who are charged with enforcing the laws in china, then they might have a greater appreciation for the rampant amount of piracy taking place in china, far worse than any other country in the world. recently, the ceo of microsoft came and talked to me and a few others, and said that comparing china to russia, which has a bad reputation itself, they believe that the rate -- china is much more populous -- the rate of internet that based upon the number of computers in china is six times as great in china as in russia. worldwide, the piracy that is taking place is costing up to 60,000 american jobs. this from a company that has only 80,000 jobs total in the u.s. if they could increase by 50% that one company goes employment by handling this problem -- and we will never completely handle it -- getting a better handle on it will create a lot of jobs. >> finally, net neutrality. energy and commerce committee is holding hearings on the issue of net neutrality. fcc is active on this. what is your view of the government's role in net neutrality? >> i think the judiciary committee has a very

, indonesia, haiti, it is not china's aircraft carriers that race to the rescue with massive amounts of aid and manpower. it is the united states military. it is critical that we do what we can to care for the needs of our active duty and retired service members and their families. surely, that is the least our country can do for those who risk their lives every day defending our freedom. it cannot be temporary. that is why all my various efforts have been pulled together through the formation of the gary sinise foundation. our motto, serving honor and need, has as its mission statement "to serve our nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need." we do that by creating unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities. it is my hope that by beginning this fund-raising and program- generating entity, we will be able to do more to honor the men and women who serve by meeting their needs. i did not serve, but i have never been more rewarded than when i am with the military community and see the smiles a

number of situations where it wouldn't go through the mother. in china and japan, if the father is merely known, it would not go through the mother. there were countries at the time including english countries, if a female citizen gave birth to a child somewhere other than in their country, citizenship would not travel through that mother because of the laws of those particular countries. there are also stateless women. in all those situations, the citizenship would not go through the mother, and this statutory scheme does not provide for that. it provides risks for married fathers. a march who is married to an ayen -- alien, in those situations it would not allow the woman to transmit citizenship. so if the father was precluded as in the united states, they would preclude the child from doing that as well. there are numerous countries who have basically reinstituteded theule that if the father is known, citizenship would not transmit through the mother. those are in the middle east and africa. those are also detailed in the scholar's brief. >> how do you deal with the argument tha

around the world whether it is with china, russia, or any other country. the united states has interests in economic energy areas with countries, but the democracy interests should not be shortchanged. it is like a three-legged stool. democracy and human rights should not be the shortest leg of that stool. according to the washington post, president obama is planning to raise a number of human rights issues with china. secretary clinton delivered a speech yesterday, in which human rights was mentioned quite prominently in her speech. i hope this is a reflection that human rights will in fact be a prominent issue during the visit when president obama went to china in november 2009, he was criticized for not raising human rights issues during that trip, for allowing the chinese to orchestrate his visit as a press conference. secretary clinton in february 2009 when she was traveling in asia and on her way to china was quoted by saying we cannot let these human rights issues interfere. i hope it reflects a sustainable change where human rights are going to get an adjustment. look a
