My Conversation with Business Insider about Net Neutrality

Insights from a true “insider” …

Hey Mark,
A few things that stood out from your recent string of Tweets:
Yes, broadband speed and quality have gotten better. But it’s still behind the most of the developed world. We pay a lot more on average for slower speeds on average.
The overarching problem is that there is no competition among ISPs. They each have monopolies where they operate. That in turn gives them little incentive to provide better service, invest in infrastructure, and so on. In fact investment in those things have declined over the last four years.
Allowing ISPs to compete would be wonderful, but they’re not competing now. And the way the system is set up now, they won’t need to.
The unfortunate truth is that while Title II isn’t ideal, it’s the best and only option we have right now to ensure those monopolies continue to run away.

Think about it.

“Hey, anybody looking for a divorce attorney in Allen? This guy on the right could use one.”

Keys to Surviving Divorce


Going through a divorce can be a difficult time. Here are some tips to help you get the best result possible, while maintaining your sanity.

1.    Complete a thorough inventory of your assets and your needs

I Ignored the Signs and Stayed With You…But Now I Choose Me!

Jayne L. Brayer Attorney P.C

When was it obvious that the relationship was doomed?  So many say they wish they knew their spouse was a cheater (or alcoholic, gambler, controlling, abusive …).  Was it really a surprise?  Probably not. Be honest with yourself. When did you know?


  1. Was he checking his phone more often then you were comfortable with?
  2. Was she unreachable when you called, only to say she must have been in a spot with poor cell reception?
  3. Is your combined income good, yet money is unaccounted for?
  4. Do you feel you need to walk on eggshells around her?

Be honest with yourself. Most of us knew, or should have known when the relationship started to go bad. My suggestion, when you see something, say something!  Willful blindness could only prolong the inevitable and even make the situation worse. Isn’t it better to address your concerns early, before resentment rears it’s ugly…
