Carol, over at No Sheeples Here truly is standing guard over liberty. One needs no further proof than to read her admonishment to the media and, yes, to many of us bloggers over the deafening silence she heard when the news surfaced that some 73,000 blogs were shut down by our benevolent government.

What in the world!?

This is indeed, to use the regime’s favorite word, historic, unprecedented is a word I would add. An entire server on the allegations that an unspecified number of the clients were sharing copyrighted material?

I would quote from the article in question but you should read Carol’s post and follow the link from her site.

Needless to say, I believe this to be more Jack-Booted thuggery from the Obama regime.


There is another post on Carol’s site that deserves your attention as well, all of them actually, but this one she asked me to share, so I will gladly do so. It seems that while rummaging around in what must be a vast collection of artwork and saved articles from the web she ran across a piece that struck a chord of truth and begged for action.

I agree, Carol. That post is here.


On a personal note, I had planned to finish the Robo-Love Experiment series today, but the news of the server being taken down prompted me to switch to archive mode. I’ll be grabbing as much as I can from the old blog (just in case) before I do anything else so, it’s uncertain if I can get to it what with normal chores and the various and sundry. Life does interfere with blogging now and again.

    Thanks so much for this post as it came in very handy just minutes ago. I was told I had an “Uninformed Opinion” Yeeeaaa right.

    Typical name calling. Point them to the facts. Carol’s got the original article linked at her place.

    […] Dear LB readers, please realize that our first amendment rights are being persecuted by the left, articles like this could be shut down by a progressive tyranny that is driven I think by One World Government Ideology, please follow this link for a proof of action. Thanks Libertarian Buddha!  click here for link…. […]

    Thanks for all that you do and for having confidence in me. Linking to the Orwell post and then following up with a link to the “One Nation Under God” piece has made this old gal happy.

    All the best to you and your readers.

      The pleasure is mine Carol. Proud to stand guard with you.

    It seems improbable that so many blogs using just the WordPress format would be conducting illegal file sharing. I would caution conservative bloggers: BE CAREFUL ABOUT NOT BREAKING ANY COPYWRITE LAWS. Use creative commons images. I have a feeling they will use this as an excuse to silence decent.
