Looks like Trump may have to unblock his social media critics soon. A Virginia district Judge recently ruled that politicians can’t block critics on social media, especially if their account is being used for political input and opinions. Since the president represents every US citizen he should not block his critics, according to the suit doing so violates their first amendment rights. However, off topic comments can be removed or blocked/hidden. An upcoming court case against Trump will rule specifically on whether Trump can block his critics, but this Virginia court ruling sets a precedent in favor of the first amendment and Trump’s critics.Read more

Either way consumers will need to pay more because corporations always increase prices when the cost for service increases. So if you like your Netflix and faster broadband expect to pay more. Net neutrality is not about free speech nor the first amendment, but cost control and government regulations. Remember, anytime government gets involved more regulations, control and expensive things usually come for the consumer.Read more

Thankfully this non story has disappeared from social media and the news headlines. I refrained from posting about it at the time, but have to admit it would have been wrong to reveal the identity of the individual who made the CNN-WWE meme. Reports indicate he is a teenager but regardless of age, his identity should never be revealed unless the post was an actual threat against the president or anyone else. Our right to free speech and freedom of expression must remain protected. The press has the protections of the first amendment, but this does not give them the right to reveal anonymous sources or other individuals simply because they disagree with what they say or believe.Read more
