The Media’s New Peep Show

Several in the New Hampshire dead tree press, and their digital protrusions, are jumping on the latest trend in information sharing (or lack of it, actually), the registration wall. The registration wall is similar to the pay-wall except that you can receive limited access (or metered) content for free, but only up to a point. It’s the velvet rope that leads to another velvet rope from which you can see through the open door, but no more.

Is there a Glass Debt Ceiling?

A Non-partisan organization devoted to social, economic, and political justice? Too bad that’s just not possible. There are no right wing groups seeking these ethereal ends. These are buzz-words, Orwellian constructs, created by statist agenda-driven socialists to mislead people. So the NHCA couldn’t be “non-partisan” if they tried. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Just look at who they associate with and what they support.

If You Are Not Following Me On Twitter….

Twitter inspires the opportunity to aggravate the leftists who insist on following conservatives there. Not every witticism will fit on Twitter. Sometimes you have to write a blog and post a link. And then there are the thoughts that are too short to blog and too long to tweet. (Some things can’t be said in under 140 characters.)
