This is something (I know, Marlan, you didn't write it) that totally
GETS MY YAK! Look at this drivel, "We 'ask' that the Senate...", totally

I FLAT OUT DEMAND that the dupes in Washington just blow this fucker off,
as I pay their SALARY! WE ALL DO! This bill is kind of a last straw for
me - they want to restrict access to one of the most open mediums of

Hello!? Who was it that climbed in the Partridge family bus and toured
the country lableing records? Who was that thinks they need to approve
music for everyone under 18?
The Republicans are too busy burning Catcher In The Rye, and protecting
children from the obscenity of Micholagelo's David to bother with the
internet and music. But fortunately the the Leftist librals took a time
out from burning Huckleberry Finn and their attacks on Earnest Hemingway,
to take up the cause of saving the people who know what they're doing
(us) from what they are doing.

As much as I'd like to belive it, no one group of people has the patent
on attempts to undermine the first amendment, except the censors.

The Supreme Court? I have nothing but contempt for the highest court in
the US.

They could, but do you really want 2 million gun toteing, New Yorker's,
with an extra 2 hours to kill a day, pissed at you? Me neither.

Being more than slightly paranoid, I see more to this than meets the
eye. My current theory is that the Repubnixon Party is in collusion
with the major media brokers (Time-Warner,Murdock,_et_al_) (on second
thought, maybe I should drop the "in collusion" part -- they *are* the
major media brokers) to destroy the current environment of low cost
access by harassing the small service providers into non-existance (or
into being gobbled up by the major media [AsshOLe, Progeny, etc.]).

They really don't give a shit what people say, do, or look at, as long
as someone's making Big Bux off of it. I mean, if the CON gave a damn
about the fake morality they like to spout, would the Playboy channel
be on the cable? Of course not.

When there's a packet meter running on your PeeCee or Maggotbox and
those nickles and dimes are trickling down from you to Rapert
Murderock, you'll be able to say all the naughty words you want cuz
the CON will be reaping the profit$.

Come on, July 5, 1998... I can hardly wait to see the smoldering
cinder of this goddam planet in my rear view mirror.
