China And Hillary Favor Internet Restrictions?

On Sunday China imposed restrictions on what news content and how much can be accessed by its people. In a free society this is not necessary and by doing so the free will of people is impeded. Could that ever happen here? It depends on what way the wind blows but Hillary Clinton, the senator who can not vote for John Roberts because she is not sure how he feels about our rights, blah, blah, blah, talked about restricting our rights of access. Or at least she hinted that way in a 1998 interview. It seems she was upset with all the Internet chat about hubby Bill’s sexual woes. She said:

“We are all going to have to rethink how we deal with this, because there are all these competing values … Without any kind of editing function or gatekeeping function, what does it mean to have the right to defend your reputation?” she said.
“I don’t have any clue about what we’re going to do legally, regulatorily, technologically — I don’t have a clue. But I do think we always have to keep competing interests in balance. I’m a big pro-balance person. That’s why I love the founders — checks and balances; accountable power. Anytime an individual or an institution or an invention leaps so far out ahead of that balance and throws a system, whatever it might be — political, economic, technological –out of balance, you’ve got a problem, because then it can lead to the oppression people’s rights, it can lead to the manipulation of information, it can lead to all kinds of bad outcomes which we have seen historically. So we’re going to have to deal with that. And I hope a lot of smart people are going to –”

Yeah, she is a big balance person so long as the balance is closer to her end. I want to know where she was when Dan Rather was smearing Bush with phony papers. How come she did not jump up, big balance person that she is, and say wait, that is wrong. We need to regulate what you say.

Sounds to me like Hillary Clinton is in favor of people’s rights and free speech unless it affects her. And this is the jackass who will vote against Roberts because she thinks he will not uphold our rights.

Can’t Understand Normal Thinking.
