In the news again again – Net Neutrality – a subject I have blogged about prior here Net Neutrality.
Thank you to Odd time signatures for bringing this to my attention:
Don’t let it happen. Do you really want to go back to the days of “walled gardens” where you have access to some, but not all, of the Internet? Let your voice be your choice — go to savetheinternet com if you haven’t already and speak up for a free and accessible Internet without corporate interference. You will not be aligning yourself with a political party, but just agreeing to a straightforward statement of principles.
About 250,000 other petitioner signatures in favor the Markey Amendment collected by Free Press-led SaveTheInternet.com this week and delivered to Congress via Calif. Rep. Nancy Pelosi. The Markey Amendment says that telecommunication and cable giants like AT&T and Verizon that provide broadband access have the obligation “not to block, impair, degrade, discriminate against, or interfere with the ability of any person to use a broadband connection to access, use, send, receive, or offer lawful content, applications, or services over the internet”.
Supporters have sprung up all over the Internet – at MySpace.com and Askaninja.com. The effort has even united the most unlikely of political opponents including Gun Owners of America, Afro-Netizen, and Instapundit. Wow, now there is a wide variety of platforms.
From Mark Sneaking In The Back Door
While you’ve been away arguing about gas prices, the war against terrorism, the Katrina clean-up and so many other injustices to a free way of life, the Congressional community has almost completed it’s task of out-flanking your focus.
Don’t feel bad, I was almost snookered myself.
So, the very existence of the Internet as we know it today is under attack by – guess who? Big Money! This one doesn’t involve the oil companies, this is a step or so below that – telecommunications. Well, oh heck yeah, there’s a ton of money there eh? Enough to influence Congressmen! And that’s all they need to perpetrate new injustices on the sheep we’ve become in the fight against the fleecing of our freedoms!
Net Neutrality Clause Shot Down by Feds on The Internet Patrol
Well that is my contribution to the blogosphere today. I might shut down my computer system for awhile soon in order to redo my room to include a small work area to build my new model. Believe it or not – Kmilyun has found other things to do with herself. The weather is warm and my motorcycle is outside calling . .. sometimes real non digitalized contact can be a good thing. 🙂
