No that isn't a joke. Attorney General Tim Fox wants your Internet under his thumb ... fer the childrens, o' course. Read this. I'm serious, read it. Don't wait for the executive summery. Just.Read.The.Damned.Article already. I'll wait.
Are you done? Good. Here is that summery. 47 state Attorney Generals have a sent a strongly worded letter to Congress begging that free-speech protections on the Internet be gutted and discarded because the Internet hates children and innocence. Here's the letter. In short, it says that bad things happen to children and local law enforcement can't stop that because states don't have control over anyone who might possibly be accountable for communicating the intention for bad things to happen in the entire world. Please, Congress, give states the ability to regulate what gets posted on the Internet by holding anyone in our jurisdiction accountable as we see fit, because, ya know, children!.
Do you think what I've written is hyperbole? If so, then you didn't read the article, did you? If not, go read it now. I'm not making this up. That is exactly the power the 47 state AGs have just requested, the power to let local legislation and enforcement decide who is guilty when bad things happen based on a method of communication, of supposedly free speech.
I don't know whether John Bullock would have signed such a letter. I do know that Tim Fox did. Such a short time into his tenure, and Tim Fox wants to control your comments, your website, your web host. Tim Fox hates your free speech, and hates your Internet.
