STOP THE PROTECT-IP ACT
The PROTECT-IP act claims to protect against infringement on the internet but all it does is infringe upon our First Amendment right to freedom of speech. If you give a crap about reblogging pictures of cats and hot naked girls, you should give a crap about this bill because if it passes, tumblr is gone. Facebook is gone. Twitter is gone. All those sites that were revolutionary in other countries during the uprisings against oppressive governments? They’re gonna be gone. Remember all the people who live-tweeted the riots in Egypt? They’re trying to stop us from being able to do that. So we won’t be able to oppose our own oppressive government. You know how people can’t go to websites in other countries? That giant firewall in China that prevents them from reading about anything the government doesn’t want the people to know about? It’s coming.
Don’t just sit there and do nothing. This bill is illegal and needs to be stopped.
These are all the links that I know of right now, I’ll add more if I find them. Sign the petitions, contact your representatives. Let your voice be heard. It WILL make a difference.
STILL DON’T KNOW WHO YOUR REPRESENTATIVE IS?
My inner troll in the depths of it’s dark, lonely, putrid lair, whispers to me “Think about it, K-Bo. You can be the troll of trolls, the uber-troll, the GOD troll…just say it….”
“I support SOPA/PIPA.”
“Actually, that’s too low even for a troll. Just gonna stick with harassing socially-handicapped children.”
And foul-smelling beast slinks back into the pit.
