Legal We always try to avoid politics like the plague here on OSNews, but sometimes, it's hard to avoid it. Take the case of Joel Tenenbaum, who could be liable for over 1 million USD if the Recording Industry Association of America gets its way. While many hoped for a change of pace when it comes to these matters, Barack Obama's Department of Justice has squarely sided with the RIAA.

Obama's a writer himself, and did audio versions of his books as well.

You are joking I presume. Obama has accomplished nothing in his entire life except being handed affirmative action positions. He started running for president when he had only been in the Senate for 143 days. This is the same guy who keeps his academic records and "writings" locked down. The same guy who edited the Harvard Law Review but did not author a single article for the publication! Besides, anyone who has penned TWO autobiographies of himself before the age of 46 is megalomaniacal at best, narcissistic at least. This is backed up by his very weird desire to be on TV every single day doing nothing more than reading a teleprompter, Ronnie Reagan style. Seriously, when is he not on TV?

Wake up. He has already spent all the money the Chinese are willing to give us. Now his treasury is printing what amounts to Confederate money, backed by nothing but the paper its printed on. His presidency is over as his own Democrats are now backing away from him to ensure their own political futures. He talked a good game and the media enabled him all along, but your messiah did not deliver.

Total fail in record time.

As soon as we are done discussing politics, maybe we can do religion next. I am sure it would be just as productive!

God your right, he has done absolutely nothing. Well, except for becoming President of the United States. And what exactly have you accomplished in this world?

Just too bad for you we could not get that uber-intellectual Sarah Palin huh?

I could've read your post at any right-wing blog over the past 18 months, and the American people soundly rejected your "arguments".

I'm surprised that your drivel has been modded up to a 6 as I write this; I had presumed that this site's membership had progressive political leanings. I'm surprised that it's a right-wing site wrt the politics of the members.

Anyway, you totally missed (or ignored) my point (not surprising for a mindless ditto-head). My point was that A. the defendant in this case provides no compelling reason for the DOJ to interfere on his behalof; B. The DOJ has changed policy from Bush in certain areas, so there has been "change"; C. the areas where the DOJ has changed policy are those where those affected could provide compelling reason to change policies, one example being whether to federal enforce anti-marijuana laws against patients using medical marijuana in states where that is permitted (whether one agrees with this change in policy is not relevant to my point).

You ignored that and went on a right-wing anti-Obama smear attack, and got 5 right-wingers to join in on your nonsense.

Very well said. These tiresome, bitter right-wingers are so upset that they are now out of power, that they resort to these pathetic hit-and-run straw man attacks at any opportunity. I bet this fool copy-and-pastes his remarks on every forum he can get an account on, hoping he can make it seem remotely relevant if he just changes the first sentence.

Pillock.
