Are everyone, including you, commenting on Thomas' decision and you don't even know that he's one of the few Americans on the Bruins?Tim Thomas is not a right-winger like Marine Corps Pat says. He plays goalkeeper. I agree with the guy above that said the hockey player should have swallowed his pride or whatever he lives by and joined his team at the White House. It was disrespect for the President of the United States and there was no politics involved. Just a tribute to the national champion. Anybody check whether Thomas is a Canadian and not an American after all?

Tim is RIGHT!!! Say no to Obama's attempt to shut down free speech on the Internet.
Opponents have argued that the treaty will restrict fundamental civil and digital rights, including freedom of expression and communication privacy.
"The bulk of the WTO's 153 members" have raised concerns that the treaty could distort trade and goes beyond the existing Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights.
Opponents also criticize ACTA's removal of "legal safeguards that protect Internet Service Providers from liability for the actions of their subscribers" in effect giving ISPs no option but to comply with privacy invasions.
According to an analysis by the Free Software Foundation, ACTA would require that existing ISPs no longer host free software that can access copyrighted media, and DRM-protected media would not be legally playable with free or open source software.

What's all this about the ACTA, Bottlecap, a bunch of bull, that's all. Get down to brass tacks.
Tim Thomas made a stupid mistake. In trying to make a political statement, he picked the wrong time and place. Not joining his teammates in their hour of glory, he might have shaken up his relationship with the guys who play in front of him. He's a farce and a fraud in my opinion. Just cause you don't like American politics in general, don't take it out on the gracious invitation of the President.

We see where you super-imposed Obama's face over yours. Admit it, Snow, you're a closet fan of our President who is afraid to come out.
