Joe Biden makes a GREAT 'Pinky' to our Obama 'Brain'. "Trying to take over the world"
Even if those two weren't in office, some other politician would've tried to pass a bill just like it.
Anyway, SOPA and PIPA are shelved for now, but another bill was rolled out: H.R 1981
Each time you use a credit card, each time you read your bank statement, all of your IP information and your search history will be required by your ISP to be stored for 18 months at all times.
This pill is being spun as an anti Child Pornography bill, and its likely most will believe it as such and it'll be passed.
There's also the Megaupload site being shut down. Despite PIPA and SOPA being pushed back, they still want to take someone down with them. Its sad that people who weren't sharing illegal content got swept away as well. I'm scared for Mediafire- a place that I use also, since some sites are already running for the hills in the face of being taken down by the US Gov't.
