Well its official, Celtic Radio is no longer available to the troops in Iraq. Recent correspondence we received shows they are blocking our site via the military's Internet Provider.

After 4-5 emails to the provider they have gone silent and the military person have not re-contacted us.

Welcome to the new America! Change we needed! laugh.gif

Change we can believe in? ++ + Barack Hussein Obama.

Before you Obama supporters reply in defense of your messiah, remember how you blame(d) GWB for EVERYFRICKINTHING.

The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error. ~John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, 1859

Education: that which reveals to the wise, and conceals from the stupid, the vast limits of their knowledge.

Why in the name of Beelzabub's Bloated Belly would they block the station? This is American Democracy the land of Liberty and Freedom? Bull pooh.gif censored.gif

I've been following the Politics Online forum for a long time now. I generally don't comment on politics because...well, you all know what ends up happening. But this time, I need to say something.

We had the biggest turnout of black voters in Michigan for this past presidential election than we have for decades. These people didn't vote for Obama's platform. They voted for the color of his skin.

Period.

They weren't the only ones.

And now, we're paying the price.

That is all...

That sucks and ramps the socialist idea to communism or nazism. With the new health care looking much like Hitlers final solution for a segment of the population it does not look good.

I wonder what the left will say about this!

I will contact my rep and my senators though I expect little from the senators. If we could spread the word, this would be an easy fix!

I'm one of those despised Liberals, albeit from a different country and let me say that "sucks" is to mild an expletive for this. He who controls the media controls the heart, mind and thoughts of the people. I believe someone named Goebbels said that but I could be wrong. Tell a lie big enough and long enough and it becomes the truth.Also I believe Goebbels.

It's almost as though BHO is taking lessons from the tyrants in Iran who are trying to control internet access as a means of stifling dissent.
People who wonder how Nazi Germany happened only need to look at what's happening in the US now.

Yes, he was the propaganda minister and he did a fine job of convincing the German people to accept every atrocity committed by the german govt.

It should be of concern to all. Unfortunately it will take more work to make this an issue.

The Military's ISP tried to blame our ISP; however, this retired Military person (will not release his name but he is in Wikipedia for some of his heroics), stated that the error message he was receiving stated the site was being blocked by the Military ISP.

Perhaps it is because of some of the negative posts on Obama here, but that is just not fair because we have always allowed both side of the issues to be discussed here in the Politics Forum. I can remember some very heated negative posts about Bush and Cheney; but no one ever blocked that persons views.

Of course, maybe this is a new tactic in line with the recent "snitch" email address that has been setup to report websites too:

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/08/07...al-critics-say/

These are just dirty politics.

Has anyone determined that Obama is responsible or even knows about this? Could it be the idea of some low level flunky to conserve bandwidth for military purposes. (I didn't say it was a rational reason, just something a bureaucrat might come up with.) Until the source and reasoning behind this can be determined, I'd say it's a little early to be throwing blame. (And SC Shamrock, I'm not one of those who blamed Bush for everything. He made many mistakes, but he is no more Satan than Obama is.) Having said that, this is an outrage that needs to be redressed now if not sooner.

Patch;
Up until the late sixties early seventies each Province had a Censorship Board mainly concerned about movies and T.V. Thankfully they are long gone. There are those who would argue that we still have censorship because of the anti-hate laws and laws against child pornography but the are a very small minority and any sane person would agree with that type of censorship. To block a Radio station is ludicrous and is usually done through fear. We both know that the military is not a Democracy but it has no right or business interfereing in the public airways.We use to listen to Hanoi Hannah all the time . It was a big joke.

Paul, I fear this is the beginning. It infringes on the liberty and the Constitutional rights of Americans. I was aware of (I call it the Judas program) snitch program but did not know it was working yet. Should you be right about the latter, the problem originated from within the site. That is sad!

This will be very interesting to watch! Do you mind if I use your two posts in complaining to my conservative congressman?

Whether or not it is a 'low level flunky,' which it may very well be, the final burden rests on the president.

Most people didn't pay attention to his socialist platform during the presidential pre-election period. They were more concerned with "getting them d***** republicans out of there."

Well, they did. Now look where we are.

Would Cheney have been a good president? I don't know. I do know I don't want government health care, I want my money to go where I want it to, and if I want to send radio waves to another country, that the freedom the constitution grants me to do so must be upheld.

You have a president who disrespects the country he's in charge of so much, he refuses to place his hand over his heart for the Pledge of Allegiance. And people are just starting to wonder where our freedoms are going now.

We're losing them. One by one. And this is just another example.

Remember, he picked all his 'flunkies.'
