    I do not know what kind of life you have lived, maybe raised in the woods by wild animals or something? But here in the civilized world, we have laws.

    We elect officials to pass laws that EVERYONE abides by. No single person is granted exclusion from these laws, nor do they get to pick and choose which ones they want to follow.

    I am going to guess that you have never had a run in with law enforcement, never been thrown in jail, never been arrested. If you keep thinking that laws do not apply to you, one day you will be in for a rude awakening.

    TexasHiker dude, no you do not know me so chill.

    I'm all too aware of "how the world works" and what's in it for me if I resist it too fiercely, believe me. But knowing it doesn't mean I have to agree with it, does it? That's my whole point. You seem to be in some sort of righteous indignation and simulated disbelief that anyone could ever even do as little as question the paradigm of law that you seem to subscribe to, as if no other idea exists and as if no other way is possible.

    I'm tempted to say "snap out of it", but why bother.. you wont get it (at least not without an extensive discussion for which this isn't the time and place).

    Awesome template. Should definitely fit if anyone ever blogs about a product or whatever.

    It is not really a matter of whether or not the laws apply to someone outside of the USA. It is a matter of enforcement. Unfortunately, the FTC has no authority to prosecute someone in another country.

    That may change some day when the One World Order controls the planet.

    This just means that we have to be a little more careful. I don't see the FTC cracking down on bloggers to much. But who knows.
