Later today, I'm calling my Congressman about SOPA and PIPA. What you do is on your conscience.

Try calling both your senators as well: one of these bills is in the Senate.

Idiot sponsored one of them....now backing off. XD

Why o why can't we get legislation that gives us more freedom amd more liberty? I suspect that's because someone cant make money or get more power or hire more govt staff....-sighs-

There are actually two bills: SOPA is the House version, while PIPA is in the Senate. I made sure I referred to the appropriate bill when contacting my Representative and Senators.

I mentioned both to my Congressman's staffer; in case it ends up in Congress' hands.

I signed an online petition. I'm pretty sure my Congressman will vote against it.

Writing is the most effective, calling them next best. Emails are less effective and online petitions the least effective.

*Sigh*.

Wrote mine. Posted a token blackout thing on my DeviantART, plus a blog post there. Cross=posted that to Facebook sort of, since I can link there and it previews the page.

I can't do much, and a lot of what I do is with tongue firmly planted in cheek, but I try.
