    Hard Starboard Radio: The Horror Of Bipartisan Consensus

    in Politics Conservative

    "Kickoff is a touchback.  First play, Russell Wilson throws a dime to Marshawn Lynch on the left sideline, just over midfield.  A couple of incompletions later, he throws another to Jermaine Kearse at the ten yard line that doinks off of every part of his body without his losing his concentration and falls into his hands.  Two Lynch runs and the ball is on the one yard line.  Bill Belichick calls his first timeout in anticipation of having to mount a last-ditch field goal drive.  Second and goal.

    And then what my cousin on Facebook called "Dumbest call ever - why didn't Wilson override it?....this is historic bonehead and will be remembered as long as the Super Bowl is played....The best one-yard back in football and three tries" - and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell calls a pass".

    Why Obama needs to pretend the Taliban aren't jihadists; The Left realizes too late that political correctness is a virus - an now it's eating their movement from within; Scott Walker rejects the "go along to get along" premise, and not a moment too soon; which is precisely why Democrats will not cease in their attempts to destroy him; and imagine an America where the White House and Congress got along — and all the terrible things they would do to us.

    Don't Forget Politics in Your Muni Broadband Marketing Plan.

    in Internet

    Developing relationships with elected officials and city government staff is critical to any muni network marketing plan, both locally and at the state level. For many communities, public networks are bipartisan efforts. At the state level, however, getting both sides of the aisle to come together behind these networks produces mixed results.

    The city of Sandy Oregon has a very stellar relationship between City staff, elected officials and constituents. City IT Director Joe Knapp and Sandy Council President Jeremy Peitzold tell us what works for them while offering other communities some perspectives to consider.

    how do city staff and city council form consensus defining the goals, getting funding and planning marketing;
    everybody wants the network built in their area first, and but political tensions can build because somebody has to be last;
    what do you do when one or two opponents of the network are one city council;
    is public networks’ role in economic development the key to legislative good will.
