I pretty much agreed with everything you said. :)

Salman Khan's take on things:

Even though he mentions the fact that producers can contest stuff right now (i.e., that there's already laws in place to protect them), someone replies:
say what you will, even though I dont like where such a law may lead to myself, in the end I gotta admit its only fair.
I'm thinking their definition of fair is "the right people get to be bullies." :rolleyes:

Another survey on MSN showed most people still aren't sure about what's going on, but there was a significant number who supported shooting down these two bills. I tried logging on here, got the protest banner. Tried ICHC, same deal. I'm going over there in a bit to see what's happened since.

Nothing wrong with fishing. There is nothing in the world like that first glimpse of the fish you got on the line. And then the moment when you bring it aboard the boat and have to walk over to the head to whack it.


My opinions are mine and mine only. If my opinions are the opinion of others who happen to share whatever my crazy views may be, then fine, but it's not because I represent them in having my opinions. Got it?

There's everything wrong with fishing! Fish are friends, not food! :D:


Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long.

We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious…
and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

Here is an interesting article on why the government wants control of the internet.
http://godfatherpolitics.com/3293/why-t ... -internet/
It wasn’t too long ago that that we had three sources of national news: ABC, CBS, and NBC. Print media were limited to the daily newspaper and national news magazines like Time, Newsweek, and U.S. News & World Report. No more.

The media gatekeepers are few and far between today. The last gate – the biggest gate – is the internet. If it can’t be controlled, the people can’t be controlled. That’s why governments around the world are working to implement ways to control it. A nation like China just does it, but here in the United States the pretense of a legitimate legal remedy must be found.

Read more at the link.
Those who give up liberty for security have neither.
