Good beginning, but now we've got to:
A. Re-elect this guy.
B. Help him to understand that this bill should be for over 9000 years.
C. Pass the bill.
D. Buy Black Ops 2 and start playing Tranzit.
Why re-elect him? I say get rid of all of them. He might hold a positive opinion on this issue but on a whole slew of others issues (including Women's Rights) Issa is a retarded step monkey.
Democrats are the ones who try passing bills like SOPA and PIPA in the first place.
Hopefully we'll have a Republican controlled Senate within a couple of years. They'll be able to stem the tide of retarded ideas streaming from our out of touch Democratic President and Congressman.
I see... I wonder who pushed for the Patriot Act? For the invasion of Iraq? For the FISA bill? Democrat or Republican... both are corrupt parties. It is a false dichotomy to assume that they're not "alike" or are the only choices at our disposal.
U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa, who was one of the strong supporters against the former two bills, released a draft of the proposed bill in question, titled the "Internet American Moratorium Act 2012", to Project Madison, a crowdsourcing platform.
So quit believing everything the biased liberal media tells you and start thinking for yourself.
Biased Liberal Media? How about simply calling it what it is. The Corporate Media. Each Corporate Media Institution having a different internal policy re: Ethics & Morals. What we see, on TV, is not only the "news" but the "news" through this Corporate Prism. These Corporations are welfare Queens suckling at the Tax Payers teets. They lobby and get their way. In fact in this case we're talking about large Media conglomerates lobbying Congress, Senate etc in order to pass strong laws to regulate the Internet on the argument/principle of Patents and Intellectual Property rights (which are illegitimate... there is no such thing as an Intellectual Property Right). The Media is owned by those very same large Media Conglomerates. Therefore is it really any wonder why the Media Institutions tend to support regulating the Internet?
Liberal Media? No... Corporatist Media.
With Fox News you get Pro-Oil, Pro-War and Anti-Union, Anti-Women's Rights, Pro-Racism rhetoric etc (the interests they represent). For CNN you get a Pro-War, Both ways on Unions (trying to find a Middle Ground), Pro Women's Rights, Anti-Racism in a way that is racist (splitting up America into Colors like Black America, White America etc). MSNBC is like Fox only with a penchant for Facts (cept when it comes to Economics) rather than bullshit. Problem is that even if you're right... doesn't mean you have the right to force your views onto others.
So I don't get the logic of your world view. You don't seem to actually factor in Economic principles (Homesteading, Property Acquisition Principles or otherwise). Rather you seem to simply regurgitate talking points from pundits that actually are not in keeping with Freed Markets principles.
