Legal Despite doing what I think are some great things for the American people, the Obama administration has a dark side. Joe Biden and many others on staff come straight from the RIAA camp, and it shows. Today, the Obama administration disregarded every US law relating to theft and copyright by stating that piracy is "flat, unadulterated theft".

Tom: doing what I think are some great things for the American people

Yep, bankers, Hollywood and rich people love him.

The unemployed middle class is having second thoughts.

I agree...this posted article and header is too politically *hot*. This action by the administration is consistent with its constituency and policies. RIAA and other "big hollywood" interests are very solid democrat. Time to move along.

Sadly, I doubt it will be within my lifetime that we have a Libertarian or other freedom-loving party member as President, and even then Congress will still be full of the usual greedy, ignorant rats.

The U.S. democratic system is great when it works, but getting it to truly work for the people is the problem. If nothing else, I think political lobbying should be outlawed; the people may vote in the representatives but the corporations spend millions to change the way those representatives think and vote. It's not fair to the people.

@Berend de Boer - if I could mod you up I would. It's amazing how the Dems claim that the Repubs is all about protecting the rich. Meanwhile, the rich are all rallying for the Dems - there is a reason why. Obama is nothing but a shill for big money and has done more damage before his 1st term is up than the previous administration did in two entire terms. And no, I wasn't a fan of the previous administration either. The dollar is weaker (while Obama continues to have more money printed and spent for his lobbyists), unemployement is horrible (but it's okay, but it's "change" right?).......
