about the entity that made famous the five hundred dollar toilet seat and phony waiting lists at the VA where American veterans languished until they died.

Everything they do costs far more than they said it would. Which means, you will end up having to pay more and more and more to make up for the fact that you happily surrendered the Internet to a massive, inefficient blob that moves with the speed and agility of a glacier.


All I can say to you morons is, get used to the word “Buffering.”

Dude Buffering

It’s probably a good thing you can’t find a full time job. Because you’re going to need that added free time to wait for your new, Government-controlled, fast-as-a-flying-unicorn Internet feed.

Now, it isn’t so much that I’m calling you the-Government-needs-to-rein-in-those-greedy-ISPs!!! crowd ignorant. It’s just that you know so many things that aren’t so.

The objective behind this unprecedented and unauthorized Liberty grab was never to make the Internet more “affordable” or “accessible.”

It’s about power and control.

How do I know?

Because. They. Are. LIBERALS.

Liberals don’t give a damn about you and your monthly Netflix fee.

Liberals don’t give a damn about your broadband access.

Liberals care only about power and control.

Why do they hate Fox News? Is it because it is Faux news as you “Yay Net Neutrality” crowd think?

No. They despise Fox News because more Americans watch it and the Liberals cannot control it.

Liberals are not about the free-flow of ideas and speech. They never have been. They are, at their core, lovers of tyranny. Our Bill of Rights is standing in their way. Free speech, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly, protections against illegal searches and seizures, the right to own a gun (and the bullets used in it). These things are obstacles.

And let’s face it. They were designed to be obstacles. Our Founders knew that if left unchecked, the Federal Government would become too powerful. The Bill of Rights are there to ensure our Liberties from a grubby, grabbing, power-hungry Leviathan.

Which is precisely why Liberals do everything they can to bypass, ignore and defy our rights.

Taking over the Internet is just the sort of underhanded, tyrannical move Liberals are famous for.

And trust me on this one. Their idea of an “Information Superhighway” is a one-way street with roadblocks, speed bumps and potholes the size of craters.

And on this one-way street, only the Liberal viewpoint is permitted. They will do everything and anything to shut down opposing voices because it is about power and control. Control of information. Control of the narrative.

Look at how the Obama Administration went after conservative groups. They used the IRS and the Justice Department to harass and silence them.

Look at how this idiot President declares in speech after speech that you have to stop listening to Rush Limbaugh or conservative talk radio or Fox News.

Do you really think he isn’t going to make the most of the opportunity the FCC just handed him on a silver platter to shut up the voices he so desperately wants to keep us from hearing?

These people aren’t seizing control of the Internet so you iPad-using techies can have super-fast speeds for pocket change any more than they seized control of the healthcare industry to provide super-cheap, super-high-quality medical care for all Americans.

Honestly, it has gotten to the point where I am convinced that there are people in this country who would support and defend Barack Obama even if he came to their house, murdered their family, burned the place to the ground and pissed on the ashes.

Or is it that you don’t care that the freest form of speech has just been muzzled because the only people who will be silenced are people you disagree with?

Yeah. That’ll end well, won’t it?

In the immortal words of pastor Martin Niemöller:
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

How long before the people this Administration seeks to silence are you?

But hey.

As long as those rotten ISPs get screwed, who cares about the free speech of a bunch of icky Rightwingers?

So. Have I picked the wrong week to launch the Patriot Retort?

Maybe. But, I don’t know. Call me ornery. But I look forward to fighting back against these bastards with every fiber of my being.

    The only way they can make people listen to them is to take everything else off the air.

    So, we can blame it all on you, eh? 😉

    Our government solved a problem with the internet that doesn’t even exist. But it will magically manifest itself now that they have their claws dug into it. We will now have more people involved in the internet process. The more people it takes to do something does not equal cheaper prices for a product in the real world. The IRS, another government entity, silenced the voices of many conservatives that didn’t realize that the liberals know what’s best for all of us. Or at least some suspect they did. Our government is still investigating that to see if it really happened or not. They’ll let us know in another 20 years or so, maybe.
    The last place we could voice our true opinions on anything and share it anywhere we pleased was the internet and now they have control of it. Get ready to see “You have been banned from the Internet” on your computer screens.
