In the News "The last time we looked at Silicon Valley's lobbying efforts, Google was the big spender and Apple the piker. That hasn't changed much in the past nine months. In fact, Google increased its political spending in 2012 - a Presidential election year - by nearly 90%, while Apple reduced its by 13%." Anti-SOPA or no, that's a hell of a lot of money. This should be illegal - it's thinly veiled corruption.

I would love to do that. We'd be much better off if we did. For such a young country historically speaking, we tend to deify our traditional quirks. We tend to judge the means by the outcome, if my party is in power than the process is great!
