The FCC sided with Comcast and decided to let ISPs censor the internet. The Internet needs to stop this from happening: http://cms.fightforthefuture.org/tellfcc/
Last Wednesday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler announced a proposal for new rules that would allow for a “ fast lane” of Internet traffic for content providers who are willing (and able) to pay a fee.  The proposal reverses the FCC’s previous commitment to net neutrality and open internet and allows ISP’s like Comcast or Verizon to slow down and censor services that don’t pay the toll.
We have to be totally honest, this situation is seriously grim. But there is still hope. The FCC already knows that the Internet community wants net neutrality, but they think they can put their spin on these new rules and sneak them through. If we can prove them wrong right now with a massive public outcry, we can literally save the Internet once again.
We need to stop the FCC now. Big business groups are already ramping up lobbying efforts with the FCC in swarms since Wednesday’s announcement in support of censoring the open Internet and to ensure this dangerous proposal moves forward. 
This is a critical moment. In the last few weeks more than 65,000 people have taken action with us. Can you help us get to 80,000 by the end of the day today?

we’re almost 3/4 of the way there!! c’mon guys, every bit counts!
will it ever stop
fucking signal boost
IF YOU ARE NOT SIGNAL BOOSTING THIS YOU ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTION.
IF THE U.S. FALLS TO THIS IT WILL OPEN OTHER DANGEROUS DOORS INTERNATIONALLY.
Last one, SIGNAL BOOST!!!
We do not normally post this content on this blog but this situation is dire please reach out where you can. If you think internet censorship and restrictions end with the end if net neutrality you are poorly mistaken. It will continue and more lines will be drawn around us. The worst part is is not being properly reported in the news and the average person is unaware.
more will be changed and taken if you don’t stand up now
January: Selfie Olympics
February: Flappy Bird
lets see how the rest of the year goes
March: No Oscar for Leonardo DeCaprio
April: it’s a metaphors, you’re a metaphors, we are a metaphor, if I see another metaphor I’m going to kill someone
Wonder how July is gonna be
i will keep reblogging this each month
does anyone else feel like they just lost their favourite uncle
the saddest thing about this situation is the suicide and the depression and the fact that someone so devoted to providing happiness to the world was lacking it himself
You made us laugh, you made us cry, you taught us that laughter can be the best medicine, you made us think, and reflect about the possibilities of what dreams may come.
Not in before the ‘Sousuke’s an asshole’ and ‘he’s just jealous’ posts but whatever.
Competitive swimming is not football or baseball, these kids really only have a couple years to make it on a national level before they can forget about the Olympics altogether. And let’s not forget that that’s what Rin wants, more than anything, to make it to the Olympics. In less than abstract terms: if he’s not way at the top of national rankings by college, that’s that. Sousuke knows this because he has the same goals.
So with all this in mind, try to imagine what the regionals must have looked like to Sousuke. For that matter, try to imagine what Haru must look like to aspiring athletes like Rin and Sousuke, with all that potential and sparks of motivation only every now and then.
Free! is fun and all, but more than that, it’s a really compelling coming-of-age story. If Rin keeps messing around ~*~because friendship~*~ he’ll never make it. If Haru doesn’t make up his mind about swimming competitively now, he won’t have the opportunity to change his mind later. There are no villains or saints here, only a bunch of teenagers struggling with the enormous pressure of having to decide what to do with the rest of their lives, and having to decide right now.
wow tl;dr STOP VILLAINIZING CHARACTERS, what do you think this is, a Bond movie? Seriously.
