Kuccinich and Paul were two of the few nay votes against H.R. 4279, establishing Congress(no pun intended) as the official pimps of RIAA and Hollywood.According to this, the gov't can seize your computer for having one unauthorised MP3 file. Also, guess what(?) Gov't has new reason to go fishiN' anytime anywhere! Boooooo!

This needs to be stopped:


“H.R. 4279, Prioritizing Resources and Organization for Intellectual Property Act of 2008, is gaining momentum in Congress. It passed the House a few days back. It would allow the Feds to seize hardware that has even one file coming from ‘dubious origins,’ e.g. downloaded from P2P. If passed into law, the bill would establish an Intellectual Property Enforcement Division within the office of the Deputy Attorney General. Rep. John Conyers says the goal is to ‘prioritize intellectual property protection to the highest level of our government.’”

In detail, what does this bill do? This:


This legislation gives the government the power to seize property that facilitates the violation of intellectual property laws. The legislation also mandates the formation of a formal Intellectual Property Enforcement Division within the office of the Deputy Attorney General to enforce this madness. In addition, a new office called the Office of the United States Intellectual Property Enforcement Representative is created within the Executive Office of the President. If you boil it down to brass tax [sic], this legislation allows the U.S. government to lawfully seize your computer if it has one unauthorized mp3 file on its hard drive. It also provides the authorization for the creation of offices within the executive branch to enforce a law that is impossible to enforce.

This is not what the country needs. Hell, if this passes, I would not be surprised to hear law enforcement seizing computers to use in criminal investigations because a copyrighted picture was found in your browser cache from simple surfing. This is a terrible, terrible bill. This bill will redefine the concept of prosecutorial fishing expeditions and asset seizure.

Outside of Undernews and some blogs, this story hasn't even been mentioned. The Democrat establishment is perfectly happy with this, since an impeachment of Bush would shed light on their own complicity.

Still, it's amazing to think that there used to be a country called the United States of America that had a Constitution and noble laws. Whatever happened to that place?

It's great that Kucinich has complied such a nice list of Bush crimes. To bad these impeachment articles are quite 11th hour, and unlikely to move forward.

While I really want to see Bush punished for his crimes, I think impeachment would be less effective then waiting until Bush is out of office. Throw the book at him after he looses his diplomatic protections as a head of state, then he can sit in a cage in Guantanimo Bay and rot for the rest of his days. Bush deserves no better.

More realisticly, I hope that Bush finds himself unable to leave the US because of war crimes warrants out for him in the rest of the world.

While Bush deserves to spend life in a prison for his lies and treason, that outcome is unlikely. So Bush really needs to be Pinocheted, unable to travel, internationally condemed for the remainder of his days, and living essentially under house arrest in Crawford Tx.
