Special Edition!

Well, it would appear that a certain Senator wants to offer the Newspapers some assistance, courtesy of the tax payers. This touches more than just my wallet. His plan is to offer a bail out to the newspapers, and allow them to go "non-profit." In order for any entity to gain "non-profit" status, they must abide by a few political rules. One is, they cannot endorse a particular candidate, and they have to watch the way certain views are expressed, as well as avoiding certain hot button politically correct issues. Basically, I would say, this Senator wants to eliminate the First Amendment. If the government can do to the newspapers what it did to religious organizations, our information will be silenced, except of course, what Big Brother wants us to think. Only the programing will get through this filter. So far, this Senator isn't garnering much support, but clearly it is on the table and the idea has been presented. It's only a matter of time until our Congress manages a way to reword it, or add it to some other bill and without any fanfare . . . the presses will be bound and gagged.
. . . and there shall none of you be freed from being bondmen . . . history in Holy Scripture
