This is YOUR Internet

Unless you've been living under a rock lately I'm sure you've heard of the current legislation being rushed before Congress, SOPA(Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP Act).

Both of these so-called "Bills" were created by lobbyists and are both poorly worded and dangerous to everyone, yes even you readers who use Blogger or Facebook or Google or Twitter or YouTube or Wikipedia...ANYONE who uses the internet (for business or pleasure) will fall under these new rules if we do not stand up and tell Congress to vote NO.

Here is a link from the Cheezeburger network with every state's Senator and their phone number.  Call them TODAY and tell them to vote NO.
Voting NO will keep the internet and your freedom of speech intact.  It will allow you to share pictures, comment on TV shows, blog about current events without fear of being wrongfully sued or shut down.

Here is Google's petition:
This will become reality unless we all give Congress an earful.  Don't let the government start censoring our right to every side of the internet. If these laws pass I won't even be able to share that picture or those links without this post being canned.
