It saddens me that we have come to this. The cornerstone of out justice system was that everyone is innocent until proven guilty. This person who is charged with enforcement of those laws seems to thing that the Cardassian justice system is better suited to getting the job done. For that simple statement he should be removed from duty as he clearly does not understand what his job actually is.
If companies like Walmart and similar stores support this, then it is not a good idea. Just like when At&t supports a piece of legislation. It should be an instant red flag, and cause everyone to raise an eyebrow.
I fear that while this is said to us upfront that there is some other deal being done behind the scenes that makes this all but pointless. I really have no faith in this administration when it comes to patent/copyright/technology legislation.
This crap is like playing a never ending game of whack-a-mole. We do what we can to get one squashed and then suddenly some NEW piece of legislation is introduced that just roles the what we just defeated into a new box with a pretty little bow on top.
My pitchfork is in need of servicing and my torch is beginning to burn out. I cannot even fathom a guess at the number of calls and letters I have written on various pieces of legislation.
Not to mention I am fairly certain that its all part of their plan to wear us down to this point until we simply quit fighting.
