I try not to get involved in politics on my blog and in my business (although it’s really hard in this day and age, honestly) but this “Battle for the Net” issue WILL affect my business. I reach you and many other caregivers all over the world, and that’s because the Internet is accessible. What the FCC wants to do is make it so your Internet will be a lot like your TV service: you have to pay for Netflix, HBO Go, Showtime, basic cable, etc., in different packages. They want to make it so huge companies like Comcast and Verizon can do this to your Internet, too. Want to access Facebook? That might be on a different package than basic websites.
I am asking you to do something (other than provide great dementia care) — click this link and sign the petition. And, if you feel like it, make some phone calls. Sign more stuff. Leave a comment for the FCC. Let me know if you have questions.
