I just saw this in Yahoo news. Verizon and AT&T have appealed to the government to charge websites to be paid to the internet provides. Those that pay get faster service than those that don't and those that don't may even get blocked!

This could damage the entire internet! It could even close many sites we know and love like Inward Quest.

Here is a link about it.

What could we do about it? Maybe boycott the internet but that seems counterproductive. What would they have done in the sixties, have some kind of protest march? We need to figure out how to go up against Verizon and AT&T to get them to stop picking on the people.

Well it was/is only a matter of time -- governments support & are supported by taxes.

Yes but how do we fight it though? I know we used to know how, now it seems we just cow down and let ourselves get ran over saying, "What can be done we just have to take it." Martin Luther King didn't cow down to to how things were.

You asked "Yes but how do we fight it though?"

You reside in the US, don't you?

Do you vote?

Have you ever contacted your legislatures in your state?

If I were you, I suggest you contact your legislatures, both in Congress & in the Senate & let them know about this & tell them what you think & why. Tell your friends to do the same. Make sure they understand how important this matter is to you & what your position is.

Make sure they know you are a registered voter & you do vote in every election.

Here is a link to find out who your US Senator is - click on their name & you will go directly to their website where you can leave a message. "They" will get back to you. Follow up again - as many times as necessary. If you see any discussion of this subject on tv or before the legislature, make you opinion known & your voice heard.

http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm?State=PA

You can use either of these 2 links to find your US congressional representative for your district. This link searches by name http://www.house.gov/

If you don't know who your representative is, you can search by zip code at this link or the above link.

http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/

The above link has some frequently asked questions in regards to contacting your representative which I believe you may find helpful.

Then click on the name of your legislator & it will take you directly to their website where you can contact them.

There is nothing stopping you from being Martin Luther King, Wade!
