    Democratic Underground is OFFLINE.

    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!
    AAWWWWW, that's just plain cruel.:D

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    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.

    There won't be a clean sidewalk anywhere.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
