    Life-Altering Copyright Lawsuits Could Come to Regular People Under a New Law In the Senate

    Thread Starter: Swordsmyth

    The Senate Judiciary Committee intends to vote on the CASE Act, legislation that would create a brand new quasi-court for copyright infringement claims. We have expressed numerous concerns with the legislation, and serious problems inherent with the bill have not been remedied by Congress before moving it forward.

    Will 500 Troops To Saudi Arabia Really Make Us Safer?

    Thread Starter: PAF

"It's going to be a very cold winter." So just to be on the safe side, Oyarde told his tribe that the...
