    Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!

    We should put up a petition on Petition.com aimed at the FCC, Time-Warner, Comcast, etc. and get everyone who visits all of Alex’s websites to go and sign it based on a united agreement to boycott all internet access companies who censor out ANY alternative news sites as well as boycott all Internet sites that also play such games like Google and Yahoo. We can inform them that millions of people will NOT shop through them or respond to any type of advertising until they stop such behavior and that we will actually quit our access companies if they insist on Internet 2. Plus we could send out a request to all of our email lists to sign the petition as well warning of what we will do if they persist. I know many people who do not agree with all of the “conspiracy” theories that others believe, but they will come out and defend free speech and demand that censorship stop immediately. I bet we could easily and quickly get over 1,000,000 signatures! Other alternative news sites would feature this approach too I believe.

    Why we should pay to access an Internet that is only a glorified shopping system that offers some government services? I, for one, will be off the Internet completely at that point.

    Any other ideas for fighting this censorship? We can’t expect just one or two men to do it all themselves….

    btw, anything from Alex Jones should automatically go to the conspiracy theory forum
