Too much irony for a Friday afternoon?
The House of Representatives has added an amendment to the Intelligence Reauthorization Bill making FISA, "...the exclusive means by which domestic electronic surveillance for the purpose of gathering foreign intelligence information may be conducted". But the headline reads:
Bill bans illegal govt eavesdropping
Huh? Say again. I'm sure this bill will move Bu$hCo to dismantle the program. Could Blognonymous humbly suggest that taking the administration to court might be a better move than making what is already illegal...illegal.
Buy our product or we'll sue you!
Here's the deal: The DMCA requires that when Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology is present, it must not be circumvented. But the DMCA doesn't say anything about the lack of DRM or whose particular solution has to be used. Well..unless DRM supplier, Media Rights Technologies, wins a suit that says that simply because their solution "has been proven effective", media giants like Apple and Microsoft must use it. Got that? "Use our product or we'll sue you!"
I'm expecting a lawsuit from the major auto manufacturers any day now saying that not only must I buy a car, I must buy their car!
As to the car, I sure hope that I can afford the next one I'm assigned.
PoliShifter... You're probably right. After all we're already on 40 year mortgages. Soon our children will get to inherit our debts.
Zenyenta... :-) Or how about "Read my lips. No new taps!"
On that note, you have to read my blog, click on the ads and leave a comment, or I'll sue.
Who Hijacked Our Country
And if the admin ignores this law (if it becomes law), Congress will just have to pass another bill that outlaws the violation of a law that outlaws illegal domestic wiretapping.
It's just so much easier than confronting the admin in court.
Tom... "You talkin' to to me?!"
SA... You know I bet one of those spam emails you keep getting has a cure for that.
