I try to keep politics out of facebook, but I just had to make a point today.
I posted about how everyone was up in arms about this thing, when it's going to be DOA. Congress won't pass it, and Obama already said he won't let it go through. It won't happen. But we've had our national debt grow more in the last 3 years then in all the years before combined, and you don't see everyone getting all ripshit pissed about that. Priorities are fucked in this country. We call sell it into default, but don't you dare try to infringe on the internet.
Bascially this bill is bad,it would turn America's internet into like China's Internet.
I thought only Commie countries would try this crap.

while we could survive a temporary shutdown of the internet, something like this would stymie any attempt at innovation that drives the internet. torrents, social media, media sites, youtube, search engines would all be effected, and all have legit uses that could be shut down with SOPA and PIPA. Hell this website and any other similar ones would and could be shut down without a second thought just for posting something that "someone" deems as infringing on a copyright, with no questions asked. It doesn't fight the problem, it just hampers development.
It's a good thing too. Teh Guvment has been trying to reign in the net for years. Glad to see places like FARK, Wikipedia, and Google not falling for this shat.
Yup, Google has a black bar over it's logo.
Merging the threads like that totally confused me for a min.
