Congress Shall Make No Law...
Reader "Carnivore" gets extra credit for the following commentary on proposed FEC regulation of political speech:
First we need to license all bloggers and register all blogs. If you aren't doing anything illegal you shouldn't fear this. The cops just want to know who has the blogs and who doesn't.
Next we need to stop the production of blogs that have no sporting purpose.
Third, we need to ban all small, concealable, and cheap blogs as being too inaccurate.
Fourth, we need to ban all large and expensive blogs as being too accurate.
Fifth, blogs should be limited to no more than 10 entries. All High-Capacity blogs should be banned.
Sixth, ban the import of all foreign blogs based on arbitrary criteria.
Seventh, ban all blogs with more than 1 assault feature. For instance, a blog can have a Comments button but no "conspicuously protruding" Links button.
Eighth, all blogs must be password protected so they cannot by used by children.
Ninth, no blogger can post more than one-blog-per-month.
Tenth, no blog can be viewed across state lines.
