Writing our retarded reps about net neutrality


I found this bot last night on reddit that helps you send letters to your representatives from your mobile phone. If you’re in the USA, think net neutrality is fine just the way it is and don’t want to see the net turn into something like Portugal’s (throttled, censored and expensive) then you may also want to do this within the next few days while you still can. I txted ‘resist’ to the # 50409 and then copy and pasted a template letter from battle for the net.

Dear Senators and Representatives:

Please support any amendment that would strike out Sections 628, 629 and 630 from the Government Appropriations. These sections would undermine the FCC’s Net Neutrality rules and prevent the agency from enforcing these critical protections. It is unacceptable to use a budget bill to circumvent the FCC’s open rulemaking process that millions of citizens participated in.

The American people have called for strong net neutrality rules. Congress should let the FCC do its job, and not engage in unproductive partisan brinksmanship.

Thank you,
[Your name here]




Scarification (never coming back)

   There it was
right there
  everything you ever needed
to know
   Put a gun to it’s head
and shoot it

   Been fed up 
for as long
  as I
could remember
   only got
one thing
   I’m lookin’ forward to
seeing things again
   I’m seeing
things again
   palms pressed
a fork in the road
   and a fire pit blacked
tattoo the section
   beneath the cortex
dilate the cavity
  peerless and clocklike
you stood there
   like a tombstone 
like a vulture
   or a sundial
every day we woke
   to the burial again

Give us just this one
      this one thing
         no one else can see

                 Eleven thousand
        eyes are winking
              you can see their faces
                                but their insides
                   are made
                of words

                                      all around

             It’s a sudden realization
  everything was wrong
              there was nothing
                                       you could do but
                           breathe the saggy weight
the synthesis

                             The hail hits
             hard you could
feel it dead on
                     that taproot digging
                      it’s cheeksquint
                  at the lime green node
                          down a rhythm
          at the surface
        of the crusty frozen maze

It was eerie
                       how well it worked

                       how well it didn’t
work on me

We were popping words
from our pimples

We could see them
in our hair

We slashed our plastic wrists
with rusty blades
ripped them right
out of our veins

We reached up
    and grabbed fistfulls
            of these stupid symbols
      with wide glistening grins
             with dopamine drool
       and with disbelief
                        this static
         that wants me to believe
 is naval
                                              is not


and to think
    this vessel
used to eat

                      old circuitry
                            can only

                     now  it
          on the inside
to expand

a habit

                            and gravity
              of course

                            it’s exponential

                                                     truth  serum

   ten years
                                              of drought

                                                                 are you


I can
see it
in the

                                  liquid  light

            will     it
