The fifth amendment.

Popular Science - New Technology, Science News, The Future Now: Judge Rules Americans Can Be Forced to Decrypt Personal Data - What Does That Mean For You?

So if you encrypt your hard drive and the government wants to use the data on it against you.  Does it violate your fifth amendment right to have a judge order you to give up your password?   Sounds like self incrimination to me.  What do you think?

Watching the SuperBowl? Then you support SOPA!

Are you planning on watching the SuperBowl this year?  If so you are supporting SOPA!  The National Football League is one of the supporters of SOPA!  Simply take a look at SOPA HR 3261 and you will see the NFL supports SOPA!  So if you are wearing your NFL jersey, watching a football game or planning to watch the SuperBowl you are supporting SOPA.

You can feel free to contact the NFL and tell them what you think of your money going to support this bill.  I know I sent an email and I'm not planning on watching the SuperBowl until they publicly say they wont be supporting it. and who are their media contacts and tell them what you think!

SOPA and PIPA Must Die - Protest Supporters

SOPA and PIPA are evil and will squash your civil liberties by turning everyone into criminals just for linking to a website which contains piracy.  Obviously this law is significantly flawed.  Once again though corporate america means to help take your liberties away.  The List Of SOPA Supporters is an example of corporate America taking your rights away.  I personally am protesting these companies and where possible not purchasing any products from them.  I suggest you review the list for companies you purchase from and look for alternatives.  I also suggest you review the political and corporate supporters of SOPA.  I assure you I will not vote for anyone listed on this Bill.  I am an IT professional and this law is designed to take your freedoms away not protect them.
