Legal We always try to avoid politics like the plague here on OSNews, but sometimes, it's hard to avoid it. Take the case of Joel Tenenbaum, who could be liable for over 1 million USD if the Recording Industry Association of America gets its way. While many hoped for a change of pace when it comes to these matters, Barack Obama's Department of Justice has squarely sided with the RIAA.

US two-party "democracy"

I just love to see the way the US sells its political establishment as a "democracy". They condemned the USSR for its 1-party system, but as soon you add +1 to that number, totalitarianism automagically becomes democracy...

What's even funnier is they way these two parties are organized. Most western countries have right-wing and left-wing parties, with the political landscape sort-of representing the natural struggle between private (/conservative) and socially-oriented (/progressive) economical views. In the US, there is no such distinction - both major parties are right-wing. Regardless of whichever you vote for, you get the same politics, only supported by two different industries.
