It’s a classic maneuver. Let some uncontroversial issue block for you when trying to push forward something that destroys our liberty.

The fortunate thing is that the federal government is so clueless about the internet they are probably not capable of truly suppressing it at this point. We have bitcoin farms and identity theft squads operating in international waters.

Agreed that for now it probably has ineffective teeth. But we still ought to cut this bill off at it’s knees.
