Nuanced Arguments: The Internet & Immigration

Alaska Senator Ted Stevens and Atlanta blogger Daily Dose of Dave both have something in common, a wealth of knowledge on topics of interest to them.  Read and learn, about the Internet from Ted and immigrants from Dave.

"I just the other day got, an internet was sent by my staff at 10 o'clock in the morning on Friday and I just got it yesterday. Why?

Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the internet commercially...

...the internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck.

It's a series of tubes.

And if you don't understand those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and it's going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material."

Read more of the senator's comments at 27B Stroke 6 or listen to this mp3 for the previous comments and his arguments against Network Neutrality.

"If I were to bludgeon to death an illegal immigrant, should I not be allowed to walk away scot-free? I mean, if they weren’t in this country illegally my bat would have not been able to hit them.

Don’t get me wrong… I’m not advocating the harm to illegals. I’m just trying to put all this stuff in perspective."

Dave has made persuasive arguments in the past about immigration issues and reform and in the post quoted above he continues to impress.

Thank you Ted for trying to keep the internet tubes free of clogs and thank you Dave for showing how sporting-goods and immigration security can be combined into one fun activity.

Thanks for the support! Of course, you did slightly misrepresent me by ignoring the premise for my argument. Whatevs... hopefully not everyone is as silly as you.
