I have a better idea: Vote all the DIMoTurds out in November. Then you won't have to worry about the NAZIS any longer.
How come John McCain and Lindsey Graham are always one of the guys behind really crappy legislation like this.
SOPA is bad law. Can you guys imagine the internet if this stuff passes?
Support the OPEN Act, from Reps Issa and Wyden. SOPA and PIPA will destory the internet. This is one place where I agree with Obama, though he's doing it for other reasons, namely political support from Silicon Valley
Rubio pulled his support for PIPA, hopefully more will follow suit
Rubio says he doesn't support Internet piracy bill (aka the Wikipedia blackout bill) anymore
Sen. Marco Rubio said this morning that he is dropping support for a controversial Internet piracy bill, contending it is being rushed through the legislative process and could have "unintended consequences." His retreat comes on the day of a national protest (see above).

Congress should listen and avoid rushing through a bill that could have many unintended consequences.
