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".

This is another great example of silly political word-games.

My guttural reaction to that headline when I read it was "ummm 'taxes' cough, that feels like piracy too".

You do realize that taxes have gone down in the last 24 months, and are now at their lowest level in 60 years, right?

I ask because there seems to be an implication in your statement that someone is "pirating" more of your money than usual through taxation.

Taxes are down ... that's hilarious!

And yes, that's exactly what I was hinting at.
