(X) https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/with-net-neutrality-on-the-chopping-block-communities_us_5a0f467de4b0e6450602eaa5 We should be loud and clear in the coming weeks like weโ€™ve been before: net neutrality is crucial to helping everyone, regardless of where they live or how much money they make, get online. But thereโ€™s another way we can fight for an open internet. Last week, 19 towns across Colorado voted to allow the exploration of creating a local, public alternative to expensive private providers. Fort Collins voters went the furthest, passing a measure to finance an assessment of starting a city-owned broadband utility, which would aim to provide faster service at a cheaper price. That means residents could have a say in whether a new public network maintains the principle of net neutrality, whatever the FCC decides in the future. โ€œPeople who donโ€™t normally get excited or vote actually turned out this time and actually got energized,โ€ said one resident who had campaigned for the measure. Not everyone was excited. Industry groups spent more than $450,000 campaigning against the measure. In fact, the very reason Colorado towns had to vote โ€œyesโ€ before even exploring public broadband is because of an industry-backed state law requiring municipalities to jump through hoops to take control of their internet infrastructure. (The industry has successfully pushed similar legislation in over 20 states.) Comcast and the like are quaking in their boots about a public option, and they should be. Cities like Chattanooga, Tennessee, which became the first U.S. city to offer gigabit internet speed after going public, are outperforming private providers and even forcing them to innovate to play catch up. Why shouldnโ€™t internet access be a public good? The web should be like the Postal Service, which, because itโ€™s public, provides affordable mail service to everyone, rich or poor, in all areas of the country. And why should a handful of corporate executives and investors get rich while providing expensive, slow access and unbearable customer service? Comcastโ€™s CEO, billionaire Brian Roberts, pocketed $33 million last year alone while running Americaโ€™s most hated corporation. People need the internet for life in the 21st century, to communicate, apply for jobs, and access crucial resources. Everyone should have affordable access.

this is so cute and sweet. a lot of bad has been going on lately and i hope everyone has a good day and stays safe. -andi: Whitney Kittrell February 8 at 11.15am.In stagram When became a single mom over 3 years ago I made a promise with myself that I would do anythinglcould, even if it meant going out of my comfort zone, to give my kids a "normal" life and the same experiences as other kids. We have accomplished a lot. Trips alone, teaching my son how to play catch, killing bugs with minimal screaming, countless memories, and a normal life. But when mykindergartener came home with a paper saying that they were having "dads and doughnuts" my heart kinda sank. I finally sat him down and asked if he wanted to ask his grandpa to go. He just smiled and said "no. I want you to go. You're my mom and dad. So this morning Igathered up my best dadoutfit painted on some facial hair, and went to breakfast with my sweet son, I was so embarrassed but I couldn't help but smile when he introduced me to his little friends saying this is my mom... she's my dad too so I brought her!" I've tried my best to let them know they are loved but wonder a lot if I'm actually succeeding at it. Whenlwent to leave he ran after me and hugged me tight around my neck and whispered "mom... I know that you'll always be there and do anything for me. Thank you. love you" kissed my check and ran off. I hope he remembers this day cause Ill never forget it or his sweet words. singlemom adadsanddoughnuts amy forever lovewhatmatters Edit: I've had people askif they can share this. You're more then welcome to. Thank you for all your kind words Idon't know why I'm crying in the this is so cute and sweet. a lot of bad has been going on lately and i hope everyone has a good day and stays safe. -andi
