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.

Once again you are blanketing me in with "all Americans". Not every American voted for her. I didn't. Especially since I can't, since she is in MN and I'm quite aways off from there ;)

And if I cared to look at your politicians, I'm sure I could find plenty of bigoted, backwards thinking assholes in New Zealand, Kaiwai. But that wouldn't make me think every person in NZ is a douche bag, now would it?

Oh, I also like how you pull out questionable statistics like the "63% of Americans take the bible literally!!!111" from a questionable poll done in 2005. Get your head out of your ass.
