Want to Keep Using the Internet? Read This NOW!
In its ongoing quest to clamp down on internet communications, the federal government is proposing yet another horrifying new bill.
The proposed House legislation, the "Communications Opportunity, Promotion, and Enhancement Act (COPE)" is designed to allow telecom companies to begin charging a fee to websites in order to let their content through quickly. Those not paying the toll would have their sites "throttled," ensuring large companies (who often work hand-in-hand with governments -- see http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4645596.stm ) would come up quickly on your computer, while smaller sites, such as individual blogs and other small content providers, would come up slowly or perhaps not at all.
What does this mean for you ... and freedom? The internet would become much like mainstream media is now: huge corporations controlling all of the information you receive, while independent media slowly fades away. After all, faced with the choice between waiting several minutes in order to surf JPFO.org (if at all) or just a few seconds to surf www.msn.com , many people will simply choose the latter.
The freedom of communication offered by the internet has long worried the Beltway crowd. By allowing large telecommunication companies to determine what content is offered, the first steps toward total control will be taken. For more information on the COPE Act, see http://tinyurl.com/l4tu6 . This bill is in Congress NOW!
By popular demand, JPFO will once again be offering high-quality knives at wholesale prices for JPFO supporters. For less than $40, you can get a $130 knife! Stock is on order, and we will let you know when these great products are available.
