Wasn’t it Jefferson who said that “information is the currency of democracy” and that, given a choice between government and a free press, he’ll take the latter? Secrecy—keeping the people and Congress in the dark—is the cancer eating at the vitals of democracy.


It is becoming clearer by the day that those infesting the District of Criminals do not take kindly to having their dirty laundry aired. I like the term coined by this article: "Wikimania".

The recent TSA action against a pilot who showed how inept the TSA is provides yet another glimpse of the future of our "free society" for those who blow the whistle on incompetence.

Hmm, I don't know exactly what the TSA has to do with the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. Can you clarify that for us please?

But as far as Wikileaks and the First Amendment to the United States Constitution goes, it's inapplicable. Julian Assange is not an American Citizen, Wikileaks is not an American website. The first amendment does not apply.
