|We did it!!!!|
It's been a week to remember.
Just today, February 26, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to preserve Net Neutrality!! It reclassified Internet access under Title II, essentially retaining oversight of the Net rather than let it be devoured and disfigured by the predatory telecommunications companies. And those vultures will pump even more money into Congressional pockets to get Net Neutrality overturned.
FOR ANYTHING YOU DID TO HELP MAKE THIS HAPPEN, THANK YOU! PEOPLE POWER IS THE GREATEST FORCE OF ALL -- WE ONLY HAVE TO DECIDE TO USE IT.

The good news doesn't end there: On Tuesday, Obama did something right and vetoed Congress' bill that approved the environmental Frankenstein known as the Keystone XL pipeline. Again, this isn't something that happened in a vacuum: It's because millions of people like us stood up to be counted. And you know, when we do that, we'll always win the count by a mile.
But again, that doesn't mean the pipeline issue is just going to go away. There's powerful people/corporations lining pockets as I write this. We must keep fighting! We must be sure to be heard -- constantly.
Check out 350.org to get behind the anti-pipeline movement.
The most important issues ebb and flow, swing and sway. What's reality today, can be changed tomorrow -- for good or ill. But what this week shows is that we do hold the real power. And that's the key to a better future.
