A rational person examines everything based on its merits, claims and the facts that support it and NEVER dismisses something off the cuff.
Any RIAA/MPAA, lies concerning piracy using the same tired old excuse of, we're going to the poor house, can be dismissed off the cuff.
RIAA/MPAA does not disclose information to support the claims they make. The bravo sierra these mega corps are blowing, MUST be dismissed off the cuff.
This breed of terrorists has yet to produce one shred of evidence to back up their claims of losing $$$$. Yeah poor old millionaires losing millions by leaching off the success of musicians.
One does not have to experience communism first hand to easily dismiss something off the cuff, same goes for Islam, satanism, liberalism, socialism, Scientology, fascism, bigger more intrusive government involvement to micro manage every aspect of ones life from cradle to grave.
To toss the red herring of patriotism and anti-Americanism in there only serves/snip.
For a person who is carrying Bush's tune in a bucket,(Junkmail) wants more NSA spying to protect Americans or rather corporate America's interests, claims to be conservative, wants MORE intrusive bigger government. Also claims Americans are not loosing any of our liberty or privacy rights to more intrusive, government activities conducted in secretive questionable methods.
It's ironic for one to say we are not losing our freedoms. Then acting as the main cheerleader for the U.S. to adopt policies of foreign countries. Perhaps the government is floating trial balloons here to see how it flies.
What it will boil down to is this: US Gov to ISPs: Stop Privacy By 2009, Or else. Suppose this becomes law. Then what does Or ELSE mean? Water boarding? Labeled internet music terrorists? Or else, OR ELSE F'N WHAT ?
A rational person, could see the fallacy of such faulty logic and where it is headed. Will one be subject to additional or amended foreign policy laws as well? If adopted we will have to play by a new set of rules?
Due to the patriot and national security act. Its now secretive what laws we must abide by. No one knows what they are until the government decides someone broke the law defined under those acts. Then to cheer lead, the U.S should adopt foreign policy of another country. Should send shivers down ones spine, because when adopted we will not be America anymore.
All it is is a power grab for power and control, until we the people are not citizens, but subjects. IMO, this has absolutely very little to do with music traders. Just a absolutely corrupt power grab. Compare it to a dog on a leash, who is at the mercy of the people holding its leash.
I couldn't give a rats azz if some foreigner in his own country had a brain fart of an idea. As an American. My first concern is America and fellow Americans, not some idiotic policy of a foreign country or some numbnuts farting out rational, logical enlightened brain farts of ideas. UNLESS some dimwit in Congress tries to make it an official policy here in the U.S.A
There are plenty of talented smart people right here in the U.S.A, screw some smart imbecile in another country.
FROCK this thread and topic, especially when the suggestion America implement a foreign countries policies as our own. That is a disgrace and shameful insult to members of the Armed Services who gave their life for the freedom American once offered. I can see it now before Bush leaves office.
Bush: due to the epidemic of illegal music trading. I declare a state of emergency, because file trading over the internet tube thangys caused a national disaster. Clearly its a threat to nationalwide security of epidemical proportions. I now declared marshalls law until farther notice. Congress has been disbanded. All these music swapping terrorists, must be dealth with swiftly.--
It's easier to manipulate non-religious people, Ever hear of Communism?
With out religion your are more suceptable to manipulation. Look at china, they banned religion. It's much easier to manipulate people who don't have any religious convictions.
