Legal "President Barack Obama on Monday nominated former Recording Industry Association of America lawyer Donald Verrilli Jr. to serve as the nation's solicitor general. The solicitor general is charged with defending the government before the Supreme Court, and files friend-of-the court briefs in cases in which the government believes there is a significant legal issue. The office also determines which cases it would bring to the Supreme Court for review. Verrilli is best known for leading the recording industry's legal charge against music- and movie-sharing site Grokster. That 2003 case ultimately led to Grokster's demise when the U.S. Supreme Court sided with the RIAA's verdict." Cough.

3rd tier educations

This is why people with educations from 3rd tier universities shouldn't be allowed to vote. You people actually think there's a difference between the 2 parties? Please. There's a difference in rhetoric, but no difference in implementation. Good job at being brainwashed partisan hacks. Go get some trivial programming books and pretend you're well educated.

The reason our country is in shambles is because you 3rd stringers vote these scumbags into office.
