Proviso Probe

Friday, June 09, 2006

OPEN, what's on your mind?

Later I hope to write about Net Neutrality. And the meeting of the Proviso Democratic Organization.

What's local and important to you?


  • I don't like Net Neutrality. Keep the government out of the Internet.

  • Blakstar, Net Neutrality keeps the government and telecoms from giving preferential treatment to certain websites.

    If you like the way the Internet has worked, you like Net Neutrality. The new system that is being passed into law was made possible by the FCC no longer setting Net Neutrality as the standard.

  • Net Neurtrality is government stifling the internet. At the worst it boils down to government vs. telecoms deciding on preferential treatment, and all I know is that the telecoms can't imprison me.

  • Hey carl, I watched the Maywood board meeting tonight and I gotta tell you that woman Cheryl Washington that use to be a trustee has gone bananas! She was talking about the finance director that he's not qualified. (whatever that means) But, boy does she look demented and is she stupid or what? I remember when she supported this gup when he ran for office. She put a sign in my yard for him. What happened? Did he stop servicing her or what?

  • There's a raging battle going on right now for the future of the Middle East and one man is doing his dead-level best to undermine our security needs and objectives in this volatile region.
    What is most scary of all is that man will cost American lives as a result of his foolish and dangerous actions.

    Yes, that one man is Jimmy Carter, and it's time to stop him.

    Specifically, the Congress of the United States (as the people's representative) must issue a resolution of censure against Jimmy Carter.

    Hurting America over and over

    More than 25 years after we thought we had relegated him to slinging a hammer and nail for poor people, he's back, meddling in international affairs.

    Jimmy Carter has become increasingly consumed with vengeful determination to hurt this administration while it is trying to bring stability to some of the most critical regions around the globe.

    Pathologically, Carter has set out to prove us all wrong by siding with America's enemies to show it is the United States that stands in the way of world peace.

    It's infuriating enough to watch the one time peanut farmer from Plains, Ga., propping up anti-American dictators like Venezuela's hugo chavez, North Korea's kim sung Il, or Cuba's fidel castro.

    But what scares the hell out of most of us who see the world as it really is and not as we wish it to be is Carter's efforts to take away the tools we need to fight against Islamic terrorism, which poses a real threat to American security at home. See the movie, "United 93," in case you forgot about 9-11.
    Former President Jimmy Carter has made headlines recently with his blame-Israel-first rhetoric. Carter has made it his personal mission to side with the proponents of radical Islam over U.S. and Israeli interests time and time again.Talk about explosive situations,Jimmy Carter hasn’t met a terrorist bomber that he didn’t defend.
    In response to Saddam Hussein’s boasting that he paid families of Palestinian suicide bombers $25,000, Carter fought to “lift the U.N. sanctions imposed on Iraq.”
    Jimmy Carter’s presidential legacy, when his administration’s “impotent, do-nothing policy in response to Islamic fundamentalist crisis in Iran...led directly to waves of revolutionary fervor and ended in a 444-day Iranian hostage crisis.”
    When Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini issued a $3 million bounty for the head of British writer Salman Rushdie because of Rushdie’s critical account of Islam, “The Satanic Verses,” Carter responded with a New York Times op-ed, claiming, “Rushdie’s First Amendment Freedoms are Important,” but “it is a direct insult to those millions of Moslems whose sacred beliefs have been violated....”
    Following the death of Yasser Arafat, Carter praised the leader of the PLO as “A powerful human symbol and forceful advocate,” adding, “while he provided indispensable leadership in a revolutionary movement and was instrumental in forging a peace agreement with Israel in 1993, he was excluded from the negotiating role in more recent years.”
    A organized group, the Censure Carter Committee calls upon Congress to put on record that Jimmy Carter does not represent American foreign policy interests. We are currently collecting signatures on a petition to censure Jimmy Carter before he does further harm to American national security interests.
    Read more at CensureCarter.com, and sign the petition there.

    By Anonymous Carter is a moron, at 3:53 PM, June 11, 2006  

  • I doubt the person who wants Carter censured is a local.

    This is just a Republican attempt to change the subject from the messes Bush has made in Iraq and Afghanistan to something else.

    You can agree or disagree with Jimmy Carter on specific policies. In the real world--as opposed to the black and white world created by Republicans--policy decisions have trade offs. Rarely is there a good policy with no costs or downsides.

    But Carter's intent is to promote peace and a better world. The intent of the Bush coalition is to consolidate wealth and power for Bush supporters.

  • After looking through the sitemeter log it seems that the guy that wants to censure Carter is posting from Washington, DC and is using the Dept of Veterans Affairs computer.

  • I wrote about Net Neutrality tonight because I spent the day taking advantage of the open internet, YearlyKos, Al Gore and John Dean and the ACLU case on NSA spying all from my office with Democat at my side. Without net neutrality, I'd be stuck on the Disney site for sure.

  • Hey Carl, can we do something similar in Proviso and censure Don Sloan and Welch?
    Also today was the final show for Sloan on the radio.There show is officially off the air,due to lack of interest,no sponsers and lack of listeners.Sloan annouced today that he was not going to run anymore for township office,and that he was planning to retire from Proviso Polititcs. He stated that he will work the next three years to expose the evil oppostion against him and his friends.
    He also stated he will focus on working politiccally in Westchester with his new best friends the Mayor of the town and the Luciano family.

  • On June 5th, Shaun Davis, a Proviso East Alumni, was brutally killed at the Boy's and Girl's club of Bellwood.

    The investigation is on going and there are no suspects in custody.

    If anyone has any information can you please contact the Bellwood Police department.


    Can you dedicate a posting to my friend of 25 years. This was a senseless killing and should be addressed.

  • Is there a news article I can link to about Shuan Davis?

    By Blogger Carl Nyberg, at 12:34 PM, June 21, 2006  

  • Carl,

    I'm really not sure but I think there was an article about this incident in the Daily Herald. I have the paper at home. I'll know for sure by tomorrow. I'll keep you posted.

    Unfortunately, it made that days evening news.

    I will forward you as much information as possible.

  • Carl,

    The article regarding Shaun Davis ran on the front page of the Daily Herald (Dupage County) on June 6th titled "Shooting Victim A Peacemaker A Family Says".

    I would supply the link, but their website (www.dailyherald.com)archives only allows you to access articles run in the last 7 days.

    I hope this helps...

    Thanks and all the best
