COMCAST ABSOLUTELY MUST BE STOPPED
Later I may come back and outline what mergers of this size mean for the future for all of us — and I may even type my own tale of woe and deceit and everything BUT *high-speed cable and internet* — but for now I am just going to paste this very important message from fightforthefuture.org
It’s not cool to sign petitions. But they DO work. Adding your voice to a petition tells the powers that be that you too disagree with the world becoming a terrifying place run by 3 major companies who bought out every smaller company and will battle each other to the death for world control via being the sole supplier of the world’s needs. So stop surfing of checking facebook for 2-3 minutes, get your priorities together and risk being uncool, and add your name. Or a fake name if you are a conspiracy theorist. It is safe, fast, and effective.
And if you have kids then you OWE THEM your best efforts at saving the future for them.
There’s good news! Thanks in part to the response we helped generate, the FCC has extended the deadline to receive comments about Comcast’s attempted internet takeover untilOctober 29th.
50,000 people have taken action already. The FCC will be surprised by this kind of response to a merger question, but the deck is stacked against us so we need to go all out. Can we count on you to help us get to 100,000 comments by the end of this week?
Read the email below for more background, and please forward this to your friends and family. It affects all of us!
This one really requires no explanation. The most hated company in the US is trying to take over the second most hated company in the US, in a move that would raise our cable and Internet bills, stifle online free speech, and make them one of the most powerful lobbies in history. 
This merger is bad for EVERYONE, and there is tons of opposition, even from within the FCC. We have a real chance at stopping this but we have to act quickly. 
Comcast is already the largest and most powerful opponent of net neutrality, online privacy, and Internet freedom. They’ve been caught several times abusing their “gatekeeper” power as an Internet provider to further their own interests.  If the FCC lets Comcast forcibly absorb Time Warner Cable — the second largest Internet provider in the U.S. — they will control access to information in nearly 6 of 10 people’s homes (more if you’re only counting truly high speed Internet). 
Millions of you have sent comments to the FCC in support of net neutrality. We’re asking for your help again because if this merger goes through, Comcast gets even more powerful — in the marketplace, online, and in Washington, DC. If we don’t stop this takeover right now, we’ll be fighting an uphill battle on net neutrality and online free speech for years to come.
After you sign, please forward this email to everyone you know and share the petition on social media.
