Welcome to the Coatesville Dems Blog

Public Corruption in Chester County, PA

I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

Are Comcast and Verizon "ending Net Neutrality” to preserve a dying cable TV business model?

South Korea to spend $1.5 billion on 5G 'movie-in-a-second' service

5G technology will allow users to download a 800-megabyte movie file in one second, compared with 40 seconds using 4G, the science ministry said, adding that such speeds would help South Korean firms win overseas deals. 

Officials said the new service would also mean people on bullet trains running faster than 500 kilometres (310 miles) an hour would even be able to access the Internet, compared with 300 kph currently. 

"Bullet trains around the world keep getting faster, with so .. 


Are Comcast and Verizon putting U.S. technology in reverse to preserve a dying cable TV business model?

Are Comcast and Verizon creating a higher price point to viewers to watch content on companies like Netflix to preserve their dying cable TV business model?

Congress can make an open neutral internet again

The real question is does Congress and the Courts represent people or giant corporations that pay them to play. 

Or you could say that Congress and the Courts extort money and gifts from both sides. 

A bill doesn't need to pass for Congressmen to rake in money from it:

Congressional aide to Comcast:
 "The Congressman can support this bill to make the Internet neutral again." Next a giant sized contribution appears from Comcast or an even larger laundered contribution by a "non-profit".

Congressional aide to Netflix:
"The Congressman can support this bill to make the internet neutral again." Next a giant sized contribution appears from Netflix or an even larger laundered contribution by a "non-profit".

“But the true threat to HBO and the cable business model is that NetFlix can transcend the television itself, offering you shows on all your devices. HBO has been slow to make its HBO Go app available to viewers who don’t subscribe to its television channel, and on the whole, the cable TV industry still depends on people putting their butts on couches in front of giant flatscreens.

Users, Not Just Viewers

Meanwhile, Netflix charges eight bucks a month to watch anything, anytime, anywhere, painlessly. Until recently, NetFlix still seemed like a supplement to the rest of TV, especially given its sometimes spotty offerings. But its original content upended that calculus, especially because it showed a willingness and ability to make shows whose quality rivaled anything on cable."
