Legal For the last few years, a coalition of technology companies, academics and computer programmers has been trying to persuade Congress to scale back the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Now US Congress is preparing to do precisely the opposite. A proposed copyright law seen by CNET News.com would expand the DMCA's restrictions on software that can bypass copy protections and grant federal police more wiretapping and enforcement powers.

"Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, ingrate. You take our educational benefits and give nothing back in return. Go to France or wherever. You'll be more at home."

No offense but if you had educationial benefits you would know that he has a valid viewpoint in comparison to yours because of the possiblity of him being different.
Your attitude towards him brings disgrace not just to yourself.

What is that supposed to mean?

Your attitude towards him brings disgrace not just to yourself.

His swearing is bad, but he does have a valid point. Just using someone else's country and leaving when you don't like the conditions is bad - at least when you are in a position to work towards fixing things. And attempting to smear other Americans for his bad attitude is equally childish.

You don't own a country; it isn't yours. Emigrating is no affront to you or anyone else. You have no claim to his education or the facilities in which it was imparted to him, public or private. You are not the republic, Caesar.

I don't understand why your post was modded up; it has nothing to do with what I said. I never claimed to own a country. I didn't declare that emigration was an affront to me or anyone else. I didn't make a claim to his education or the facilities in which it was imparted to him, public or private. I didn't declare myself the republic, nor do I see any similarity between my comments and Caesar. If you can find some way to relate your comments to my post, I would have a much better chance of seeing your point.

EDIT: LOL, I hit the reply button on my own post by mistake. This was meant for the person who calls himself "Get a Life."
