The death of the internet is at hand

Postby KeKe » October 5th, 2010, 10:38 am

At least to us US citizens who will, if this bill is passed, have our freedom of speech thrown out the window, more than it already has been, and become like China and Iran with the government deciding just what websites are allowed.

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=s111-3804

This bill, should it be used in conjunction with how it is meant and not abused, would be okay in my mind but I don't know the last time the government did something and followed the rules by which it sets. Frankly I am disgusted at this and how far from the Constitution of the United States of America set forth by our forefathers we are living today. Our current government has shit on that document time and time again.

Now our Judiciary branch should find this unconstitutional and it won't pass but who knows these days.

Anyway, I thought I would share the news with you, oh, and from what I have read of that bill, this could mean that AC is blacklisted from the US internet, not saying it will be but it could be.

It is impossible to enlighten a close minded person such as yourself, and it would be a waste of time to try. You are just about the same as every other ignorant fool living in the US. If you ever wish me to take you seriously, or that you actually have an above average intelligence for someone in the US, the average is actually quite low, then do as I asked and attempt a post that isn't aimed at starting an argument.

I believe you are confused. I didn't ask for excuses. I asked (in a rather smart-ass way i will admit) for you to explain your opinion to me. Don't share very serious opinions (especially political opinions)without having an argument prepared for dissenters.

if it isn't blatantly obvious to you, I suppose you just won't understand. I don't waste time talking to those who don't want to understand things, or don't try

More excuses to avoid a painfully simple question.

From what I've read of it, and looking at the supreme court's past decisions on 1st amendment rights, there's no way in hell it'll pass.

and if congress knows that it has very little chance of passing the judiciary branch, they're not exactly gonna put a lot of effort into getting it passed.

the thing is, politicians are human. humans are imperfect, therefore any style of democratic government is imperfect. i believe ours is very far from perfect. i really believe that we should be like sweden. or have a congress that is elected like the Bundestag.
we should also get rid of the electoral college.

imperfect is one thing if they follow the laws set out by our constitution.

they have changed all of the laws they could in order to give them more power, patriot act? among other things all in the name of "security" which is complete BS
