    Do as we say, not as we dooooooooooo

    Why should Representatives be afraid to use a simple series of tubes?

    you do realise they’ll just claim it was for research purposes…

  4. And this is precisely why we need to use SOPA (if it passes) to file blacklist complaints against the government itself.  Of course, voting out every single incumbent couldn’t hurt either…

    Our actual representatives wouldn’t sully themselves by touching a computer connected to the internet.  That’s what interns are for.

    The information ministry in Orwell’s 1984 could access & read all banned items.   Ditto today in China & elsewhere.   SOPA will not affect the corporate-fascist regime.

    Maybe we got lucky and one of them actually *read* the “How Things Work Encyclopedia.”

    The fact that “Crucial Conversations” is on this list just absolutely slays me.  It’s published by McGraw-Hill, who are one of the nearly 20 publishers on the SOPA support list.

    This list was bullshit. Everyone verified that there were multiple inaccuracies on there.

    If you listen to them talking about copyright infringement, Congress itself is immune to copyright infringement, or so they say. One of the Anti-SOPA reps submitted the Lyrics to “The Internet is for Porn.”

    I have to reconsider my download activities if it means that I’m no better than a politician.

    Can we serve a take-down notice for house.gov now?
