I think Bill Maher said it best (this isnt a direct quote): Just like the founding fathers couldn't have foreseen a world with automatic weapons/assault rifles when they wrote the second amendment, they couldn't have foreseen a world with religious fanatics with potential access to access to nuclear weapons that can destroy a whole city in the blink of an eye when they wrote the fourth amendment.

If Bill Maher said it best, then it wasn't never said well. The second amendment is clear and purposefully vague as it is not an enumeration of the natural right, but a broad protection of the most important in protecting the first amendment. Anything the Congressional funded Armed Services shall procure shall be procurable by the People - aka the militia.

Submission + - The Pirate Bay to stay in Sweden

paulraps writes: The Pirate Bay has ditched plans to buy its own nation so as to avoid international copyright laws. One of the founders says that the operation is now less vulnerable to police raids in Sweden now that it has spread its servers around different locations. Amusingly, they may still buy an island, but for more modest reasons: "We have 20,000 to 25,000 dollars to spend. Really we just want somewhere we can name The Pirate Bay, so we can look on Google Maps and find ourselves there," said Tobias Andersson, who, despite running the most poopular site in Scandinavia, still works as an electrician.
