Are you aware that legislation is being worked on now to screw us out of rights and freedoms?  It’s happening and it’s going on now.  Most have heard that Wikipedia and other sites shut themselves down today in order to protest the corporate-backed legislation that is designed to censor the internet.  That is what the SOPA & PIPA bills are all about. The following is from Wikipedia’s plea for help…

“Call your elected officials.

Tell them you are their constituent, and you oppose SOPA and PIPA.


SOPA and PIPA would put the burden on website owners to police user-contributed material and call for the unnecessary blocking of entire sites. Small sites won't have sufficient resources to defend themselves. Big media companies may seek to cut off funding sources for their foreign competitors, even if copyright isn't being infringed. Foreign sites will be blacklisted, which means they won't show up in major search engines. SOPA and PIPA would build a framework for future restrictions and suppression.

In a world in which politicians regulate the Internet based on the influence of big money, Wikipedia — and sites like it — cannot survive.

Congress says it's trying to protect the rights of copyright owners, but the "cure" that SOPA and PIPA represent is worse than the disease. SOPA and PIPA are not the answer: they would fatally damage the free and open Internet.”

Contacting your representatives in Congress only takes a few minutes of your time, but will have lasting effects you’ll see for the ret of your life. DO NOT let corporations steal our freedom.  IT IS NOT FOR SALE!
