Understanding Sopa with Black Humor
I have been so busy trying to get a few things out of the way did not set up my site to black out today. Previously we had shared and avatar photoshop kit (Censored and Stop SOPA MOTHA Foka) so you could support the Anti-Sopa & Anti-Pipa movement. We also included an brief explanation on what SOPA is. This morning I caught this tweet by fellow dad blogger extraordinaire @cc_chapman on the great job TheOatmeal.com did on sending a message with a moving image (.gif) and some great humor.
I think many others have blacked out there sites but we also support SOPA by creating awareness. I could not agree more with @cc_chapman on how the creative, fun, and informative animated gif above should definitely win the award for best idea on blacking out a site.
I guess the fact that I am based in Puerto Rico and although we are a U.S. Territory and/or Colony we don’t have any representation in congress so all I can do is create awareness for those that can actually talk to their congress representatives (Although SOPA will affect all of us).
Want to help in the fight against SOPA / PIPA? First, go learn about the bills. After that go contact your elected officials. Wikipedia has a handy-dandy page set up which allows you to locate your state representative. (yes I did Copy paste this from TheOatmeal.com)
Do your support SOPA?
A few interesting posts on SOPA I found and I would like you to visit:

As an adolescent, when the madness of housing projects for the riff raff and the wealthy started…Some of the projects as Villa Blanca in Caguas City were known as Villa Sopa. Campbells or Lipton, I am not sure
SOPA wise the only ones I enjoy are Korean, RAMEN. I usually go the gourmet way…Sauted onions, peppers in butter, then add whatever, chicken, jam, eggs and VOILA, you got a gourmet soup or SOPA. What is the big deal?
I think is all a bunch of manure. What the people need is fresh air, water, food, a roof, a so so job, to pay for it in addition to electricity and fecal water treatment.
All this concern about censorship is pure crap…As if everyone had something useful or pragmatic to write about the global financial and moral debacle.
Venga mi sopita RAMEN i a coger poelsaco!
Seeing your comments Thankfully SOPA is no in effect. If that would have been the case my site might have been censored.
