In the News And thus, our true colours reveal. Since Obama was the young newcomer, technically savvy, many of us were hoping that he might support patent and/or copyright reform. In case our story earlier on this subject didn't already tip you off, this certainly will: Obama has sided squarely with the RIAA/MPAA lobby, and backs ACTA. No copyright and/or patent reform for you, American citizens!

There's too many people fighting/grousing about the Govt. bailouts, lack of jobs, etc., to worry about such an esoteric bunch of legislation

The fear propaganda is a winner. Keep the little people scared and distracted so they don't notice really important issues moving forward. Make the people fear illigal imigration so they don't realize that the loss of jobs is caused by internal forces. Make the people fear nebulous outsiders so they don't realize the loss of freedom as government imposes wet-dream laws they've been wishing for but could never put in place in the past.

Sadly, this is a frequent and powerful tool for manipulating a populace; it's not unique to US governance.
