US Govt Backs Fat-Cats Against TaxPayers

As usual the fruits of "donations" from lobby groups rears is ugly and corrupt head once again with the consumer taking a fall at the expense of a few greedy corporate parasites.

From the moment the so-called "voluntary" six strikes agreement between the RIAA/MPAA and various ISPs came out, it was obvious that the Obama administration, in the form of VP Joe Biden's office and IP Czar Victoria Espinel, were involved. We had even discussed that. Now some more details have come out, as Christopher Soghoian received a response to his Freedom of Information Act request, seeking emails from government officials concerning the deal -- and, of course, it shows that Biden's office and Espinel were heavily, heavily involved... and almost exclusively on the side of the RIAA and MPAA.


Is it just me or should we all wonder what sort of lands we live in theses days that allow corruption of this sort to be uncovered almost daily and yet it seems to have such limited consequences for those acting against the populace for purely selfish gain and on behalf of those corrupting corporate theives willing to undertake such underhand activity ?.
