    It's not just the budget that's a problem:

    Any threat to free speech is the biggest threat to our country.

    Obama's friends see censorship as the only way to control the masses. It's coming...

    It's the only way they could bankrupt us ... if we keep all sides of the argument going they know they have no power, once they silence all but their own side they will have absolute power. ;)

    It's precisely why I support freedom of speech in all it's forms, even if I disagree with what someone says I would never agree to taking that freedom away from them, without more views, more angles, then we would have an autocracy. I don't like the idea of such, we all have flaws, every view has some flaws, every path has flaws, every bill, etc. so long as we can see these flaws though we can correct them when they start hurting us.

    Obama and Robert Bauer, Anita Dunn's husband, Bauer who intimidated media people not to run campaign ads that tied Obama to Bill Ayers, Bauer who threatened the media stating the FCC would take their liscence if they ran the ads.

    Obama's net neutrality is word speak for cencorship of the internet

    Be thankful that there are still a large number of "rogue" programmers who will defend freedom of speech to the death ... like me. ;) The reason they can't get such things past is right now there are still too many people enjoying this freedom, so they know that pushing this issue too hard will result in a revolt that they could not recover from ... our government would be completely over thrown. Us net "geeks" would attack their computer systems while others would actually fight. This is one reason I am also very glad our government is too stupid to switch to Linux or Unix. :lol: As long as they have MS servers ... they're easy targets.
