Get Net Neutrality back!

We want our internet back. Net Neutrality must stay! "Net neutrality is the principle that Internet service providers must treat all data on the Internet the same, and not discriminate or charge differently by user, content, website, platform, application, type of attached equipment, or method of communication. For instance, under these principles, internet service providers are unable to intentionally block, slow down or charge money for specific websites and online content." -Wikipedia This is what we had. If this continues, we pay for internet by the hour. Internet will be for millionaires. Internet is slower unless the companies are sponsored. Average is 1 word per 30 seconds. This puts money in the providers pockets, out of your own. You are losing money and time.  Picture this, you are looking up information for an important school project. You run out of internet allowance. You are forced to buy more. Its like a burner phone, but it is your only option.   We cannot let this continue. Sign this petition and we can fight back! #SaveOurNet - Spread it around.

Drop the Charges Against Trump's First Political Prisoners

On January 20, 2017, tens of thousands of people converged in Washington, D.C. to oppose the inauguration of Donald Trump. A wide variety of demonstrations countered the spectacle of the inauguration, making it clear to the world that many of us reject Trump's cruel and divisive leadership.  A day of defeat became a moment of resistance, and set the stage for the travel ban protests that followed. While Trump and his army of trolls have encountered few meaningful obstacles in the halls of power, grassroots resistance has persisted. Unfortunately, with resistance comes repression. After terrorizing protesters with pepper spray and ‘stinger’ grenades, DC police cordoned off an entire city block and mass-arrested more than 230 people. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Kerkhoff (under the authority of U.S. Attorneys Channing Phillips and Jessie Liu) later sought an indictment charging more than 200 people with at least eight felonies each—for rioting, inciting a riot, conspiracy to riot, and property destruction—punishable by up to 75 years in prison. (Read more about the prosecutions here: With these unprecedented, excessive charges, the state is cracking down on dissent - allowing Trump to pursue his agenda challenged only by symbolic hand-wringing. This strategy corresponds with a broader wave of repression, from arrests and grand jury investigations of Indigenous water protectors at #StandingRock, to the demonization of #BlackLivesMatter. Just as our struggles are connected, these arrests represent a threat to all people fighting for true freedom, dignity, and autonomy.  Join the ACLU, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Partnership For Civil Justice Fund, the Committee to Protect Journalists, and other civil liberties advocates in standing with the J20 defendants. Call on the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia to immediately drop all charges. --------------------------- Learn more at Please follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and share this petition with your friends and family!

Congressional Investigation into Coinbases ability to service accounts.

Coinbase is a Digital Currency trading platform giving customers the ability to buy and sell Digital Currency on line and through their phones.  Due to the fluctuations in digital currency the asset is extremely volatile.  Coinbase customer service takes 48 to 72 hours to let locked out customers back in once locked out and it can be longer if there is any sort of problem.  Their systems are routinely down leading to customers not being able to get back into their account for even longer.  When this happens you have customers in a volatile asset at the mercy of Coinbase to let them back in while their account value can wildly fluctuate.  This petition hopes to solve the problems Coinbase has in servicing accounts, and not have customers locked into a volatile asset for any longer then it would take a Brokerage or a Bank of this size to service a customers account.   THIS IS A PETITION TO CALL FOR SPECIAL COUNSEL TO CONDUCT A COMPLETE AND THROUGH IMPARTIAL, BIPARTISAN INVESTIGATION INTO COINBASE ON THE FOLLOWING MATTERS: 1)  The ability for Coinbase to service accounts in a timely manner. 2)  The average length of time a Coinbase customer is locked out of their account for any reason, and the length of time it took for Coinbase customer service to get them back into their account. 3)  Coinbase boasts 50B+ in Digital Currency exchanged, and 10m+ Customers served.  Do they have the infrastructure to handle such large volumes of customers and transaction and resolve problems within a reasonable amount of time? 4)  What is a reasonable amount of time for a customer of Coinbase to be locked out of their account?  Especially one that fluctuates so wildly. 5)  Is it just company growing pains or negligence by Coinbase by not providing the infrastructure for customers to get back into their accounts in a timely fashion, and still accepting new accounts making the problem worse. 6) If it is decided to be negligence. is Coinbase responsible in any way for losses incurred by customers who where unable to get back into their account due to low staffing, long wait times, systems being down, and not being able to resolve issues in a timely fashion.  All while accepting new customers. Possible solutions:  A cap on accounts Coinbase can open until they can service accounts in a timely fashion (A metric can be used based on historical fluctuation).  A hard limit on the length of time a customer can be locked out of their account.  Backup systems for when their vital systems have outages.  Not having Coinbase and GDAX connected, so if you are locked out of one you can still trade on the other.
