I dont know if anyone has heard about this bill, but if its approved. Youtube and Twitter are history. As well as the internet itself.

Meh, the internet's only useful for two things: Porn, and buying stuff you can't get in stores. Not that I look at porn.

Hmm, it looks that the "Wikileaks affair" has gone too far.
Ironically while the proyect was submitted by members of the Democrat Party, most Republicans are supporting the bill.

Sounds like King George to me:mad: I'm sending this to The Guy From Boston and see what he says.

If this gets passed, well, I guess Thad's prediction that Youtube's time was up five years ago will finally be in effect.

They have been trying to pull stunts like this for years. And if this does happen, I dont know what to say to congress other than it wont be nice. What did Thad theorize anyways?

^I don't remember the specifics (it was on his blog before he moved to his current server, with a lot of his old posts deleted from the face of the earth somehow), but I do remember it having a title like "Time's Up," a Carl Barks cover with it, one of the sentences being "It was fun while it lasted," a brief story on some of the comments he got when he had his first channel, and how maybe people can actually work to get the material they wanted instead of waiting for people to hand it to them.

The government can't get rid of the Internet seeing as how several Americans do their taxes online now.

Are they just asking for our country to be taken over by Canada?

Some one took this article seriously? Wow.

I hardly doubt the U.S. Government has any jurisdiction to shut down or even police the world wide web, since you know only a fraction of it is even owned by this country(if you can even say that we do own some of it).

I already know about this and to be safe, I already left a message to my senate. They answer back and will vote no on the bill (I know, I know, but it makes me less worried).
