I know one struggling indie singer, she's refused to play ball with the labels that have come sniffing around (refused to be slutted up) and her record sales are the difference between making a living as a musician, or having to give it up.
It's easy to justify pirating music from big-name artists, but in reality, most people don't bother to make that distinction, they just want free music, they don't care the slightest about the repercussions.

Explain away this one:

"Controversial Theories – We support objective teaching and equal treatment of all sides of scientific theories. We believe theories such as life origins and environmental change should be taught as challengeable scientific theories subject to change as new data is produced. Teachers and students should be able to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of these theories openly and without fear of retribution or discrimination of any kind."

There is no scientific controversy regarding evolution. This is merely a way to get Creationism taught in public schools.
