Securing The Homeland Against The Sith

Apparently, there are no more terrorists to be tracked down, because this week Homeland Security agents decided to redirect their efforts away from things like "Homeland Security," and towards busting people for illegally downloading copies of "Star Wars: Episode 3-Revenge of the Sith."

Seriously.

I'm so glad the war on terror has been won...I only fear that begun the clone wars have.

I take it your main objection is that "Homeland Security" agents were used to enforce the law, and not with the law itself? I agree that Homeland Security should not be concerning itself with copyright infringement; but I also think that copyright infringement is a serious crime and not the trivial matter that people make it out to be.

I also don't understand that lead of that Yahoo article about Bush's reaction to stem-cell advances. What did Bush actually say? I couldn't find a quote where he specifically responded to the South Korean advances. I am not skeptical, it just didn't satsify my curiosity as to what his reaction really was.

Bush is a fuck-wit and I hope he dies an absurd death. But I also hope to see him represented accurately.

That is my objection, yes. I'm pretty sure the homeland security budget wasn't intended to provide shock troops for the protection of copyrights. I do think it's reasonabl to have copyright protection, though recent efforts to expand it have struck me as questionable.

I'll try to find the Bush's quote vis-a-vis the stem cell issue. I appreciate your call for accuracy!
