    I have a better idea: Vote all the DIMoTurds out in November. Then you won't have to worry about the NAZIS any longer.

    This one is a mix of idiots from both parties.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    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

    http://miamiherald.typepad.com/naked...l-anymore.html

    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).

    Rubio wrote on Facebook: "In recent weeks, weve heard from many Floridians about the anti-Internet piracy bills making their way through Congress. On the Senate side, I have been a co-sponsor of the PROTECT IP Act because I believe its important to protect American ingenuity, ideas and jobs from being stolen through Internet piracy, much of it occurring overseas through rogue websites in China. As a senator from Florida, a state with a large presence of artists, creators and businesses connected to the creation of intellectual property, I have a strong interest in stopping online piracy that costs Florida jobs. ...

    Earlier this year, this bill passed the Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously and without controversy. Since then, we've heard legitimate concerns about the impact the bill could have on access to the Internet and about a potentially unreasonable expansion of the federal government's power to impact the Internet. Congress should listen and avoid rushing through a bill that could have many unintended consequences.
