Join the Fight for #NetNeutrality


The Fight has begun again to save #NetNeutrality. Our present government. [The Trump White House and all its cronies] (what a joke . they are the thieves in the night) they are trying to role back time and destroy the conclusive FCC determination in 2015 to proclaim protection of #NetNeutrality. And once again Trump is going after the destruction of another Obama initiative . this time #NetNeutrality . a protection which opens up the free use of the Internet by all . not just overstuffed conglomerates who want to rule the world with their greed and shut down the voices who want to expose the Truth of what is happening in the world. – j.kiley

The Open Internet rules put in place by the FCC in 2015 are based upon a solid legal framework that has been sustained by the courts. The FCC Net Neutrality rules effectively safeguard the open Internet as an engine of innovation and investment and as a global platform for free expression.

Net Neutrality is one of the most important free expression issues of our time because without Net Neutrality, ISPs would be able to charge content providers more to access the Internet or to reach other users, frustrating the free flow of information. Moreover, without Net Neutrality in force, ISPs would even be able to block content they don’t like, reject apps and content that compete with their own offerings, and arbitrarily discriminate against particular content providers by prioritizing certain Internet traffic over theirs. This is especially critical for smaller and noncommercial voices, who would be unable to pay a new ISP broadband toll for “fast lane” service. Relegating certain content to the backwaters of the Internet in second or third-tier status reduces the visibility and impact of important voices in the local, national, or global media mix.

Without the guiding principles of #NetNeutrality, it is entirely possible Twitter would not have come from a somewhat quirky experimental 140-character SMS service to where they are today, an international company with thousands of employees and a service that incorporates pictures, video, and live streaming and connects the world to every side of what’s happening.

July 12, 2017, is a Day of Action to Save Net Neutrality and we are joining other high tech companies and the netroots community to encourage people to let the FCC know their opinion. Join the conversation on Twitter by using the hashtag #NetNeutrality. If you would like to submit a comment for the record with the FCC, you can click this link and click on “Express” to get started. Express is under the heading ‘Proceedings’ . go to the far right . it’s lettering is in blue. Click and fill in what is necessary and write the message you want to send the FCC.

KEEP #NetNeutrality in place. Keep it safe.

Are There No Heroes?

It is important to stand up to tyranny. Those who choose the tyrant’s path are nothing more than cowards and bullies. No more. It is a more than appropriate message for all to heed. Times are changing. And change is not always a good thing. Only when change leads to better circumstances does it deserve to be brought forward to thrive. The US leaders are killing with their changes and must be stopped. Are there no heroes left to stand up to bullies who want nothing more than to destroy what is good and thriving. They must go now. They were never meant to have power. Their weakness will take over their minds and destruction will be their own. – j.kiley 2017
