As far as free speech, it is just not happening in mainstream media. Look at all the locks on information regarding Fukushima. Information is just
beginning to seep out. What about our own problem at home with
the Nebraska nuclear plants? It was briefly reported in a small local paper.
Guess what? It disappeared.
What about that article about the Philly fellow who said the escalation in infant deaths there may be related to Fukushima. You know what? It
Bush let that genie out of the bottle. The Bush machine created a program to filter all internet traffic looking for key words. These weren't
programs just for foreigners - but primarily to spy on you and me. It is hard to turn off
the spigot. Do you want all these people checking on us to join the ranks of the unemployed? Along with the
groppers at the airport?
Frankly, I could share a site that allows you to view things worldwide. I started using it when the Bush Admin
squeezed all the real news out of the media, especially regarding Iraq. But I am actually afraid to post it. As I rely on it, and am terrified it will
disappear, and I will be sitting in the electronic dark. All I can say is that information on sites is disappearing right and left. It is really great
to have an overview that presents all sides.
I think the more data one has, hopefully a truer picture will emerge, and you will have a more meaningful opinion. As far as the US government, I can
easily picture warehouses full of computer geeks targeting blogs, this and other forums. Primarily a huge waste of time.
If knowledge is power, the information appears to be on the way of becoming strip-mined. My advice. Just leave it all out there, with some possibly
dangerous weirdos out there or not. Apparently FBI tracked people who were exercising their free speech, and were very disappointed that they
couldn't prosecute anyone. So they monitored
people like you and me, who are just mainly trying to figure things out for themselves. The really dangerous people encrypt everything anyways, and
have their own secret webpages within webpages. They are far more
sophisticated that we are. BTW, when I linked to the "no longer working" links I posted, WATCH OUT. My
computer protection program had to repel two attacks. Not kidding.
