In the News And thus, our true colours reveal. Since Obama was the young newcomer, technically savvy, many of us were hoping that he might support patent and/or copyright reform. In case our story earlier on this subject didn't already tip you off, this certainly will: Obama has sided squarely with the RIAA/MPAA lobby, and backs ACTA. No copyright and/or patent reform for you, American citizens!

It's a repeat of the "Bread and Circuses" syndrome, only this time it's Medicare/Medicaid (and all of the other entitlement programs!), and wasting money on the Olympics, among other boondoggles! Why are Countries spending money on the Olympics when a percentage of their citizens are in poverty and in need of assistance?
I'm sure that there are even better analogies to the "Circuses" part of the equation -- someone please supply them!
