electricbleachers: It's the putz in the helmet! (Yuppie Short Bus)

I thought you were smarter than that. Oh wait, no I didn't. You dunderheads wouldn't know you farted if you didn't feel your ass-cheeks vibrate.

Senator Dodd, thou hast the brains of a pissant, milord. Though I can believe it, what with some of the stuff like the one committeeperson who apparently believes that the island of Guam is actually floating and could capsize if too much stuff were put on one side.

What I'm getting at is this royal attempt at displaying the sheer ignorance of those who have no business being in the positions of power they're in. Namely this:

http://www.mpaa.org/resources/c4c3712a-7b9f-4be8-bd70-25527d5dfad8.pdf

"some technology business interests are resorting to stunts that punish their users or turn them into their corporate pawns" Ex-fucking-scuse me?! What the hell is the MPAA doing? Exactly that, wanting everyone to be corporate pawns, you're all just pissed because they won't be YOUR corporate pawns who have to shove money into your pockets just for the "priviledge" of breathing or daring to look at something.

"It is also an abuse of power given the freedoms these companies enjoy in the marketplace today." Like what the big business backers Dodd and the MPAA have in their pockets are trying to do right now? Mr. Kettle, there's a Mr. Pot on line 1 for you.

"intentionally skew the facts to incite their users in order to further their corporate interests." Which is exactly what the MPAA and other corporate intrests backing PIPA and SOPA are doing!

"It is our hope that the White House and the Congress will call on those who intend to stage this “blackout” to stop the hyperbole and PR stunts and engage in meaningful efforts to combat piracy.” And it is our hope that the lot of you will take off your greed hats and put on your common sense hats, that is if you haven't lost them already, and see that what you're doing will be what kills your industries, not what you're professing to be protecting against. Because if you want to get technical, YOU'RE supporting piracy by putting your stuff out in the first place. Point is, if people want it, especially the really hard to find stuff, and you're refusing to let them at it all the while dangling it like a carrot in front of their noses, don't be surprised when the rabbit bites you or just wanders off, leaving you with nothing either way.

If you do manage by some wild chance in hell to actually push them through, PIPA and SOPA will come back to bite the lot of you in the ass big time. Don't think it won't because it will. People just won't buy your crap, won't go to movies, buy DVDs, or stream any of it. They won't watch TV which would put the squeeze on advertisers, then where will you be? Out of a white-collar job completely just because your greed got the better of you.

Nuff said. Peace out.
