Thank you Wikipedia, Mozilla, Google, Reddit, Wordpress and the more than 7,000 other websites that protested SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect Intellectual Property Act) today by blacking out your sites or supporting the protest by offering information on what these bills mean.

SOPA is a Senate bill and PIPA is a House bill. As usual our politicians have managed to tack on a fancy name to some new bills that may sound decent on the surface but are actually gateways to an unprecedented amount of power to censor and control the Internet. This is free speech we are talking about and that is something the federal government has no right to pry its grimy, manipulative tentacles into.

If you want to be fed news selected by and written by your government, and you want to be limited to only certain sources or portions of information, move to China or North Korea. It does not belong in America and it is a disappointment that the House and Senate are even proposing ideas like these.

Another story in the news, President Obama said “no” to the Keystone pipeline today. Goodbye jobs. Goodbye tax revenue for the federal government. Goodbye economic growth. Goodbye self-reliance on our own energy resources. There will be no strengthening of our economy or opportunity for Americans from the Keystone pipeline. And, if Canada does not feel like waiting until November for a new American president who has a greater interest in creating jobs and wants to work toward refining its own resources, then they will direct it to China instead.

532.0 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day142.
