As an American who is profoundly angry and worried about SOPA, I find the support and assisance of our friends across the pon - wait, what? Oh, then fuck you, too. I get that you didn't like Bush very much, and that his every policy was agreed with 100% by every american, and that we all carry guns and own huntin' dawgs. But hey, I have no love lost for Blair or Brown, and honestly Cameron's euro-baiting is getting on my nerves too.
So what do we get? Near-universal hatred and disdain, and an absurdly arrogant "You're so worthless we don't need you anyway". Right. Google, Microsoft (sorry, guys, every large company in .eu isn't going to instantly switch to a flavor of linux not headquartered in the US). Ford, GE, Lockheed, Boeing, Intel, AMD? Hey, how about those useless little chipmakers, anyway? Ehh, just use CyrixInstead!
At any rate, it'll never happen. When money is at stake, greed finds a way.
The self-inflicted euro zone debt crisis is a vastly, vastly greater threat. Unfortunately, it seems that the euro zone is too busy bickering over etiquette to bother doing what everyone knows must be done.
And, of course, Britain, doing its best to use utter worldwide armageddon as a tool to pander to Daily Mail readers.
We've all got our problems, guys. And trust me, if your "makes 2008 look like a pinprick" debt contagion starts knocking at our door, I'll take an opportunity to sever all ties if I can get it.
