Senator Ron Wyden: Thank You For Fighting Internet Censorship!

I'm not a big fan of the U.S. legislative process and generally feel little more than a frustrated disdain for those involved in the day-to-day machinations of our "representative" oligarchy; however, when credit is due, credit is due. Ron Wyden, a Democrat, is a U.S. Senator from Oregon who recently prevented the dreaded internet censorship bill COICA (Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act) from passage during the most recent legislative session. Do you think he's a FLAC kind of guy? Anyway, it's terrifying to think that a lone Senator from Oregon, who, for whatever reason, has a conscience, is all that stands between us and a "brave new world" of corporate interests using government authority to determine what we can and cannot express in cyber-space. Yay! Senator Wyden!- keep up the good fight; I only wish I was more of a man of faith...

I never realized how difficult it is to find a cool photo of a politician. I settled on this one because I can picture him saying, "Back off you corporate lackeys! This simply isn't going to happen on my watch!"
