Before you add me, keep this shit in mind:

I'm opinionated as fuck.
I swear like I'm getting paid for it.
I play and talk about WoW. A lot.
I have no problems unleashing TMI on my friends.

From the flist: 

Spread the word, even you're not a US citizen, it is important for everyone!! It easy to do and it can change everything. More info by clicking on the banner.

Website Blocking

The government can order service providers to block websites for infringing links posted by any users.

Risk of Jail for Ordinary Users

It becomes a felony with a potential 5 year sentence to stream a copyrighted work that would cost more than $2,500 to license, even if you are a totally noncommercial user, e.g. singing a pop song on Facebook.

Chaos for the Internet

Thousands of sites that are legal under the DMCA would face new legal threats. People trying to keep the internet more secure wouldn't be able to rely on the integrity of the DNS system.

Read this analysis from boing-boing.net

Get on the phone and call your representative. Express your disapproval. Tell him or her exactly how you feel, and that you don't support this. Tell your friends to call their representatives, their Congressperson, and complain. Mention that you are a registered voter that takes your civic responsibility seriously and that you will use that vote to express your feelings about this.


“We support the bill’s stated goals — providing additional enforcement tools to combat foreign ‘rogue’ websites that are dedicated to copyright infringement or counterfeiting,” the Internet companies wrote in Tuesday’s letter. “Unfortunately, the bills as drafted would expose law-abiding U.S. Internet and technology companies to new uncertain liabilities, private rights of action and technology mandates that would require monitoring of websites.”  The chamber-led coalition in support of the bill includes Walmart, Eli Lilly & Co. and Netflix.

Google and other opponents of the legislation argue that restricting the Internet in the U.S. sets a bad international precedent and that the language defines infringing too broadly.

Keeping this entry open with non-friends comments turned on. This is an open RP post for anyone on my friends list who wants to participate. Bring in your pups and get to know everyone. Or whatever. This will probably be mostly me and [livejournal.com profile] galbadia, but I would love to see other people joining in. :D

Fandom characters, OCs, whatever. Anything goes.

Threads, conversations, etc.

Have fun. Be nice.

I got this email from my mom this morning. I don't normally do these email forward things, but this is one thing that I think needs to be put out there and is something that I care very strongly about. My mom has a pitbull, and she's one of the sweetest and kindest dogs I've ever met. Zoey was abused, too, and used basically as a puppy mill. She was forced to breed and have litter after litter after litter for a dog fighting ring, but was thankfully rescued and now lives with my mom, 9 year old sister, another dog, two cats, a fish, and a rat, and loves and protects every one of them. Do not let the breed of a dog determine your opinion of it. Please vote for this amazing dog, and watch the video. If you have the opportunity, go out and do something about it. Go volunteer at an animal shelter or pitbull rescue or something.

Vote For Gunny - Get Gunny to the Rose Bowl Parade - PLEASE - for all
the Pitties


Gunny was a "bait" dog in a dog fighting kennel. He lost a leg, was
starved, body mutilated and left for dead. Now, he is healthy and in
a national photo contest where the winner gets to be in the Tournament
of Roses Parade with international TV coverage, along with all sorts
of other publicity opportunities, free food for the rescue shelter,

Voting ends on November 30. This thing is bigger than Gunny. If a 3-
legged, mutilated and scarred Gunny makes it to the Rose Bowl and can
call attention to the abuse toward what used to be an American icon
(Petey in The Little Rascals) as well as abuse toward dogs and animals
in general, then our efforts will be well rewarded. Need inspiration?
See Gunny's video. Together - the dog and animal world can make a
difference in how the world views Pit Bulls and other bully breeds who
receive a death sentence at their very sight.

Thank you so much on behalf of Gunny and the underdogs.

Vote for Gunny's photo:
