Hey all, so last week in a flagrant act of corruption and just being plain assholes, the FCC voted along party lines to dismantle Net Neutrality. Normally I tend to refrain from Politics in my posts, but this is such a blatant act of corruption in the United States government that I felt I had to speak up.

First off, if you haven’t read my previous post on Net Neutrality use the link above to do so. This post will wait while you read it. Back? Great.

Here’s what you can do other than riot in the streets and/or create graphic and obscene graffiti featuring Ajit Pai: Call your Members of Congress. Frankly we just had an amazing week last week with Democrat Douglas Jones winning in the historically Republican state of Alabama. The reason that’s significant, other than preventing a known sexual predator from taking public office, is that it proves that people can truly make a difference if you speak up. So raise a riot, metaphorically speaking.  I won’t advocate for an actual riot, although at this point it might be justifiable.

Other things you can do is call candidates who are running for office in 2018 and tell them you won’t vote for them if they won’t make Net Neutrality a central issue. Finally call your State Attorney General and ask for them to join other AGs in their lawsuit against the FCC for this flagrant act against the public interest.

I won’t be able to continue writing daily blog posts if this causes changes in my internet plan. So if you enjoy my work and pretty much anything on the internet, you need to be making a ruckus about this. This isn’t a joke, get out there and start banging on doors if you feel you can get others to listen to you on this. Again I won’t advocate rioting in the streets, however justified it may be. But get your voice heard and tell the FCC and Telecom Companies you won’t put up with their bullshit.
