    Who cares. SOPA being passed or not its over. Goverment just killed the 4th and 6th amendment with the NDAA and you are still worried about SOPA? WHO CARES.

    I say let SOPA pass and any other law they want. Its over. "They" won. Welcome to the future.......also known as the past.

    No I agree . But see NOW it the time to act NOT when they keep passing laws like this . Time to send Obama a message to Repeal this law or tell your next president this ! Time to act is NOW ! Just because NDAA has been past doesn't mean you can not voice up and out against it !

    Sir (or Madam, as the case may be), I had initially believed we might be able to have a rational, adult conversation regarding this matter.

    However, as you have decided to resort to insults and derogatory rhetoric, I will withdraw.

    Good day.

    Apparently you don't know how this works do you. Its done. I for one am enjoying the show.
    QQing on web forums or lil black out protests make no difference. SOPA or no SOPA. Its done.

    Yes, of course you are right, I obviously misinterpreted the compliment you were giving me?

    That must also be "too over my head".

    It is quite possible someone needs help, although I do not believe it is me.

    Please feel free to reply, however, I shall not respond.

    Between FOIA, NDAA, and SOPA, it's all over. They can do what they want to who they want for whatever reason they want for as long as they want. Where's freedom now?

    But as you may have seen here as long as some find that it is not an infringement on there rights ( Most are not well read on the Constitution at all ) Or think it doesn't matter to me or the I don't care people this will continue . No one has drawn the line and told there hired state reps and legislators NO ! They let the lobbyists take control and this is just what you get .
    No one cares so well we Americans had a good run . America is NOT a free nation any more we have given up our rights a long time ago . Oh well when the shit hits the fan you can take my guns from my COLD DEAD HANDS ! The last stand I will be taking is when they want to come into my home they will not come in with out a fight !
    Good day good luck and GOD speed . Welcome to the NEW WORLD ORDER FOLKS !

    You know after thinking about it, the NDAA doesnt really effect anyone except for criminals that have done something illegal such as kidnapping, harboring a terrorist, drug dealers, etc. If you dont partake in this, why should it effect you and I?

    Because the US Government doesn't need those reasons you state in order to detain you. We have certain rights and freedoms in this country and the NDAA just took those away. It disregards our Constitution and Bill of Rights, it is an illegal bill and you should be concerned because like anything else it will eventually be abused.

    Flippin' eck! :eek:

    I didn't know much about this so just googled it and came across the inevitable Wikipedia article, describing the controversial bit. Yeah, that's bad, real bad. :shadedshu I'm sure if 9/11 hadn't happened we wouldn't have this imposed on us now. I'll bet countries like the UK, France, Australia etc bring in something like this.

    mailman: I can see why you're saying for us to quit worrying over sopa when there's this. However, I think bad bills should be stopped wherever possible, even if others get through.

    SOPA is child's play compared to the NDAA. And Mr. Hope and Change signed right off on it. Just like the tax extension and the Patriot Act. Please SOPA is a joke. People worry about the dumbest shit sometimes.

    I mean when you guys whine about SOPA all I can think about is this.....

    Nothing troll about what I said. Gotta love the internet and how people assume certain comments are made to troll because of the way a person views a certain situation. Way to fail. Your momma taught you what it means to "assume" correct?
