By this time, im sure all of you are aware of the SOPA bill currently making its way through US legislation. if not, i suggest you do a quick google search (while you still can!)

all you need to do is write in your email, thats it, thats all. add your voice. individually our voices are a drop in a puddle, but together they become a powerful wave. Spread the word on all your forums etc.

I agree, but here's an easier way that involves less searching, reading, and writing

I support this, SOPA just seems to be incredibly stupid and I hope it doesn't go through.

I find it moronic that many American politicians and many Americans for that matter, bash Communism for being an evil to be destroyed due to many of its leaders using censorship to 'duct tape' the voices that scream liberty and freedom, then turn around and create these two bills that does exactly the thing they supposedly loath.

It's already bad enough watching American politics from across the border north and wonder what in nine hells they're doing, but these two bills are just outright retarded (apologies to those medically retarded). There are better ways to combat piracy, which it seems none of the big names have taken and instead go after the mom and pop users, like fining one single mother of four $1.5 million for downloading a few MP3's.

What really amazes me is that the RIAA seriously was pleased with this ruling. Oh yes, please enact capital punishment for petty thieves while they do nothing against the real problem: the pirate hackers and distributors.

Now with SOPA and the other bill, the government are seriously idiots and so is the RIAA and all the big names that support this. Why do I think they're idiots? Because enforcing the two bills is like destroying all the roads and transportation systems around the world, just so a few pirates have a harder time transmitting stolen data AND punishing everyone else who even hints or mentions copyrighted material.

Seriously? I always had a speckle of hope for my American neighbors, but this - THESE BILLS has seriously gone too far.

To my sensible American neighbors: please try to fight harder. Stop Faux News and stop the Republicans and Democrats whom are screwing all this up. It's just so messed up.

More pandering to the corporation. My country's corporations are a blight on the world community. Bin Laden is the terrorist? Iraq is the Axis of Evil? The USSR was the EVIL EMPIRE? LoL Corporate America, take a good look in the mirror. Asses!
