We’ve suspected this was the case, but now it’s confirmed: the FCC has scheduled a vote to gut net neutrality protections in less than a month.[1]
 
If they move ahead with their plan, it will hand giant cable and telephone companies unprecedented power to control what we see and do online.
 
The only thing that can stop the FCC now is if Congress steps in and forces them to slow down, and the only thing that will make that happen is if everyone contacts their lawmakers right now.
 
TAP OR CLICK TO TAKE ACTION!
 
Without net neutrality, monopoly Internet Service Providers like Verizon, Comcast, and AT&T will be able to:
 
• Censor and block websites, apps, and services for any reason without transparency or accountability
• Charge Internet users extra fees just to access sites or streaming services
• Demand payments from small businesses, video creators, musicians, and online services just to reach an audience
• Slow Internet speeds to a crawl on any platform that doesn’t pay up
 
The Internet as we know it will never be the same. Click here to contact your lawmakers right now and tell them to stop the FCC from killing net neutrality!

Bar Lazy ISMS - Lose the Labels and Focus on the Fix by WIPjenni
What would happen if we replaced every personality label with a word that actually leads to a solution? What would happen if all the energy put into name-calling was directed at coming up with FAIR ways to resolve conflict? What would happen if instead of referring to yourself as a ‘type’ of person you only considered yourself a human being.

Let’s find out.

I challenge you to replace every label that would come out of your mouth, your fingertips and even your mind, with words that directly address the issue you’re fighting for or against – for ONE day.

Bar Lazy Isms.

Falling with 45 OR: How the Actions of the Few Can Destroy the Many

Believe it or not, I’d been struggling with how to write this. Yes, I’ve been taking pains to decide on the best way to write a blog post that will probably be seen by no-one but me. (Unless of course, my friendly white-hat hacker comes back to see if I heeded the warning.) [I never did decide. I wrote it anyway.]

For more than a year now, I’ve been shouting my own warnings from the metaphorical rooftops to anyone who would listen, and more to the point, to those who refused to listen. I am surely not the only person who could see with nauseating clarity exactly how Trumpocalypse would unfold, and I am definitely not the only one who dedicated hour upon hour, week upon week, month upon month in trying every tactic imaginable to persuade all those within earshot to at least consider the obvious conclusion to the course of events.

I am starting to think, however, that I may be one of a mere handful of folks who are fundamentally unable to grasp the idea that there are so many people joyously willing to harm others for their own petty gains; willing to sink the ship as long as they’re sitting at the captain’s table when they go down with it.

A mentally unstable, paranoid, narcissist who has lived their entire life hidden from REALITY by the riches accumulated by SOMEONE ELSE (that’s important because never having to earn anything feeds the fantasy that “having” equals “deserving”,) is utterly and absolutely INCAPABLE of comprehending what the day-to-day existence of almost everyone else in the United States is like.

Add to that base a crew of self-serving societal sycophants who are more than happy to stoke the fire of Trump’s compulsive superiority complex to achieve positions of grandeur for themselves, and the result is the annihilation of nearly everything that does not directly and substantially benefit the select few who now set the rules. It’s that simple.

Enough childishly, gullible people were so overwhelmed by their own egotism, they deluded themselves into believing a vote for Trump granted them admission into an exclusive club – the club of billionaires who, with barely an exception, gorge on personal advancement by manipulating, overspending and crushing anyone who isn’t them. Everything the United States stands for is being slaughtered and consumed in the name of greed.

Funny thing about “greed”, it’s singularly intimate. It’s “MINE!”, not yours.

The Republican Senators bow down in servile submission for the imagined glory of doing the ‘opposite’ of what was; no mind toward whether it’s better, or even as good, as long as they get paid. “Opposite” is satisfying enough while they roll around in their own arrogance to mask the scent of immorality.

The Democratic Senators cower behind their snide commentary (it’s better to look momentarily clever than perpetually ineffective) and pat themselves on the back for having the ‘courage’ to talk the talk when their knees buckle with fear and they can’t walk the walk. Talking is responsibility enough as long as they get paid.

Trump, The Juggernaut of Gibberish is growing fat on the flattery offered by his subordinates. Their co-dependency on his position ensures they provide a steady supply of reassurance for his delusional diet – that’s the only way they get paid.

It’s an unrighteous and abhorrent nightmare of truly epic proportions.

I witnessed the train being built.
I heard it leave the station.
I smell the fuel burning.
I see the bridge is out.
The brakeman’s hands are busy clutching his vanity.

Millions are already suffering with millions more soon to join them. Millions of people will lose their lives as a direct result of the self-entitled, self-absorbed few.
