We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
"The very government that can't do anything right in terms of improving things that it claims to fix is eminently trusted to get it right on the Internet. And I just want to be around when these people have to get licenses for their websites.
Do you know what happens when you get a license to own a radio or TV station? You have to prove to the government every three years, five, I don't know what it is now, maybe it's 10, but you have to prove that you are operating responsibly. You have to prove that you are adequately serving the community. Blah, blah, blah. The point is your freedom to operate your website is going to be dependent on the government approving what you do.
Do you want somebody like Obama and his Regime in charge of that? "
How long before many Catholic websites are banned for not being sufficiently pro-gay marriage?
Or Maggie's Farm for not being sufficiently anti-meat and butter?
It's not a major stretch. I look at us and pre-Hitler Germany. He was elected, after all.
Net censorship is more likely than global warming.
