Ten thousand years of Roboshrub.

Fangs for the memories.




In today’s state, Roboshrub Incorporated is an entity entirely devoted
to the execution of what normal people would refer to as “bad ideas.”

It was the creator’s original idea that all concepts, whether
useful or not, contribute to the global subconscious level of progress
for the human race. Therefore, we contend that no idea is an unfit
idea, and vow to act on each and every one of them.

Saving Private Lions

Once again, it seems, the United States Legislature looks intent upon auctioning off our freedoms. Unless US constituents act, telecommunication companies will, in essence, gain the right to control and manipulate what people see on the internet. Goodbye, Net Neutrality.

Why do I bring this up?


Guess which part of this picture represents Net Neutrality.

Well, if you want to help (or just more information), go visit the Savetheinternet.com Coalition. Sign their petitions. Make a blog post. Make friends with them on MySpace. Buy a t-shirt.

I realize I've been "tag"'d. That can wait, though, as the first ammendment is more important. Also, Gyrobo spent the backup funding I was going to use to bribe Telcom into giving us a prime cyberspace location... so hurry! Sign the petition!

I'm more worried about the Internet being taxed. But Google has already began a censoring campaign against political groups.

I will never make friends with my legislature through MySpace!

But really, Net Neutrality is an important issue. I'm glad to see the kids today care so much about their government. It really makes me proud to be a robot.

Hmm, First Amendment vs. a meme. Hmmm. And you chose the First Amendment as more important? Hmmm. That is a toughie.

Gyrobo, I hope you don't mind me using your image and likeness on my blog today. If you are deeply troubled by it, I can replace it with a picture of Lily Tomlin or something.

Roosevelt's an image thief! Just look what he did to Fluoride!

And Bob Dole's in the tupperware. Such a dirty chicken.

Bob Dole thinks Bob Dole condemns that remark.
