Save the Date to Save Net Neutrality
Your internet connection might slow down after December 14th.
On that day, the FCC will vote on Ajit Pai’s proposal to reverse Title II in the Communication Act. Title II ensures that the government monitors all ISPs, so they cannot throttle your connection or charge you more money. If Ajit Pai’s plan passes, then internet providers will be able to block or slow down whatever websites they choose.
This could potentially cause a lot of websites to lose traffic and revenue, and it changes the freedom of the internet.
Since only five people on the FCC can vote (and there’s a good chance that the three Republicans will vote for Pai’s plan), it’s up to the public to stop it. We protested for net neutrality back in July, and now we’ll do it again.

Internet censorship is growing around the world, and it’s happening in America too. Ajit Pai, the chairman of the FCC, wants to change the law and give internet providers freedom over what they offer, basically taking away our net neutrality.
Thank you Sophia for bringing this to my attention. 🙂
December 14th is coming soon, so it’s time to take action for Net Neutrality.
July 12th: Internet-Wide Day of Action to Save Net Neutrality
The FCC wants to destroy net neutrality and give big cable companies control over what we see and do online. If they get their way, they’ll allow widespread throttling, blocking, censorship, and extra fees. On July 12th, the Internet will come together to stop them.

Protect the Internet from these corporations that want to control and change how we use the Internet. 😡
Today is the day to make a stand for Net Neutrality. 🙂
Indigenous Peoples’ Day Gains Momentum As A Replacement For Columbus Day
As someone with Native American blood, I think having the Indigenous Peoples Day is the only way we can make people aware of the atrocities committed by Christopher Columbus.
The idea of celebrating Columbus day after all he did to the Tainos indigenous people of the Caribbean is repugnant. 😡
Movement To Rename ‘Columbus Day’ To ‘Indigenous People’s Day’ Gains Momentum
It’s amazing how many actors have connection between Star Trek and Batman. 😯

I always thought that green girl in Star Trek: TOS looked like Batgirl in the 60s Batman! 😛
Batman and Star Trek are two of the most-lasting entertainment franchises, successful in television, film, comics, books, video games, Halloween costumes, novelty records, you name it.
