Get together with a million other geeks to throw money at this problem
This is the problem with allowing money to act as a form of 'free speech'. It's an arms race with more and more money trying to buy the 'right' laws and the people (corporations) that financially benefit from those laws will always have more money to buy more laws.

Japanese Use Wild Monkeys To Track Radiation

I know when I eat nothing but high fructose corn syrup I don't feel so hot.
