Just like Google after them, ESPN was once the plucky, decent, little engine that could. But once the money started rolling in, they both turned into rapacious, black-hearted juggernauts with out-sized influence at every level including regulatory capture.

A pox on both their mansions.

When even the menial, back-breaking labor jobs disappear, what are the masses of humanity (on both sides of every border) supposed to do?

Time to write your representatives and tell them you oppose this bill. Seriously. Go to their web sites and write them. The only way you can attempt to derail this thing is to be proactive and tell the people elected to represent your interests what your interests ARE.
