11. Why does ICE and DOJ consider this a more important priority for their time and resources than catching the illegals streaming across the border?

I happen to be in the TV sports programming business. If they were stealing from your business, I don’t think you would feel the same way.

Stealing is stealing.

Does the NFL have a pay for view site to watch the Super Bowl?

Explain to me how streaming sports video sites are a danger to homeland security?

Not sure, but it probably involves James Harrison.

“We needed another national security agency to protect us from websites that stream sports events?”

I guess copyright infringement = terrorism.
Which is not that far from criticizing economic/monetary policy = terrorism.
Or from subversive speech = terrorism.

This is why the Dept. of Homeland Security should never have been created. In the right hands, we (probably) don't have too much to worry about. But, in the wrong hands as it is now, a rogue admin like this one will abuse their power without blinking an eye. I say we scrap every agency or little fiefdom that has been created in the government in the past 10 years and go back to what we had beforehand.

"TV sports programming business"

A misnomer if there ever was one.

I think you’re right. Meantime 60,000+ real terrorists set up shop throughout the land.

The “funny” (not haha) thing about this is how the Feds work zealously to protect corporate and commercial interests from being pirated, but do zip to protect the USA citizen rights of employment from being pirated by illegal Mexicans.

Think about the double standard for a second.

Employers are able to hire pirated American citizen labor (i.e. illegal Mexicans) at big discounts while US citizens are prohibited from buying pirated CDs or DVDs at discounted rates. Our pro illegal immigrant/corporate policies protect the few while harming many Americans. Our government should be about protecting “we the people” first. Not record labels.

NFL franchises that have corrupted politicians and have stolen billions from taxpayers to build their overpriced, plush box seat stadiums, and then overpay their players are terrorists IMHO. Let the taxpayers who were ripped off take a free cut of their action.

In the opening days just after Sept. 11th, The Onion had an article about Al Quida doing a telemarketing scam for their fundraising. It’s worth at least making a joke that osama’s folks are selling pirated copies of “I am Legend” to finance what they do.
Cause that would be the only justification of Homeland Security being involved.
Still the name “Homeland Security” chills me to the bone.
