Yepperz, I can see that happening quite a few times down the road. A few of the movies I've watched on Google movies were in AVI format, hence the whole thing got d/l ed into the cache while I was watching. I suppose they'll see that & immediately send out a letter.

If they can't even discern legal from illegal, we're all in trouble.....(like we're not already....)

Hi everyone
isn't about time to remind people of one of the most famous documents of all time and get back to the ideals it enshrined.

......We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. --Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government.......

cheers

Well....


I try to be like the weather, and follow the path of least resistance, but I have also tried to let my voice be known.

I have already sent emails to my Representatives.
Federal, State, and Local. To Start a Congressional Investigation into:
The "Abuse of "Certain In-Alienable Rights".
You need to tell them in your own words.

This should help for users in the USA:
Contact Elected Officials | USA.gov

For our Canadian Brethren:
Lists of Canadian Politicians

For our Latin American Brethren:
Contacting the Congress: A Citizen's Congressional Directory
You may contact the Mexican Embassy by e-mail or visit the Embassy website.
The U.S. Embassy in Mexico City is also on Facebook & Twitter.

My apologies that I could not find a more definitive link for our Universal Membership:
United Nations | Contact Us

Let your Voice be Heard!



I will wait until the dust has settled.
To see to ponder, if I have to re-double my efforts,
from what these Carpetbaggers have wrought.



I offer this to reflect on while we await the outcome.

I mean where does this end?

The patriot act and government spying wasn't bad enough I suppose, now they are giving the power to our own ISP's to spy on us all....really?

I wonder how many more excuses they will make up in order to circumvent the privacy rights of the people which are supposed to be guaranteed by constitution.

Be careful, at the rate things are going that kind of talk will get you locked up.

What planet are YOU living on....here on good old mother earth we realize that the media reports whatever agenda is pushed by the owners of said media group.....there used to be something called ethics in journalism but this died a horrible death when money became the end game of the media empires......if you were correct then we would actually get both sides of the story....anyone remember hearing a contrary viewpoint to any popular news story lately....didn't think so.

MSNBC......very liberal agenda
FoxNews....don't even go there
CNN...........depends on the story but usually more balanced than either of the
previous mentioned two networks. Really depends on the view point of
the presenter.

Rupert Murdoch and news corp......Now there's a shinning bastion of ethics in journalism, right?

Until the Sheeple start reading/researching things for themselves we will NEVER get the real information....remember that the US is the home field of Corporations getting person hood and the right to influence (Definition: buy off politicians), remember that the only real definition of an "honest politician" is "one who stays bought") politics in the name of freedom of Speech. I for one am beyond angry about the fact that politicians feel that they represent the party they claim allegiance to instead of the voters who elected them in the first place.....last time I checked....nobody elected the leaders of the respective political parties so who gave them the right to decide party policy.......who?

OK....done with my rant now.............................................. "punt"

You will at least be in good company in your cell block, I assume that most free thinking people will also be locked up with us and I look forward to the stimulating conversation.

Even if this move gets stopped, something else will replace it, and one way or another, it will end up the same. But this is only the tip of the iceberg, because much worse will follow. However, all that anyone can do is to fight one battle at a time (not all battles involve violence), and this is the one at hand.

Or do like me and just refuse to participate.
Vote Ron Paul, if for no other reason than that they don't want you to.

I was referring to Canadian news, but that's moot now.

Tell me more about this law.

Then tell me why the media should obey it.

Everywhere I look, the media is as culpable for the decline and fall as the government or any politician or political party you care to name.
Fox News' Lies Keep Them Out of Canada
Note that this is an American article, which is why the language isn't neutral.
What is sad is we now have Fox News North (SunTV) which means they can lie. What is even more sad is people believing the lies, then if you tell them "it's lies" they reply "why would they lie, they are the media".

How we are in trouble as a society people are extremely gullible, they will believe anything the TV tells them. We have Radio hosts trying to impose their right-wing views on society, I hear it everyday, why are the right so damn eager for everyone to hear them and ignore all others do they want a MadMax world ?
I just took a look at Sun news vs Fox news
Canada's Home for Hard News and Straight Talk
What I see: Somewhat boring stuff that may have a bit of a liberal slant, but nothing super provoking or obviously dishonest.
http://www.foxnews.com/
What I see: Definitely not that.
