Letters from the Lunar Outpost

Some men make fortunes, but not to enjoy them; for, blinded by avarice, they live to make fortunes.
- Juvenal, Roman Satirical Poet (40-125 A.D.)

If this doesn’t show why SOPA is so misguided and completely wrongheaded, check out the fact that even it’s own co-sponsors are not in compliance with the proposed law!!!

From Jamie Lee Curtis Taete at vice.com:

Congressman Dennis Ross is a Copyright Violator

The above screencap shows the homepage of Florida congressman/SOPA co-sponsor/probable PIPA supporter Dennis Ross’ website.

SOPA Co-sponsor Dennis Ross is a Copyright Violator

Which features the appropriately titled illustration “Overweight Government Pig” by cartoonist John S. Pritchett. You’ll notice that Dennis cropped out the part where it says “© John Pritchett”. We contacted John, and he told us:

“To my knowledge, I did not license the usage of my “Overweight Govt. Pig” illustration to Dennis Ross.”

Wuh oh!

I felt it my duty as a law-abiding citizen to contact the Congressman and let him know of the offense:

Dear Congressman Ross,

This is to inform you that your use of the “overweight government pig” image at your website is in violation of copyright laws, and that your removal of the copyright holder’s name from the image shows premeditation and a willful disdain for said copyright laws on your part.

In keeping with the spirit of the draconian SOPA law which you support, we demand you blacklist your website and remove all traces of it from the Internet.

Thank you for your compliance. Long live Chinese-style totalitarian control of the Internet in America.

Sincerely,

Mike Cornelison

  • Mike: As a Canadian I am outraged that President Obama has, once again, held up the Keystone Pipeline. I realise he is pandering to the Ecos such as Daryl Hannah, etc., but this is so unrealistic from a pragmatic point of view. He and his followers apparently want us all to go “up the trees” again and wipe out the thousands of years of hard work it has taken for humans to evolve to the comfortable lifestyle he, and the rest of us, enjoy. It would be great if we could convert overnight to a fossil-free energy economy, but it is not so simple. In the meantime, do countries all grind to a halt because of a few utopians whose attitudes are totally divorced from reality and grounded in emotion?

    • Ameritopia indeed. Whatever happened to Obama’s mantra of “we can’t wait” when it came to jobs, anyways?

    • What I find stunning is Obama holds up the pipeline and then blames the GOP. November cannot come soon enough.
