Aka any cam user that a)uses music in there act b)uses it to make a living c)Legislation that the dollar damage figure is based on what exactly? What harm are they doing to another? You think your fellow man, attempting to make a HONEST dollar with there own work is criminal? Who's misleading who here?
Here's a thought. They are after all senators and part of there duty is to uphold the constitution. Yet, in the course of there duties they are to listen to there constituents in there respective states and vote accordingly.

Not corruption? I'd buy sea side property here in Utah on that. Incompetence you can draw your own conclusion on your respective representatives. So the problem may be neither corruption or incompetence and in one word in your conclusion, the blind. Will-full ignorance on the part of the electorate that is supposed to covering our asses is a dam sure fire way to burn the country around you as well.

And yes, thus far there ability to affect change is has been slim. Yet the movement is growing under a flag ship of the Tea Party & Campain for Liberty and more to the point the parroting by every GOP presidential candidate of the Principles Ron Paul has beckoned on for 30 years. Oh and btw I havn't met a face yet in these groups that hark on narcissism. If standing up for individual liberty is somehow synonymous with immediate gratification then count me among them.
