    You have now fallen from grace. You don't even care about the constitutional question being raised by this "treaty". I want to know where the Senate was in all this? There are NO treaties without Senatorial approval.

    This is a complete cop-out from taking the responsibility of delving deeper into the implications of what this and similar legislation are going to do to freedom of information and speech in the United States.

    People who think this is purely about copyright are dead wrong. After Wikileaks, there is no way that the U.S. government - or any major government - wants to allow the general public the freedom to disseminate information. The press, and now increasingly the internet, are being roped off to ensure that you stay nice and ignorant.

    But keep touting the theft line... it's the same line congress uses to take away your freedoms, just like "safety".

    Maggie is a definite left-winger....no doubt about it now.

    Seems to me like she's leaning to the right. But I can be politically color-blind at times.

    She is expressing a definitive right wing ideology. The government should have zero right to police the internet, this is just going to get worse and worse.
