Sign the Petition: https://secure.freepress.net/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=305

Buried deep in President Barack Obama's economic stimulus package is a line that should bring a smile to your face.
It says that billions of dollars must be spent to connect Americans to Internet services that meet "nondiscrimination and network interconnection obligations."

What does that mean? It means that we have won a key battle in our fight for Net Neutrality. The government must now demand that this money -- your money -- is spent the right way: on projects that abide by Net Neutrality principles.

But get this: Just as Washington is deciding to spend your tax dollars to connect millions of people to an open Internet, high-priced phone and cable company lobbyists are swooping in to change the rules, scrap the Net Neutrality requirements and stamp out consumer choice.

Tell Washington: Don’t Listen to the Lobbyists. Use Our Money for an Open Internet.

The agencies in charge of spending your money on broadband are convening public meetings to hear ideas from ordinary people. But the first meeting, held last week in Washington, was "packed to the rafters" with industry lobbyists. They created such noise at the event that public voices are in danger of being drowned out.

The final meeting is next week, on March 24. Please join thousands of other Net Neutrality supporters and sign the petition. Free Press will deliver your petitions in person at the final meeting. We promise to let our public officials know that Americans are counting on them to make sure our money only goes to build open, neutral Internet projects.

The petition says: "Under no circumstances should we use taxpayer money to fund high-speed Internet projects that aren’t open and neutral. This is our money, and it should be used to build a better Internet for everyone."
After you add your name, please forward this petition to friends and family to make sure we're heard.
We’ve proven that Washington can’t ignore us when we take action together. We have only one week to deliver this message, so please act now.

Thank you,

Supporting net neutrality is supporting the free internet we know today. To support it is to stand against corporate and political control of the internet.

Ummm.... I could see where net neutrality is a good thing... but I can also see where it's a bad thing.

Still, people are responsible for their own integrity, no the government, which is why I'm going to go with net neutrality.

HOWEVER, that doesn't mean I'm against the FBI searching "terrorist plans to bomb the whitehouse" in google now and then.

I also read on a Green Peace site that nuclear power plants were bad because terrrrrrrists might fly planes into them...

I'm a strong supporter of net neutrality, but I don't subscribe to propaganda.

I have no doubt that net neutrality is better than restrictions. With power comes corruption.

Propaganda wrote:
The nation's largest telephone and cable companies -- including AT&T, Verizon, Comcast and Time Warner -- want to be Internet gatekeepers, deciding which Web sites go fast or slow and which won't load at all.

They want to tax content providers to guarantee speedy delivery of their data. They want to discriminate in favor of their own search engines, Internet phone services, and streaming video -- while slowing down or blocking their competitors.

These companies have a new vision for the Internet. Instead of an even playing field, they want to reserve express lanes for their own content and services -- or those from big corporations that can afford the steep tolls -- and leave the rest of us on a winding dirt road.

The big phone and cable companies are spending hundreds of millions of dollars lobbying Congress and the Federal Communications Commission to gut Net Neutrality, putting the future of the Internet at risk.

AND THEN... THE CORPORATE MONSTER ARE GOING TO COME AFTER YOU!!! THEIR GREATEST DESIRE IS TO RESTRICT ACCESS TO CAKE, AND MONETIZE SEXUAL INTERCOURSE!!!

Most likely, the terrorists will be Greenpeace fanatics, or worse.

You want to see some REAL funny propaganda? Go look up the Revolutionary Communist Party of America.
