Standing Up for Net Neutrality

If you're interested in protecting internet neutrality, as I know many bloggers are, check out this bill introduced today by Congressman Edward Markey, D, Mass.

You can visit this site if you'd like to contact your state's representatives to inform them of your support.

(Okay, I know-- more politics. But at least this is INTERNET politics. People who read blogs LIKE to talk about internet politics, right? And anyway you have no idea how much I am fighting my impulse right now to rant about another bill that just got passed-- the new FISA bill aka the "Let's grant people and corporations who violate the Constitution by spying on the communications of innocent U.S. citizens without warrants immunity from prosecution and civil suits" bill aka the "Heck, we've already tossed out habeus corpus and freedom from cruel and and usual punishment, so, hey, while we're at it, we might as well just burn the Bill of Rights" bill.)

(Oops. Did I just write about that FISA bill?)


[Edited to clarify: the FISA bill passed in the Senate, but still hasn't passed in the House, so there is still time to fight it if you are interested.]

I love the politics posts. Politics are so darn interesting this year! You've sold me on Obama. I hope he wins it, and it certainly seems to be headed that direction.

And that FISA bill is digusting.

Okay, how about this: informal poll.

How many regular readers want me to talk about politics? How many want me to stop talking about politics? Show of hands?

I read all the time and I think everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Besides, this is YOUR blog. I enjoy whatever you put on it.

I enjoy the discussion! I think it is wonderful to have a political discussion where I do not feel the blog owner is being condescending to the opposing view.

More Politics PLEASE!
