DEFEAT OPPRESSION!


I've blacked out my web site today in support of defeating the SOPA legislation in Congress right now.

The sad thing is, as the U.S. Government is a government of the 1%, by the 1%, and for the 1%, it is highly unlikely that we will be able to get Congress to listen.

In fact, they really don’t listen to anyone unless your net worth is more than what 90% of the American public makes in a year.

I find it interesting that last year, the Republicans began referring to the 1% as the Productive Class. They are not productive! They don’t produce product. They certainly don’t produce jobs—their pet name for workers is “worthless assets.” They don’t produce ideas. Nor to they create. If anything, Wall Street proved they are parasites, sucking the assets out of America and pocketing them. And they don’t want these conditions changed, so they are the ones paying our Congressmen to keep the status quo so they can continue sucking the lifeblood of productivity out of America.

The true productive class are the people who truly make things! They make products, they make artwork, they produce wealth!

The best thing we can do is remember that this is an election year. The last voice we have is our vote. I suggest we clean house VOTE OUT every incumbent congressman that is up for election.
Then maybe Congress will remember the other 99% of the citizens of America.


I love what the guys at fark.com did for their version of the protest: they whited out their site in support of SOPA!


Here is a very good explanation of what is going on with SOPA.
