That is a really silly bill, surely it wont be passed ... then again.

It really irks me how greedy some people can be.

Your government is your friend.

It is our duty, as nerds, to protect the government from stuff they don't seem to understand! FIGHT BACK!

Bills that bizzare rarely come to a vote, though it's good that people are keeping an eye out for them.

you'd be surprised. I'm guessing that half of congress don't understand the implications of this bill. That's the problem with having a bunch of old politicians. They may not know very much about computers. With enough lobbyists and money invested by big music companies, I'd be surprised if this didn't get at least close to a vote.

Of course there are lobbyists on the other side (like IPac) preventing the thing from getting passed. Not all lobbying is corrupt; typically interest groups only help politicians who are already on their side. Though yes, it is irritating to know that so many of them still did not know what was on the bill until regular citizens began calling them. There's no excuse for that.

It is our duty, as nerds, to move to Canada and forget about American's shitty government. Except I can't stand the cold.

You know who comes up with these idiotic type of bills? Congressmen who have stock invested in that sort of company. Corruption runs deep within the American government.

And we can keep those giant spiders as pets! Hmm, sounds like a good plan actually. Ah, wait, your toilet water swirls the other way. I can't come.

I actually used to have a pretty big spider as a pet. I found it in a big web over one of the bushes in front of my house. I fed it crickets, grasshoppers, and dragonflies I found in my yard. It actually had the longest life of all of my pets. 8)

and actually, the toilet water swirling the other way is a myth. :mrgreen:

Fuck them, if this goes through I'll just continue to listen to free music or make my own.

Not going to buy their crappy music no matter what they do. gg.

Many will agree and free music will become the norm. gg.
