“I remain confident that the ISPs – including the cable industry, which is the largest association of ISPs – would not support the legislation if its enactment created the problems that opponents of this provision suggest. Nonetheless, this is in fact a highly technical issue, and I am prepared to recommend we give it more study before implementing it.” -Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.)
What this basically says is that Senator Leahy feels that it’s not his duty to know the outcome of a bill HE AUTHORED. That responsibility instead lies with those who are tasked with implementing it. And if those people are fine with it—even though they represent the side that stands to gain the most as well as the side that has to deal with implementing it—then why can’t all Americans be happy with it? I mean, why don’t we just cut out the middleman and just let the telecoms and cable networks write the legislation too? At least that way companies like the MPAA don’t have to get their hands dirty while they’re using you as a puppet to write anti-freedom bullshit for them?
I’d say that we should have an Amendment to the Constitution saying that you can’t trounce on the internet in any capacity, but you’d all fuck it up or ignore it anyway.
Why doesn’t anyone give a shit about FREEDOM anymore? You know, that thing that 90% of us moved here in search of? No amount of money/safety is worth losing freedom. I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of Jefferson, Franklin, founding fathers, or anyone who wrote the book on freedom, but it’s not something to be traded away.
All we do in this country is allow these cunts to slowly and gently fuck us until our rights are gone quicker than this douchebag finishes. And they don’t even have the common courtesy to fucking speak to us afterward.
