One thought on “Draconian US copyright rules made it easier for Volkswagen to cheat

  1. When Pope Francis Jorge Mario Bergoglio boarded the elevator alone with Fed Representative Speaker of the House John Andrew Boehner, a few days ago, a small fly on the wall recorded the following:

    Pope: “Don Boehner, why does the American Republican party think they own the world, and refuse to consider that burning fossil fuels has a detrimental affect on the whole planet’s survival?”

    Boehner (in tears): “Don Francis, I don’t personally believe that, but the oil companies have powerful lobbyists in our nation, and a lot of our general public is gullible enough to believe that we cannot affect the environment, as those dang bleeding heart tree huggers claim we do.”

    Pope: “Don Boehner, you’re wrong!”

    Boehner (sobbing): “That’s it! I quit!”

    Like the pounding of the heart, heard through the floorboards, in Poe’s Tell Tale Heart; we can try and divert attention, but we’ll all eventually have to accept reality, for the problem won’t just go away!
