Hope, Change and...

...not so fast with that "free speech stuff", bubba...

Obama has nominated Cass Sunstein, who he knows from the University of Chicago, to be "regulatory czar."
And, what exactly would "Dear Leader" and his ol' college pal be "regulating"?

Well... that'd be your personal opinions and, well... "democracy"...
Apparently, Sunstein has proposed that web sites be required to link to opposing opinions. He has argued that the Internet is anti-democratic because users can choose to view only those opinions that they want to see, and has gone so far as to say:

"A system of limitless individual choices, with respect to communications, is not necessarily in the interest of citizenship and self-government," he wrote. "Democratic efforts to reduce the resulting problems ought not be rejected in freedom’s name."

WELCOME, YET AGAIN, READERS OF NOTED HUMANITARIAN CANADIAN CYNICYes, yes, CC... we all know how kind & compassionate you are. Say, while we're at it... let's revisit your pet theory about those dastardly, evil Jews.

And hey... we could always get a second opinion from your "fellow cynic"... the mysterious "sjwalter".

And, of course, there's CC's magnum opus...

Remember Canadian Cynic's message to Wanda Watkins, whose son Lane was killed in Afghanistan?
"With all due respect, Wanda, fuck you and your grief. It's not the job of the rest of Canada to continue to let its soldiers die just so you can sleep better at night."
Oh, Mr CC... you're so kooky.

This is just the 'Change' that our Comrades over at The Peoples Cube have been 'Hoping' for.

Welkome to the gulag of group think Amerika.

i've gotta say, i just don't get this dynamic.

maybe the sheeple really do need "dear leader" to round them up and drive them onward.

scary, scary stuff.

I know what you would call someone who keeps linking to people who disagree with him — "Canadian Cynic!"

Neo Conservative said...

or... as we prefer to refer to him around here... "canadian cesspool".

The inkblot pic of the CynicBoy's meathead clearly shows a tall forehead which is an indication of brain power...but the CynicBoy proves once again that there is an exception to every rule...why does someone like this character blog?
