- Eliminating The Rest Of The Amendments

It's good to see some consistency at least from the Illinois state legislature. They now would like to eliminate 'anonymous' comments from the internet by doing the same thing to to first amendment that they propose doing to the second:

The bill, called the Internet Posting Removal Act, is sponsored by Illinois state Sen. Ira Silverstein. It states that a “web site administrator upon request shall remove any comments posted on his or her web site by an anonymous poster unless the anonymous poster agrees to attach his or her name to the post and confirms that his or her IP address, legal name, and home address are accurate.”

Big brother is watching. Truth is fiction, weakness is strength, defenslessness is security... blah blah blah. Welcome to Obama's brave new world.

We are pathetic.....Illinois is bankrupt and this is what they spend their time on.. Sad.Pathetic.Pitiful.
Toast.I go back to hearing "Florida is too close to call".. With Romney the dow would be 15000. I think weekly jobs would be under 300k... And yet for free phones here we are...

How's the connectivity down there?

It is actually pretty good. I was there on an early expat scouting mission a few weeks ago. A step slower than the FIOS I have, but nothing like AOL days of yore.

Full disclosure though: today's comparison and reference point was generated from my midtown NYC office over lunch.

Do they intermittently go after gold and guns as these are things of consequence and, well, JZ, Beyonce, MSNBC, Priuses and pepper spray aren't?
