Word on the street is that FCC Chair/former big telecom lobbyist Tom Wheeler has scrapped the "net neutrality" proposal which received millions of comments against it -- but will construct another "net neutrality" proposal which would still let the big broadband corporations cut deals with other corporations and would still create fast and slow lanes for internet service, with all the big corporate content in the fast lane and all the good stuff in the slow lane. Big corporations like to say they foster innovation and freedom, but news flash: innovation and freedom only occur under a true net neutrality regime, where the service provider has to treat all files equally. A net neutrality regime fosters innovation, because innovation only happens from the bottom up -- big corporations don't embrace innovation until it's become the status quo. And freedom only happens under a net neutrality regime, because folks are only free when they, and not some corporation, get to pick where they go on the internet. Hence Free Press helps you tell the FCC, again, to protect net neutrality for real.
Finally, today is Election Day, which, for the "liberal" media, is the day Republican voters turn out in droves and Democratic voters stay home in droves. That may be true, or it may not, but the "liberal" media ain't the boss of us; no matter what they say, voters win elections, and if you vote, you confound the "wisdom" of the "liberal" media. So if you have any problems voting today, or see anyone having problems voting today -- and said problems may include, but are not limited to, finding the polling place, voter intimidation, accessibility issues, voting machine problems, and provisional ballot issues -- the number to call, as usual, is 1.866.OUR.VOTE, or 1.866.687.8683. Remember that this is our government, no matter how little it may resemble a good government at any given time, and we have a duty as citizens to make it a good government, first on Election Day and then on every day thereafter. Certainly don't stay home because of negative campaigning. Don't you know that's why they make negative campaign ads -- to frustrate decent folks into throwing up their hands and staying home? Now that you know, don't let it happen to you, or to someone you love.
