After we successfully removed Bob Bennett from office for disqualifying himself for it, a friend of mine asked me if we should do the same to Orrin Hatch. I’m going to just throw the following points out there for consideration, and y’all tell me what we should do:
- The Senate Judiciary Committee — including Sen. Orrin Hatch — unanimously approved the “Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act” today.
- This act creates a blacklist of websites that registrars and service providers must block if the attorney general orders them to. Financial service providers are forbidden from doing business with these sites, and advertisers are forbidden from advertising on these sites.
- The First Amendment to the United States Constitution orders that “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press…“
- The oath of office for U.S. Senators includes the following: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic…“
If the government were a business and Sen. Hatch were truly my employee, I would have canned his keester years ago.

Repeal Stupid Laws
Does your city have stupid laws on the books? It is amazing how sacred people consider the laws of the State to be until they consider the law absurd. You can help delegitimize the State by contacting us with information about the stupid laws in your city. We'll contact elected officials to urge them to repeal.
