I said I wasn't going to post this week (and I certainly never get political because I don't think this is the place for politics), but this is important to me. SOPA/PIPA laws could impact freedom of speech on the internet. It could shut down sites like Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and the like. It could shut down blogs that upset corporations with opinions they don't like. Please get educated about this bill and contact your representatives in Congress to tell them you DON'T want to lose freedom of speech on the internet.
We do need to protect our copyright, but this law does not do that. Simple workarounds would ensure that people interested in piracy would still be able to get content. It does not protect anything and could end up doing more damage than good.

Don't remain silent now, or you could end up silent later!
