  • SOPA is coal in the stocking for anyone who uses the internet.

    I'm gonna clean up this town!" That's what I think of when I think of SOPA - the "Stop Online Piracy Act". Over-zealous, naive cowboys in the movies who get the bad guy. Only in the movies. To be clear, I think stealing is evil, evil, evil. If you steal, I'm wagging my finger at you right now! But, SOPA is a lot more than giving the Motion Picture Association of America, it's supporters, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and the U.S. Justice Department broad powers to come into one's home or business - whether they're a citizen of the U.S. or not - and turn them into a criminal.
