SSOR - Stop Stealing Our Rights!

If tyranny and oppression come to this land, 
it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy. 
James Madison

Losing the Freedom of the Internet

The Congress and the House of Representatives have come up two separate bills to further curtail our freedoms. I guess it is just too hard for the poor peeps to tackle something important, like sending jobs overseas, corruption on capitol hill, the environmental dangers posed by fracking and the XL pipeline, climate change, the disappearing middle class, etc.

Oh, but they have time to write the bills that will take away the few pleasures left to the public that is struggling to work, live and pay taxes.

Congress is about to pass Internet censorship, even though the vast majority of Americans are opposed to it. We need to kill the bills - PIPA in the Senate and SOPA in the House - to protect our rights to free speech, privacy, and prosperity.

S.968 - PROTECT IP Act of 2011

PIPA - Establishes process by which a website is taken down because the Justice Department (DoJ) says the site is conducting infringing activities. The DoJ or the copyright owner would begin legal action and the DoJ could demand that search engines, social networking sites and domain name services block access to the targeted site.This could all be done without anyone being heard by a judge.

Stop Protect IP Adresses (PIPA) - Read the bill here.

H.R.3261 - Stop Online Piracy Act

SOPA - Basically the same as PIPA, with some additions: . . . against any site they deem to have "only limited purpose or use other than infringement," . . . It would also make unauthorized web streaming of copyrighted content a felony with a possible penalty up to five years in prison. This bill combines two separate Senate bills -- S.968 and S.978.

Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) - Read the bill here.

People are saying these bills will break the Internet.  In protest many of the large websites, like Wikipedia are "blacking out" their websites tomorrow 1/18. I have decided I will add this post to all my blogs as a public service announcement,

Those who are deserving to be given legal status must be given it. We should not look at all illegal immigrants as useless bugs! There are many professionals from among these people who can contribute more to this country than many of US citizens who became too complacent and less driven to achieve more in life. Who are these people shouting for jobs taken away by the "border jumpers"? Aren't these the menial jobs, low paying ones? Maybe it's high time for all American citizens who had been in deep sleep to wake up, level up, go back to school get as many degrees as you can so that if get fired in one job, you still have ammunition left, rather than blame others for your misfortune. Equip yourself and compete to the max! No money? get student loan. If you incur credit cards debts for nonsense things, why not invest to become versatile and ahead of those illegal immigrants? That is what US citizens should be.
