Two bills that are up for voting in the Senate next week will seriously hinder the sites I love the most. SOPA and PIPA have been written with the intent to eliminate pirated music and movies, but the fact is, several other sites would suffer as well (eBay, twitter, facebook, paypal, blogs, wikipedia, etc, etc...).
Take the time to educate yourself on how SOPA and PIPA would affect you. Check out this infographic at AmericanCensorship.org, and sign the petition at Google. Wikipedia has a great article explaining the details of the acts, as well, and you can sign their petition here.
Exercise your freedom of speech. So often, even us passionate ones, sit back and expect others to be the voice for our cause, or think that we don't offer enough of an impact... and the fact is, we're absolutely wrong. We have to stand up to get what we want. We need to do it now. I signed the petition (several of them, actually), so odds are, you enjoy blogging and social media like the rest of us, if you're reading my banter... so what are you waiting on??
