  •  I said it was a bad bill (0+ / 0-)

    I did not mention Obama.

    Just because it'w written by Republicans, it doesn't mean it has a hidden agenda behind it.

    The committee report isn't available on Thomas. Thus, the changes to the bill that it needs are not available, either. I.e., parts of the bill are probably classified. This is what makes it bad, not the actual content.

    I didn't say that he bill wouldn't be merged with McCain's crap. I said it wouldn't pass in the Senate.

    I didn't say not to take ACTION. I did, in fact, take action. I wrote my Senator. I said that writing a letter that goes overboard won't get you anywhere.

    So what makes you think I didn't research the bill? What makes you think it's all about eroding personal privacy and freedom?

    None of these over the top things are true. Nothing in these bills even comes close to these claims. If your research involves accepting clains from others simply because you know who they are, then you've made a big mistake. The bill itself is the only source you can trust. Beyond that, it's hype.

      Yes you did:
      But it might make for a typical right wing political talking point. Obama wants his Indonesian spies to take your guns away, perhaps. Again, really stupid. Par for the course.
      ...& I note again that you were the first to mention him in this comment thread, whereas the body of the diary didn't mention him at all.

      Next item...

      I was just as critical of SOPA & PIPA when a small army of establishment Democrats were foursquare behind them. A bad bill is a bad bill.
      I didn't say that he bill wouldn't be merged with McCain's crap. I said it wouldn't pass in the Senate.
      But it's not in the Senate; it's in the House. If you're saying that you think the Senate will vote down its version (the McCain bill), great — but that's not the issue. (If, on the other hand, you're playing a hypothetical game where the Rogers bill was the McCain bill, then why are you wasting time?)
      I didn't say not to take ACTION. I did, in fact, take action. I wrote my Senator.
      Bully for you. That's all I'm asking.

      •  Do you realize that we're both against this bill? (0+ / 0-)

        If that's all you're asking, then why piss all over my opinion?

        I'm just not buying the hair-on-fire game.
