SOPA Nyet, TSA Da!

(From here via Tam)

This one is also very true:


Our government is big on freedom in the abstract. By "our government", I am referring to both parties, for each one has areas where they want to kill off freedom in order to satisfy some pea-brained constituency. One thing is for sure, there are very few corporations that promote freedom. Most will gladly sell the tools of recession, whether it is internet-blocking software, data-mining to identify dissenters or electronic torture devices, to whomever will pay for them.

And it is not for nothing that ol' Rupert Murdoch damn near blew a blood vessel over the widespread opposition to SOPA.
