Awesome!
I was hoping the military could arrest Obama after they pass NDAA2012 and Congress too.
They didn't know they were passing these laws for our convenience, did they?


I think there is a penalty for treason on the books already.... maybe if we enforced it, with a rope, publicly... we would have less of this crap going on....

Yeah right, they'll just say "We're the government, we can do whatever we want", and they'll get away with it. Take, for example, the insider trading. I'm pretty sure your average joe would get thrown into jail for that, but members of the government? Nah, they're above the law.


Exactly. Screw us peons, our lords are above the law. Who said Feudalism was dead?

First jobs are shipped to where repressive regimes keep the population from getting the rights and compensation workers have in "socialist" countries, then the big whining commences, when people spend less, because they have less.

People who can afford it, bug games, buy BluRays and watch them on their high end equipment.


Exactly. It's not like they are hurting really... they are making record profits.

Hit the nail on the head with this one. Who actually gets in trouble for internet piracy? I've seen hyped up news stories since I was a kid, but has anyone ever met someone who got caught downloading anything? I've been stealing music (first), movies, and software since napster and limewire, not to mention torrents. Never received a letter in the mail or anything of the sorts. Furthermore, when presented with evidence, what kind of idiot would cop to doing it? "I left my wireless AP unlocked for a few days during the time of download, I guess we had someone connect without permission".

Ok so when joe public gets caught people cry that you can't trust an IP for any number of reasons but now its fine?
Another thing do you all think that the people that work in these places are a hivemind and all mirror each other? or do you think just maybe that the people who work there are just as differeant than you or I?

Something for you to think on, with anon tactics of late how do you know these aren't all planted?
