...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:(via sondrakistan)
"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.
