To all Americans...

Several million folks let themselves be known to congress yesterday. Several congressmen, including one of the original authors have pulled their support.

Big tired dying (but still very powerful) media companies are behind this. Short sighted as ever and explains why most of these businesses won't be around for very much longer.

 

and one good sign, could not get to one of my senators yesterday, later found out he blacked out his web sight...think he got the point.

 

 

That is soooooo nice... Whatever happens they can't win in the long run. The future will be ours --->

this is an extremely complex, convoluted issue- no doubt about that. But I suspect, the "corporations" are really not much more than useful idiots, serving a more sinister group. Let me explain. Here in the U.S. we are in the early stages of an election that is of critical importance to both of our major political parties. The politicians of both parties rely on public perception for their very survival. The traditional media have been working hand in hand with the government for decades, providing the necessary public preception required by both parties. The traditional media has been reliable and comfortable to work with, and has proven to be easy to manipulate in order to serve the needs of the government. What scares both parties spitless is an internet over which they have no control. Until now.

 

The corporations provide useful cover, and are more than happy to provide support for this project. They have something to gain from this legislation, and they also serve to give the whole thing credibility. But they don't want this half as much as our government does right now- what with congress's approval rating at 11% (lowest in history), a major election looming and things ready to blow up both at home and abroad. The last thing they want or need is an independent source of information, available to everyone.

 

The government wants this so bad they can taste it... and are prepaired to do whatever must be done to get it. Even if it means ticking off the rest of the world. What can we do? I truly don't know... but I think we're in too deep to vote ourselves out.

 

Rant off.

This is exactly my take on it. Think of all the bills we wouldn't have even known about! They already ram them through as quick as they can. If they can strike off the head of the independent media outlets, it'll be smooth sailing, and we'll have a lot more in common with the Soviets than their motorcycles.

And it's basically the same here in Europe to... Makes me wonder who's really running the show.
