Picture of the Day: 11/16/11

New bills that would permit censorship of any site by the US government are viciously gaining support in Congress and quickly making their progression from ideas to policies.

This site, along with Facebook, Twitter or any site you frequent could be shut down and the internet, one of the last bastions of true freedom, would become policed and removed from its original intent and into the hands of a centralized control.
