Between the NDAA and SOPA, it’s apparently Crappy Idea Week here in the capital. But when is it not, amirite?! *Clown horns, bow-tie spin, big hook from stage right.*
SOPA is the Stop Online Piracy Act, which thinks that censorship will somehow stop online piracy. It’s supported by Hollywood and the recording industry. The major problem is that it will break the internet. Like, all of it. Folks on both sides of the ideological spectrum agree that this is a terrible bill that ignores, or doesn’t understand, the basic nature of the internet and freedom of expression. And it’s worth repeating, this bill WOULD BREAK THE INTERNET. We need that! I yell at people there!
