Web Censorship Bill Sails Through Senate Committee | Epicenter | Wired.com

Web Censorship Bill Sails Through Senate Committee | Epicenter | Wired.com

The sponsors of this bill assure us that censorship is not it's intent. OK... May be.

But why should I believe it? These guys have completely burned through their credibility with the American people. We can safely assume lobbyists and staffers wrote the bill. We can safely assume the legislators have not read the bill. We can safely assume that it is packed with completely unrelated pork and power grabs, like the vending machine regulations included in the Obama health care bill.

Of course I may be wrong, but I wouldn't bet on it, and the legislators have given me no reason to be anything other than completely distrustful of them.

I'll read the entire bill myself and hopefully find I am wrong. Yeah right!

One Brave Hero

On Veterans Day, honoring Marine who lost limbs in Afghanistan, but not spirit

Today is a day when I walk around with men and women like this on my mind. I often think of our brave defenders and their sacrifices, but on Veterans day it's constant.

I think about my cushy life and the men and women that deal with the incredible challenges of military life and the horrors of battle. Those with wounds they'll carry around their entire lives are truly special.

To all my Veteran friends and family - thank you. My country, my family and I owe you our very lives. God bless you.
