More on this @ Gawker.com (Great news source, but not better than this blog)
I cannot believe what I am reading. All my paranoia and conspiracies about the internet become truer by the day. Don't you sit there when your internet slows down and your trying to spread some message that you know the government would not enjoy, and wonder...hmm...is this the government slowing my internet down or blocking this site?. A message like "yeah, try drugs, their not that bad." or "keep the media and government and politics seperate." You get what I'm saying, point is, you are not harming anyone by saying these words. "Human to animal Contact"? W...T...F... is going on. First their passing a bill allowing military personnel to have sex with animals and now I see this? What on earth is going on? I know bestiality harms living creatures but words?? Come on. I was bullied in middle school and to be honest, I really don't enjoy all this focus on bullying. Kids are kids, and there will be an endless waterfall of cruelty among them forever. So you can sell all the lady Gaga t-shirts you want but it's not going to stop those tears or those suicides.
Anyway back to the subject at hand here, another thing I notice and have confirmed lately with news stories like this is that there are also "spies" or as I like to think of them as "plants" or "pawns", that go into forums and spread anti-radical or anti-movement propaganda. I always suspected this and I learned it's a real problem among the internet community (the ones trying to change the world with words, the very thing that attracts government spies).
So, you're telling me that you are going to pay me to read someone's twitter all day? Or to go into internet forums/youtube videos and say "The NDAA doesn't exist, they are trying to scare you". Game on, I'm there. Would you sell out and do this, knowing that you are destroying your own dignity and just plainly a bad american and the opposite of a patriot? I'm really asking myself this. Words are harmless but spying is not kosher. I really think these jobs are just created for the sole purpose of creating jobs, and creating job growth. What do you think? I've considered that there aren't enough of these jobs to even effect the percentage of jobs created, but useless jobs like this could contribute to employment thus getting whoever in charge re-elected. Everything is political.
On the subject of words creating harmful situations I also think it's complete bullshit that you can lock someone up in a hospital for saying they are suicidal or saying they want to kill themselves. Fuck it, I don't even care if someone is saying they're going to kill others, or many. They really don't mean it, if someone is going to kill themselves, it's most likely that their just going to do it. If someone going on a murder rampage, their going to do it. Not the gas station attendant that got his hands dirty with no tip and a customer with a bad attitude who is going to "kill" somebody. Our freedom of speech is non-existent when it comes to these things.
Tying all this together, when I was in seventh grade (and getting bullied hard), I made an observation when seeing a picture of some "peanuts" characters (charlie brown). It was one of those in between the motivational posters. It depicted children of all different cultures, colors, and religious creeds holding hands around the globe.
"There's no kid in a wheelchair," I said, "There's usually a kid in a wheelchair" A very sharp and true observation.
We had these new things called "bully slips", and my teacher, being in this ignorant PC civilization, gave me one, and I got in trouble, for some harmless words I'm pretty sure I said to my best friend. How is this bullying? I don't know. Taking political correctness to this level is sickening and self-defeating. Hypocritical and nonsensical.
So next time someone "threatens" to kill you, man up and take those words, then consider getting him a gift basket, I hear those work.
