Spew Warning


Remember this from Monday?

I just the other day got, an internet was sent by my staff at 10 o’clock in the morning on Friday and I just got it yesterday. Why?

Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the internet commercially….

They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It’s not a truck.

It’s a series of tubes.

Well, some enterprising person has created a power point presentation (spew warning) so that we can all understand the wit and mental acuity that is Senator Ted Stevens, in all his tubal glory.

Laughing.   So.    Hard.    Mwahahahahaha.

And take a peek at this latest from Time Magazine:

But net neutrality still has a fighting chance. The telecom bill will be going to the full Senate, where the bloggers have one advantage. The chamber is full of potential candidates for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination who have been jockeying lately to see who can best woo the bloggers.

Imagine what a few thousand people with phones and a whole lot of effort could do over the next few days? Hmmmm…that gives me an idea: please call your Senators — you can do so toll free through the Capitol Switchboard at 1-888-355-3588.

Just because they are on vacation for the July Fourth holiday doesn’t mean that their staffers wouldn’t love to hear from you on Net Neutrality.  And if you have the time, contacting local offices or, better yet, showing up at one in person, to talk to staffers or your Senator is very effective.  Thanks, everyone!
