"He initially tried to buy the home but was blocked by the government, who said he didn’t display good enough character to make the purchase...."

Fuck me. The gov't there has the power to approve or disallow a real estate deal? Thought we were screwed here, but there is a whole bargain basement of nanny state bullshit down there.

Probably because he's not a citizen. Still sounds screwed up.

Wondering why the gov't can seize cars of people who are accused (before due process) and freeze assets.

As if it's not bad enough for each individual person to rip off movies and music and pay per views, this guy took all the money the creators would have made and BOUGHT A FUCKING GIRAFFE with it. And then you look at all the other scams he has run and I don't see how anyone would want to defend this cunt.

Latest news.. Filesonic has disabled all sharing functionalities
FileSonic shutters: Another file-sharing site bites the dust | ZDNet

Quote:
Summary: Only days after the $$$$$$$$$$ website was taken offline by U.S. authorities, similar businesses are scrambling to protect themselves before any action is taken against them.

FileSonic, one of the most popular file-sharing websites on the Web, has announced that it is has disabled “all sharing functionality”, and that its service can “only be used to upload and retrieve files you have uploaded personally”.

The company’s Facebook page has also disappeared. According to users on Reddit, it is believed that many accounts and files were deleted today.

It is thought that this measure has been put in place in response to the wider crackdown on file-sharing sites by U.S. authorities.

Since the Second World War, the US has:
1. Attempted to overthrow more than 50 governments, most of them democratically elected.

2. Attempted to suppress a populist or national movement in 20 countries.

3. Grossly interfered in democratic elections in at least 30 countries.

4. Dropped bombs on the people of more than 30 countries.

5. Attempted to assassinate more than 50 foreign leaders.

In total, the United States has carried out one or more of these actions in 69 countries.

Harper and his cronies are their best friends and needs to be stoped now!
