A blog about MMOs and everything else
cool! i have a post about stopin sopa too! down with sopa!
NEWS FLASH.SOPA was killed by republicans bailing from the senate version but it seems that the US president, Obama still wants at least a version of it.So today he signed the Global Internet Treaty which many critics of SOPA claim is even worse than SOPA. Of course the US senate must ratify the treaty and while democrat leaders in the senate are pushing for ratification the republicans are saying no.
I noticed .. this is an issue about lobbyists vs. the people ..
I'm no fool and know that the US repubs are probably saying no just because Obama is saying yes. But what scares me is an article I read where the White House is trying to argue that the senate is not reuqired and Obama has the executive right to make this treaty without Congress. This is now the third thing that Obama has done that ignores the US Constitution in a power grab.
