SOME THOUGHTS

Hello dear world

How are you ? I have to say that the wind in my neck of the woods is kicking up quite a tantrum. Maybe the wind is acting all big and brutish because of the recent Don Imus incident. I agree that he was wrong for what he said but now it seems like censorship might come into play.

Pretty soon it might happen that no one will be able to listen to singers like Eminem, 50 Cent, Pink, Snoop Doggy Dog and many others. We might not even be able to read any books or turn on the television for fear that it might offend someone.

I'M ANGRY !!!!!!!

I think we are not far from entering a world like that of Fahrenheit 451 and George Orwell's 1984. "BIG BROTHER" is certainly watching. It seems that we are being surrounded by the Thought Police.

We are quicky losing :

1. Freedom of Speech

2. Freedom of the Press

3. Freedom of Assembly

4. Freedom of Thought.

Pretty soon I might be arrested for ThoughtCrime. Soon we might all be thrown behind bars for what we think, say, listen to, read, wear on a t-shirt or watch on television. I'm afraid that I will be next for what I write in my J-Land Diary and for what I write in my handwritten diary I keep you never know. Perhaps Big Brother will come after me.

My dear world - BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING !!!!!

I just thought I would share that with you.

Take care everyone.

You know I love you dearly but I must disagree with you on the Imus situation. If you go back and read what you've said and give some thought to the incident you will notice a big difference which makes what you've said invalid. Imus targeted the Rutgers basketball players directly. Tho I abhore the singers you mentioned in your article because of their disgusting lyrics and put down of women in general their songs are not targeting anyone specifically. Where as Imus and his producer mentioned the Rutgers team directly. To protest his actions has nothing to do with censorship. It is simply a response to a very disgusting attempt at humor targeting a specific group of women whose actions in general were decent and admirable and who did not deserved to be belittled as they were.

As far as your anger is concerned might I suggest you give thought to what you just wrote. We are no where near losing our freedom of speech. If you look around you won't miss all of the digusting verblage showing on TV. Especially on cable and satelite. How long was Imus on MSBC saying insulting and decrepit thingsabout all sorts of people. No dear we are no where near losing our freedom od speech. We are, however, loosing and maybe already have lost the freedom of press. Not because of big brother watching us but big brother deregulating the press thus narrowing the ownership of all media to just a handful of conglomerates who own and control most of what we see, hear and read as media. No dear, big brother, in the sense you are speaking is not the enemy.

"ditto" to yeolecontractor's comments ... but I have to admit, Imus shouldn't have been yanked off air for his ignorant, racist remarks ... Instead, the lady basketball players should have been offered a chance to horse whip his dumb a$$!!!... LOL
