Instead of following the suggestion of a coalition of tech companies, academics and computer programmers that the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) was too oppressive and should be scaled back, congress is now determined to EXPAND the powers of the federal government to combat copy protections through a new amendment to the DMCA.

Socialism has been with us for some time and for many people who are convinced they speak for the best of all of us it has been touted as the only true humane form of government.

I love everyone having access to discuss and expand upon the traditional journalism as we have seen over the past few years.

Rep Cynthia McKinney, accused of striking a Capitol Hill police officer, stated Friday that the officer started the incident by “inappropriately touching and stopping” her after she walked past a security checkpoint.

Why else, because the policeman is a white male and she is a black female.
