Democratic Underground is offline from 3am EST to 9pm EST Wednesday January 18 to protest forthcoming Internet blacklist legislation known as SOPA and PIPA.
The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) proposed by the U.S. House of Representatives and the Protect IP Act (PIPA) proposed by the U.S. Senate have the potential to severely cripple the free and open Internet. Democratic Underground is proud to join the many websites taking part in today's action to protest these bills by blacking out our site between the hours of 3am EST and 9pm EST.
To learn more about these devastating bills, and for information on how you can help to stop SOPA and PIPA, please visit the Electronic Frontier Foundation's Action Center.
STOP THE INTERNET BLACKLIST LEGISLATION!

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

So lets recap, a Far Left Kook website (that we all know and love) has gone "dark" till 9 pm tonight.
And this "Protest", accomplishes what???
EXACTLY. Nothing.May the FORCE be with you!

Hey, just think of what all those losers are trying to do now to have meaning in their life today.In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.
In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
