There are a couple of things I feel the need to say.
The Ink Puddle will never become a place where politics are spoken, not that I have an issue or am ignorant to what is going on, but I don't think a book blog is the place for that. If I wanted to chinwag politics, I'd have a political blog. However, this is something that affects every single one of us here in the United States and something that truly offends our first ammendment right!
What congress is about to vote on is wrong. This could paralizye so many things that we are able to discuss and do online. And while there are a lot of things I feel like we can't do in this world to make things better, there is something small we can do here. If you're not entirely sure what I'm talking about or you want more information on the matter, click here. But if you want to act, click here and sign the petition to stop this ridiculousness. We don't need more of Big Brother.
So yes, while we went ahead and posted as usual, I encourage all of you to go on and sign that petition. Tell congress and all of our representatives that no, passing something such as this isn't right and we're not going to stand for it as Americans. And please, pass the word onto your friends and family.
