Yeah, that's a really silly oversight on our part!  I just renamed the "Gods and Governments" category to "Politics".  Enjoy :)

First time I realized there is no politics category on blip uploads. Should there be?

If hundreds of people literally post a video about this or just a simple video text message and upload them to all these free services.... excellent viral effect!

Absolutely.  With all the spotlights on online video these days, there are a lot of people watching.

Even if it's a simple text message like Sull says, we've got to send something.  That's one of the powerful things about videoblogging, right?  We all have a voice, scream!

(ok, I'm off the soapbox now)

You're right Sull, I have been reading a lot about this and some
other issues as well, and it seems very clearly that Congress does
not have a clue about this and what it could really mean......we have
to be vocal about it and we have to do something about it.......but
will it be enough..........I plan on vlogging about it tonight.....

Same here.  I think we might even post it on all the  active sites, like (shudder) youtube, etc....get wicked exposure.

People need to know what road this puts us on if it goes through.  The Internet is responsible for connecting so many people, so many communities and something like this tosses that all straight down the toilet.
