Google "Google is considering ditching the U.S. Chamber of Commerce out of frustration with its support for legislation that would force Internet companies to police websites that peddle pirated movies and fake Viagra. The rumblings of a defection - a potentially serious blow to one of Washington's most powerful lobbies - come weeks after Yahoo left the Chamber in October, largely over its support of Sen. Patrick Leahy's online piracy bill, the PROTECT IP Act." What, the US Chamber of Commerce is a front for the pharmaceutical and content industries? I'm shocked.

i dislike the usage of the words "hate crime" or "hate speech" as it is not universal. In sweden a black person can not be sentenced for "hate crime" unless it is against gay people. Black gay people can pretty much get away with any of those "crimes". I just say crime is crime no matter whom you are doing it against and race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation does NOT matter.

Is this somehow related to this Nordic cinematographic masterpiece? ;) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gayniggers_from_Outer_Space (and to be fair, I wouldn't blame you if, additionally, you just don't personally like the basic premise of its plot ;) )

Heey...! How come nobody can tell the difference between Denmark and Sweden (apart from virtually no difference, of course... ) ?
