Tell Senator Lieberman: Hands off the Internet!

When I found out that Senator Lieberman had used his position as Chair of the Senate Homeland Security Committee to bully Amazon.com into kicking WikiLeaks off its internet server -- I was pretty angry. No matter what you think of wikileaks, you have to agree that members of congress should not have the power to shut down websites and deny us the right to see what the rest of the world can see! (well, everyone else in the world except those who have the misfortune to live under authoritarian regimes that don't allow access to the internet!).
Please join with me in telling the Senator to keep his hands off the internet!

1. We should tell somebody, but I don't believe that Joe cares what we think.
He's not even a Democrat.

No, I'm pretty sure Joe doesn't care what you think. Neither will the person you decide to "tell".

2. You know, all this DoS crap being pulled by these hackers today
will exacerbate this kind of legislative initiave. Be careful what you wish for.

Voice of reason two posts in, somethings not right about that.

3. Shut down Lieberman's internet and freeze his bank accounts.
Accuse him of having sex with a broken condom and raping a ferret while dating a weasel.

Hey, your the assholes going on about what a great country Sweden is, and how you want to live there. :rolleyes:
