It works ...

The Internet Strike yesterday worked!

Jan. 18 (Bloomberg) -- Six U.S. lawmakers dropped their support for Hollywood-backed anti-piracy legislation as Google Inc., Wikipedia and other websites protest the measures.

Co-sponsors who say they can no longer support their own legislation include Senators Marco Rubio, a Florida Republican, Roy Blunt, a Missouri Republican, and Ben Cardin, a Maryland Democrat. Republican Representatives Ben Quayle of Arizona, Lee Terry of Nebraska, and Dennis Ross of Florida also said they would withdraw their backing of the House bill.


People have had it with special interests trying to curtail our rights in order for them to make a profit. I'm tired of protecting industries that cling to an outdated business model instead of changing with the times. If you can't adapt, get off the field instead of attempting to change the rules.

Great thanks to DU for the link.
