The article is a great piece of fiction.
I got that glossed over the eyes look when reading about how the president is a figurehead (true) but others (more menacing) run the government. Also enjoyed the comment about the FBI and DHS.
I'm fairly pissed about the bailout and I have guns so I guess my internet will be censored. I'll probably be even more pis*ed about that than the bailout, but no one asked me for my opinion.
On a very positive note, I saw another more interesting article on the site about Obama's communist parentage. Perhaps we can have another thread started....

as I type this, i'm sitting next to a web server, that I built, hosting 3 websites, and is operating as a fileserver for a few as well...
they can delete the domain names pointing users to my computer, but they can't delete the websites unless they hack or destroy my computer.
If any of the Domain names gets nixed, the files are still available... I would just have to inform the viewers to access via the IP address and they would view the site like any other.

Free speech is of course important. But what can you do except to try and run for election in order to create better laws. This is democracy after all. In my country they are starting to watch what is going on in the internet, which is good to a certain point. But it would not be nice not to be able to write what I think.
