You can catch our livestream of the event here at 10 AM EST

This morning at 10 AM EST, members of the Senate Energy and Commerce Committee will be holding a hearing demanding answers from FCC Chairman Ajit Pai about the phony “cyber attack” the FCC repeatedly used to downplay the overwhelming opposition to the agency’s repeal of net neutrality. The agency lied to Congress about the alleged attack, which was said to have happened right as millions of John Oliver viewers were trying to file pro-net neutrality comments following the comedians viral broadcast. As a result many voices were excluded from the record, making the FCC’s repeal corrupt and illegitimate.

Head over to BattleForTheNet.com or call (202) 759-7766 to take action and tell your Representatives in Congress to support the net neutrality Congressional Review Act resolution, which if passed would overturn the repeal.

We’re net neutrality experts and advocates defending the open internet, and we’re here to answer your questions about the hearing today, or anything else related to net neutrality, so ask us anything! We'll be answering your questions till 12:30 PM EST.

A couple want to have children but the wife can't get pregnant
...so they go to see a priest for advice. The priest tells them they came at the right time, since his superior just sent him to Rome for 10 years, and he's leaving tomorrow.
'As soon as I'll get there, I'll immediately light a candle for you,' he promises.
Time passes and the priest returns to the little town after 10 years. The first thing he does is visit the couple's home. He can hear a crazy loud noise when he knocks on the door. The wife opens the door; three little children on her arms, a couple of them hiding under her skirt, and others behind her playing around. The priest counts as many as ten of them!
'Well this is quite a pleasant surprise,' exclaims the priest. 'It seems like God listened to my prayer. But where is your dear husband?'
'My husband traveled to Rome,' says the wife with a tired look on her face.
'To Rome? Why on earth would he go to Rome?'
'To blow out that bloody candle you lit!'
