Today’s cliché lesson of the day: Everything is better with bacon.
Shrimp, bacon, celery, broccoli, asparagus, spinach, basil, sea salt, red pepper.
Tying a little bit better to the concept of my previous post, I present you with a link to a useful* tool called Geocities-izer (*useful = fun). You can get some cheap laughs at the expense of the practices of a time past. You can make anything look old! Especially fun to toy with news sites like CNN, New York Post, MSNBC, or you can even make Drudge Report… -oh wait…
Do you wish to remember the old days of the World Wide Web?
Websites had to start somewhere, even big names like Amazon, Google, and MySpace. Ah, should we embrace the rich history or sweep it under the rug? A timeless question.

It’s time to take away the state’s power to give orders to the internet service providers. No business should have to be an unpaid law enforcement agency. I know internet service providers get in bed with the state, and shame on them for not speaking up against those thugs.
Do you really want to see the government have even more of a stranglehold on this industry? Do you want an arbitrary group of people calling themselves “the state” to tell you not to do business with certain people (such as advertising with them) and then threaten to throw people in a cage if they don’t go along with it? Remember that all political power comes from the barrel of a gun. All laws are backed up by threats of violence. It may take a while, but they will come after people with guns if those people don’t do what they want them to do.
This just once more shows that the purpose of the state is to create a “protection racket” for big business.
