There's probably no issue more important to your daily lives as Net Neutrality. I'm very serious about that. Pay attention, because you'll regret not having made a phone call in a year or two if you don't.

If you don't know what Net Neutrality is, click THIS.

Sites with higher traffic will ink exclusive deals with specific service providers, forcing you to choose between, say, MSN and their access to ESPN,, CNN, and others, or AOL and their access to the NY Times, the Wall Street Journal, and iTunes.
