The Government and American Censorship: 1984 In 2011.
Stanley Feld M.D.,FACP,MACE
I was going to continue to describe how the New York Times, through Ezekiel Emanuel, has fed the American public disinformation about the healthcare system to manipulate their opinions.
I decided that talking about American Censorship Day November 16th is more important.
I became aware of two bills flying through the Senate and the House by reading my son Brad Feld’s blog. The bills are Protect IP Act (PIPA – S.968) and Stop Online Privacy Act (SOPA – H.R.3261).
I searched the New York Times to see what the newspaper that (Prints all the news fit to Print”) had to say about the bills. My search produced this reply.
Your search – Protect IP Act (PIPA – S.968) and Stop Online Privacy Act (SOPA – H.R.3261). – did not match any documents under All Results Since 1851.
I have tried to get Brad excited about the lunacy of Obamacare. He has not been interested in how Obamacare will ration care, restrict access to medical care, and restrict our freedom to choose and make our own healthcare decisions.
These two bills restricting the Internet lit his wick. It also lit Fred Wilson’s wick. I hope is it wakes everyone up. We must get past this centralized government manipulation and fight for our freedoms.
Congress restricting the freedoms of the Internet is just another example in President Obama’s goal to have government control all of our decisions and actions. It will serve to restrict our freedoms.
The most vital part of our economy and job growth at the moment is the Internet. These two bills will destroy this monumental jobs creating machine.
It is another piece of lunacy brought to you by our federal government. I wonder how many Representatives and Senators have read the bills.
“There are two very disturbing bills making their way through Congress: These bills are coated in rhetoric that I find disgusting since at their core they are online censorship bills. It’s incredible to me that Congress would take seriously anything that censors the Internet and the American public but in the last few weeks PIPA and SOPA have burst forth with incredibly momentum, largely being underwritten by large media companies and their lobbyists.”
Let me remind everyone that large media companies offer huge support to President Obama and the Democrats in congress. These bills are congruent with the large antiquated medias’ vested interest and President Obama’s goal of central control over our lives.
EFF, Free Software Foundation, Public Knowledge, Progress, Fight, Participatory Politics Foundation, and Creative Commons in support of free speech and a free and open Internet are opposing the bills and have organized American Censorship Day for tomorrow (11/16/11). The goal is to make every American aware of this new trick play and stop this lunacy.
This Video video does a great job in explaining the two bills potential primary and secondary impact. I do not believe our congressional representatives understand the impact of the bills.
Someone is trying to railroad passage through congress.

If you run a website, have a blog, or are interested in protecting our freedom go to the American Censorship site to see how you can participate on 11/16/11.
The opinions expressed in the blog “Repairing The Healthcare System” are, mine and mine alone.

The bill that stops online privacy could never be a bill that protects us. Instead, it hinders our freedom of expression and the privacy given to us when we were born is now taken back from us just because of the crimes happening on the internet. The government should think of something that is more appropriate than stopping us from expressing ourselves.
