Osama Bin-Laden IS NOT in afghanistan, its been said hes taken refuge in China. DO YOU SEE THAT ON TV? ??? ? ? ? Nope, because then we would be in Afghanistan for no reason. But you know what, we got a money and oil hungry president in office guys so it doesn't matter anyway.

As of right now, the ****ing GENIUS politicians are making the country fail. Economy is dieing and they are still pushing GET THEM TERRORISTS!!! lol, for petes sake....

How about focusing on a new tax system that doesn't break the nation and actually builds the economy like Ireland or the UK. NOO we have to go to war with the money from our tax payers and RAISE EVERY NATURAL RESOURCE!!!!!

ASDFASDFASDF AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!
The UK is the last place you want to be following when it comes to taxes. A fifth of our annual wage goes to the bloody government. Then we pay taxes on everything else as well. Yet we see nothing in return, sure we have free health care, but that's falling apart atm.

Honestly, it is like day light robbery in this country.

He was obviously only saying so because media giants contribute to his campaign.

How would downloading a program for free somehow cause the terrorists to get money?

The funny thing is... is doesn't.

The only money that any piracy sites or people make is ad revenue or donations. And I doubt they earn much money in donations, and I'm pretty sure ThePirateBay isn't owned by Al Qaeda.

Bin Laden is a ghost, and likely STILL CIA. He's an excuse for the Western governments to do whatever the frak they want - that's why they keep relating everything to terrorism. He's the bogey-man that they use to scare the sheeple into compliance with an ever tighter hold over their lives.

As far as economic woes - it's simple, make as much noise as it takes to get your governments to transition back to REAL money, instead of monetized credit. The real reason they don't want to use precious metals for money is that such money is completely independent of borders or controls, and it makes the bearer of such coins independent. It doesn't matter how much the economy of the country that minted the gold coin tanks, gold is gold - it's accepted in far more countries than VISA or Mastercard.

And Iced, it's armed robbery, because what happens in the UK when you don't pay their taxes? In the US they hold you at gunpoint, bound you, kidnap you, and enslave you for a X-number of years as a warning to others to continue paying into their protection racket. Understand the thugs in power don't actually have the right to do such things under our Constitution, but they were allowed to start small long ago and now short of an armed revolt I don't see the people getting that power away from them.

Considering that a majority of pirated material originates in China, shouldn't they be saying piracy supports communism? I guess with the Soviet Union gone, communism isn't a scary enough word, so they swapped it with "terrorism".

Not to mention the people who run sites like the Pirate Bay seem to support freedom a lot more than any politician does.

There be our issue, the wrongdoers are the ones who support freedom and justice for all. (So to say.)

At the pace we're going. Everything in America will either cause cancer or aid in terrorism or both.

I can see it.
