Kvatch Kvetches - Go To Jail Free Cards
Not just double-dipping. Big Content Wants "Infini-dipping"
Section 115 Reform Act of 2006 (SIRA) is the worst bill you've never heard of--a way for Big Content to extract their pound of flesh for every instance of a copyrighted work. You see it changes copyright law to add licensing rights on "incidental copies". Rip an MP3 from a CD you own...pay the toll. Move that MP3 to another computer...pay again. Transfer it to your iPod...yes sir. Pay up! So much for fair use.
All Budgetary Restraint Is Meaningless
The GOP wants to knock another $115M out CPB's budget in order to "rein in government spending". But you know what? I've got a better idea. Let's stay in Iraq just one month less ($10B) and use that money to fund the Corporation for Public Broadcasting for the next 20 years!
Go To Jail Free Cards
Did you know that it is a crime to tell a lie to the federal government? Even if your lie is oral and not under oath? Even if you have received no warnings of any kind? Even if you are not trying to cheat the government out of money? Even if the government is not actually misled by your falsehood? Well it is.
Iam starting to become a highly furious little monkey :(
Monkey? You're a Monkey. I thought you were a cat. Gee I wish I had as much brain power as a primate. :-)
PoP...Hey, if they lie to themselves (delusional, you know) can we get 'em and jail 'em for that?
I have sympathy for claims of creative propery, but I have no sympahy for government or corporate attempts to control.
I mean, shouldn't Bush be in jail then along with all his cronies?
