“She started by thanking her husband “because when you thank your husband at the end of the speech, they play him out with the music. And I want him to know that everything I value most in our lives, you’ve given me.”—goddamn you, meryl
i doubt another person would ever be capable of making me feel every human emotion there is within less than one week. i love knowing i’m capable of so much “life” in my life. but yeah, let’s keep to the more positive side of the scale. because, ouch.
Thank you for writing to me regarding S. 968, the PROTECT IP Act of 2011. I understand the concerns that have been raised over the original approach towards solving the problem online piracy poses to our overall economy and New York jobs. All New Yorkers should be able to agree on the shared goals of cracking down on the illegal piracy of copyrighted material without any unintended consequences of stifling the internet or online innovation.
After working hard with my colleagues to make important changes and improve the Protect IP legislation, it became clear that a consensus on a balanced approach to achieve these shared goals could not be reached. I believe it is time for Congress to take a step back and start over with both sides bringing their solutions to the table to find common ground towards solving this problem.
Thank you again for writing to express your concerns, and I hope that you keep in touch with my office regarding future legislation. For more information on this and other important issues, please visit my website at http://gillibrand.senate.gov and sign up for my e-newsletter.
