Comcast and Verizon executives are hoping you won't watch this hilarious exposé of their plan to pad their profits and control what you see-and don't see-online. If you are still not sure what net neutrality is watch this satire humorous video.

Between this and the homeless roundups, I wonder what country I'm in, starting to get fascist.
POOR AARON, NO GOOD DEED GOES UNPUNISHED. ..words unfortunately that are more true than not
thanks Dandelion, a sad day in our history! !!!

Starting at 23 minutes on this film is shows how very sad it is for the people living in rural parts of this Country now which will only be made worse. Parents having to park cars on top of a hill, next to a busy road, in front of an abandoned building, so their children can do their homework. The only place they can reach the internet from their lap tops. The big Corporations preventing locals from building their own internet service.

Eventually, they want to make the net just like cable TV. Where you pay for access to different packages which they control, Dandelion.

Noted. Many thanks for posting, Dandelion. Gladly signed all petitions. Thought I'd signed most all of them previously, but missed a couple. Finally got WhiteHouse.gov to reset and signed that one finally!

I'm now looking for local ISPs and intend to give up television and cable from Time-Warner. The only power we have is hitting them in the pocketbook. I'm so angry I'm speechless. Thanks, Dandelion.

Watch the video Jonathan it should clear your ???. If you can't do videos the petitions are fairly clear or look up what Net Neutrality is.

Thanks Dandelion......just finished the video "It worked" thanks to people like you getting it out there....had the same problems with my White House account...won't let me reset my password..so I couldn't sign...might explain why there are only 6000+ signatures..........The International Post Code of 00000 usually works Mariette use it all the time myself

Yes, the White House Petition site isn't to user friendly. They keep upping the amount of signatures to even look at it and has made it hard to impossible to get back on if you have lost the ability to do so. I can't get back into it; but I did place the link here for those who still can.

My final response for my White House account was pretty straight forward after several tries to reset my password..including "forget password"...your email address is not recorded. All due to the "heartbleed" virus........like you said Dandelion..they up the ante..to suit themselves........bet they become the "bleeding hearts" come election day..........on a brighter note.......the Budget that was handed down by our new Government in Australia on Tuesday, May 13 was a real crusher...for most....protest happening all over the place.........it takes me back.....many have been shaken out of their complacency for the moment at least......Thank you for all you do, My Dear Friend

Unfortunately Ros, you and some others saw it coming, but not enough paid attention. I've always felt, if you do it to the largest economy, the USA, the other Countries will fall into place. I don't want others to experience this but if that TPP comes on board along with the TTIP with Europe we can all kiss our standard of living goodbye.

NAFTA has been a killer for us over here in USA and I've heard the others will be NAFTA on steroids. Many are already in the forefront telling us over here that if we think we are suffering now or have it bad now this will be looked at as the "good ole days". They know that the internet has been a way for people to converse and learn from each other, if one depended on the TV news and news print only we'd be up the creek without a paddle. We are already sitting in a leaking canoe and if the internet is removed from us the know it will cause us to sink further.

Thanks to those who took the time to view the video, sometimes humor and satire can get a point across even better than dry reading. However I can get the message out I'm trying and I thank a few others on C2 for doing their part, I just wish more people would view these important news submissions. This impacts every other bit of life that they are doing now, they need to understand that.

This is an excellent post, and the video was entertaining as well as very informative. I'll recommend it to anyone I know who wants to understand what is at really at stake with this crucial issue. All petitions signed. Thanks Dandelion, and all who signed!

A lot of us are having issues with the White House Petition site. I guess they thought it wouldn't be used so often. I suppose one way to phase us out, just make it impossible to get into the site after a time.
