Wikipedia will globally blackout at midnight tonight eastern time in protest of SOPA and PIPA

If SOPA goes through, I am convinced it will be the beginning of the end of freedom as we know it in the USA.It would change the fundamental inner workings of the internet and not in a good way. If you are against SOPA, please try to get off your asses and go sign a petition or something. I called and spoke with my congressman personally and signed a petition. Here is a link if you want to know more about SOPA:

Won't happen Meerkat! Obama has officially come out against it!

On CNN just now (4:25pm eastern time) they said it will go down. I just now checked their website header again, and it says:  "In less 9 hours, the English Wikipedia will be blacked out globally to protest SOPA and PIPA.

So what are you talking about. Where did you hear that?" Do you think he will get them to back down?

@ Robert - Oh wait. Do you mean Obama won't let SOPA go through? If that is the case, then why is Wikipedia doing this?

Yeah!!! SOPA is dead. The people have been heard. Democracy in action. I love it.

It's dead for the moment. It will probably be back, in some nasty form or other. Too many politicians in the pockets of MPAA and RIAA for it to stay dead.

@ Barry - Yeah, I hear you. I got an e-mail from my senator saying he withdrew his co-sponsorship until the resolution of outstanding issues are resolved. I'm guessing that might be politician speak for "We'll get you and your little dog too Dorothy, just you wait."

Well this is what I will say right back to them "putem up putem up!" lol

@ Atheist Exile - Hi! I can just hear what politicians are thinking "Oh my God. People can actually wield power through the internet against the system. The whole of civilization is in danger. Must stop liberty!"
