In light of the recent acts of SOPA, PIPA, ANDD, and the ACTA laws/bills, the time has come to not only show ourselves and our opinions to the world but to speak them as well.

Once that happens anyone caught crossing the border with music, movies, TV shows, or any kind of possibly pirated material on their MP3 Player, Iphone or Laptop can be arrested. Even if you just jail broke your Iphone you could be put in jail for up to five years.

Our blogs and online journals will be censored as well. All of this goes against America's Constitution of Freedom of Speech amendment.

Open mouths gagged, voices silenced,
Placated serenly with guns in our backs,
Aristans' fingers broken, thinkers' minds corroded...
Placed upon the hot coals: books, paints, a flute...
