The rant? It's about SOPA.
I'm quite frankly appalled that the US government would even suggest
that SOPA be brought back. How is that they have the balls to do that?
Let's call it SOPA 3.0, shall we? This time, it's a little different and I'll copy and paste the details from the petition:
"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."
Look, I can quite frankly understand why the streaming of either full movies or albums or shit like that is illegal. I don't care if people do it, but I DO understand why it's illegal. But felony charges? That's basically on the level of rapists and murderers. People who stream full movies or albums shouldn't be charged with felony and be placed in jail for X amount of years. That's bullshit.
Also, with SOPA 3.0, we don't even have Obama on our side anymore. He's starting to consider it.
Also, they are very vague on the whole "copywritten" thing. Is just the streaming of albums, movies, shows, etc. going to be illegal or is stuff like AMVs, fanfiction, fanart, song covers, let's plays, tutorials, etc. going to be illegal to post online, too? If it its, then that's double bullshit. People shouldn't be charged with a felony just for doing fanart or fanfiction, just because it has copywritten material.
In my opinion, it's fine to do fanart, fanfiction, song covers, etc. or upload movies and albums online as long as your not making any profits from the stuff you upload whatsoever. If you make money from it, then sure, it should be a fucking crime.
Also, another point I'd like to make; you can be dragged out of your house for even watching a youtube video that has copywritten material but was not uploaded by the copyright holder.
Say you like Paramore; you start looking for a Paramore music video and you watch it and find out it wasn't uploaded by the official channel or something. You could be dragged out of your house and put in jail for that if this fuckery gets passed. Do really want to live in a world like that?
To the government, if you're reading this:
1. You do realize that you're breaking your own laws, right? SOPA 3.0 breaks the first amendment. I may not be an American citizen, but I'm pretty sure that while I'm a legal resident in this country, I'm entitled to it as well. I'll fight for it if I have to.
2. America has more people in prison than anywhere else in the world. Usually, it's for shit like this. Not for any violent act at all (murder, rape, etc), and I think that it's bullshit.
If you want to sign the petition (and it needs fifteen thousand signatures before September 21st), then here is the link: petitions.whitehouse.gov/petit…
You remember that fucking cunt that harassed a family with a kid with autism, right? Let's MST her letter!I also live in this neighbourhood and have a problem!!!! You have a kid that is mentally handicapped and you consciously decided that it would be a good idea to live in a close proximity neighgbourhood like this????
Why not? Why is it such a bad thing to let special needs kids to play outside?
You selfishly put your kid outside everyday and let him be a nothing but a nuisance and a problem to everyone else with that noise polluting whaling he constantly makes!!!
Oh, shut the fuck up. There are way worse noises than screaming. Please.
That noise he makes when he is outside is DREADFUL!!!!!!!!!! It scares the hell out of my normal children!!!!!!!!!
If you ever have another child or grandchild with special needs, I'm going to laugh.
Crying babies, music and even barking dogs are normal sounds in a residential neighbourhood!!!!! He is NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Who put YOU in charge of what is normal and what isn't in a residential neighborhood, you cunt?
He is a nuisance to everyone and will always be that way!!!!!! Who the hell is going to care for him????????? No employer will hire him, no normal girl is going to marry/love him and you are not going to live forever!!
That's not actually true. Plenty of autistic individuals get hired and married. But you do raise a good point, his parents AREN'T going to live forever.
T]hey should take whatever non retarded body parts he possesses and donate it to science. What the hell else good is he to anyone!!!! You had a retarded kid, deal with it... properly!!!!! What right do you have to do this to hard working people!!!!!!!!!
They ARE dealing with it properly. They're trying to give as much of a normal life as possible.
I HATE people like you who believe, just because you have a special needs kid, you are entitled to special treatment!!! GOD!!!! Go live in a tralier in the woods or something with your wild animal kid!!! Nobody wants you living here and they don't have the guts to tell you!!!!!
How about YOU go live in the woods instead?
Do the right thing and move or euthanize him!!! Either way, we are ALL better off!!!
Who the fuck suggests to people the euthanize their kids? Or kids at all for that matter?
This woman really needs to get her head out of her cunt.
Let's talk about music!
I really like Alter Bridge right now.
