SOPA is back

Well it appears that a few senators are miffed that they didn't conveniently acquire new vacation homes, and the RIAA and MPAA are back to solve their issues. This garbage just makes me sick. Not like they haven't had enough flak with their entire NSA debacle, congress decides to stick its neck out again.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 2

A mass exodus of incumbents might do the trick.

That's why people should never tire fighting, and make sure that these people are never given a political seat again. The only thing needed for evil to succeed is for good men to stand by and do nothing.

It's not the fault of congress. It's big business and those at the top who have so weaseled their way into government, that government either does not act without their input, or blindly follows their commands. It all boils down to money. The government exists to benefit the rich and those at the top. You had better get used to it, because as long as the stupid half of the country votes for "conservatives", whatever that means, this crap is going to keep coming up every year, especially because of nonsense like Citizens United that allows unlimited spending to influence U.S. elections. They can legally spend as much as they like to make laws that benefit them by taking rights away from you, and they'll keep doing it the same way they've been spending billions to convince gullible fools that man's activities has no affect on the climate. We live in a sad country. SOPA or something like it is coming. You're not likely to stop it.

I doubt it. The stupid half of the country always votes Republican. They're just going to replace one corporate owned politician with a crazier corporate owned politician. The new one will probably be a doctor who doesn't believe in science or vaccines, or something...

Of course it's back, they're going to keep trying, but we're going to nee to stay strong and now get too tired to fight it, we can't let that happen.

I love how farrell2k never acknowledges that the Democratic Party is a part of the problem too, and that there aren't any idiots who vote Democrat for stupid reasons. Jesus Christ man, it's like you were wired to a propoganda machine at birth...

The problem is that both parties suck, and we're left making choices between the shiniest of two turds. Both sides have views that could be considered "extreme" in one direction or the other.

What happened to the middle ground?

You guys still think we're in control of any of this? Wake up and smell the democratically camouflaged dictatorship already! It's all smoke and mirrors meant to keep you from admitting the truth to yourselves.
