Rep. Anthony Weiner [D-NY] Tries to Educate Republican Colleagues With Children's Book

Today Representative Anthony Weiner [D-NY] addressed the House with a lesson in government. During his time, Mr. Weiner tried to help his Republican colleagues by reading from a children's book on politics. "House Mouse Senate Mouse" by Cheryl Shaw Barnes Peter W. Barnes (which you can pick up a copy here at Amazon)

Perhaps an attempt to help Eric Cantor, since he still has yet publicly admitted to his error. But I am sure more Teabagger Republicans than just Eric Cantor need the lessons. I really hold Congressman Weiner in high regards. He continues to stand up for the working class Americans and he fights with passion and conviction. This Congressman has no trouble calling out the blatant hypocrisy of his Republican / Tea-Party colleagues. The other democrats ought to take notice and pay attention to this guy. I only wish he were here in my state, too bad their aren't more democrats like him.

You can watch Congressman Weiner's speech here at c-spanvideo.org. It's quite funny and only two minutes. A good watch!

Tried to Get Net Neutrality, Comcast said No, No, No.

Net Neutrality is a legislative proposal to keep the internet open and free from corporate greed. Opposition for net neutrality comes from fiscally conservative think tanks (Americans for Tax Reform and The Cato Institute) which suggest net neutrality may violate first amendment rights. The argument is that the First Amendment prohibits government from forcing owners of communication infrastructure to transmit information against their will. Large hardware companies, cable and other telecommunication companies (Verizon, Comcast, Time Warner,AT&T) are also opposed to net neutrality. Between 2006 and 2008 these mega corporations- along with Koch led Americans For Prosperity- lobbied $218 million to Representatives and gave $23.7 million in campaign contributions to oppose net neutrality.
