Legal The US is really ramping up its war on intellectual property infringement, a war which I'm sure will be just as successful, cheap and supported by the people as the wars on drugs and terrorism. The US has started seizing the domain names of various websites through ICANN - not because owners of these sites were convicted of anything, but merely because complaints have been filed against them. Anyone want to take a guess how long it will be before the US government blocks WikiLeaks? Update: The blocks function outside of the US too. In other words, the US is forcing its views upon the rest of the world once again.

Part of the fun of having an opinion is mocking the opposing opinions. I don't mock people for the opinions they hold, I just mock their position. They may feel mocked by extension, but that's part of the risk of having an opinion: the chance someone might disagree and find it ludicrous or even reprehensible.

Mock away, if you wish. I normally apply this logic to my... general dislike... of religion. People have the right to believe what they want to believe, but I won't be forced to respect something I find entirely ridiculous, nor will I force them to respect the idea there is no God. I have a few religious friends, and out of respect for them, not their faith, I still shut up and bow my head while they say grace.

Anyway, the point is, I had an onion tied to my belt - which was the STYLE at the time...
