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.

Please don't tell me you're serious.
How many countries has the US Army invaded or the CIA messed with that those magical "checks and balances" apparently failed to rescue? There are dozens of them.

You're absolutely right, I'd say. Except that the checks and balances are there... they've essentially been in place since the United States Constitution was instituted. A lot of people in the government are just finding ways to tiptoe around these said checks and balances, I think, and have been since the beginning of the US-- just plenty more these days and much more obvious than in centuries past.
