I'm not going to address your entire post, but I would like to inform you that the $75m cap only applies if BP follows the minimal safety regulations. Also, BP bribed (implicitly or explicitly) MMS regulators with cocaine, sex, and more. And BP is a MNC. Don't act as if it is viewed any other way. Many Americans are stockholders. And yes, US foreign policy is hypocritical. Get the fuck over it. That's how world politics works. Hell, that's how politics in general works.

Look at all the information is listed on Chilling Effects. We know the owner of the copyright (Sony Music, Universal, and Warner seem to be popular on their takedown list), the song titles, and even what links they want removed. I'm changing my homepage from thepiratebay to chillingeffects.

Uh, that's the most ignorant thing I've heard today. The overwhelming majority of people I know (including people who have relatively high incomes) don't always have to have the "latest, shiniest car." If you're an American, I advise you to stop hanging around shallow fucking people. If you're not an American, I advise you to stop being such an ignorant prick.

Yes, we will be going to OSI, Mars, and Pluto, but not necessarily in that order. -- Jeffrey Honig
