STOP S.O.P.A.- The internet as we know it is going to change forever!! SAY NO and join in on the fight to protect our freedom of speech!!!

SOPA and PIPA are pending U.S. laws that would give a handful of corporations power to censor the internet in order to maximize their profits.

The bill is, aimed at stopping piracy, call for a government blacklist that would block accused websites without a court trial.

It would make merely discussing the location of websites on the blacklist illegal.

The unofficial story, BradP.com, every pick up website and many of your favorite websites could drop off the internet with only an accusation.

The internet is the most important tool of our time. In a world dominated by technology, the right to free speech on the internet is the cornerstone on which all other human rights currently depend.

If you live in the U.S., please call your legislators about this on January 18. Let them know that we won’t stand silently by as they try to censor the voice of a generation.

Here are a few links explaining what is going on in more detail and what YOU can do about it!!! Please copy and paste this article and the links everywhere you can and take action!!!

  1. Hey Glenn. Glad to see you amking a stand. So is Craigslist.org.
    Interesting that Bachmann and Polisi oppoese this rancid piece of legislation.

    Here is what I wrote to my guy Congressman Kline.
    HI Congressman Kline. When are you going to Oppose H.R. 3261. ?

    Rep. Michele Bachmann is. This is another attempt by the big guys to use government to restrict freedom of speech. May cost the big guys a little, but such is the cost of freedom John.

    Supporters of PIPA and SOPA: RIAA, MPAA, News Corp, TimeWarner, Walmart, Nike, Tiffany, Chanel, Rolex, Sony, Juicy Couture, Ralph Lauren, VISA, Mastercard, Comcast, ABC, Dow Chemical, Monster Cable, Teamsters, Rupert Murdoch.

    We have Obama care so the Big guys of the Health Care Industry can lock in.
    We have the Big Guys Lobby groups that help to legalize the corruption that Isiah (Chapt. . 5 or 6) warned us about in the ancient day.

    Now the big guys of entertainment want to do the same. btw, it WAS government that got the Internet going.

    Please go on record Congressman Kline as opposing this rancid, piece of tape over the mouths of voices that need to be heard. Really John, you know the opposition can afford it.

    Thank you for considering this. May God continue his blessings on you, your family, and your staff.

    • Well…

      We won!!!

      At least for now SOPA has been shelved because of the public outcry.

      Still be weary and careful. Obama was also against the NDAA and he still signed that piece of shit legislation behind our backs. So keep a watchful eye!

      For now, good job America!That was close…

  2. The Response

    January 19, 2012
    Dear Mr. Schloss:

    Thank you for contacting me to share your opposition to the Stop Online Piracy Act (H.R. 3261). I share your concerns about this legislation.

    I am opposed to the Stop Online Piracy Act because it fails to maintain the freedom of expression provided by the Constitution and infringes on our liberties.

    The rapid expansion of Internet access has created the need to ensure intellectual property laws are up to date with technological standards and intellectual property receives the protection it deserves. At the same time, free enterprise principles allowed the Internet to become what it is today, and any legislation intended to protect copyrighted material should not stifle the Internet. The Stop Online Piracy Act does not properly address these concerns.

    Rest assured, I will keep your concerns in mind as the House of Representatives considers any measures related to online copyright protections.

    Thank you again for contacting me. Please feel free to do so again regarding any issue of importance to you.

    Sincerely,

    JOHN KLINE
    Member of Congress
