Yay, give money to freeloaders and arrest victimless criminals! Go America! USA! USA!

Sorry to the stateside peeps on here but this is a pile of shite big enough to be visible from space. Even China is saying "hang on a bit that's a touch harsh..."

America, land of the (previously) free and home of the (previously) brave.

Well when the country all goes in the crapper, at least there will still be some tropical islands to run off to.
Lovin' it!

My mother's internet service has been cut off several times for copyright violations already. I think 3 times in the past 5 or 6 years. Twice for my brother downloading hbo tv series, flight of the conchords and lucky louie, and once for "suspicious bandwidth usage" I think they called it. So, at least here in the states, your internet usage is already being monitored. So, that part isn't going to be any different.

Other than that, the united states has always been pretty open about violating the constitutional rights of individuals for corporations to make a little extra money, so it shouldn't be so surprising.

Its the 'tiptoe to totalitarianism'. Slowly edging to the total complete control of the whole internet.

Sometimes it seems difficult to deny conspiracists rantings, cos they may actually be right.
