How did Sen. Chambliss receive a negative donation? Did HE donate some petty cash TO Time Warner?
I-am-confused.

SOPA is intended to protect @$$hole liberal entertainers.

All Franken is an @$$hole liberal entertainer.

Any questions?

That is what`s wrong with the U.S. You can legally bribe people to vote the way you want. That should not be allowed to happen. They want to take them to diner, fine, that`s maybe a few hundred dollars. But outright handing them a check and saying vote for this, is wrong.

You should make the poster have some cross-hairs on the people on the left... So maybe some nutjob will start picking them off.

All four Republican presidential candidates came out against SOPA, too. So, I guess we`ll ALL be voting Republican now, right?

Why am I not surprised that Montana has not chosen a side? Our government officials are of strong belief that these things don`t apply to us and therefor don`t need our attention. I hate this old ass state.

Btw, I`m not surprised that my Senator `Dick` Durbin (D) is for this, he`s been a total screw up embarrassment for Illinois for decades now.

The only county he won, last election, was Cook county, aka Chicago. The same mob ran Chicago that Rahm Emanual, Barrack Obama, Richard M. Daley, Jesse Jackson Jr., Carol Mosley Braun, Jimmy DeLeo, Angelo ‘Skip’ Fosco Saviano, and others all tied to mob boss Johnny DiFronzo.

DiFronzo `Owns` the Chicago unions, everything from liquor to trucking, sanitation to AFSCME (the police union). The mob has it`s hands in Hollywood too, and they`d love to get their grubby hands on the internet as well.

It is totally predictable that Lieberman is for it and Blumenthal too. At least Cortney is against it.

@AEimiller Yes the idea is fine. Piracy is a major problem. But quoting The Oatmeal, this is like dealing with a tiger escaping from the zoo by taking a flamethrower to kittens. The problem isn`t with piracy it`s about how they can immediately shut down sites if they might be infringing copyright, without due process of law. That doesn`t seem very fair.

The idea of what SOPA is trying to do is fair. They might need to makes some changes here and there, but they are just trying to get the money to the people that earned it. Yes, the internet is going to be alittle less fun from now on, and you might have to pay for music, but its fair. Facebook will still be here, Youtube will still be here, wikipedia, all the big legal sights will still be around. Thats enough crying people, settle down.

Why is that a good thing? I would be annoyed if my political representatives hadn`t even formed an opinion on a high-profile political matter. It`s their entire job.

There`s a Senator from Rhode Island named "Whitehouse" ??? How has he never considered running for president if for nothing else than the sheer novelty of the name gimmick he would so clearly be able to use?

Also, I looked through this like a billion times and I still can only find one person (Sen. Ben Cardin) from Maryland. How`s that possible?

I agree Malakamike. Just making a point that the internet, for the most part, is a liberal medium, and liberals want to kill it. Ironic.

the thing that gets me is, on the supporter side, 1st 5 people, they received over $2 million in contribution from those corporations that want to see SOPA. Seems a little counter productive to me. I know $2mill isn`t a lot in the grand scheme of things but it makes you think.

@auburnjunky you realize theres a bunch of both on each side right? People like you have to stop taking something we should all get behind and make it into a two sided battle about some other BS, both parties suck and they both support and are agianst different things. Someone is an idiot aren`t they? ;)(See what I did there)

They have a chart that shows how support changed from yesterdays blackout to today. I would have posted this as a picture but the size is too large. 15 people dropped their support. That is still not enough.

I just realized that Al Franken really did get elected as a senator! In the same state as Jesse was Governor! That makes Minnesota as ignorant as California! Actors are idiots and DO NOT belong in politics! They can`t even function normally in society, and then you put them in charge? (shakes his head and walks away)

37 pro PIPA Senator`s vs 21 opposed.

SOPA isn`t likely going anywhere. PIPA....?

And the numbers are on that site. Money received from the entertainment industry during the 2010 elections.

Also, those numbers apparently represent how much money has been "donated" to said sentator from either the entertainment industry or from the internet.
