* The petitions.whitehouse.gov website continues to provide excellent insight into the mind of the American people. The petition to deport Justin Bieber easily hit the 100G threshold; it has now been signed by a quarter million people. The counterpetition, which was just recently started, has until March 1 to reach the 100G threshold. However, there is already a supplementary petition in favor of deporting Justin Bieber with nearly 30,000 signatures, which is doing much better than the previous counterpetition, with just over 2000 signatures, and the previous previous counterpetition (he doesn't deserve deportation because he is human and makes mistakes) with just over 7000 signatures.
But, in seriousness, the website provides an invaluable insight into democractic governance. This is what our campaigns and votes would be on if our society were fully democratic. And, actually this makes sense; if you go back and look at the sorts of things the ancient Athenians did -- well, they would have been debating the deportation of Justin Bieber, too.
