I remember when I first warned about the FCC's talks about regulating the internet. I took more heat for my position on that issue than any other issue we've discussed. I, of course, warned everyone that this was not, as the FCC suggested, an effort to "keep the internet free" but rather was a massive power grab by the government to regulate an industry it had no business overseeing. Immediately they set about writing over 400 pages of new regulation, and they have now decided that if you're poor, you deserve to have your neighbor pay for a portion of your internet. Government is so predictable and man so gullible. I will never understand how my neighbors can so easily delegate their power as free people to an organization that has shown so often to act against the interest of those it claims to serve. From there we'll talk about the recent minimum wage hike in California and discuss some of the math small businesses will be forced to deal with over the next six years. This is a great episode chalked full of great tidbits you can use in your discussions with friends and family. Don't forget to Subscribe!
