The Prez And The Rev

Madame L wants to share this short clip with all of her Dear and Gentle Readers:

This is why Madame L supported the movement to block the House and Senate from progressing further with their ill-conceived, corporate-sponsored, slush-fund-paid-for, and lobbyist-inspired proposals "Stop Online Privacy Act" (SOPA) and Protect IP Act (PIPA).

Imagine a world in which Madame L couldn't have uploaded this video for all her readers to enjoy with her, on pain of some TV news network saying the footage belonged only to them. 

Imagine a world in which by uploading even something she knew to be free of copyright protection, Madame L could get herself and her blog and even her internet service provider in trouble because some government bigwig did not know that, and decided to go after her.

It just would not be a fair world. Thanks to all the others who called, emailed, and sent letters to their Senators and Representatives about this issue.

It's not too late to add your voice to the others. Numbers are all that count for those elected representatives of ours. 

Hugs and Kisses,

Madame L
