Some of you may not realize this, but once, there wasn't an Internet. Know what? Humanity survived anyway.

Right now the Internet is being kept from a portion of the people. There are certain web sites that you cannot access based on your zip code.
The supposed terrorists who will be blamed for the shut down won't be the terrorists you think. They'll be gov. operatives working clandestinely. The AyeRabs will get the blame
Understand, I'm not PROMISING its gonna happen, just speculating. Based on what I do know, I can tell you the US government is more powerful than most of us can even imagine. That oughtta scare everyone, b/c we are all just numbers to the powers that be.

It isn't uncommon to hear of people being arrested for having "terrorist" websites that simply speak out against the government. I think Sherman Austin and raisethefist.com comes to mind.

I believe in freedom of speech and the second amendment. I would encourage people of liberal and/or open minds, especially if they don't have kids to seriously consider taking advantage of your second amendment rights.
If we don't defend freedom of speech, there are any number of forces who will happily take it from us.
The internet is the ONLY place in America where one gets the truth that one doesn't get on TV or Radio.
Wouldn't it be refreshing if someone started blowing away the vampires on 'K' street in Washington?

It is one thing to go on about how you hate the government, but it is quite another thing entirely to encourage people to make Molotov cocktails.
