SOPA and PIPA Protest

I decided not to black out my web page in protest of SOPA and PIPA. I find petitioning Congress about legislation to be even more useless than voting. I have written many letters to my Congress critters over the years, and gotten many form letters in return. Some of them were even on the topic I wrote about.

I expressed my opinion on this protest in two tweets this morning:

1: @elizadushku Obama drone kills as he wants, and NDAA authorizes no-trial caging on an accusation. You think a day of dark Internet matters?

2: @doctorow This SOPA-PIPA stuff is all about begging Congress. They just passed NDAA 2012, by huge majority. No begging. They need to hang.
