Congress: We are insane to let these people even assemble
The attempts to take over the net, regardless of what reasons they give are indicative of a government that has removed itself so far from the people it claims to represent that I believe we are insane to even let these people assemble; its too much like watching an invading army that is fully determined to destroy us at any cost.
Just today, another of those staged “committee hearings” was taking place in the efforts to revive the federal governments intention to launch a full frontal attack on the first amendment and free speech. Of course no one of any consequence appeared as a witness opposing this intent to take over the net, but we did have the usual line-up of the Permanent Political Class sitting front and center ready to deliver what could be nothing less than their own personal version of the dooms-day scenario they envision for us if we do not comply with their desire to throttle the net for political purposes.
Among these political hacks who are cheering on the assault on freedom of speech was Diane Feinstein, David Rockefeller, Susan Collins and of course our all-time despised political puppet, good ol’ Joe Lieberman. These characters were accompanied by Tom Ridge, Janet Napolitano and whomever else Lieberman could drag in to this stage show, willing to do their part in attempting to terrify the nation into viewing an open and free internet as not only a threat to national security, but to economic security as well.
Personally, considering the massive wreckage that is our economy I cannot think what could possibly happen on the net that could conceivably make one iota of difference. The fact is, it can’t and it doesn’t.
