Re: Megaupload Shut down by FBI

Pretty shameful of our government. How the hell do our feds raid and arrest 5 people in New Zealand? We're fucking global terrorist.

Quote:
Although many members of Congress have just this week changed their stance on the controversial Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA, the raid on Megaupload Thursday proved that the feds don’t need SOPA or its sister legislation, PIPA, in order to pose a blow to the Web.
UltraUpload Coming Soon.

You say this like it's a recent development. Our government has always been pretty high on the list of global fuck-alls. I'm just waiting for the proverbial shit to fly.

Re: Megaupload Shut down by FBI

Yeah, the U.S. government went over and got them. Four of the seven arrested were taken in New Zealand, including the company's founder. Reported CEO of MegaUpload, rap producer Swizz Beatz (WTF?!) isn't facing any charges though.

It wasn't like the U.S. government just went over and did this on their own. It was a joint effort with authorities there as well. According to several reports, MegaUpload's multiple servers in Virginia helped make the case fall under our jurisdiction.

It's far from recent. It's just getting worse, fast. I mean, how much more of this are people going to take? Shit's getting old, and it's about time we got knocked off of our pedestal.

Re: Megaupload Shut down by FBI

You guys are slowly ambling off your pedestal on your own, it's just that no rising powers (Russia, China, India, etc.) are taking the initiative to exert power globally. Labour costs in China are rising though, so manufacturing jobs are beginning to return to the US and you guys might end up recovering.

Re: Megaupload Shut down by FBI

I'm not even sure if fixing our ludicrous debt problem would really solve anything though. If they keep fucking with our liberties and our rights, expect shit to hit the fan. With more and more Occupy movements, showing how crazy police brutality is over here, the Patriot Act, The National Defense Authorization Act, SOPA &PIPA(probably won't pass) and the like, our People are finally starting to wake up.

Re: Megaupload Shut down by FBI

Mentioning the Occupy movement right after "...fucking with our liberties..." kind of made me laugh, because everyone involved in the Occupy movement wants to fuck with the liberties of the 1%.

Police brutality is nothing in the States. Ooooohhhh, some people got pepper sprayed or beaten, that's totally as bad as the thousands dead at the hands of the Russian-backed Syrian military.

All the legislation you mentioned was most likely done with good intentions but poor methods. The "waking up" that people are doing is realizing that they've elected some morons in the past and should really start living up to the "representative" part of Representative Democracy.

Re: Megaupload Shut down by FBI

I didn't mention Occupy because I agree with the movement, I personally think it's stupid and is causing more harm than good. I only mentioned it to point out recent cases of police brutality in the states.

Police brutality is just a small, small piece of the broken and corrupt puzzle that is America. I would never compare police brutality to thousands of people dieing, that would be like comparing lil wayne to John Lennon. Americas hands aren't clean either.

All the legislation I mentioned should have never passed, Americans as a People are literally handing over all of our power, to an already overpowered government. We seriously have a country full of retarded fucks electing older, slightly more retarded fucks. People just act like it's ok too. The majority of Americans are ignorantly bliss, and are more concerned with what's happening on there favorite show on television, then they are the well being of there own country, which pretty much affects the world.

Re: Megaupload Shut down by FBI

They have the power to take down the former 13th largest site on the Internet, and yet they still want to pass SOPA/PIPA? They have enough power as it is. It's also a big smack in the face to everyone since they did it the very next day after sites like Google and Wikipedia put into action their "fight SOPA/PIPA" movements.
