What was the point of SOPA? Why write stupid and draconian laws when you know you're planning to ignore whatever laws there are? They should just pass a law saying the US government never spies on anybody, the internet is free from surveillance, and statements to the contrary are punishable by extraordinary rendition.

This is always the best way to get decision-makers to pay attention: put a dollar sign on it. Large-scale economic costs? Vague and largely about trends. Looking at my bank accounts? Heads must roll!
