SOPA & PIPA and continued VIGILANCE

162 million+  people agree: KNOWLEDGE MUST STAY FREE. 

WOW.  Pay attention lawmakers. Pay attention  MPAA...etc. Your greed will NOT be tolerated. You are already setting up your retaliatory actions. You are no longer contributing to politicians who had the rightful audacity to oppose you.  That is your right. Well.... I need you to consider this...What would happen to you if say...1/4 of that 162 million people who made their choice and voice heard decided to NEVER again buy any of your products?  Think about it. Yes, it is quite possible, and believe me, it is doable.

YOU ARE NOT INDISPENSABLE

We are staying alert and vigilant. The battle is won, but the war is not over yet.
