3. I called and e-mailed.

The majority of mail boxes were full.

I was able to leave a few messages.

I was able to speak to a few of the staff.

This is an excellent link and very easy to navigate.

I am going to do a repeat performance tomorrow.

Are there any petitions being circulated ???

I would like to sign those as well.

I tried the one John Oliver set up, but could not get it to work.

14. There are lots of petitions online. But this one that EarlG gave the link to seems to be one of the

main ones. SUre MoveOn and other progressive sites would have one.

5. This IS a partisan issue. Repubs work for the big cos., not small businesses as they say.

This will kill some small businesses, whose sites consumers can't easily access.

8. People have no idea what this is about.

When I explain the issue very simply, the reply usually runs toward "WTF, who thought that was a good idea"?

20. You're right but...

It is a partisan issue.

Democrats are for it so Republicans are against it.
The Trump administration is against it so Republicans are against it.

Most Republicans don't bother considering issues and making decisions based on their analysis anymore.
They don't judge issues by how it will affect their life or what consequences it will have.
They are told what to think by the massive Republican propaganda machine and that's what they think.
End of story.

So there is absolutely nothing that is not a partisan issue when dealing with Republicans today.

21. Those big corps fighting for true neutrality should slow their server responses

& have a floating popup explaining that that is what the internet will be like if Net Neutrality is lost.

23. Done

Just did a friendly reminder that we the taxpayers paid for the internet, when the defense department used our tax dollars to do research on this infrastructure in the letter.

And I will call....................to remind them of this fact.....................

24. I contacted my Rep today.

I sent an email and called him even though he's a jerk.

I told him I'd do my best to see him voted out if he supports it. It's a vow I swear to uphold. Since I know his corporate loving heart will support it, I need to plan to get very busy.

Still, I did try and I will work to try to oust him.

25. Very important to keep the Internet open

I talked to an aide in Congressman Roger Williams (R-TX) and left voicemail for Cornyn and Cruz. And I filed formal comments on the FCC website.

27. One of so many important issues on which the Rs want to

sell out the American people. What a monstrous clan of greedy bastards.

28. Thanks for link. They are like rabid animals, foaming at the mouth, only with frenzied

opportunist excitement not enjoyed by the unfortunate fauna.

It's not just TrumpDon'tCare, but a massive, far-reaching wealthcare agenda. And to think many of his moronic supporters voted for him because they bought his blatant BS pretense of caring about anyone but himself (And maybe Ivanka, but only if she keeps working out.)
