Default ACTA has been signed...

We're screwed. Welcome to land of Big Brother. I've heard the version of it that made it through was much less harsh. Still, the Polish are protesting the hell out of it:

Polish protests

Damn, and with as much press as the Polish were getting over the protests I thought, this will fall just like SOPA/PIPA -- with everyone being like "uhh... no, we agree it is .... eh... bad."
sad face for being sad.

And by doing so removed what little credibility he had left after the feeding frenzy he allowed on Wall Street with our tax dollars.

I don't know why Republicans are so afraid of him. Must be jealousy; only they are supposed to be control freaks, how dare a Democrat usurp their persona.

The problem was all of the secrecy involved. Had there not been leaks, we wouldn't have know about it at all. While Obama signed it, it wasn't signed by the European Union till this month. Obama just recently went on Google+ to ask that Hollywood and the tech companies come together for a "compromise" on SOPA. What a bunch of shit. I swear, I don't vote, but I'm think about going to just to vote Republican. I don't care how crazy or stupid the candidate is, crazy is far better than insidious and malicious every time.

Hopefully, the Polish get something going over in Europe. Europeans protest just about everything that doesn't rub them the right way and they get good and violent about it. Something I wish Americans would do for once. Maybe politicians would listen.

Please, if you do nothing else, VOTE! A big part of our problem is not enough people vote, we need everyone to get out and voice their opinion at the polls whether it is for or against Obama, that is how the system is supposed to work.
