Greetings,

First of all, I’m aware that you’ve received several e-mail alerts from me recently, asking you to take action on something I consider important.

I’m risking wearing you out because I think the following two action items posted by my blogging buddy, Chris Borland, are incredibly important:

1. Tell the Senate: NO IMMUNITY for Bush and His Telecom Buddies

2. Net Neutrality Ninjas Needed NOW!

I believe that our ability to communicate with one another via the Internet (e-mails, blogs, alerts from organizations like Democrats.com will be severely compromised if:

  1. Congress gives the telecom giants immunity for illegally providing our private communications to the Bush Administration (how free will we feel when we take positions in opposition to what your government is doing?); and
  2. The Internet becomes privatized, with those who can pay given preferential treatment over those of us who have limited incomes and rely on a free Internet. Citizens’ interests will be sacrificed to corporate interests, which already control the mainstream media.
As you know, I'm involved in many issues, i.e., election integrity, impeachment, saving state parks, you name it, and I count on the Net. I feel so strongly about being able to continue doing this that I’m asking for your help.

Please go to Tell the Senate: NO IMMUNITY for Bush and His Telecom Buddies and Net Neutrality Ninjas Needed NOW!, get up to speed on what’s going on, and take action now. The Senate is voting on telecom immunity this Monday, the 27th. The deadline to file comments with the FCC regarding Net Neutrality is February 13th.
