    1. Go to
    (the shortcut John Oliver made to the hard-to-find FCC comment page)

    2. Click on the 17-108 link (Restoring Internet Freedom) (17-108 was the default when I just went but make sure you see 17-108 somewhere - it's near the center of the page on my laptop)

    2. Click on "+Express" (left hand side of screen)

    3. Be sure to hit "ENTER" (or return key) on your keyboard after you put in your name, so it registers. (They make it a tad tricky there but the visual changes - at least on my laptop.)

    4. In the comment section write, "I strongly support net neutrality backed by Title 2 oversight of ISPs." I added a note about how important internet access is for rural areas - feel free to add or just stay with the simple I support message.

    5. Click to Review, then Submit, done.

    Thank you for speaking so eloquetly for all of us. All of us who have been made to feel every step of the way from discomfort to outright terror.

    Since #MeToo went viral, I've learned that many men had no idea how common place an experience this has been for women. They thought it was rare. Or 'imagined.' Or non-existant. Only when so many women speak out at once, sharing experiences both large and small, did they see the full extent of this issue and its damage.

    Women are more than half of the human population. We should not have to live in fear.

    Sometimes the assault is verbal. As in the tweet posted this morning by our president.

    Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!

    As you can see, the attacks continue. How vile does he have to be before the nation says, Enough is Enough?

    Sen Gillibrand responded:

    You cannot silence me or the millions of women who have gotten off the sidelines to speak out about the unfitness and shame you have brought to the Oval Office.

    I read one article warning women there is going to be a backlash. Yes, there will. And it will be ugly. We have to continue to stand together. All day. Every day.

    That whole Christmas tree thing is kind of morbid, if you think about it. I mean, do the trees know they're only going to be allowed grow so tall before the end comes? Do they ever think, "Hey, we're all about the same height. That's weird." These are the things that go through my mind sometimes...

    I would show you the html code I used, but like all magic, it will disappear once I post it. :)

    But as the author of that comment, you should be able to click "edit," and see the code on both ends of your jpeg link. But don't mess with it, because magic can be dangerous...
