Net Neutrality is in Danger!

Revised: 12/14/2017

It’s a dark day for internet users. The vote was 3-2 to gut Net Neutrality. Who is running this country? 83% of American’s said this was not what they wanted! The Alabama Senate election was closer than that. Gesh. I hope everyone gets their binge watching in, as sites like Netflix, YouTube, Hulu and other viewing sites will become expensive.

What’s next after the controversial repeal of the rules that polls have shown are supported by a majority of Americans? The latest, a survey released by the University of Maryland this week, found that 83 percent of Americans do not approve of Pai’s plan to deregulate ISPs, including 3 out of 4 Republicans.

You know I’m not for big government, however Net Neutrality is a necessity!  Take a look at this hilarious video, if you’re not sure what net neutrality is or how it will effect your internet. The vote is December 14th. Contact your local government to stop this nonsense! You can send a message to the jerk that’s heading this revolting action here.

Cable Companies Don’t Give a F*ck!!

We have a battle of the internet going on. Two of the largest internet providers (Comcast & Time Warner) are trying to merge which would create a huge monopoly. When there are no other options, they would be free to charge website owners to pay for their site to be faster. It is neutral now (Net Neutrality), for the most part, however sites that stream content (like Amazon, Netflix, YouTube…) are charged higher rates. There are also dangers of our first amendment rights of free speech! Please be aware of your rights fellow bloggers, the freedom of the internet is taken for granted… This is a strong threat!!

This video contains vulgar language… =-) Bull-ya
