Okay. It's not about ending the invasion of Iraq, but at least they're standing up for strong American values. You see, the president is not doing enough to help business. The United States has a serious trade deficit and the solution is -- well maybe it's not a solution, but it's the Democratic policy -- stronger intellectual property enforcement. Here is what Nancy Pelosi, the radical congressman from San Francisco says in challenging the weak-kneed policies of President Bush:
"The President's failed economic policies have resulted in another month of record trade deficits, once again highlighting the need for a new direction," said House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. "We must pursue an aggressive trade enforcement agenda so that U.S. businesses and workers do not pay the price for countries that refuse to play by the rules."

Michael's political views are rather to the left of mine - or perhaps I should say that mine are rather to the right of his. On this subject our left and right wings are in full agreement. And sadly despite Pelosi's comments, both parties seem equally as obnoxious on IP issues.
"We need to shut down the Internet Mr President. It's being used for unlawful mass replication of binary digits. We need to kick ourselves back into the stone age if we're gonna protect our intellectual property and reestablish our economic superiority"
"What are 'binary digits' again?"
"Ones and zeroes sir."
"Ah. Like billions of dollars?"
"Absolutely Mr President!"
