Die greedy corporate bastards, die

Dear Verizon:

Isn’t my $100 phone bill enough to please you?  Can’t you just leave the friclking Internet alone?  What will my billions or readers do without their daily dose of crap.  They’re not going to pay to get it.  Trust me.  i already tried.  They said, and I quote: “GFY.”  So I am saying the same to you.  It’s my internet.  I paid for it.You should be paying me,

P.S.  GFY (if the veiled reference was too oblique).

Dear MoveOn member,

Do you buy books online, use Google, or download to an Ipod? These activities, plus MoveOn’s online organizing ability, will be hurt if Congress passes a radical law that gives giant corporations more control over the Internet.

Internet providers like AT&T and Verizon are lobbying Congress hard to gut Network Neutrality, the Internet’s First Amendment. Net Neutrality prevents AT&T from choosing which websites open most easily for you based on which site pays AT&T more. Amazon doesn’t have to outbid Barnes & Noble for the right to work more properly on your computer.

If Net Neutrality is gutted, MoveOn either pays protection money to dominant Internet providers or risks that online activism tools don’t work for members. Amazon and Google either pay protection money or risk that their websites process slowly on your computer. That why these high-tech pioneers are joining the fight to protect Network Neutrality[1]–and you can do your part today.

The free and open Internet is under seige–can you sign this petition letting your member of Congress know you support preserving Network Neutrality? Click here:
