"A recent survey shows that 13% of Americans are satisfied with the job their government is doing. That being said, here comes SOPA." Kevin Pereira, Attack of the Show (November 15, 2011)
It claims to be a champion of the people.
Here to support the common good,
To get everyone on its side.
But it has its missiles aimed at us,
At our cultural centers.
It has laser sights aimed at Google,
And tanks pointed at Facebook.
It has a bulls-eye on Youtube
And a stealth bomber over Twitter.
Torpedoes are locked on Tumblr
And C4s are strapped to ProBoards.
They also have nukes ready to strike

Why You Should Support SOPA!For all those opposing SOPA, please read this! SOPA is a wonderful idea! You just don't understand. It gives corporations the right to take down any website that infringes on their rights, and hurts their business in any way.Why You Should Support SOPA!1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
For example, a corporation that makes stero cables is planning to take down Ebay and Craig's List, and similar sites, as soon as SOPA passes. These sites are hurting their business, and the business of other companies. By allowing people to sell used unwanted items online, and giving people the option to buy these items cheaper, rather than paying full price, they are hurting thousands of businesses.

We spilled blood for this soil... Blood that has been used to destroy our liberty.
Our government will reject this new law, immediately... or suffer the Wrath of the People
For years, our government has made it look like they fight for Freedom and Justice.
Corrupted filth... In a land where our voices founded this Nation. Filth that are now trying to silence us.
In a land where Fathers, Sons, and Brothers now spill blood for a nation where we are being oppressed

When Megan opened her eyes, all she could see was darkness. There was nothing, not even a small glimpse of light. "Where are we- what the?!" Megan noticed that her arms were bound together and that there was no floor beneath her. She tried moving around, but found that when she did, she would begin swaying back and forth. "No I don't want to wear the sailor suit " said a soft voice. Megan immediately recognized it as Samantha's who was still partially knocked out. "Yes, put my earmuffs on the cookie " she whispered.
"Sammy wake up!" Megan called. The dozing girl quickly snapped out of her dream and began squirming around,

Well, there are a lot of us.

We have our own weapon.
A weapon many time more powerful.

You're not our master.

If you start using that whip you'll be nowhere close to a boss even.
You may even be lying still in a grave.
We're not your slaves.
We wont stand for this.
I thought you hated Mr. China for not letting his people sing.
I see your new whip is similar to his.
You're setting your self from trouble
For you'll take away our fear of punishment or death
There is no greater pain then not being allowed to sing
No punishment, not even death, will stop us

to wonder why
Only yesterday things had been a dream
Pouring out her heart's content
An artist with the pure intent
Soon nothing will be as it seems
the black decay
Our lives lived being lined in 'teams'
People, imperfect, choosing right or wrong
All because of a name or a song
Sincerest hearts are crushed today
there's no freedom
Oppressed, obsessive, no escaping decay
Pills can't replace the artist's doubt
Alone all vanished, for there was no way out
Bronies Vs. SOPA - PLEASE READHow SOPA could kill the brony subcultureBronies Vs. SOPA - PLEASE READ1 year ago in Editorial More Like This
By Nicholas Hägen
With regards to fan-artists and writers of fanfiction being tried as copyright-infringing criminals under SOPA for mere depiction of characters they did not create, I am most concerned for all the bronies on the internet. The brony subculture revolves largely around fan-created content derived from the fictional universe of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, ranging from the usual fanart, fanfiction and fan-created pony characters, to techno, metal or retro video game-style remixes of songs and musical numbers from the show, to humorous Youtube Poop-esque video remi
SOPA Seriously? HR3261SOPA or the Stop Online Piracy Act is a piece of dangerously ill-conceived legislation being considered by the United States Congress. I've read the news on the proposed SOPA legislation and the text of the Act itself. I recommend researching it for yourself at http://www.eff.org/ and http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-108hr3261ih/pdf/BILLS-108hr3261ih.pdf. Sign a petition to stop it before it's too late.

Please consider negative consequences of passing Protect-IP and the Stop Online Piracy Act before you send the bill toward President Obama's way, and also take time to think about what could happen if you were no longer a part of Congress nor the Senate. The best way to think about what could happen to you is to take time and listen to a song sung by the Williams Brothers called "Sweep Around" and afterwards, take six months to mind your own business and tend to the damage Congress has already done, and six months to leave the common peopl

You have come to fight as free men, and free men you are.

Fight? Against that? No, we will run; and we will live.
Aye, fight and you may die. Run and you'll live -- at least a while.
