SAY GOODBYE to PRIVACY - or in our own words, FCC Are You Out There?
Gisele (Dr. Waters) and I discovered each other today, but we've probably been friends for many lifetimes. Gisele has graciously allowed us to republish this important summary of a RIGHT being pulled out from under us. Here's Gisele's work.
Still in shock... Say goodbye to #internet search #privacy and hello to a lot more targeted advertising "answering" your every search string.

WHAT DO I DO?
Who was paid and how much by Broadband (Internet Service Provider/ISP) Big Business? Blunt, Cornyn, Cruz, Hatch, Rubio, Thune, and Wicker received the most in large part from Verizon, Comcast, ATT, Cox and Trade Groups*

WHAT IS AT STAKE?
Apparently, it seems this isn’t just your browsing history or cookies. It’s geolocation data, financial info, passwords, health info, even your Social Security Number. Anything you do, any data you enter, any online video you watch, any email you write. Your ISP could store it all and sell it for their own profit if Congress throws out the FCC rulings.
I have so many questions. The intended and countless unintended consequences of this legislation are only beginning.
