This week’s "Who Cheesed Me Off"

No cute illustrations to go with this post, folks. Sorry. This post is one that I hope folks pay attention to.

Simply put…Don’t Let Congress Ruin the Internet
Right now Congress is pushing a law that would abandon the First Amendment of the Internet — a principle called “network neutrality” that preserves the free and open Internet. Congress needs to hear from you today or they will hand over control of what you do online to companies like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast.

Politicians are trading favors for campaign donations from these companies. They’re being wooed by people like AT&T’s CEO, who says “the Internet can’t be free.”

Legislation like this would affect everybody. It would affect how we do business, what we see, what we have access to. Simply put, sites like would seriously be hurt.

Go here:

Sign this petition to tell your elected representatives to protect Internet freedom now.
