Piracy Legislation
The growing (Stop Online

today. With websites like Reddit and
Wikipedia and gaming organizations
like Mit' prepared
for a blackout on January 13th - the
same day that the House Judiciary
Committee hearing on HR
Much to the chagrin of Hollywood, the Entertainment Software Association
which has been a backer of the bill from early on), and Internet domain
company (which lost many accounts as a result of its support
for the billy; SOPA has been shelved, The Motion Picture Association of
America, one of the hills largest sponsors, is expected to regroup.
California congressman Darrell Issa, who has been opposed to the bill from
the beginning, praised the Internet action that has swept like a virus across
the Web the past week,
The voice of the Internet community has been heard," said Issa. Winch more
education for members of Congress about the workings of the Internet is
essential if legislation is to be workable and achieve broad appeal."

I bet sopa was actually made just so obama would say no. that way he thinks he will get more votes, since other than that he didnt really do much.

there's two main issues with this:
1) that's not how the amerifat government works. if both the house of representatives and the senate approve something but the president vetos it, it will be brought back to both groups to try again. it goes back to the idea that one man can't single-handedly control the government in the way a king would. it would just need a lot more votes the second time if the president vetoes it.
2) this is all brought around the same time that Obama is running for reelection. If he by some means stops it, he would pull the same move that he did after the Osama assassination. "I killed him." He took credit for the attack despite the military masterminds at work planning and highly trained men who went into Pakistan for the kill
3) The NDAA of 2012. Granted, that bill is passed every year. It is what is says the military gets X amount of money and the troops should do Y this year. This year as some of you may or may not know gave a clause that allowed for the indefinite detention of amerifats without due process. As you can guess, this startled damn near everyone that heard about it. But when Obama threw his two cents into it, he said he'd never allow for it. but regardless, signed it anyways.
4) There's only one of two possible outcomes of this. He bites the bullet and signs it anyways. He refuses to sign it and basically ends his career because he would loose the support of all the democrats and media in support of it. If he stands by his word, the bill would get shelved and until the next president comes into office. Which is already known that most of the republican candidates are in support of it. All but Ron Paul.

I know it's long. and most of you will red pinkie. But i promise you it's worth the read.
Either way, here's a bit of OC i made of Ron Paul. Enjoy
