We Will Not Be Silent

Well, yesterday morning after a few blog posts about SOPA/PIPA I wanted to get back to my regularly schedualed program of knitting, and arts and crafts so I did my normal TILT … but after that post I was informed that Megauploads had been taken down by the FBI and multiple arrests were made in New Zealand. Our government has this control and power WITHOUT SOPA/PIPA ….

“If convicted, each individual faces up to 55 years in prison, the Justice Department said.” 

Even if you are not a hacker, you can still do something. The government must be made aware that we the people will not sit idly by while they try to control us and slowly take away our rights.

Thomas Jefferson said:  “When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

We are quickly losing our liberty.

This is a time of action…

 

“The Internet Strikes Back”

I guess World War III ….. will be known as World War Web ….

Yesterday was the largest attack ever … the following websites were taken down in response to Megauploads being attacked.

Say goodbye to Free Knowledge

 

 

 

That’s what will happen if this bill passes.

Today a large number of websites are protesting the SOPA and PIPA bills! Which is fantastic!!!

Try going to craigslist.org, Wikipedia.org, google is not shut down but they’re being awfully clever. Reddit is down, theoatmeal.com is down. All of the sites that are down have some amazing information for their viewers about what the government is trying to do to censor the internet.

So this morning I expected this to all be on the news … well I didn’t watch it for long because when I turned it on they were talking about important things like arm cleavage and what people wore to the golden globes!!!!! This is what the news channels are turning into and it’s driving me mad. They never talk about real issues anymore it’s all crap, and why most of us get our news from the internet, google news, yahoo news, and sites like that. Personally I get more news info from The Daily Show and The Colbert Report … when Comedy central is putting out more news (even if they’re mocking it) than fox, nbc, and cnn i think that says something… We have enough Entertainment news shows … I don’t wan’t to hear about Kim Kardashian ever, let alone over my morning cup of coffee.

 

So, check out some of the blacked out sites, don’t let the internet get censored.

 

Fun fact. When Kim Jong Il died we knew about it almost immediately … the people of North Korea didn’t know about it for DAYS. Their government controls their internet ….
