Obama to pass elements of SOPA/PIPA as executive order.

Obama to pass elements of SOPA/PIPA as executive order. - A must read.

"The draft executive order includes elements of what had been the leading cybersecurity overhaul bill in the Senate, which was defeated this summer amid opposition from industries opposed to increased regulation."

"A spokeswoman for the administration's National Security Council, Caitlin Hayden, confirmed that an order was being considered but would not provide details. "We're not commenting on the elements," Hayden said."

This article is just full of all types of things that make you wonder why we even have a legislative branch if the President can with just a stroke of the pen sign provisions into law that obviously the public opposed relatively recently.

How can we let this happen and continue unabated?  The simple answer is... we can't.
