First the Senate caved, then the House. I’m depressed. Wasn’t the last election supposed to mean something? And what about that oath everyone takes to defend the Constitution against all enemies? Oh, wait … Pogo explained all that years ago.

It doesn’t make me any happier that erosions to our rights are justified in the name of overcoming new technologies. That’s what you hear constantly in the absurd crackdown on supposed copyright violators.

Update, August 21st – Threat Level just reported that the teen charged with piracy for filming twenty seconds of Transformers to show her little brother plead guilty to avoid jail time and a much higher fine.  What a great way to grow your market.
