    This kind of lawlessness will continue unabated until rogue nations like Canada are brought to heel. God forbid they develop nuclear power or we’re all doomed.

    Just try it, and we’ll burn down your White House. Again.

    Oh, AND we’ll take away your Labatt Blue!

    If we went to war on Canada, I would join the Canadian Army (do they have a foreign legion?).

    Additionally, NDS was accused of doing the EXACT same thing in Europe a few years ago and conspiring to flood the market with pirated Canal+ satellite cards.

    People and their friggin’ agendas. Pleah!

    Are some of these corporations any different from the mafia? Or from crotch grabbin’ gangatas who “gots to git paid”? Or smash-and-grab meth heads stealing all the copper in America’s heartland?

    Sometimes this stuff makes me want to digitize every piece of media, and every trade secret, that I have access to and release it on BitTorrent.

    #3 – (hums) It burned burned burned, and weee’re the ones that did it..

    How is this story not the least bit surprising? “Oh we just paid him to reverse-engineered it, nothing wrong with that.” Hmm, can we reverse-engineer the skin of News Corp’s board of directors? I want to see what makes -them- tick.

    Um, I know about that case, but don’t get the joke. cough.

    Are you saying that Bill O’Reilly May have agendas? OK. I agree. Pervy and pushy agendas, even. And he works for a corporation. NewsCorp, in fact.

    If the joke is more than that, please explain. I don’t get it. Cough.
