Stop Internet Censorship Day

Today, major websites are protesting a bill that could decimate the Internet, as we know it. I’m not given to hyperbolic rhetoric. But that’s not an exaggeration.

Wikipedia, Reddit, and others are going black, in protest of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). Google announced they will offer a link on their home page. But for a moment, I want you to imagine life with out YouTube and your favorite search engine. They might survive this law because they’re big. But they definitely won’t be the same.

And you won’t be as free to express yourself. is NOT going black today. Our part in this protest to encourage people to contact members of Congress and tell them to KILL this bill. Our message?

* Don’t fix it.
* Don’t reform it.
* Don’t amend it.

As you’ll see in the video below, SOPA is unnecessary. This bill should be ripped out by its roots and left to die in the blistering Sun.

You can send your message to Congress using’s Educate The Powerful (ETP) System.

@sirpengi and Jacob Miller have provided this excellent, CONCISE, explanation and video about SOPA and its Senate companion. You can use this material to fashion your own personal letter to your Representative and two Senators . . .
