It's a sad death of an era...

Free speech, actually. You might want to remember this, as it won't last much longer... especially here in Canada.

Cherry was a classic case. (he's a mouthy hockey coach on th CBC) One mention of a player being french and useless and BAM.. a 5 second delay slapped on him so they could STOP any of that nonsense from ever getting out again.

It was offensive, eh? Can't let THAT happen.

Tamil.com got pulled off the nets... they were terrorists. (along with ALMOST any dissenting opinion. from the ruling parties PC platform)

Pulled. Gone. So were gay ebullition boards.... and a few other things. child-porn, gambling, trading information, spam.... STILL proliferate.

libel laws got applied to blogs... including senators who forged their resumes and had THAT news promptly pulled off the air, blogs and public consumption.

Hate-literature restrictions got applied to free thought. (ask any neo-Nazi. they were first. But ask a Palestinian too, because they weren't last.)

Take-down notices were enforced without notice. DRM. Youtube.

first complaint extermination, no appeal, facebook.

libel laws in the (private) living room, ala taped conversations (BC case)

trade-mark laws being used to shut down parody cases. (can-west's latest effort to squash parody.)

Air farce going off the air... their last show was friday. (dec 19th /08 ), another sad day for free speech, comedy and political satire.

Fair comment , free speech, and an open society?

Not for long. Not as long as their's money to be made in hate.

the anatomy of human destructiveness (Eric Fromm) come to mind.. Those not getting their satisfactions from the higher levels of creativity turn instead to the drama of destruction.

Idle hands being the devils play-ground, etc...

Onna practical political level, hate is simple enough for anyone to do, and you can make people think it's work, too.

Michael Connell died in a plane crash last night. He was a key witness in the Ohio election fraud case that reporting on. More importantly, however, he had information that he was ready to share.

a few people here may find this interesting.

I'm assuming that a lot of people here already know about it. Seeing the types of comments and such.
You may find the movie very inspiring... if thats the right word to use

also noteworthy... funding is being denied on a cultural-cleansing basis.
movie makers get censored actively by only funding propaganda.

mercury, sodium floride, arsnenic.. monosodium gultimate, (current IQ =0.)
self-serving bullshit, cemsorship, repression of free speech, (in, de, re, con, un, sub - info)
elimination (accidental or otherwise) of opposition, (sound familiar, harper?), (first we kill the cartoonists)

so what's it like to be a disloyal, child-molesting, drug-dealing terrorist?
