In the News "The increase is a sign that the search engine can no longer afford to operate in a Silicon Valley vacuum. For years, Google had a reputation for indifference inside the Beltway. It took Google until May 2005 to set up a presence in Washington and even then, its headquarters consisted of a one-man lobbying shop in suburban Maryland." Do the Americans among you just accept this? Is this normal? Why aren't you guys turning to the streets when your country is quite clearly being bought left and right? I mean, I'm sure this happens everywhere, but on this scale? Gives me the creeps.

So why do most Americans not protest? I think it's pretty self-evident - it doesn't work. As for solutions, I don't have any in my back pocket. Maybe when the USA finally collapses, the public will at least come to understand why, though I wouldn't count on that either.

WARNING: This is a intended as a joke, and should not be taken as a serious suggestion!

There's more than one way to protest in a land that promotes the right to keep and bear arms; and Americans do have a long and proud history of (both successful and failed/attempted) presidential assassinations.

Let's be honest here - you probably only have to blow away a few politicians and the rest will suddenly remember what democracy is.

Thing is, as long as they can cherish this largely meaningless law, as long as you give them guns, they're happy ...maybe just with the guns and not much else.
