Grain of salt warning...

It was pointed out to me that the source I linked to on my last post about the fairness doctrine contains mainly anonymous sources, point taken. Consider this your official warning to take "The Prowler" article and it's anonymous sources with a big fat grain of salt. However, here is a non-anonymous democratic source on the fairness doctrine:

More good news!

The dawning of the great American Utopia is upon us! There are just a few things we have to clear up first.

Like that pesky constitution, why does it have all those annoying amendment thingies. For example, this first amendment business. How are we going to implement change if people can just say or write whatever they want? Obama said it himself: "You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and expect to get things done."

Hey guys, let's bring back the fairness doctrine! This time though, let's make sure we include the internet:


The House Energy and Commerce Committee is also looking at how it can put in place policies that would allow it greater oversight of the Internet. "Internet radio is becoming a big deal, and we're seeing that some web sites are able to control traffic and information, while other sites that may be of interest or use to citizens get limited traffic because of the way the people search and look for information," says on committee staffer. "We're at very early stages on this, but the chairman has made it clear that oversight of the Internet is one of his top priorities."

Yeah, those evil neocons are so evil with their well organized and coherent blogs! Give the angry and incoherent a chance, too!

And don't even get me started on that dang 22nd amendment, I mean, change can't always happen overnight. It might take more than 8 years to implement true social justice! Just ask Hugo Chavez.

H. J. RES. 5

Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.

Thank you 111th Congress!

Good news!

That whole liberty thing was a little tiring wasn't it? I mean, freedom is great, but that whole personal responsibility deal really blows.

Hilarious - until you realise this is happening in your country.
