I don’t like to talk politics with my friends and family, so I definitely avoid it here on my blog. In fact, for many of the same reasons, I avoid talks of religion. But there is something much too important to be ignored and I feel compelled to draw your attention to it, if you haven’t already been made aware.
Where do you see yourself two years from now? Could it be in a situation like this one?
It’s sad that something we take for granted now could change with the passing of SOPA, the bill Congress is railroading through before we the people have a chance to build up enough support to stop them.
Whether you use the internet for work, entertainment, research or homework, SOPA will change the internet world for you and everyone across the globe. On December 31, 2011 Obama signed the NDAA (if you’re not familiar with it, you should change that), don’t sit there and do nothing while the government move this one through as well. Please take the few minutes out of your life to watch the following video to learn more about it.
What can you do about it, you ask? For starters, sign the petition. On January 24th Congress will vote to pass this bill. We need to kill it before they have that chance. In a massive display of protest, websites across the U.S. will be going on strike January 18th from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. If you have a website you too can join the cause. If not, that’s alright, let your voice be heard. Ring your message loud and clear.
I like the way this guy thinks! If only we could get all the Big Boys to play along. ~Be warned – he has a potty mouth
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about SOPA. I hope you understand what is at stake and stand up to protect our civil liberties. Because, if we don’t, no one else will.
Due to the strike, the post (Secrets of One Naughty and Nice) regularly scheduled for Wednesday will be postponed till Thursday. Sorry for the inconvenience.
