Those goddam Democrats would rather keep collecting their Hollywood checks, than heed the will of millions of Americans who have lent their online voice in an unprecedented manner.
Are they really this stupid? Can they really be this idiotic?
A style of office, or honorific, is a legal, official, or recognized title. A style, by tradition or law, precedes a reference to a person who holds a post or political office . . .
[In the US:] Continued use of a title depends on the office: Offices of which there is only one at a time (e.g., President, Speaker, Governor, or Mayor) are only officially used by the current office holder. . .
Titles for offices of which there are many concurrent office holders (e.g., Ambassador, Senator, Judge, Professor or military ranks, especially Colonel and above) are retained for life: A retired US Army general is addressed as "General (Name)" officially and socially for the rest of his or her life.
They Democrats came within 3-4 votes of getting fantastic reform. The Republicans voted in lock step against pretty much anything, except 2-3 of them.
I'm not sure why people keep insisting the parties are the same.
Maddoxx pretty much sums up the SOPA-protest bullshit in his typical manner.
This line alone should be reason enough to bar this person from ever serving elected office again.
Does anybody else just feel like turning off "culture" for a good long while? I know this makes for a pretty neutered version of Walden Pond but the cumulative force of this crap is really turning me off of watching any movies or listening to any popular music for a while.
Generally, the most long-term effective way of dealing with piracy is to focus on your customer service. If you're selling data, pirates can duplicate your product exactly, but they can't duplicate the experience of getting it. The experience of pirating a song varies depending on how many other people know or care about it at the moment, what trackers they're using, and how much sleep the compressionist had that night. Paying 99¢ to not worry about that bullshit is quite a reasonable proposition for most consumers. -- LogicalDash
I used Wikipedia yesterday. I looked at the Google cached version of the page I wanted to read. It's not like the information went away.
My takeaway is that the vast majority of internet users are even less informed than a minimally informed person like me.
Christopher J. Dodd now fills Mr. Valenti’s shoes. But he stays out of those halls, thanks to restrictions on his ability to lobby Congress until 2013.
That shift was exposed this week partly because Mr. Dodd found himself in a political knife fight while being forced to sheathe his most powerful weapon: 36 years of personal relationships with a Congress in which he had served as a representative and then senator since 1975, before joining the motion picture association last March.
