    Sent a message to my congressman!! This is totally unlawful and would screw up everyone's way of life! No need to apologize for speaking about politics on here with this huge topic Ludachris; thanks for the info!

    The push back seems to be working.

    "Congressional support for controversial online piracy legislation eroded dramatically on Wednesay in the face of an unprecedented online protest supported by tech titans such as Google, Wikipedia and Facebook."

    Five key senators abandon online piracy bills amid web protests - The Hill's Hillicon Valley

    But don't stop protesting. Why. I remember once being lied to by a politician. Where's that icon for "turns head and spits"?

    The good news is that President Obama DOES NOT support either bill. Of course this doesn't mean to stop calling your congressman. Three politicians have also pulled their support of this bill. DSMers, let's join together with every American and flick our Bics at these two bills and watch them burn in hell. Thank you, President Obama for realizing that freedom of speech is not only important, but it's a Human Right!

    I just saw this post (mostly because it was quoted). But something struck me as odd. In this statement:
    What do you mean by "like me"

    It means I used to frequent said website in 2006 and now I do not.

    Oh, and Obama originally supporting it and now not supporting it is a tool to make him look like a hero. Im sure in time this law will take effect, and then I will take a lot of drugs and start an anti government community with armored dsms.

    Oh I thought you were implying you were a hacker. The very fact that would you refer to yourself as a hacker, would mean that you aren't.

    Hacker is all Hollywood

    Isn't this bill practically used for fighting piracy and hacking?

    Also censoring internet is stupid. Freedom, where? With all the new bills NDAA and all that other stuff... I wouldn't be surprise when they start CHARGING FOR AIR TO BREATHE.

    Why take that chance? Just join the petition on google. It's like in court where the prosecutor tells his story and evidence and the defendant says nothing....who do you think would win?
