Keep the net free

It is sad that we have to keep killing the dragon over and over and over again day after day after day.

Please support the free internet and use the URL to the letter below to put a stop to this relentless nonsense.

I was talking to a friend of mine yesterday and I asked him how he felt about the attack on the free internet. I was astounded at his reply and I realized that many folks actually may mistakenly feel the same way.

He actually thought that if the fat cat corporate giants controlled the internet that it might somehow prevent his children from watching porn. Nothing could be farther from the truth, you can not expect any one or any organization to safeguard your children, you have to take the responsibility and do it your self.

I realize that the porn issue is a hot debate, but handing the control over to the greed ridden cable companies is not the answer by any means. Besides, I would offer that you should be far more concerned with your children watching cartoons as they are awash with political influence and a daily dose of them is a sure way of brain washing the tiny tikes. Kinda explains a lot of things if you stop to think about it. No wonder our youth wants a new America, they have all been brainwashed into thinking that it is government that will give them all they want.

First off, controlling what his children watches on TV or the computer is his responsibility, not mine or the government and certainly not Comcast or Verizon or some other company that wants to line their pockets with our cash so that we can use just a little of what is ours already.

Folks, their is nothing on earth that will replace personal freedom and their is nothing on earth that is worth more. Keep it as long as you can and when you die go down fighting for it.

  1. Personal freedoms for every individual. Agreed! And since internet service doesn't grow on trees, what about the personal freedom of the provider? Let free enterprise take care of greedy businessmen. Can't use government force in the name of freedom! As Washington said: "Government is not reason. It is not eloquence. It is force; like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action." Giving government more power, especially in todays political culture, is suicide.

  2. I am in agreement with you on this Tal, we should keep government out of it. That is why I dislike the FCC giving the greedy giants complete control and more power over us.
