I can't with the American government.

This post is public; feel free to link people to it, pass it around, etc etc etc.

To read more about this Bill, there's a full article over on Oh No They Didn't-Political, which can be found here.

If you can, please contact your House Representative. If you don't know their number, there's a page on Tumblr that will connect you to them. There's also a link entitled, "Email them", where you can sign the petition.

DemandProgress.org had a petition going, but they turned it in to Congress yesterday--while standing alongside Congressmembers Zoe Lofgren and Darrell Issa... with well over 500,000 signatures.

This bill is holding hearings today. Do you realize what will happen if this passes? Take a second and think about what this means to you on a national level; on a personal level; on an interpersonal...hell, even in regards to something like a fandom.. This bill is big, guys. :(

Edit 11/16; 5:15PM: If this Bill passes, here are some sites that could potentially be blocked off to the American people:

-The Pirate Bay
-Almost any forum site

...Well, that's nice. :|

But... I understood well? OMG! But that would be no liberty at all! Like China, and another countries... So sad, really.

I can't believe the American public would allow this to pass.
