Blog pandemonium


Supposedly, the mandarins that oversee the election process in the states came THIS CLOSE to trying to regulate blogs.

So everyone is all in a tizzy because the mandarins that oversee the election process in the states came THIS CLOSE to imposing rules and regulations on bloggers during election periods . Blah blah blah give me a freaking break. This was never going to happen, simply for the fact that there must be a least one person employed by the FEC that has actually used a computer at least once in their lives. Which means that eventually some mope was going to clue in that web pages can be hosted anywhere, and all those rules would do is drive a shitload of digital business to hosting companies in other countries. As much as your average republican hates to admit it, U.S. laws don't work so well in countries that aren't actually the U.S.

Of course, when the hosting moves out of the country, so do the dollars that pay for it. Rules in = money out. This isn't transmission repair, Jethro ... eventually one of those dorks would figure it out.

In the meantime, maybe they could take a look at some of those other nagging issues. Like, oh, making sure that the guy who gets the most votes actually wins. You know, the little things.
