  1. “Dissent?” That’s a new word for flacking tirelessly in favor of rich people, polluters and failed wars.

    Speaking power to truth, eh?

  2. I’ve also had trouble visiting a few sites at Dunn Bros., though I shouldn’t have been trying to access World Net Daily anyways. . .
    I did get pretty ticked a few years back when the Minneapolis Public Library system told me that Captains Quarters was “pornographic”- some little fiend is probably going around and censoring political content at both those places.

  3. Oddly – for about two days, CaptainsQuarters and PowerLine were snagged as “political content” at my employer. And then it went away.

  4. I guess I’ll respond to this:

    “‘Dissent?’ That’s a new word for flacking tirelessly in favor of rich people, polluters and failed wars.”

    My own view is that the American Left is all for raising income taxes on the upper-middle class and small business owners, but not for taxing the actual wealth of the super-rich (e.g. the Kennedy family’s trust funds).
    And I thought it was a bit obnoxious for Lefties to cry “fat-cat” in 2004 or even today, when the wealth of the Bush family pales in comparison to that of Al Gore’s, John Kerry’s or John Edwards’. What do they have to fear from increased income taxes when most of their cash comes from their investments?

    As for pollution, it’s nice that some members of the Left are keeping watch over some corporate pollution, but why run cover for the Peoples Republic of China? If you’re defending China’s right to dam rivers and pour toxic sludge into their water supply, why should we take any of you seriously?

    “Speaking power to truth, eh?”: makes about as much sense as “speaking truth to power” I’m not a big fan of trumped up charges and name-calling.

    As for censoring internet content at libraries and cafes, I’d be just as troubled if they were censoring the Daily Kos, etc.- of course I want free speech, the free flow of information, etc. but most importantly we should always give the Left every opportunity to embarrass themselves.
