I was aware Oracle and Google were in a battle over some coding thing, but never bothered to look into the details. Assuming your simplified summary is accurate, I'd agree Oracle is whining over something which never should have reached an actual courtroom. Google should make sure then are reimbursed for their legal expenditures.

Supreme Court Rules in Google's Favor in Oracle Copyright Case Apr 7, 2021, 11:13

The technical aspects of this case have been misconstrued because it's hard for the public to understand it. Google did not 'steal code'. All they did was use standard API labels from Java in order to maintain a standard, as I understand it.

This is as if Google used the table of contents from Oracle's 'book', but the rest of Google's 'book' was a new work. The reason you do this is for compatibility. So everyone who reads the new 'book' understands how to compare each chapter in the two books. Yeah, okay, oversimplification, but that's it in a nutshell. All Google used was Java's framework for API calls, not the actual code. The Supreme Court did the right thing from a technical standpoint. I can't speak to the legal consequences for other works. I'll leave that to copyright lawyers.

300 gpu's, that's the equivalent of the Border Patrol in my area capturing 300 lbs of wacky tobacky. Not even a drop in the import bucket.

The United States is way beyond that. It's been pointed out before that US citizens have basically no political influence compared to corporations. Those advocates and activists were never even in the game. Citizens, whether liberal or conservative, don't effect change through low-visibility meetings with legislators, but through noisy, high-visibility stunts like social media shitstorms and riots.
