Our Freedoms

Recently, many of us bloggers and readers have cheered the push for democracy and individual freedoms in the middle east and the Ukraine. However, our own freedom of speech is being threatened by the FEC and that sad, sad election reform bill that proved to be a complete disaster during the past election season. Blogs of all types and sizes have been threatened by the FEC and a desire by some to regulate, if not outright end, blogs such as this one. There is a petition at On-Line Coalition that all should go and sign to remind the powers in Washington that we not sit still for such nonsense. This is a non-partisan issue and the entire spectrum of the blogosphere is coming together on this. I encourage all fellow bloggers and concerned readers to follow the link and sign this important petition.

Thanks to Wizbang for the heads up.
