You probably remember the online outrage over the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) copyright enforcement proposal. Last week, the Department of Commerce's Internet Policy Task Force released a report on digital copyright policy that endorsed one piece of the controversial proposal: making the streaming of copyrighted works a felony.

This man has been such a deception.

"This man has been such a deception."

I've been saying that for years. No one wanted to listen.
In the end, he'll probably get his way because he'll throw a fit, stomp his feet, cry, blame republicans, white people, rich people, working people, promote more class warfare, get everyone that doesn't fall into above mentioned classes riled up to the point where they can't see beyond his words and then attempt to sign it into law via executive order.

They were listening, but they were ignoring you because they don't have a simplistic idea.

Even for international observers like me who preferred Obama (and not just because of the alternative) weren't thinking he can do nothing bad. Only a naive person with a poor understanding of politics thinks the head of a non-dictatorial government can actually do everything they claim.

If I didn't know better, Americans actually want a dictator, but they think the dictator would align with their own beliefs because their own beliefs are obviously the best, otherwise they wouldn't hold them.

It's not like Romney would have been any better. We need more political parties on equal footing with the other two minus the bribes by corporations.

Many people have observed that the really weird thing is, that Obama continues on the same path as George Bush. Even though Obama differed from Bush early, the same politics are now done.

No matter what president, USA continues with the same course of actions. Republican or democrat does not matter. Why is that?
