My friends-- even if you only use the net to look up recipes, check Facebook, read your email, find a new knitting pattern, shop on Amazon.com... even if this is all you do...
They want to make you pay for all of those things, the way they make you pay for cable channels. They way they make you pay for early boarding on the plane. The way they make you pay for anything that is not the mediocre norm.


Fight the good fight! The Internet should be free! Do not allow them to tell you how much and what addresses you are allowed to surf.
DAMN THE MAN! FIGHT THE EMPIRE!
But in all seriousness... every penny counts now. If you still believe in free access to the amazing plethora of information on the web, without paying even more for the chance to access the sites each provider decides you are allowed to pay to access... THEN LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!
VOTE FOR NET NEUTRALITY! VOTE FOR YOUR RIGHT TO ACCESS ALL THE INFORMATION OUT THERE! NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO STIFLE ACCESS TO LEARNING, TO FACTS, TO HISTORY, TO ART, TO EVERYTHING!
PLEASE!! Stand up for Net Neutrality so there are more things to stand up for tomorrow.

CONGRATULATIONS everybody! We only have 5 days to fight the FCC & the repeal of #NetNeutrality! ⚡️
Thanks to John Oliver there's a SUPER easy way to do this
If net neutrality goes away, our Internet bills go up and we give power to companies like Comcast and Spectrum to limit our access to the internet and its content.
Here's what you can do - takes less than a minute.
1. Go to gofccyourself.com
(the shortcut John Oliver made to the hard-to-find FCC comment page)
2. Find the 17-108 link (Restoring Internet Freedom)
2. Click on "express" next to it.
3. Be sure to hit "ENTER" on your keyboard after you put in your name & info so it registers.
4. In the comment section write, "I strongly support net neutrality backed by Title 2 oversight of ISPs."
5. Click to submit, done. - Make sure you hit submit at the end!
**Copy and paste this into your own status update!**
If you don't think Net Neutrality is a big deal, just look at the lobbyists and corporations in support of abolishing it. If you think your ISP has your best interests at heart, do nothing. If, however, the Internet should be open and free from outside influence and tampering, take the roughly 60 seconds required to express your opinion to the FCC!
