Internet & Networking "Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and other international leaders urged countries and private businesses on Thursday to fight increasing efforts to restrict access to the Internet by repressive governments and even some democratic ones. Opening a two-day conference on digital freedom here sponsored by Google and the Dutch government, Mrs. Clinton warned that restrictions on the Internet threatened not only basic freedoms and human rights, but also international commerce and the free flow of information that increasingly makes it possible." Uhm, Mrs. Clinton... SOPA...?

How hypocritical can you get?

I often post news like this on my Google+ feed but have to apologies to my American friends as it's not directed at them. It never fails to amaze me the brazen hypocrisy and blatant arrogance of American "diplomacy". Seriously, get your own house in order before you start bitching about others'. American has not been the poster child for freedom for a long time and the "do as I say, not as I do" message being sent out does nothing to endear American to the rest of the world. /rant
