Now, I know you profess to love our country and the founding fathers (unless you are reminded that they believed in the separation of church and state), but I need to remind you that America is NOT what Fox News says it is. America is a melting pot, it always has been. We are a multi-cultural amalgamation of all kinds of people, and yet you still demonize everyone who is not a rich, white, heterosexual christian male or his submissive and obedient wife.
You hate liberals, moderates, hell, anyone who disagrees with Conservative dogma as espoused by Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. You hate em. Well, here are the facts, Jack. If you hate the Government then you are unqualified to manage it. If you hate gay people more than you love America than you should take your own advice and get the hell out. There are several countries that are openly hostile to gay people, but they are full of brown people and you don’t like them much either from what I understand. It looks like you are screwed, but that’s not what I am here to tell you.
again, this could be a glimpse into the future if things like acta are put into play…this is a machine that is hard to stop..started as US legislature..moved to global…if these all fail, we could see it on a state to state basis maybe? they are trying everything they can to stop the flow and freedom of information… social networking brought forth a process of change…a social engineered future where everyone shared every little detail about themselves, everyone giving up their info willingly where everyone could see it, the flow of information was too great for them to handle..now its out of control and they will stop at nothing to try and regain control, because without control they tremble in fear. become uncontrollable..untrollable ..substance. keep the internet free…or kill it in the process..
Internet giants Google and Facebook have removed some content an Indian court found offensive to local political and religious leaders. The court warned the companies that their services could be shut down over the case.
A New Delhi court Monday gave Facebook, Google, YouTube, Blogspot and the other sites two weeks to present further plans for policing their networks.
The officials say it is not a question of censorship, but of the necessity to operate within the laws of the country.
Google India did not say which sites were removed, but said it would go after anything that violated local law or its own standards.
“(Our) review team has looked at the content, and disabled this content from the local domains of (Google) search, YouTube and Blogger,” Google spokeswoman Paroma Roy Chowdhury said.
In January, the Indian government approved the prosecution of 21 web companies, including Google and Facebook, for publishing offensive content, and demanded the companies moderate what is published on their sites.
Back then, the companies said it was not possible to control everything their users upload to the Web.
Americans believe that the greatest source of tension in the U.S. is now the conflict between the rich and poor, taking the top spot from immigration issues, a new Pew survey is reporting.
Two-thirds of respondents surveyed last month think there are “very strong” or “strong” conflicts between the wealthy and the poor in the country. That’s an increase of 19 percentage points from those who answered the same question two years ago.
