“For in reason, all government without the consent of the governed is the very definition of slavery.”  –  Jonathan Swift

Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, would censor the Web and impose harmful regulations on American business. Millions of Internet users and entrepreneurs will be effected by this and already oppose SOPA and PIPA.

The Senate will begin voting on January 24th. Please let them know how you feel.

“To make matters worse, SOPA and PIPA won’t even work. The censorship regulations written into these bills won’t shut down pirate sites. These sites will just change their addresses and continue their criminal activities, while law-abiding companies will suffer high penalties for breaches they can’t possibly control.”  quoted from  Google “End Piracy, Not Liberty”,  paragraph #3.

This reminds me of the gun control laws in some states.  Take New York for example, gun control is so strict there, it is difficult for the law-abiding citizen to legally purchase a firearm. But you know, the criminals don’t have a problem getting their hands on guns.

Personally, I see this country on the fast track to socialism and I don’t like it one bit!  What’s next? – a spy cam in every home?

If you are unfamiliar with the bills, please go to these links to read about what Congress is trying to do.

“STOP PIPA & SOPA; S968 & HR3261 are threatening CL and the rest of your Internet. Most of the web sites you use strongly oppose these bills. Find out why, and how you can help put a stop to this madness before it’s too late!” quoted from Google.


About Mme Jocelyne

Hi, I'm a transplanted northerner–(born and raised in New York to French immigrants–Oui je parle Francais)-living in Florida for 20 years. In the 70's I worked as a realtor in the Bronx – City Island to be exact. Then I started a family and didn't keep up my license. I aspired to a career in architecture, so I went to New York Institute of Technology for three years, moved to Florida and finished my degree at the University of Florida in Gainesville. After 10 years of working in my dream career I sustained an injury to my shoulder. This injury never healed because I was constantly on the computer doing cad design. I finally decided to make a career change – something where I could use my training as an architect. Needless to say, I was worried – where will the money come from? How will I be able to afford my career change? But, I put my faith in God and went for it. It’s the best move I ever made, other than my husband, children and dogs.

    • Thank you Marcus for stopping by my blog. I hope we bloggers can get the word out to as many people as possible that these bills are NOT GOOD for the general public. There must be a better way to solve the problem. I believe we are headed to a one world government and I for one am glad that I am halfway through my life. I know I wouldn’t be happy living under such a tyrannical government that we seem to be headed for.
