Rebels Unite!

Today’s the big vote in Alabama. Please, Alabama folks, listen to Charles Barkley. I love listening to the guy announce basketball, especially when he slips up and says, “boob” instead of “ball.” I have to share this video because it exists. I didn’t make it up, and I was not the only person entertained by this:

Charles also had this to say yesterday:

“Listen, I love Alabama, but at some point we’ve got to draw a line in the sand so we’re not a bunch of damn idiots.”

Don’t be a bunch of damn idiots, Alabama. There’s still time. GET TO YOUR VOTING BOOTHS!

Also this week, the FCC will vote on Net Neutrality Thursday. I beg all of you, my fellow United States citizens, to Break the Internet. I received the following email from Kurt Walters at Demand Progress this morning, and I wanted to share it with you, so you too can take action.

If enough of us participate, we can spark a political crisis for Congress and force them to step in and stop the FCC vote or overturn it.The entire internet needs to come together. If we get creative we can make the kind of moment we need to stop the FCC from handing Comcast and Verizon the power to control what we can do online with censorship, throttling, and new fees.We’ve got a plan everyone can use to sound the alarm and drive a flood of actions to Congress before the net neutrality vote. Click here to find out how you can join in.The battle for the net has been raging for years. With Verizon’s handpicked crony Ajit Pai leading Trump’s FCC we need to do something epic and unexpected to get people’s attention and win this fight.Here are some ideas:
  1. Change your Facebook relationship status to “Married” (to net neutrality) and add a comment linking to

  2. Add a new “job” on LinkedIn: “Defending Net Neutrality at” and make sure you’ve got the “notify people when my profile changes” setting on.

  3. Change your Twitter and Instagram featured website to BattleForTheNet.comand post frequently using the content.

  4. Write a blog post or email your friends telling them why you care about the free and open internet and asking them to take action at

  5. Sites and apps, send a push notification or drive action using our widgets and banners.Click here to get everything you need to “Break the Internet” for the 48 hours before the FCC vote.

If you do nothing else, set this image as your profile pic:

Thanks for all you do, my fellow rebels. Spread the word, denounce the horrible people who don’t deserve to govern us, and #resist, #resist, #resist
