I wish I could say I’m surprised, really I do. In this case I’d love to be wrong, but I’m not, dag-nab it.
The present administration is at it again. More interference with the 1st amendment, you know that pesky freedom of speech, freedom of association thingy again. First Uncle Sister want to protect those naive and dainty government workers from the mean, nasty, dangerous “Controversial Opinion” sites on the internet, other wise known as conservative news and blog sites. After all we can’t have government workers being exposed to opinions not given them by their masters. To those who find the use of that word offensive may I suggest a walk through the dictionary. The word does have more than one meaning, in this case it means their supervisors, administrators, bosses. So put the race card back in your pocket and get a life.
Second for people who were all about transparency before the elections these people have manage to out dirty deal every Republican since Taft. This last bit of skullduggery is not just arrogant but is honing right on into hubris and if you don’t know about hubris, I again suggest a stroll through Mr. Webster’s opus. The idiot “the one” has just appointed thinks that Great Britain’s health care system is just fine. I wonder if it was his parent who wasn’t going to get chemo or a hip replacement or his grandchild who’s illness was “untreatable” would he simply pat them on the head and say “the doctor says to take some aspirin, and wait for the end”. After the horror stories of people dying of dehydration and other treatable side effects of serious illness, I think I might take my chances with the wolves and bears out in the woods. At least the end would be quick and nobody would be telling me how sorry they were, but “you’re just too expensive to keep alive.”
Third and last, at least for now is this piece of nonsense. Business is now not responsible for it’s own security, the government under the auspices of NSA is. How long before government begins to make ” suggestions” on how to run the business. The next step is guarding our home and personal computers. Then it’s “suggesting” where we should or should not go when on the computer. What sites are appropriate, what games are permissible, what we can and can’t buy, sell or trade and don’t forget those pesky fees because when has the government ever given anything useable away for free? You always pay whether in taxes or in loss of liberty, always.
So, as I have said before, Janet here I am. Right here at my little Apple computer. Typing my “controversial opinion”, participating in free speech, freedom, liberty and the pursuit of my happiness. Come and get me, I’ll make sure to be a guest on every radio and TV talk show possible. I’d even go on NPR, but I’d take a bleach bath afterward. I’d make dang sure you and the rest of the brown shirts at the NSA are seen as the fascists you are. But thats just me, I’m sure there are people out there who can’t wait to hand over their lives to you. Just remember they will also probably want you to wipe their little tushy’s after they’ve gone potty too. Some will people never grow up.
