SOPA, again.

Hey, remember that retarded thing that everybody hated so they didn't do it?

Well, it pulled a Sigma on us, and because Obama thinks it's cute to appoint nimrods to his cabinet on a regular basis, the felony part of SOPA is back on the block.

Kick it back in their faces. This shit's important. Because while laws are supposed to be interpreted by the sane, all it takes is one crazy moron with a gavel to get you some jail time because your fan-video got popular. Self-appointed 'experts' will talk all the time about how copyright law is there to protect people's creations, but the fact is that it's there to protect corporate interests with scads of money. You and I don't benefit from it one fucking iota, because we don't have legal teams.

Also, call your Congressman. Seriously, nobody rings those motherfuckers, and they're a superstitious, cowardly lot. Pound their phone line and you'll spook 'em good, I promise.

I hate how the American government gets to make decisions that affect me without me getting a say in it.

So yeah. Fight this as hard as you can, because the entire world needs you to.

Believe me, Americans aren't happy either. When our OWN government does whatever the fuck they want without our consent/vote/anything. :/

Has it been like this since George W. Bush, or has it been going on longer?  I can only really remember part of Bush's second term, as I was young enough when he first got elected that I didn't know anything about politics or the world in general.

We really need some changes in the American government.  We have people sitting in positions of power far past the time that they are even relevant. For example, we should limit how many terms senators can serve. I'd say 3. 3 chances to do what they claim they're going to do, then they're out of our lives and someone more modern can take their place.

the ones trying to push these stupid bills are probably getting desperate, they want something to stick so they can attempt to purge the net of anything that harms their potential profits.

It's all about killing free speech. They already have access to your money.  If they want it, they'll take it.

The most important thing is that you did it, man.  All it takes for evil to succeed is for good people to do nothing to stop it.

Signed it!  So there we go SOPA numbnuts, hope you enjoy failing again.  I wonder what it's like for them?  "Oh, this time it's SURE to pass!"  Just keep trying, asshats.  I'm MORE than happy to show you the door so I can kick you out it every time!

I'm an American and I did not vote for Obama!

So I'll do what I can from this end. And remember SOPA is SOUP in Spanish.

We had the same stupid shit in our country but it was called C14. The politician trying to pass it (Vic Toews) made the mistake of calling everyone who didn't support it "a bunch of pedophiles". What a fucking dick. Thankfully it didn't pass and we didn't turn into China.

Best of luck, thou your government probably all ready monitors your internet, this would just make it legal to there eyes.

Signed, screw this kind of bill. I hate it when they keep pushing stuff we've continually rejected hoping everyone will forget or get tired of saying no.

Everyone who stands for SOPA is just another Let's Player who didn't get popular on YouTube.

...oh, not again...

I can't sign  the petition as a foreign national, but these things tend to migrate north when the GD Tories are in power, so I hope you lot defeat it. Again.

Somehow, I have trouble believing that "The price of freedom is eternal vigilance," was meant to refer to your own government. Yet it seems to...

Yep, congresscritters at it again. Call and inform them of your displeasure, most of them value their political positions above all else and won't do anything they think could threaten their grip on power and privilege. Emails kind of work, phone calls and snail mail are even better.

"Government that sacrifices liberties for safety provides neither."

Seriously, the SOPA-wankers need to back the hell off. Thanks for bringing that petition to attention, that's definitely a good wake-up call that the same people are still out there trying to slip something like that out while thinking people are forgetting.

I can tell you right now that this bill is not going to pass as it does violate freedom of expression (speech) in the Bill of Rights.  This bill is a waste of time and also a waste of government dollars to try and get this through in the first place.  The last version didn't go through, neither will this.  

However, it is best to make sure it doesn't happen.  Better to be safe than sorry and I have signed two petitions relating to this (this one included).  I can see more happening in the future.

We did it again internet. Now we just need to write up an eighty-page or so document making sure that this doesn't happen again. *Leaving in fine print that everytime we try to control something that the entire world uses another SOPA supporter has to participate in Fear Factor or live off of minimum wage or something horrible.

*If you look closely, you can see how little I understand politics.
