good post and good information!!! S+F!
But we are still technically free... We have the freedom to come and go as we please, watch whatever we want, browse anything on the internet, eat whatever we choose, work where we want, live where we want, freedom to have as many kids as we want, freedom to back talk our government leaders, freedom to protest, bear arms, vote (even though it doesn't count for anything really), freedom of religion, we are not forced to join the military (lately), we have the freedom to choose our education, freedom to say what we want and how we feel, and soooo many other things that if I list it will be way to long LOL.
I get what you are getting at but if you think about it most of those "reasons" are pretty justified seeing the world we are living in right now.

Why bother reading the rest of the list when the lies begin in number three?
The article quoted and linked in the OP claims Philadelphia is requiring "bloggers" to file for a $300 business license. This is neither true nor even CLOSE to true. The ACTUAL ruling states that any blog which earns revenue, places ads on the site as a means of revenue (not the type required by the service provider) or sells goods is a business, and must have a business license.
Why isn't this logical? If someone is using a website to make profit, it is a business venture. All business ventures require a business license. The bloggers are free to express whatever they wish, so long as they aren't using that expression to make money and simultaneously evade business taxes/licenses.

Here is my take on it done by some one else though.
It is true that we still have much freedom, but try and walk down a city street after say around 11:00 PM and see if you do not get stopped. We live in a town of 10000 and you can not walk the streets at night.
