Test run of a new program to rid the internet of "controversial opinion?" Who cares? I can mail y'all the Phantom Soapbox digest on a CD, encrypted out the wazoo. That's how they do it in Cuba. Thumb drives and SD cards work pretty well too I hear. This freedom genie ain't going back in that little bottle so easily.
[The memo] states that as of July 1, TSA employees will no longer be allowed to access five categories of websites that have been deemed "inappropriate for government access."
The categories include:
• Controversial opinion
• Criminal activity
• Extreme violence (including cartoon violence) and gruesome content
The email does not specify how the TSA will determine if a website expresses a "controversial opinion."
Still, it will be interesting to see what they block. We can probably predict it with 99% accuracy, the only question is do they have the stones to go ahead and confirm our suspicions?
Shut-update! Big Sis backs off the "controversial opinion" part! Drudge gets results, baby!
