Today I wanted to take a break from my normal posts. This isn’t one of my giveaways or reviews, but a post on a topic that needs more exposure. It’s Drunk Driving. I am going to share something that has been passed around the internet probably more times than can be imagined. I can not bring myself to post the picture that is being shared with it because it was just to heartbreaking.

My reason for sharing this isn’t because of a personal experience with Drunk Driving but because I am a parent and a human being. Too many times people take life for granted and are selfish in the choices they make. Rarely, do they think how are my actions going to effect others. Is my one moment of thinking I am sober enough to drive going to decide the fate of someone else?

Before you have the drink and decide to take that chance read this article. Remember that the choices you make don’t just effect yourself but the lives of people you may never meet. Take responsibility and remember that a drink just isn’t worth it if you have to drive. Maybe print and carry this article with you in case you need a reminder when you are showing your ID to make that purchase or have that drink. OK enough from me. I warn you that you may need tissues. I am off to hug my kids and be thankful for what I have.

I am not sure if many of you have heard about this, I didn’t until a few minutes ago. Many “POPULAR” websites such as Wikipedia, Craigslist, Google and more will do dark starting at 12 p.m tonight and stay dark for 24 hours. I am unaware of how this will affect our site. I wanted to let our readers and fan know that if our site is unavailable or you email us and don’t get a reply please do not be alarmed will will be back up and running just as soon as The “BIG SHOTS” make their point and let us get back to business.

Here is part of the article that was published on Yahoo earlier:

If you have anything you want to look up on Wikipedia, you’d better do it today, or you’re going to have to wait a full 24 hours to get your answer. Why? Well, Wikipedia will be leading a number of high-profile websites going dark on Wednesday to protest two controversial bills in Congress. SOPA, also known as the Stop Online Piracy Act in the House of Representatives, and PIPA, the Protect I-P Act in the Senate, are designed to crack down on the illegal sharing of movies and music on the Web. However, critics say the anti-piracy legislation is censorship and would force sites to police the online world.

On Twitter, Jimmy Wales, co-founder of Wikipedia, confirmed that all of Wikipedia’s 3.8 million English-language articles will be unavailable from midnight Eastern time tonight until midnight Wednesday. Anyone who visits the site will be redirected to a banner that reads “The Internet must remain free.” Also joining Wikipedia in going black are Reddit, Minecraft, Craigslist, and Boing Boing, among others. Craigslist has posted a message at the top of its city homepages with a link to “help put a stop to this madness” of SOPA and PIPA.

The Obama administration, as well as Congress, seem to be listening to the critics. In a blog post, the White House said it would not support “legislation that reduces freedom of expression … or undermines the dynamic, innovative global Internet.” And House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said a vote would not come up for SOPA until a consensus is reached. By the way, if you’re a fan of any of the sites that are planning to participate in the blackout, don’t worry: You can still tweet about it as much as you want. Twitter will still be up and running. In fact, CEO Dick Costolo tweeted this about the sites choosing to go dark: “Closing a global business in reaction to single-issue national politics is foolish.”

Although there is a lot of opposition to SOPA and PIPA, some believe the legislation is necessary.

One person who does not mince words about his support for SOPA is Rupert Murdoch. Over the weekend, the media tycoon and CEO of News Corporation seemed to almost mimic the recent antics of Charlie Sheen and Kanye West, firing off a number of tweets in a short period of time. Murdoch blasted Obama and Google for how they are dealing with the anti-piracy legislation, tweeting, “Piracy leader is Google who streams movies free, sells [ads] around them. No wonder pouring millions into lobbying.” Google responded, calling the accusation “nonsense” and adding that it has taken down 5 million infringing webpages from its search results … and that it fights pirating and counterfeiters every day. Many believe that Murdoch confused downloading with streaming, and the next day he backed off. Murdoch tweeted, “Sure misunderstand many things, but not plain stealing. Incidentally google blocks many other undesirable things.”
