I’m not going dark today like the big boys – I write so little now that the distinction would be academic. However, it’s important to be aware of the assault on our liberties constructed by the bought-and-paid-for representatives of Hollywood and Big Music. It’s bipartisan — the author of the despicable SOPA act is a Republican, one of the co-sponsors of PIPA is, unfortunately, one of my own Democrat Senators (Kay Hagan) who is working out her obligation for the six figures Hollywood gave to her. The biggest shill for the anti-freedom legislation is former Democrat Dodd. It’s pathetic.
This is not the first, nor the last, such assaullt. Many of the sponsors of these bills are the “usual suspects” in the assault on liberty. Remember when Orin Hatch (R-UT) wanted to force computers to have a Hollywood-controlled “kill switch” and give Hollywood the right to hack into, compromise, and inspect every computer owned by every citizen in the country without any warrant or protection? ‘ That’s the kind of people we are talking about here.
