Blogging to be made ILLEGAL!

By adelacuesta ·
This is not a technical question but it involves all if not most of us.<br>

I stumped on this article.<br>
<a href = "http://www.NewsTarget.com/022308.html">Senate Bill 1959 to Criminalize Thoughts, Blogs, Books and Free Speech Across America</a> <p>

So much for the free speech in America. "The land of the free...."</p>

ok,

by Jaqui In reply to Blogging to be made ILLEG ...

now go find the actual text of the bill so we can see if that ONE interpretation of it is accurate.
[ probably is, since 9-11 it has become the Fascist States of America in the US Government's war on human rights against the American people. ]

Always an excellent suggestion

by CharlieSpencer In reply to ok,

And you can read it for yourselves here:

http://thomas.loc.gov/home/gpoxmlc110/h1955_rfs.xml

I interpret the first part of it as authorizing the creation of a commission to study the problem for 18 months. That's a long way from banning blogging (or any other form of speech), assuming that's what the commission eventually recommends and assuming those recommendations are adopted.

The next portion allows HomeSec to create a university-based organization to assist HomeSec to develop procedures to fight "radicalization".

899E is a bit worrisome. It authorizes the study and -possible- implementation of the anti-terror methods used by other countries. It does include the phrase "To the extent the methodologies are permissible under the Constitution..." I'd be worried with the current administration and their apparent disregard for the Constitution, but by the time this passes and the studies are finished, someone else will be occupying the Oval Office.

899F - "The Department of Homeland Security?s efforts ... shall not violate the constitutional rights, civil rights, or civil liberties of United States citizens ..."

Take that for whatever you personally feel it's worth. I myself wouldn't mind seeing most blogging disappear, especially one-sided unbalanced blogs like the one that started this discussion.

by Jaqui In reply to Always an excellent sugge ...

Someone else

"I'd be worried with the current administration and their apparent disregard for the Constitution, but by the time this passes and the studies are finished, someone else will be occupying the Oval Office."

Assuming that this "someone else" isn't in the same pocket as the current administration.

HOLY MONKEYS

by israck In reply to Blogging to be made ILLEG ...

we NEED Max back, i'm too pissed to put together a coherent response to this. but after reading the bill, it sounds like anyone who happens to rant on the gov. could be in serious trouble. now i'm not a fervent anti-bushite like most, and i'm sure this will get the conspiracy nuts juices flowing, but it appears that if "they" try to make any big changes to the way our gov. works, they can then conveniently put down any organized oppostion to said changes. doesn't this verge on (read...bullseye) being unconstitutional?

Dept. of Homeland Security has already

by The Scummy One In reply to HOLY MONKEYS

started creating lists of people and labeled them as terrorists from what I have read elsewhere. These lists include anyone who disagrees with what the govt. does, and posts it on the Internet.
I guess I must be part of that list, and since I have a gun, I am also probably a dangerous terrorist as well...

Not you!

by CharlieSpencer In reply to Dept. of Homeland Securit ...

I don't think you're a dangerous terrorist. I think you're an idiot, but I'd feel that way whether you had a gun or not. :-)

Yup Me!!!

by w2ktechman In reply to Not you!

I am probably on the top 1000000 list of most dangerous people in America. And if I say this on the Internet G. BUSH S*CKS!!! oops, now I am probably at the top 999999 list.

Now, how to get to be #1....

lame, really lame.

by Jaqui In reply to Yup Me!!!

to make the top 100 you have to get really nasty and start posting pictures of bush and bin-laden having sex, or details on bilding a nuke, and call it the Facist States of America.

edit to add:

oooohhh see here: # 5 of the Top 100

Uh, Jaqui,

by CharlieSpencer In reply to lame, really lame.

you do know that the TR Top 100 is not the same as HomeSec's list of Top One Million Dangerous People in the U.S., don't you?

Oh, wait, maybe it is. That's why Max isn't here anymore; the Feds finally caught up with him.
