The current administration is poised to move on the internet. It wants to level the playing field it says. It wants to make things fair for newspapers and outlets. They seek to take over yet again another portion of the economy that is failing, due in great part to that industries refusal to adhere to it’s own rules of objectivity.
These people think that it is their right and privilege to control every facet of life in America. After all they went to Harvard. They were elected by a mandate from the “people”. People aren’t smart enough to run their own lives and deep, deep down they want a “mommy” to take care of them. Just ask them. “Obama’s gonna pay my mortgage,” “its OUR turn,” and the like are refrains heard throughout the campaign and into the present.
In January of the year 49 (Anno Domino) AD Julius Caesar crossed a small river in northern Italy called the Rubicon. He and his rag tag army sought to unseat the Senate and put Caesar on the throne as emperor for life. They claimed a mandate from the people, but as usual the politician promised everything that anyone wanted and delivered only what HE was willing to give. Caesar plunged Rome into civil war and when it was over “the people” had less liberty, less freedom and less republic.
We stand on the cusp of an intellectual Rubicon. The government is poised to move on the internet. They seek to strip “the people” of their ability to exchange information freely. They seek to control that information for their own gains. They seek to ensure that criticism to them and their agenda is sought out and silenced once and for all.
They will reap the whirlwind, I hope. I hope they citizens of this country understand that he who is willing to surrender a little liberty to assure a little safety deserve neither safety nor liberty (paraphrased from sage Franklin). I hope that the people in this country will finally wake up, and smell the coffee burning. The government never, ever, ever has had enough the people’s liberty once it has had a taste, it is insatiable.
I hope that the sleeping giant that awoke on Dec 7th 1941 is still there, waiting for another assault on our freedom and liberty. I hope people will finally understand that those in charge are not looking out for their best interest, they are only looking out for their own opportunities and that of their friends and party members. They are willing to lie, cheat and steal, and that’s just the things that have come to light thus far, no telling what other things they’ve done or are willing to do, that they are desperate to cover up. Hence the new FEC focus on the internet.
Transparency, these people are about as transparent as lead. Hopefully we the people are not as dense as that. Caesar plunged Rome into a tragic and deadly civil war. Team Obama and his lackeys in the government and the media stand breathlessly on the edge of the cliff, ready to jump into the arms of Ares. Intellectual war will not stay on the purely academic plain. In Chicago that’s not how they “roll” as it were. Politics is personal and literal. Brother against brother. Neighbor against neighbor. This is where we are headed I’m afraid.
As for the FEC and “the one.” Here I am. Or at work, or visiting the grandchildren, or at a quilt store. I’m sure with your vast network of spies and intelligence workers you’ll be able to ferret out the little American-Irish grandmother. So dangerous to the status quo, such a bad example to others.
Welcome, back my friends to the show that never ends, we’re so glad you could attend. Come inside, come inside.
