The frightening part of all this is the the tools to even THINK about implementation of this outrage EXIST
In a surprise move late Friday, a key Democrat on the Federal
Election Commission called for burdensome new rules on Internet-based
campaigning, prompting the Republican chairman to warn that Democrats
want to regulate online political sites and even news media like the Drudge Report.
Democratic FEC Vice Chair Ann M. Ravel announced plans to begin the
process to win regulations on Internet-based campaigns and videos,
currently free from most of the FEC’s rules. “A reexamination of the
commission’s approach to the internet and other emerging technologies is
long over due,” she said.
The power play followed a deadlocked 3-3 vote on whether an Ohio
anti-President Obama Internet campaign featuring two videos violated FEC
rules when it did not report its finances or offer a disclosure on the
ads. The ads were placed for free on YouTube and were not paid
So if I make a snarky video and put it RIGHT HERE on this blog, and I
can dish out a blog, BTW from MY VERY OWN SERVER here in TWC land,
which I own, in MY HOUSE .. the FEC can then claim I have violated
Be VEWWWY VEWWWY careful boychicks, and maidelas.
Any person here can say something, create something and have it go
VIRAL. It goes viral because folks LIKE it for some indescribable
combination of reasons. So if I put a sign on my kitty which says
‘McCain is a jerk’ or ‘Cruz makes my hair stand on end’ will you turn a
blind eye when you suddenly notice ‘Monica’s boyfriend’s wife is a
moron’, or ‘Elizabeth Warren secretly likes the name redskins’ and it
goes viral on youtube?

You don’t own me
Don’t try to change me in any way
You don’t own me
Don’t tie me down ‘cause I’d never stay
I don’t tell you what to say
I don’t tell you what to do
So just let me be myself
That’s all I ask of you
If this is constitutional, IT IS OVER HERE.
We should notice the person who actually brought this up, AND their
party because while this idiot should be collecting stray dogs in
Elizabeth NJ, if others of a SINGLE PARTY further such an idea, THEY ARE
A DANGER TO THE REPUBLIC.
No matter WHICH PARTY.
