    Help us

    FCC Chairman Ajit Pai will release his proposal to kill net neutrality on November 22, the day before Thanksgiving -- and Congress is under tremendous pressure to stop him. Comcast has hired 40 lobbying firms to fight for the end of net neutrality.[1] AT&T spent $4.4 million lobbying Congress in the third quarter—more than any other tech company and more than last year.[2] These telecom giants have millions to spend and have us outnumbered, but the bottom line is those lobbyists are advocating for policies that are overwhelmingly unpopular with people from across the political spectrum. That's why we still have a chance ...

    Three reasons women marry less educated men

    Have you noticed this trend lately?  More women are marrying men who are less educated than they are!  But here is the real question…does it really matter if a woman has more education than her man?  Will the different levels of education impact how they get along in each other’s social circles?
