"Don't ask me to write a check for you when you think your job is at risk and then don't pay any attention to me when my job is at stake."

Wow! A clearer intent of attempted bribery cannot be found! Thanks CT for electing such a corrupt senator for so many years/ sarc

Why do we even need SOPA and PIPA? Wasn’t DMCA passed to stop online piracy?

DMCA only works IF someone bitches or complains about one of their “properties” online was available for open download. I’m pals within the anime fansub community and even every anime site has the DMCA link on it, it’s just a sign that they comply but not necc. “enforce” the policy especially with the .com sites. Now everyone is changing their .coms to .eu.

Hey Dodd? Why don’t you call up Lamar Smith and see about making a ‘waitress sandwich’ with 0bama in the middle?

It’ll be just like ol’ times with Fat Teddy, ya corrupt turd.

"You can complain and say, well, actors make a lot of money and they don't have to worry about this," said Dodd. "You tell that to that camera guy, you tell that to that makeup artist, you tell that to that truck driver out there who made, makes a living because they work in this industry."

maybe these actors should redistribute their wealth with these people... like they've been advocating everyone else to do...

Yea sure Dud. We trust your numbers. Like Hollywood isn’t infamous for faking every number they touch. That’s why they’re always suing each other for nonpayment of profit or earnings.

You don't need Hollywood. I watch a short-film on the internet and then I am good.

Good old Dodd just looking out for the middle class
makeup artist and camera man and don’t forget the movie making truck driver. I am sure this is the reason why Hollywood is for the bills not for them but for the little people
