Will SOPA End The Internet As We Know It? Does The Manager's Amendment Protect Citizens Free Speech?

If SOPA is passed will there be extensive, crippling internet censorship?  According to Opie's son SOPA will cause massive internet censorship.  Last night I learned of the Manager's Amendment which was added to the bill.  Does this amendment address the concerns that citizens have about this anti-piracy legislation indiscriminately targeting American citizens First Amendment rights on the internet?   The ACLJ seems to think that the Manager's Amendment to SOPA addresses this issue. Our congress critters are way too willing to give up citizens liberties in the name of "protection" or "safety".  David Gorodyansky of Forbes says that SOPA is the "equivalent of the Great Firewall of China here at home." 


Here is a video on the internet censorship bill, SOPA.

Considering they are already blocking sites without due process, I have little faith they will stop. They will find a way around any bill. It is the Obama way. They must get control of the Internet at all costs.

Brilliant post, T. Better graphics than I have. Mind if I copy/paste? Much easier to read. We must get the word out. Thanks for your help!

bunkerville,

This bill goes many steps too far - at least without the Manager's Amendment and even with it I'm not sure. Obama's a tyrannical schmuck.
