The American Government trying to ruin the internet

This is some bad stuff, I'm all for protecting IP and slowing piracy but SOPA does way more scary stuff than that.

Internet doesn't belong to the government. So basically, **** THEM.

This is what happens when a government allows industries to bribe politicians to support laws favoring them. Lobbying needs to be treated like the bribery it is, and our politicians tossed into prisons where they belong. If they want to bring draconian cencorship into play like China or Iran, they need to bring others, such as public executions for political corruption.
