I have long believed that the Santa Tracker was a fraudulent government operation. I really began to suspect the conspiracy when I grew out of childhood; about when I got my first college apartment. I noticed that not only did Santa not visit on Christmas Eve (despite a number of sting operations with video cameras), but that NORAD's Santa Tracker had him placed right over my area while these non-visits occurred. I don't know what to believe anymore. I don't really think it's Santa delivering those presents anymore; he's just outsourcing to my parents via UPS. Everything is tainted by corporatism now.

I'm not the one chaining endless strands of causality together and slapping a completely irrelevant pet agenda into the middle of it. WTF does SOPA have to do with this? Unless you think it's the CIA and their black helicopters making Sony issue take-down requests. Can't be, because that would be kooky.

Nowhere do I even imply that this is about money for Sony

No, but I am. Sony is not going to financially ruin itself, potentially shutter its multi-billion dollar film studio, out all of its own email and destroy multiple exec's careers out of solidarity with US foreign policy. It's ludicrous to suggest it.

Logic is a systematic method of coming to the wrong conclusion with confidence.
