Is there any way to truly be anonymous on the Internet? Its not that I have
any huge secrets or want to start any dumb conspiracy movements, its just a pet
peeve and the idea of being able to say what I want where ever I want appeals
to me in a big way?

Can anyone educate me on being completely anonymous and safe online or is
it no longer possible?

Honestly there is only 1 fail proof 100% way........

Don't use the internet.

I work with IT on a daily basis, there is no 100% safe.

This is what I thought. What little I have read about it was the only thing to do was buy a used notebook / tablet, only log on to wifi's at public places,
be sure to be off camera, and never tap a bank, utility or any other kind of log in / account that is attributed to you. I didn't know if there was a better
way or not - seems not.

For starters, stay away from facebook, et.al.
Your idea is as good as any I've heard.
Unless you are a super hacker, then maybe...

When we start asking questions like this they may as well have already taken our free speech from us. A better question might be, "how can I make myself better heard?"

Never login into anything and use a library computer
I Don't know how the librarys work where you are but where I live you have to have a library card and use that card to login to the PC so they would have a record of where you visted and what you did tied to your card. Not going all conspiracy theories but thats just the reality where I live.

You could always try Tor. (I haven't yet, but suspect at some point I will- or something similar.)

https://www.torproject.org/
TOR has its share of security problems, particularly with gateways at the perimeter of the TOR network where traffic is still vulnerable.
Also, anyone can volunteer their hardware/connection to act as a TOR bridge or relay... you can bet your life that many such volunteers are .gov agencies, U.S. and otherwise.

The closest thing to (legal) anonymous internet connectivity is someone else's connection... such as the free WiFi at public libraries, coffee shops, McDonald's, etc.
Assuming use of VPN's or SSL encrypted connections, the weak point them becomes the remote resource to which you're connecting.

Apps like Vistumbler (windoze) or Kismet (linux) can help you find open WiFi access points.
