Skeptic Conservative Going on Strike Against SOPA


((The protest is over, but the issue is not! Bill comes to a vote on the 24th!))

You can officially consider the Skeptic Conservative, Imperial-Gaming, and Totalwartracker to be endorsing the protest of the Stop Online Piracy Act as well as the Protect Intellectual Property Act currently threatening to make their way through congress.

For the entirety of January 18th (and some of the 17th and 19th) my blog will go entirely DARK, in case the theme didn’t make the point.

Please understand, and if you’re looking for my content PLEASE come back later (content is now back up). I am not retiring. I’m not going away! But I am wanting to call attention to a vastly important issue. Now, some reading!

Visit this site to contact your congressmen!

Here’s PJMedia’s analysis of both bills we need to keep an eye on!

A nice piece of analysis on pressing need for Americans to step up and get informed. Protest campaigns shouldn’t -have- to help you figure out who your congressmen are, you should know this already!! I’ll have words about this later.

In probably one of the only times I will ever link Huffington Post (aka HuffPo) on my website, Glenn Beck aired a great segment dissecting and criticizing SOPA as well as PIPA. Watch the clip here.

Apparently the Motion Picture Association thinks the internet is a bunch of drama queens (nevermind they’ve been traditionally pushing the more heinous copyright ‘protections’)

User ‘Bennet Randle Dodson’ sums it up perfectly:

lol, this is the biggest load of bullshit I have ever read

Please contact your congressmen or your relevant political leaders about these bills and why they suck so much. Thank you.
