And if you doubt it , read on . There is an alarming increase in the demand of governments small and large , western and not to censor the information available on the web . This mushrooming desire to hide the actions of said governments from the public eye , especially in this day and age of bailouts , Solyndras and Drone hit lists should give us all pause . 

    The time for vigilance is now . As we have seen in the recent attempts by governments to pass SOPA and other information power grabs , the governments of the world no matter their political persuasion , have one universal idea in mind … that of the subjugation of the unwashed . Our Dear Leaders understand only too well what a free and unfettered exchange of information and ideas from the citizenry will do to their way of life . 

 

(CNN) — “Western governments, including the United States, appear to be stepping up efforts to censor Internet search results and YouTube videos, according to a “transparency report” released by Google.”

 

We here in America have this to contemplate from the ” most honest , ethical and open ” administration .

 

   “In the last half of 2011, U.S. agencies asked Google to remove 6,192 individual pieces of content from its search results, blog posts or archives of online videos, according to the report. That’s up 718% compared with the 757 such items that U.S. agencies asked Google to remove in the six months prior.”

 

   A cynic might think that they had something to hide at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave . Couldn’t have anything to do with a certain upcoming election , we’re sure.
