    Most of the Lame Stream Media are already in the Obama camp and he has people in hiz inner circle of Czars who want to take Conservative Radio stations away from owners and give them to Liberals.

    Quoting Mark Loyd Obama's Diversity Czar "It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press. This freedom is all too often an exaggeration. At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies.

    "[T]he purpose of free speech is warped to protect global corporations and block rules that would promote democratic governance."

    "In Venezuela, with Chavez, is really an incredible revolution - a democratic revolution. To begin to put in place things that are going to have an impact on the people of Venezuela.

    "The property owners and the folks who then controlled the media in Venezuela rebelled - worked, frankly, with folks here in the U.S. government - worked to oust him. But he came back with another revolution, and then Chavez began to take very seriously the media in his country.


    Welcome to what Obama called hope and change.
    damn my liberal employer. a bank, btw.

    The Obama admin isn't doing anything different than any other Admin. Blocking websites that govt employees can access while on the job on government computers is nothing new.

    Actually, I wish I had old emails, but I think most of the blocks being referenced occured prior to 2009.
    Forget "LWOP", until this shutdown ends I get to enjoy "WWOP": Work Without Pay

    The headline "TSA restates already existing policy" doesn't make as good a talking point.

    I caught a bit of Rush Limbaugh on the radio a little bit ago as I drove home. He was ranting about civil liberties, how TSA employees have all these rights against discrimination based on gender/ethnicity/etc, but not the right to view these websites. It was confusing to say the least, as I was not aware of any federally or constitutionally recognized right to fart around on the internet while on the taxpayers' dime. He talked about how Obama told college graduates in a speech that they should check out both sides, if you're a Limbaugh fan you should check out Huffington Post and vice-versa, "unless you work for the federal government, then you're not allowed."

    Is Rush under the impression that this policy applies to the home computers of TSA employees or something!?

    I heard it too. He's very lucky that most of his audience listens to him like the gospel and questions nothing. That's how he does. He makes it out like you can't visit drudge or his website if you work for the tsa (he specifically mentioned drudge and rushlimbaugh.com when mentioning sites you can't visit) and then when someone is correcting him on that, he goes on to lie about a different topic.

    When did Bush embrace Chavez and have a czar talking about taking radio stations from Conservatives? Answer never.

    You people need to get over the whole blame it on Bush or Bush did thing and respond to the Anti-American Obama's deeds and plans.

    Obama will next be banning and burning books.

    Dude an employer not allowing his/her employees to access certain websites is nothing new. Calm down the President isn't going to be banning or burning books.

    How in the world do you go from blocking internet sites on government computers used by government employees that don't have a business related purpose to banning and burning books?

    So it's now anti-America for an employer to decide what sites that employees can access on company time while getting paid?

    This is nothing more than hyper-partisan propaganda and hyperbole. Bush sought expansion of government just as Obama does now. The two act very similarly. Yet there are those who wish to close their eyes to the collusion of the Republocrats and believe that one side is worse than the other. The net result is that the bad side always stays in power with no check or control. The Bush-ites went through a long "blame it on Clinton" phase, yet that is forgotten once the tables turned. Typical partisan rhetoric. Bitch bitch bitch, but do nothing about it.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
