John Shimkus Works Against The People

The latest scuttlebutt is about Net Neutrality (e.g., all Internet traffic should be delivered at the same rate -- regardless of who sent it). John Shimkus (IL-19) is naturally against this and for AT&T becoming the monopoly. Corporations pay well for his services, and he does not disappoint. It is so typical of someone so firmly committed to the survival of the fittest. Soapblox/Chicago has a post on this issue.

Obviously, Rep. Shimkus would not have done well if he had attended Concordia Seminary instead of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. As a regular on the "other" Dean's List at West Point, he is lucky to have graduated at all. As a congressman, he does not incorporate the values of his faith in his legislative ethics. His activities during his tenure in Congress have not met the human physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of those who are suffering. He has proven that he is in Congress to serve the corporations rather than serve people in their need. To the nations, races, and people who have come to truly know him, there is no mistake. He is not a person of good reputation.

The reasons to vote him out of office in November continue to increase. Dan Stover is the better choice.

Right on as usual PF. Corporations have the best congress their money can buy. As for the rest of us, we can pay for high speed and get dial up service.
