One thing to keep in mind, it's a cynical viewpoint but also very likely that politicians are entertaining SOPA for so long because they are raising TONS of money for reelection from the powerful lobbying groups on both sides. Apparently entertainment companies (for SOPA) have outspent Internet Companies (against SOPA).
The bill is supported by entertainment giants such as Disney, Time Warner, Comcast, CBS, and the Recording Industry Association of America.
However, a broad group open internet advocates and internet companies such as Google, Yahoo, Facebook, eBay, and Twitter oppose the bill on the grounds that "it would stifle further technological innovation and free speech."
That was a very interesting read, and I figured mainstream already supported the bill. Yeah, I'd say big media and corporate TV oughta come down. We have starving people, homeless people, no money, broken policies, ruined constitutionality, no patriotism, and it feels like our nation are zombies. I think corporate media realizes that this country has some very real issues and problems. They'd do anything to ruin the free speech enterprise that has been the matter at hand for modern age Americans.
I think the fact that they're not seeing enough 10-digit figures is a sign that they need to shut up our ability to shout about the problems we're facing as human beings... it's not even dictated by where we're from anymore. We're really looked at like we're sheep, and I never really saw much faith or passion behind people when they hear the label. And I just have to ask: why?
See folks, kids, adults of all spectrums; we're entering a new age. George Bush Sr. has said it, Donald Rumsfeld said it, McCain, Obama, Gingrich - all of your weltering politicians have said it, and that "we need to move forward." What do you think they'd say about SOPA now?
"We need to move forward in protecting the security of this country!"
I'm no politician. I'm certainly nobody famous, but you need to start getting that soot of smog and bullshit out of your eyes and clear your head. Stop sitting here reading our posts and do something. Pull an Anon and be a hero. Don't an hero over it.
