We NEED to "STOP SOSA and PIPA!"
YOU CAN STOP THIS, TOO!  KEEP READING AND AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST THERE IS A LINK "YOU" CAN GO TO TO READ WHAT CONGRESS WANTS TO DO THEN A LINK "YOU CAN SIGN" TO HELP STOP THIS!  
I am joining in with ALL OTHER BLOGS, WEBSITES, ETC., AND "NOT" POSTING ANYTHING ALONG WITH THE ENTIRE WORLD WIDE WEB

Another GREAT article on this subject is http://sopablackout.org/learnmore/ 
According to PCWORLD which is a GREAT article, PLEASE GO THERE AND READ IT!!  Click on the words PCWORLD. Also, the next 2 links are EXCELLENT links FROM PCWORLD that take you DIRECTLY 'TO' THE BILLS THEMSELVES, WORD FOR WORD, BY THE U.S. GOVERNMENT AS TO WHAT THESE BILLS ARE.  PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THEM

  SOPA AND PIPA   

I AM JOINING IN ON THIS PROTEST FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS!. 

We CANNOT ALLOW "CONGRESS" to take away our rights of freedom pertaining to the Internet!  The Internet is the MOST IMPORTANT TOOL WE HAVE!  DON'T ALLOW CONGRESS TO PUT THEIR HANDS INSIDE THIS RIGHT OF OURS AS WELL!  CONGRESS ALWAYS WANTS THEIR HANDS IN EVERYTHING THAT BENEFITS "US"!
"OUR" INTERNET COULD LOOK LIKE THIS:

PLEASE TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY!!!

  1. I totally agree Laurie! I think it's infringement upon our first amendment rights! I didn't go all out and blackout my blog but I did add a button to it.

  3. Hi Ana!
    Thanks for being supportive of the Internet Boycott against SOPA! I really appreciate you putting a button on your Blog!
    In case anyone else out there does NOT know about this, you can access my post at this link: http://www.lauriehere.blogspot.com/2012/01/laurie-here-contemporary-fiction-and.html
    Copy and paste it into your Browser and "read all about it!"
    Congress wants to infringe upon our Internet RIGHTS! Why? Because it is something they are NOT involved in! They WANT THEIR FINGERS IN ANYTHING THEIR FINGERS ARE NOT IN!
    Texas Republican Lamar Smith thought up of this 'brainchild'! We have HIM to thank for this bill of which they are voting upon whether or NOT to PASS IT ON JANUARY 24th!
    If you "ALL" would PLEASE come to my link, and at the BOTTOM there is a link you can click on to sign that PETITION AGAINST this bill going through!
    Again, there is SO much to it to explain it ALL here, which is why I am redirecting you BACK to my Blog. Read about it, check out the links, and PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION at the link at the bottom of my post! OR, WE stand to lose EVERYTHING there is on the Internet! We will even lose the ability to advertise BOOKS at Amazon and Barnes and Noble, or Book Depository, or WHEREVER YOU LINK TO SELL BOOKS AT! YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DO THIS ANYMORE! (If you earn any commission off of any sales.) Oh, there is SO MUCH MORE to this bill this bill than 'just' that! ANYTIME a Bill passes they ALWAYS ADD TO IT WITHOUT OUR KNOWLEDGE!
    We do NOT WANT THE GOVERNMENT IN OUR FREEDOM OF THE INTERNET!!!!
    This is SO important, it DESERVES YOUR ATTENTION!
    Thanks Ana, for leaving this comment! This gives me another chance to adddress EVERYONE! We NEED to be against this bill!
    Again, come on over to the above link and read!
    One example: Michigan used to collect Sales Tax of 6% up to a certain amount and that was it. Last year they changed it (without our knowledge!) and wanted us to have SAVED 'ALL' OUR RECEIPTS and pay tax up to the penny on it! Do you know HOW HARD it was to find ALL my receipts? VERY HARD! Once a Bill is through, it inevitably gets changed for the worse! It becomes a living NIGHTMARE!
    I also believe this is JUST THE FIRST STEP of the Government SNEAKING INTO THE INTERNET! They have plans for MORE once 'this' Bill gets through! They ALWAYS DO!
    This is why it's SO important! WRITE TO YOUR CONGRESS PEOPLE! These sites make it SO easy! THEY have the letter, YOU fill out the forms!
    Again, thanks Ana!
