Priates that have been dead for over 200yrs didn't corner the market on rape, robbery, plundering, and murder, if they did, I can think of a few 1st world countries who can add copy right infrigment to their list of evil doings
Exactly! Have any of you ever even read history books? More than half of the pirates were privateers hired with letters of marque from various nations. murdering, sinking and taking of other nations vessels and goods.... you better take down every national flag you have.. All guilty. The uptight suits on here can fly their yacht club burgees.. i'm sure none of the members or members buisness interests would be involved in anything illegal or immoral.
