    Unfortunately, Lamar Smith *is* my “representative”. Don’t think I’m going to be able to change his mind. I really need to get out of Texas.

    Cory, I read (skimmed) the text of the bill and it seems to be entirely focused on these “foreign copyright ambassadors”, whatever they are. While they do not sound like something I would want, could you be more specific about what exactly in the bill is SOPA like?

    Well, I’ll try getting a hold of Mike Pence, but if it’s anything like my other attempts, it won’t matter at all.

    Oh, for fuck’s sake. Lamar, you cretinous fuckspigot. How much money was in the unmarked black suitcase THIS time?

    Gowdy is on the committee and from my state but not my district. His web form won’t let you email him unless you input a zip + 4 from his district. Christ, what an asshole. Lucky for me, the person in the house who “represents” me is Joe Wilson. Fuck it.

    Unless we get legislation that prevents the possibility of bills like SOPA, we will get such a bill. The profit and power from controlling Internet communications are just too big and bills trying to restrict internet freedom will keep coming.

      There is no such thing. A law congress passes now, a future congress can simply undo by passing a new SOPA-like law that overrides it. The legislature cannot tie the hands of its successors.
