Ok here is my take on some of the major stories in the news today. I will state that I am biased and I embrace it. Obama what are you thinking? When you need a boost you drop a bomb. He has rejected the Keystone Project which would have brought oil from Canada to the United States. He listened to some tree huggers and instead of doing the right thing has given in to the environmental lobbyist.

This was a major shock to Canada and in a time where jobs and the economy are on peoples minds this was a dumb move in my biased opinion. It hurts Canada and the United States so he get a double whammy bomb.

Bomb number two goes out to the Captain of the cruise ship that partially sunk off the coast of Italy. There were 4,200 people on board and guess what ? The Captain left early. He left with passengers still on board. This is a disgrace to all sea captains in this world of ours. Everyone knows that it is passengers first , crew second and the last to leave is the Captain. This is understood when you take on the position of captain. A number of people died and the investigation of what really happened will go on for months...but if it is true that the captain jumped ship and was more concerned about his life than the lives of his passengers, Houston we have a problem.

Bomb number three goes out to the legislators who have introduced the Protect Intellectual Property Act and Stop Online Piracy Act. I think we can agree that the pirated use of copy written material and intellectual property needs to be protected. When you look closer into this you may find more than you bargained for. These bills if approved could kill innovation on the internet and may violate some basic freedoms like freedom of speech. Do we really want to give the power to some big brother agency to make decisions that could take down certain web sites at their whim. I am going to post a video below that I believe it talks about the issues involved in an intelligent way. I would love to have your opinion in regards to SOPA and PIPA. What do you think should be done to protect copyright laws? Are you ok with the way things are? What bothers you or excites you about SOPA OR PIPA. Watch the video and share your thoughts. This is a major deal and thanks for a strong grass roots movement that has protested these bills it has gained national attention. The question as always , SO WHAT DO YOU THINK?
