Have you ever wondered what the “hipsters” at the SXSW Music and Media Conference in Austin, Texas thought about Net Neutrality? 

Answer: Steven Crowder finds out.

As a huge computer and social media geek, I believe Net Neutrality is one of the worst concepts jotted down on paper:

Net Neutrality is a proposed set of regulatory powers that would grant the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) the ability to control how Internet service providers (ISPs) package their services. Proponents argue that such rules are necessary to ensure that ISPs treat all data on the Internet equally and don’t slow or even restrict access to various websites and other parts of the Internet.

However well-intentioned, the practical effect will be to limit consumer choice and grant the federal government unprecedented power over the Internet, all in the name of fixing a problem that doesn’t exist in any meaningful way. Indeed, examples of the behavior that Net Neutrality will combat are few and far between.

As I have mentioned before on my blog,  David Harsanyi says it best: Why would we want a prehistoric bureaucracy overseeing one of the past century’s great improvements?

Remember when President Obama spoke to Hampton University graduates last week explaining that a 24/7 media environment and technology – such as iPods, iPads, Playstations, and Xboxes – can be a distraction? If you don’t, here you go:

Really Mr. President?… You’re attacking technology when you ran your campaign on being the ‘tech-savvy’ political candidate? You even went so far as to attack Sen. McCain (R-AZ) for not sending his own emails. Why couldn’t he? Because of the injuries he sustained from being tortured in the Vietnam War. I must say, that was pure class in itself.

Anyways, getting down to the funny picture… Since President Obama admitted that he doesn’t know how to use any of this technology, here’s what his Xbox controller would look like:

😆 It makes so much sense now!

Wonder what you would find if you frisked President Obama’s socialized health-care agenda?

Answer: It will likely destroy America’s amazing medical technology.

Warner Todd Huston – from Big Government – reports:

In 2008 Patrick Swayze was treated with an advanced medical tool called a “CyberKnife.” It helped add months to his life as he tried to beat the cancer that was consuming him. But, Swayze wasn’t the only American with the good fortune to have this highly advanced medical technology available to him. In fact, there are 100 such machines across the United States. From California, to Minnesota, to Illinois and Washington D.C. Americans currently have the luxury of these wonderful new devices.

Sadly, Britons are not so lucky. There are two CyberKnife machines in the Britain, but they aren’t going to do anyone in the country’s socialist healthcare system any good because despite how successful these machines are British authorities won’t allow them to be used on patients.

Despite that the Mount Vernon cancer hospital in London is part of the National Health Services, despite that they spent £3m to purchase the machine, and quite despite the praise the machines receive in the U.S. and throughout the world, British NHS authorities won’t let NHS doctors use the machine on their patients.

Sadly, these heartless, uncaring socialist healthcare officials are uninterested in helping the estimated 10,000 British patients a year that could benefit from use of the CyberKnife. And why is this? Why, it’s because the treatments are expensive, of course.

You see money is far, far more important to Britain’s socialist healthcare system then patients.

Interesting fact: The United States of America has 100 of the 150 “CyberKnife” machines world-wide, all available for anyone that needs them… At least that was the case, but that might change once Obama-Care is fully implemented in 5 to 10 years.

It is true that Obamacare does not provide for death panels in its legislation. But it doesn’t have to when its price control measures and rationing will eliminate the sort of life saving tools that technology will bring us, technology that Obama-Care will destroy.

Hmm… So who is excited for President Obama’s socialized health-care overhaul? Goodbye medical advancements and innovations! Hello ‘death panels’ and lower standards of living!
