SOPA & PIPA will punish the innocent and do nothing to stop piracy. Write or phone your senator and congressman today! Go to wikipedia to easily lookup contact info for your legislators.

Matt Taibbi: Nobody hates them for being successful. And not that this needs repeating, but nobody even minds that they are rich. What makes people furious is that they have stopped being citizens. Most of us 99-percenters couldn’t even let our dogs leave a dump on the sidewalk without feeling ashamed before our neighbors. It’s called having a conscience: even though there are plenty of things most of us could get away with doing, we just don’...

Meeting someone new this time of year, I am not afraid to wish them a Merry Christmas. I choose not to.

Growing up as part of the religious majority in this country, I've never known first hand what it feels like to be ostracized or left out. So when people who don't celebrate Christmas tell me it makes them feel left out and marginalized, I believe them.

I'd much rather avoid making someone I don't know feel left out than I am worried about their potential lack of Christmas merriment. That's why I wish people I don't know "Happy Holidays."

I'm tired of hearing people say "Oh, you can't wish anyone merry christmas anymore." It's a bunch of bullshit. This sentiment is quite similar to the negative reactions that many people have about Political Correctness. Say whatever you want, but remember that not everyone is exactly like you. If you care about anything or anyone other than yourself remember that differences between people should perhaps cause you to think before speaking.

I find this to be a very classy move. Google & Samsung decide to delay a Ice Cream Sandwich due to Jobs' death. I respect both companies a good bit more today.

Wow!
PARK RIDGE, Ill. (AP) — The Big Ten has taken Joe Paterno's name off the Big Ten's football championship trophy. League commissioner Jim Delany said Monday that it is "inappropriate" to keep Paterno's name on the trophy that will be awarded Dec. 3 after the first Big Ten title game.
