  •  Patty Murray (D-WA) is also undecided (15+ / 0-)

    while her cohort Maria Cantwell is strongly against and is proposing a far saner anti-piracy bill.

    I am quite certain that Senator Murray would love to hear from fellow Dems. Washington has a vibrant technology economy and other than some very cool bands, not so much entertainment industry. So this should be a no-brainer than her.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not.

        this morning. I hope it means she's getting slammed with emails and calls.

        Being undecided is a ridiculous position at this stage, and Cantwell's vigorous opposition is just making Murray look that much more absurd.

        I don't agree with it, but I can kind of understand Boxer and Feinstein selling out their huge technology industry. At least they have a thriving entertainment industry that they can claim to be supporting. It's BS because they're preferring SoCal and entertainment over NoCal and technology,  but at least they have some sort of rationale.

        But virtually every film and tv show "set in" Washington is produced/filmed in BC. How nice it would have been if all the Twilight movies were filmed in Forks, on the Peninsula and in our state. That could have provided a lot of people with work; a lot of businesses with income.

        When the entertainment industry came asking, she should have suggested they go to the BC parliament building and ask for votes there. I have nothing against BC and our Canuck friends, btw. This industry exports these jobs, driving  straight through our state to do so, but wants our senators to vote for them to protect their rights with overreaching oppressive bills?

        What's wrong with this picture?
