    Sen. Rand Paul Opposes and Will Filibuster PIPA Legislation

    “Both PIPA and SOPA give the federal government unprecedented and unconstitutional power to censor the Internet. These bills enable the government to shut down websites that it deems guilty of violating copyright laws. While we support copyright protections, we are also concerned about websites being shut down without their day in court, and making innocent third parties bear the costs of solving someone else's problems."

    Former USAF Karen Kwiatkowski, who exposed that the Iraqi war was a scam is running for the Virginia Senate and is opposing the candidate who proposed the censorship bill.

    Obama also planned to veto the current bill, which is why it has been put on hold. ;)

    The current bill was way too much, but a very light version is needed. I am sorry, if I spent millions of dollars making a movie I would probably want to try and stop sites from showing my movie for free if I had not sold the rights. To me, it is like stealing.
    I do not think if someone links a youtube video they should be shut down......But if the whole point of your website is to link bootlegged material, then yes their is a problem in that.

    Hollywood obviously didn't contribute enough yet.

    Unfortunately, the federal government is corrupt to the core.

    In the 1860's Ape Lincoln authorized paper money , when challenged SCOTUS ruled that paper money was legal so long at it was REDEEMABLE . Today's "dollars" are no longer redeemable.

    Around 1914 Congress Congress adopted the Harrison Act in order to impose a tax on Heroin. A scumbag federal "judge"ruled that Congress intended to control and ban narcotics ;

    In the 30's SCOTUS ruled that social security made good "actuarial" sense and that there would be an account created for each of the participants. Today we know that social security is bankrupt and there are no accounts set aside for anyone.

    Who exactly supports it? There are so many people on both sides opposed to this that it's unclear who is supporting it.
