this is not a political blog...

...but every once in a while, it drops in my lap.

And, no surprise, it's the people we elected who have written a vague piece of legislation to "cure" a problem... SOPA and PIPA are like handing out flamethrowers to kill flies.

Want to know more? You can start with the EFF site.

Today is Internet Blackout Day... but I am NOT a web guru with mad skillz, so you're going to have to settle for the graphic at the top of the page.

Although I agree with you. I must correct you. This law was not written by our elected officials. This law was written by the MPAA and RIAA and given to them by their lobbyists.

Point taken. Chances are excellent that our elected officials haven't even read what they're voting on.

Love the analogy, but added the setting. Cuz otherwise, using flamethrowers to kill flies sounds way too awesome.
