It is disturbing as I have watched the chaos and violence unfold in Egypt. Did we not just see Tunisia go through the same thing because of oppression, the state of their economy, and corruption? I am disturbed because it could happen here in the good old United States of America!
I hear the U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton along with President Obama call for calm in Egypt and telling the leader of Egypt that he should listen to his people and stop blocking the media, internet, and phone service-it is their right as human beings to be able to express themselves. This is odd when this same administration, are the liberals/progressives pushing for gun control, Net Neutrality, and the Fairness Doctrine in this country. Nothing like speaking with a “fork tongue”! These are the same liberals/progressives that have spent our posterity into a $14 trillion oblivion in just two years!
As Egypt nears closer to the brink of anarchy because of high unemployment, inflation, poverty, oppression; so does the United States of America. This kind of chaos is coming to the USA if the liberals/progressives have their way and that will be done at any cost, including trying to have all ammunition stamped, outlaw semi-automatics, using a little girl killed at the hands of a insane man in Tucson, AZ, and even trying to by-pass the Congress and the U. S. Constitution by signing an Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) from the United Nations. The liberals/progressives are not willing to stop there, Oh No!
As seen in Egypt, the liberals/progressives are trying to get their hands on the internet so they can regulate what people can see and hear. They are trying to do this by passing a Net Neutrality bill that would give the Federal Communications Commission which equals the Federal Government power to tell the cable and satellite companies how much to charge, who to charge, block who they do not like, charge byte by byte usage like in Australia and New Zeeland, what you put on your iPhone or Blackberry, and have the power to turn it on and off as the Federal Government chooses-Gee how has that been working out for Egypt? This Net Neutrality garbage has nothing to do with being neutral and “leveling the playing field”; it has to do with the fact the Federal Government wants to control what the American people read and write!
On top of this, Egypt has newspapers, TV, and radio but as seen this past week, the Egyptian government still controls it. Nothing like squelching the freedom of speech! The liberals/progressives are trying to tote the Fairness Doctrine as something that will be “fair and balanced” for all Americans to watch and listen to. Because it supposedly makes it so the media has to give both sides of an argument of an issue, no matter what (if this was true, MSNBC would have heaps of trouble). That is what they want you to believe and tries to use the 1970’s and most of the 1980’s as such a great time to watch politics because it was so “fair and balanced”-I was there and that is a bunch of garbage! It did nothing but squelch the opinions of many Americans! The only reason the liberals/progressives are pushing for the Fairness Doctrine is so they can shut down anybody who does not agree them and try to brainwash Americans to think they way they do. As history is shown, the liberals/progressives do not like competition-plus they do not do that well to begin with.
If Americans think that what is happening in Egypt cannot happen here, they better think again! Take a look around our economy is not doing well, there is an increase in poverty since Obama and his cronies took over, increasing unemployment, a $14 trillion debt in just 2 years, trying to take our God given right to defend our families, our homes, and our borders, our country and trying to take control over the internet and the media by passing a Net Neutrality Act and the Fairness Doctrine. These are the ways that governments fall and the liberals/progressives (extremists) are counting on it so they can swoop in and “pick up the pieces” to implement a communist government. Wake up and realize what happened in Tunisia and now in Egypt can happen here in good old United States of America!
