Legal Yes, even more copyright and intellectual property stuff. We have several stories on this one today, so I figured I'd throw them all together. First and foremost, ACTA has finally been dragged out of the shadows and into the light (thanks to the EU parliament), so we can take a look at what's in there. Is it really as bad as everyone thinks it is? Short answer: yes. Long answer: Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees.

Monarchs are immune to a nifty American invention called "Campaign Contributions"


Hah! They're not immune to bribery, they just have a more truthful name for it.

No one gave a shit about Obama receiving $656,357,572 in campaign contributions. While if he had received even say a $1,000 bribe, it would have been breaking news on every new network in the US and considered a scandal.

Precisely. A bribe by any other name is still a bribe, even if we're too stupid as a people to see it.
