Legal The US is really ramping up its war on intellectual property infringement, a war which I'm sure will be just as successful, cheap and supported by the people as the wars on drugs and terrorism. The US has started seizing the domain names of various websites through ICANN - not because owners of these sites were convicted of anything, but merely because complaints have been filed against them. Anyone want to take a guess how long it will be before the US government blocks WikiLeaks? Update: The blocks function outside of the US too. In other words, the US is forcing its views upon the rest of the world once again.

And for you non-americans; please stop judging the populace through the politicians. It is really getting old.

You have elections and yet you vote in grade 'A' morons like Michele Bachmann who consider homosexuality: "We need to have profound compassion for people who are dealing with the very real issue of sexual dysfunction in their life and sexual identity disorders" - excuse me you unsightly harridan, I don't suffer from a 'disorder' given that I don't talk to my invisible friend each night.

So whilst the economy is nose diving into a toilet you have morons like her focused on what consenting adults do behind closed doors. If you don't want to be judged based on your politicians then stop voting in morons to run your country - get some people who have some basic grasp of what is important and is the concern of the government and what isn't the concern of the government such as what consenting adults do behind closed doors. I really can't believe that in a first world country you have over half the population taking Genesis literally or voting based on the candidates position on the three G's (God, Guns and Gays).
