If you were not already aware, the US Government has presented two bills before Congress — the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate, and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House.
If SOPA and PIPA are passed, not only would this change the internet as we know it, by imposing harmful regulations, but it could potentially shut down major websites, some social media outlets, or any website that shares information — even humble little blogs like Foodiggity. And did we mention that these shutdowns would come immediately and without warning?
As major sites such as Wikipedia and WordPress.org have gone dark to raise awareness, Foodiggity would like to join in and offer our support. Please help show your opposition to these bills by signing this petition, or contact your Senator.

I try not to touch politics on this site… but Santorum is a douche.
You’ll be happy to know that, in the debate last night, all of the Republicans came out against the current bill. Although Santorum was a little cagey on it.
