Not everyone in FM is an adult.
SOPA should not be allowed to come into effect. Internet is not anyone's private property, its like a global conscious in digital format. How can anyone even think about censoring our consciousness ? Almost all US policies make me feel like they are squeezing the Capitalistic Lemon too much... after a while, it starts tasting bad...if you know what I mean.

That's kind of the problem. Without knowing better, I was unable to tell if kaiokenred was a boy talking about things that he has no real knowledge of, or an adult with incendiary ideas. While I think SOPA/PIPA are very bad legislative bills, I do not think that violence is the solution if they pass. My dad put a handgun in my hand at age 7 and had me squeeze off a .357 round into a milk jug filled with water as a lesson about how dangerous weapons are. The lesson was learned. In university, I spent two semesters looking at crime scene photos in a class taught by the investigator of those murders. These experiences, along with some others, have taught me that you never use that kind of talk lightly, particularly if a person has never seen the effects of violence. Since kaikoenred is a boy, he should talk about boy things and enjoy being a boy. He'll have PLENTY of time to deal with the ugliness of the current state of things when he's a man.
Greetings and Peace, all
Extremes are bad. SOPA, the so-called "Patriot" Act, and many other laws and proposed laws are bad exactly because they are extreme.
Peace Abdul Hadi,
They (Patriot Act and NDAA) are also bad because they go against the very principles that America was founded upon. The Declaration of Independence states that all men are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights. ALL MEN. Not just US citizens. Habeas Corpus and Due Process should not be treated like hindrances to justice, they are the best way to arrive at justice, whether the accused is an American citizen or Osama bin Laden. I do not believe SOPA will pass either.
