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.

Maybe STOP the Bullshit?

I'm talking on behalf of EU citizens who grew tired of all american bullshits. We were allies and so on, but that alliance has began to stink.

If US citizens are happy with their elected government, if they are happy with their military killing hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians across the globe, if they are happy with their government torturing thousands of civilians in secret or not so secret military bases, if they are proud and happy of their PATRIOT act who allows their government to spy on them without a judge notice (US spying of EU citizens is ok since the beginning of the Echelon program), if they are happy to be scanned, tagged, brainwashed, what's the problem.

I don't think we should help America kill innocent people and I don't think we should permit EU to become like US. We STILL have rights and freedom here. Let's keep them.
