"unless it's crossing their palm with GOLD! The gr$$d is unreal. PETITION to sign!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dodd gave US Fannie Mae, Freddy Mac, after this fiasco he decided to quit Washington, now he works for the movie industry as a lobbyist and wants to give US SOPA.. NO DEAL! I am a member of SAG and AFTRA and I am one who is also against the merger of these two unions. There's too many behind the scenes games going on to trust a merger.

Just as there's too much backroom dealing going in Washington where Dodd once hung his hat before he left under a cloud to go Hollywood..

Those CORPORATIONS that run "GOLLYWOOD" do not give a damn about entertainment unless it's crossing their palm with GOLD! The gr$$d is unreal. " Please sign the petition..

"They still just don't get it. Chris Dodd -- the head of the Hollywood Lobby -- is bragging that he's working on a new insider deal to push through SOPA-like legislation.
He had this exchange with the Hollywood Reporter this week:

THR: Are there conversations going on now?

Dodd: I'm confident that's the case, but I'm not going to go into more detail because obviously if I do, it becomes counterproductive.

THR: Did you feel personally blindsided by Obama over SOPA?

Dodd: I'm not going to revisit the events of last winter. I'll only say to you that I'm confident he's using his good relationships in both communities to do exactly what you and I have been talking about.

This exchange comes days after the White House issued a report that urges a redoubling of efforts to crack down on piracy.

Hollywood and Obama should've learned: No form of censorship will be acceptable to Internet users, and we're fed up with corrupt, back-room deals that are driven by the rich and well-connected. Any major Internet policy changes should be negotiated in the light of day, so the millions of people who'd be affected can have their say too.

Please tell President Obama to reject Hollywood's backroom deals -- just add your name at right.

TO PRESIDENT OBAMA AND CHRIS DODD: After the biggest outpouring of activism in the history of the Internet, it's appalling that Hollywood is back to its old insider ways. No backroom deals -- and no new SOPA. And any and all negotiations with Hollywood should take place in the light of day."

'Dodo' Dodd was incompetent in Connecticut in the 80s when I was in the Navy riding subs out of Groton. He's still incompetent, as demonstrated by this fraudulent collaboration with criminal mobs like the RIAA and MPAA. His efforts should be quashed and discarded, and he should be ejected from politics for life.
