Going Dark

It’s been a while since I felt the need to post a blog. A lot has happened since Thanksgiving. We have a wonderful government run by the outrageously left-wing president that puts the rights of the American people above all else…unless we’re talking about holding said Americans without trial indefinitely if the President happens to believe they’re terrorists. He’s promised not to use these powers, but he’s ok with letting the next nut-job to occupy the office have them. Good job buddy. Let’s not forget that the current popular Republican candidates are lead by a SciFi cultist corporate weasel, two creepy homophobes, a scummy fat wife cheating career liar, and Ron Paul. Now we have this SOPA bullshit trying to get through the congress. What a heinous bunch of hamfisted non-sense that is. Let’s give corporate America the right to indiscriminately shut down websites they find offensive. What board of directors of ANY company would you trust to tell you what you can and can’t see on the web? Name one you’d leave alone in a room with your child, let alone your dog. Are we China, suddenly? I know a lot of these corporations would prefer we were China. Hell of a lot easier to screw over the American workforce if we were. Who am I kidding, they’re screwing us using our own democracy and sacred cow capitalism. Meh. I’m getting off subject here.

Tomorrow, if all goes well and I’m able to make it happen, my blog will go dark in support of the SOPA protest. Not like I get a lot of traffic on this site, but I’m doing it anyway. At some point we Americans need to stand up to the endless flood of assholes trying to bury our rights in order to protect multinational corporate profits. It’s bad enough these “people” are now legally able to buy our next President. In the end I’m sure this will all be a lost cause. I have very little faith that the people in this country will make the right decisions. I mean, shit, 50% of us still believe in angels! If Rick Santorum can say he thinks legalized gay marriage will lead to human/animal unions, they I can say religious people believe in dragons and unicorns and extraterrestrial beings that give us fancy planets populated by 72 underage virgins when we die. Sounds legit.

Ok, lights out in a few hours…

      I just read that the Whitehouse told them all to start over, but said the new bills must include blocking other countries’ sites if they allow piracy. So…we differentiate ourselves from China how?
