If true, that would be a pretty huge boom. The question is, why would Iran, a Shiite country at war with Sunni Islam harbor a Sunni terrorist group?...

They don't due to their hypocrisy, calling for less spending, smaller government, ect while voting for the opposite, grand-standing for social conservative issues, being authoritarian on civil liberties, pro war, and not offering a clear foil to the opposition.
Basically, the choice becomes "demo...

They are doing any and all. They are wanting to charge Netflix more because their service demands more bandwidth than most of the internet. They are selectively throttling the internet speeds of users who use more bandwidth (even if they are paying for it), and they want to be able to provide "a l...

I am for Net Neutrality, but I am not for net neutrality in the form that the FCC is going to give to us.
This could have been solved with a 1 page bill before Congress, heck, a 1 paragraph bill. But instead, we are going to give the draconian FCC complete control over content on the internet.

Like Jews, they do not believe in making any graven images or portrayals of their God nor are they allowed to do so for other Gods. The Islamic State is merely extending this rule to apply to graven images made in the past, much like how an earlier Muslim despot defaced the Sphinx in Egypt by cutti...
