  • I hope the government won't try to censor the internet. It's about freedom, isn't it?
    Sure Mrs. A might not like what Mrs. B has to say, but you can be sure Mrs. C doesn't like what Mrs. A talks about!
    Who gets to decide whose opinions are valid enough to be allowed on the internet???

    That would kill it, for sure.

  • BO said that the feds would "take control of the internet during a time of urgency or emergency" though they didn't specify what justified urgency or what type of emergency. They left it open so they could define and adjust as the public responded. BO puts things out there, lets us go ya-ya over it, and then lets us "get use to the idea" before he goes further. Do not become complacent and let things slide. Write the WH and let them know how you feel. Write your Congressman/women. This is too important.

  • Obama believes in Internet for all. If it is too expensive, who know, he and his liberal cronies may step in (much like health care) even say the government should pick up the tab for those who cannot afford it. GAG!!!! But in order to do that, the government would have to step in a  R E G U L A T E.....  Yay big government, NOT!

  • Funny, I thought Republicans were narrow minded....conservative and narrow minded, hating anyone who won't agree with them. What a joke that they think Liberals are narrow minded. Liberals are openminded--that is why they are called LIBERAL. Not uptight and conservative. Get it?

  • Hi Everyone,

    We've removed several answers from this question, and wanted to explain why.

    We'd like Answers to be a place where everyone feels comfortable asking and answering questions. Ideally, when a mom posts a question in Answers, she'll get responses from other moms that address the question she's asking.

    While debates around hot topics are welcomed and encouraged, personal attacks are not. We want everyone to feel comfortable debating their point of view about any topic without being personally attacked for their beliefs.

    With that in mind, we have removed several answers from this question because they were personally attacking other members instead of discussing the original post.
