DR Who is Science Fantasy, not Science Fiction. In Science Fiction you have laws of physics that you follow, and things are supposed to happen logically. In Science Fantasy the author decides what they want to happen, then make up a "Sciency" excuse for it. Things like you can zip to anywhere and anywhen, but you can't pack an advanced first aid kit that fits in your pocket.

Restated as 32% of Americans admit they disagree with American copyright law. Passing laws that most people don't agree with causes the people to stop respecting all laws, leading to them not respecting the government. This is a road that eventually ends with the ruling class dying in a violent revolution.

Comment Re:Well, duh. Mass transportation is a slush fund. (Score 1) 408

The Republicans are working hard to remove the welfare state. Open borders for workers would lead to open borders for buyers, where you could go to Mexico and buy cheap clothes and take it home without paying tariffs.

You hire an H1B for the job. Will you also hire and train an American to fill that job? No, that would be crazy, the job is filled. So ten years from now that "temporary" hole is now a permanent skills shortage. And when that H1B decides to go home he can start up a company to do the same job for half the price of the American one. H1B doesn't just export jobs, it exports the entire industry.

If Obama likes how the NSA is spying on Americans, (he is their boss, if he didn't like what they were doing he could make it stop), why would he pardon someone who publicly complained about that behavior and embarrassed the US government?
