It's beginning to feel a lot like Russia.

You know it's bad when the Russians are complaining about censorship.

Excerpt: “As a result of the excruciating and sluggish exchanges with the Editors, the likes of which could only be found in diplomatic history, it was decided to give up trying to place Sergey Lavrov’s article in Foreign Affairs. This tough experience reminded of the worst features of the Soviet censorship past, which it appears some in the US would like to repeat.” - the Ministry reports.
It is a pity, indeed, that in parts of US media there exists a trend of “state protection”, which narrows intellectual resource of America. We are convinced the USA deserves better.

And it doesn't stop there. Now the Senate is barking about "internet censorship" for the "sake of the children".

Excerpt: In a meeting where civil liberties groups were not invited, Democrats and Republicans said that the web needed to be censored to protect children.

Yeah. That's why they want to censor the web. For the "sake of the children". Jeesh. Lie to me some more.

Next thing you know, the FBI will be creating the US version of the Stasi.

Oh. Wait. They are doing that.

Excerpt: The FBI is taking cues from the CIA to recruit thousands of covert informants in the United States as part of a sprawling effort to boost its intelligence capabilities.
