Democracy is alive in FRANCE

Privacy or Piracy. That is the question. The answer is Privacy. That is what great people have shed blood for in the United States of America. I sit here on Christmas Eve, 2006 and wonder why the USA, the RIAA, and the MPAA just don’t get it.
Sure there is money being lost over piracy. Sure there is some legit complaint on copyright infringement. I just can’t buy into all of that though. Why? Because I’m an American. I served in the military, and have a honorable discharge. I have done my part for democracy, the democracy that men and women all over the world tonight are wondering if they will ever see a Christmas Eve 2007.
The RIAA, MPAA have a TON of money. They probably both threw a nice Holiday bash worth more then allot of their artists make. Does it take a rocket scientist to realize WHO is WRONG here?
Sorry to say this, but the country that I call home sometimes makes me wonder. Why is it that we have to look to European nations to lead the way in the basic parts of OUR constitution? That is the right to privacy. I hate to say it, but France is right, and America is wrong. America is treading on the wrong people. The consumers.
Christmas Eve 2006, I can bet there are tons of people – let’s be honest – tons of AMERICANS still going to AllOfMp3 dot com right now. There are tons of people also still buying the CD at a store. All these people just want to live their lives, enjoy music and videos, and basically be left alone to choose. Freedom. No invasion of our privacy. That is all we ask, and the RIAA and MPAA think it’s stealing.
The Grinch. Yes, that is what they are, both of them collectively together have embarrassed this blogger. It now takes Europe and other countries to lead the way. Wait a minue.. I know now — when I was serving my time and doing my 4 years to my honorable discharge the way it is suppose to be done – you all (the lawyers of the RIAA and MPAA) were out toying around in the Air National Guard and not showing up and getting that so called honorable discharge that can’t be found on record.
Technically Speaking, Merry Christmas Eve to all!
