SOPA- I CAN'T HEAR YOU by ChadRocco SOPA- I CAN'T HEAR YOU by ChadRocco
Edit:

Well first of all I want to thank :iconarichy: and :iconadigunpolack: for the suggestions and :icondomism: for featuring it.

Second, I just happy that we all raised enough awareness about this issue.

And I suppose I should use the spotlight to tell people I have a web-show over at That Guy With the Glasses. You know the one:

:icontgwtgandcmfanclub:

It's called Familiar Faces and I take a look at under appreciated or unknown characters.

In fact I used this Deviation as a title card to an Sopa protest video I made: [link]

And here's the rest of my stuff on TGWTG site: [link]

And here my BlipTV page: [link]

And again, thank you so much for this.


---

Meet Lamar Smith, representative from Texas, and Chairman of the House Committee on the Judiciary.

As Chairman he can kill any bill he doesn't like by denying it a hearing while giving priority to the bills he wants to pass, Like SOPA.

While addressing the massive outcry over SOPA he stated that:

“It’s a vocal minority. Because they’re strident doesn’t mean they’re either legitimate or large in number. One, they need to read the language. Show me the language. There’s nothing they can point to that does what they say it does do. I think their fears are unfounded.”

Above is a list of people that have pointed at the language, including law professors and computer experts.

You have a civil war among video game companies, and the successful boycott of a company. How do you ignore that?

It's an election year. This November. Whatever happens, Texas, please kick this guy out of office.

SOPA- I CAN'T HEAR YOU by *ChadRocco "In light of the many countless reports of SOPA & the massive opposition against the bill that took place over the past 2 months, this piece takes a VERY brilliant & hugely funny approach in its overall design and execution, from an artistic point of view. And it made me laugh so hard, I cannot stop cracking up!" Also suggested by =Arichy ( Suggested by AdigunPolack and Featured by DomiSM )

Those fuckers are trying to shut down FanFiction and DeviantART now. Will FictionPress be taken down as well? It's for original stories that people have made up themselves, but it's made by the same people.

Guys, eventually this guy WILL be kicked out of office and the sopa/pipa/cispa thing will be ELIMINATIED EVIL Laughter!  AHAHAHAHHAHA *cough choke hack* *clears throat* as I was saying..

And plus, the most it probably would be gone would be three years if the next president decides to get rid of it. The internet will live on! I am going to FIGHT. The internet is the only way I can contact my friends during week days.

STOP SOPA AND GET A SODA!!!

Ok so this time the internet is in BIG TROUBLE!!!! For some reason this bill of copyright is being passed on to the internet, that also includesDeviantart, and especially Youtube! So all of our OCs or any thing else we do that are based on video games, shows, ect. so once this bill is passed our OCs and anything else we do will be BANNED to the public and the internet. Not only that Deviantart will be shut down!! FOR GOOD!

This not good at all! NOT GOOD AT ALL!
I don't want any of my Oc's gone! What the heck is going on! I've seen videos on youtube taken down for no REASON! At all! Whats happening?!

Ok so it's all true yea don't belive me look at this!


Stop SOPA 2013
In 2012 the Online Privacy Act was brought fourth to congress to be passed which would have negatively affected everyone on the internet as a whole. The people fought back and it never happened. Several times now since then it was revised under a different title with changes and tweaks to the wording to again try to get it to pass without the general public knowing about it. Each time it was found out, and then repealed.
Here we are in 2013 and again dealing with a portion of SOPA, this time the streaming of copywritten works is at the forefront of this particular law to be. If a particular stream contains any copywritten material of any sort the uploader and creator of said content can be found guilty and automatically placed in prison for years on felony charges.
Let's end this for good

SOPA will destroy the economy--
People would be out of jobs (Police, Doctors, Firefighters, Authors, Windows, Mac, all gaming companies, food makers (most o them atleast), FARMS, Music people, people in the TV busness, magazine companies, Phonebooks, Phones, stores, SCHOOLS, ONLINE SCHOOLS (education), Artists, shoemakers, Many MANY internet makers that use the internet for a living, Payed YouTubers, Furniture companies, advertisement companies, Credit card companies, banks, school textbook companies, pencil companies, construction workers, vacuum people, glass makers, car companies, glasses/contact companies, dentists, gaming websites, churches, bible makers, adoption agencies (pet and children), Mojang companies, scientists, AC/ Heat companies, Electricity, you name it, it'll be shut down.)
It'll destroy America as we know it. Freedom of speech- Gone. Jobs- Gone. Food- Mostly gone. Health- Gone Insurance- Gone. Hope- Gone.

I'm sorry to inform you all from here in the lone star state that Lamar Smith is staying in office. But on the bright side a considerable number of democrats were elected, in the usually Red state of Texas, so at least there's SOME change happening.
