HR 3261, also called the “SOPA” bill, will make radical changes to the freedom that you now experience on the Internet. In a nutshell, it will take power away from the people and hand it over to a small group of powerful entities, like Rupert Murdoch and others of his ilk.

Supporters of this bill say that it is intended to curtail industrial-level copyright infringement in places like China, and that the new law would never be used against individuals. If that is the case, the bill should be rewritten to reflect that. At the end of the day, only what’s written counts.

  • In reading rencet news and blogs re the state of health care reform, I am astonished and concerned the idea of reform/regulation/cost containment/ is being so diluted that it will be meaningless. If the bills don’t have the teeth they need, I (and many others) favor single payer say, a reformed medicare gradually offered to ALL, in ten year increments. That would give the insurance companies time to find other ways to make money and get used to the idea.We have to have health care reform, but we have to do it right.
