Maybe Mr.Murdoch, you shouldn't have tried to cram control freak in with the real problems.

I know you guys can't help it. The idea of a lean, targeted piece of legislation seems never to occur to these fools.

what is really in danger here is their ability to capitalize over citizens, and good riddance too.


I agree with your whole post sir, but this line somehow reminded me of the movie Grapes of Wrath. No one cared one jot about the farmers who lost their incomes and farms because of advancing technology, and that sort of thing has happened a lot more and a lot more recently thanks to NAFTA and one way cruise trips of many former American Corportations.

So if we have had to suffer this sort of treatment many times, and still are, why in God's name should we care about rich guys getting a taste of their own medicine. Level playing field please! (Oof, I hate that phrase)

This is the real problem, the President announces that he will indeed oppose SOPA as written and you refer to him as "Obummer" in the very same breath that you use to describe his position as a "Huge Victory."

Based on the current GOP pattern of opposing everything Obama supports, even if it means abandoning a long held conservative position, I'm beginning to wonder if you people aren't just a little bit bipolar. Actually, I'm a little surprised that you didn't change your position entirely and come out in favor of SOPA.

I think Murdoch needs to keep his Aussie nose out of American politics.

Obama also was also supposedly against the NDAA, and his Administration spoke out against the indefinite detention of American citizens without a charge or trial, and even said they would veto it. But they lied, and he signed it into law. I guarantee a similar occurence with SOPA.

According to Senator Carl Levin (D-MI),

Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) on Senate floor explaining it was Obama who requested the provision for indefinite military detention of American citizens without charge or trial.

Why Obama Will Not Veto NDAA Military Detention of Americans: He Requested It.


The White House never responded to those remarks that I know of !!


also See the video of Levin on the Senate floor


The SOPA/PIPA fiasco will be the same crap

O Bummer?

What are you like ...12 or 13?




So what are you saying you support SOPA? Is this an admittance?



Where do you get that? You began a thread bashing the President BECAUSE he did what you wanted him to. It doesn't make much sense. You don't make sense and from that you get - I support SOPA?


That is quite a leap there grass hopper.

The government only rejects this because it's an election year. They will pass this, lobby groups have pockets deeper than us...so we lose. The government/Fed gave trillions away in secret bailouts, and then told us YEARS later.

I don't know...its not a great strategy to oppose something that Rupert wants in an election year. As a general rule it will usually be a career ending move.

If you read the twitter comments, you'll see when were "Rupert" says:

"Just been to google search for mission impossible. Wow, several sites offering free links. I rest my case."

First of all, how does he know they are legit links? Did he click on them to see? No.

Does he understand anything about online scams or phising. They guy is illiterate when it comes to technology, and just trusts the links he see's to be authentic.

It's on the internet, so it's must be real!


You couldn't pay me to watch those Mission Impossible movies(to date I have not seen a single one nor any of the lame twilight movies!).

The simple fact is Hollywood is putting out garbage, and everyone else would rather stream videos of cat's annoying dog's.

This is about control of information. You have to understand that we live in an age of monopoly wealth, meaning those who are wealthy got that way by stealing an edge over competitors and using law's and courts to enforce that edge indefinitely. A perpetual economic game of "gotcha".
