Well then… The FCC asked for comments from the general public regarding net neutrality, and I sent them a letter. Here is their reply:
Thank you very much for contacting us about the ongoing Open Internet proceeding. We’re hoping to hear from as many people as possible about this critical issue, and so I’m very glad that we can include your thoughts and opinions.
I’m a strong supporter of the Open Internet, and I will fight to keep the internet open. Thanks again for sharing your views with me.

Tom Wheeler. The guy who use to be a lobbyist for Comcast. The guy who has consistently been working for the ISPs to let them do exactly what they wanted to do. And he has “always been a strong supporter of the Open Internet”?
There was another article not that long ago that said this same Tom Wheeler wanted to just give the ISPs their way, and if that didn’t work out, THEN they would finally reinstate net neutrality. That’s what they are calling the Open Internet. The ISPs idea of the Open Internet means they can do basically whatever they want.

There is light at the end of the tunnel, albeit a long way away. Vermont just became the first state to officially call for the Wolf PAC constitutional amendment to get money out of politics. Hopefully more states will follow soon.
Yep, saw that. I’ll be writing a post about that, and a few other things tonight.
