Boy I’m glad we re elected him once again here:iagree: He’s one of the few good ones that remembers why he’s there and how he got his job. I hope this gets some attention and stops all the folks from spreading FUD to get away with anything they decide to do.

I hope he is as good as you think. Most would look at this as an oppertunity to extort more from the RIAA and MPAA and would drop the matter when they get what they want. more money.

I dunno,

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Wyden has been involved in things for many years here and I think he wants to do the right thing as much as make money. He’s called out many bad things that were going on and continues to stick it to them when needed:clap:

We need more people in there that remembers what this Great Nation and what the
Forefathers founded it on. Someone that also remembers what the Bill Of Rights is
all about and someone that remembers what the US Constitution stands for.

Check out this video of a painting by Jon McNaughton and look at what he has
President Obama standing on which is about right the way this Country is going
now days.
