Help Prevent the Orange Juice, and Other Blogs You Appreciate, from Slowing (or Shutting) Down

net neutrality menu

This understates, by a wide margin, how bad your Internet service could become if net neutrality is removed. OJB might be part of a premium package for an extra $49 per month, along with other small political blogs, hobby sites, fetish sites, FIFA.com, and MySpace.

This is from BoldProgressives.org, but both sides of the issue cut across party lines.

There’s just one day left to submit comments to the Federal Communications Commission.

Stand up for Net Neutrality today. Submit a comment to the FCC telling them to reclassify the Internet as a public utility.

Also, will you donate $3 to help us organize thousands more people to submit comments in these last 24 hours before the FCC’s deadline?

Thanks for being a bold progressive.

– Keith Rouda, PCCC organizer

P.S. We thought it might be helpful to know who’s for Net Neutrality — and who isn’t.
