This is really pathetic

Switch to digital TV may leave many in the dark

I’m warning you, if you have sympathy that some technologically-challenged people are no longer going to be able to watch “Oprah” or “The Young and the Restless” or “The Price is Right” over their damn rabbit ears…just click the back button now.

“That so many viewers around the country risk losing something as basic as a free television signal is a function, at least in part, of the government’s failure to anticipate that those most affected would be among the nation’s most frail and vulnerable.”

Do we as a society care more about “basic rights” like being able to watch pop culture crap for free than about rights actually enumerated in the Bill of Rights?  We’re already seeing an assualt on Rush Limbaugh’s freedom of speech [and by extension, the free expression of all Conservatives].  I can only imagine how badly our Second Amendment rights will be degraded during the course of the Obama administration.  Our very safety and sovereignty is at risk on the Southern border and we are changing courses against Islamic terrorism as well.  But heaven forbid that these old fogies should have to take responsibility for themselves to ensure that they remain entertained.

Google ‘censoring’ anti-Obama bloggers?

Google ‘censoring’ anti-Obama bloggers?

“Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs claims the search engine giant has banned her groundbreaking articles about Obama-a technique many people refer to as ‘sandboxing.'”

 

Hmm…Google, getting a head start on the Fairness Doctrine?  Look for more suppression of free speech as the Obama administration gets rolling–this guy can’t take criticism and the MSM (including Google, apparently) is going to continue to help him out.

Washington State attempting to stifle free speech

Posted by Liberty on November 12, 2008

The Washington State Public Disclosure Commission met today to discuss whether or not e-mail and internet blogs can constitute “lobbying” and therefore may be subject to PDC regulations.  See the PDC’s info here.  If you have an opinion about this, don’t forget to e-mail Lori Anderson [PDC Communications & Training Officer] at landerson@pdc.wa.gov or call her at 360-664-2737.  The State of Washington needs to know how other bloggers feel about their free speech potentially being subject to PDC regulation.  Freedom of Speech is a God-given right and should not be infringed upon by government bureaucrats!

Check out Liberty Live [Official Blog of Evergreen Freedom Foundation] for more info & opinion on this topic.

Could this happen in America?

Blogger jailed for 20 years over poem that mocked Burmese dictator

If Democrats succeed in bringing back the Fairness Doctrine, what other free speech will be regulated and limited?
