Why is it that these "internet freedom" issues keep coming up? In Texas the state legislature is only in session about 6 months every two years. Perhaps, if our elected "lawmakers" weren't in Washington so much, they would quite making laws trying to restrict internet freedom.

It keeps coming up because the MPAA mafia has poured millions of dolars into the coffers of our representitives. They were "the" major reason for PIPA and SOPA and are currently trying to screw us with backdoor secret deals with the up and coming trade agreement.

Hell I even saw an article the other day of how the department of homeland security is now getting involved with possible movie piracy at theaters (a couple of officers snached a guy out of his seat and grilled him because he was wearing google glasses and they thought he was recording the movie). great way to use our tax money  ::). Wish I could use the federal gov as my private police force.....

On this one I will go with both you and Harry but you have to remember that Reid is a snake; a snake without rattles, so keep an eye on him!
