no more open internet :'( sad day in history

Post by InGearX » Sat Dec 02, 2017 9:43 pm

dear brothers and sisters

I am posting this on my FB and other social places - what could I add / change?
Ajit Pai, the current FCC chairman, used to be a top lawyer for Verizon is rushing forward with its planned vote to kill net neutrality [see r1 bellow on details] on December 14th

He’s made it clear that he doesn’t care what the public, small businesses, or tech experts say, he’s planning to vote to kill net neutrality in less than three weeks.

Congress can still stop him, but they’ll only do it if we can keep their phones ringing off the hook. Will you contact your lawmakers right now?

The backlash over the last few days has been incredible. Hundreds of thousands of you have taken action already and it seems like we filled every voicemail box on Capitol Hill!

P.S. Want to do more? There are more than 200 net neutrality protests planned across the country on December 7. Click here to find one near you!

see this Net Neutrality II Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

r1: net neutrality = anti monopoly, this will allow say Verizon to charge Netflix or Youtube a premium to deliver content faster (in the end paid by us - the consumers) - a premium that new startup providers will not be able to pay to compete...
please improve it and please share it

if not for your sake - for the sake of your children

thank you ...
