Legal "The International Trade Commission voted yesterday to investigate Apple for patent infringement allegations launched by the Google-owned Motorola Mobility. As expected, Motorola is asking for import bans on just about every iOS device, including iPhones, iPods, and iPads. What might be surprising is that Motorola is also asking for a ban on every type of Mac OS X computer, claiming Apple's iMessage technology infringes a Motorola patent." Let's hope all those products get banned. And that all Motorola phones get banned. Let's hope everything gets banned from the US. And yes, I changed Motorola into Google for the headline.

Maybe eventually it will get so bad, almost everyone hears about it. And then, maybe people will start realizing all the bullshit that's going on and start to do something to try to end it.

But considering this stuff doesn't make the news like rape, murder, drunk driving, illegal drugs, speeding tickets, celebrities, and who just died... I'm not holding my breath on it.

Meanwhile, the government's busy trying to strengthen laws that already exist such as various forms of rape, violence, child abuse; attempting to branch them out to where they make no sense (video games, censorship of media/entertainment, enforcement of drug laws, further restrictions on weapons) in the name of "the children" and "anti-violence". Freedom be damned.
