« on: December 14, 2017, 07:36:05 PM »
Even though most Americans, even 3 in 4 republicans opposed it. *pours one out for the internet*

I am sad by what has felt like a complete looting of America lately.  Repealing Net Neutrality is another nail in the coffin.
9/1/2013 - "fiancée" (marriage) visa issued

5/6/2013 - FLR(M)#1 in person -- approved!

Now just waiting out the clock for ILR.

They are wasting so much money and time protecting the interests of few. Shrinking national monuments because uranium companies want to mine there. Tax reform that only benefits the very rich and hurts the middle class more. Forming plans to cut the social programs WE PAY INTO so that when we need them they will be gutted. Its insanity. They need to speed up the Russia investigation and have the results of the 2016 election annulled. I don't want Trump impeached alone because then we have Pence. On top of that while everyone is rejoicing about Jones victory, 48 or so percent of alabama voted for a pedophile to represent them. The country is almost beyond repair at this point :( Current events have had more impact on my mental health this year than ever before, both what is happening in the UK and at home. It's just incredibly sad.

My mental health has taken a huge beating this year, I feel you. I also never would've thought I'd be so invested in an Alabama race before this year. It's wild. I was reading reports that the vast majority of media in Alabama kept referring to Moore's behavior as past "sexual misconduct" in an effort to make it sound more normal, like Trump's past behavior. And that just blows my mind.

My husband was up early this morning watching the FCC vote and was just absolutely heartbroken and enraged. I didn't bother waking up because I just assumed it would be bad. Watching the 'highlight reel' so to speak made me sick to my stomach. The lack of decent humanity is just shocking.

NY attorney General has already released a statement that he will be suing the FCC to preserve net neutrality. Thank goodness for him and the ACLU keeping this government in check.

Supposedly in my home state of WA, they have stated they will try to keep the net neutrality even if passed by FCC. Not sure how that will turn out.....but you can hope they can do it.

I'm not sure, but congress can also write laws to preserve it. :)
