Google Calls for New Rules Re: Internet Censorship

A top Google executive on Wednesday called for new rules to put pressure on governments that filter the Internet, saying the practice was hindering international trade.

Alan Davidson, director of United States public policy for Google, told a joint Congressional panel that the United States should consider witholding development aid for countries that restrict certain Web sites. He said censorship had become more than a human rights issue and was hurting profit for foreign companies that rely on the Internet to reach customers.

Online Gambling Would Welcome Rush Limbaugh to Costa Rica

Radio host Rush Limbaugh has suggested that should President Obama's health plan sail through Congress, he will pack up his things and move to Costa Rica. 

Limbaugh has chosen the perfect destination.  The online gambling industry set up shop in this Central American paradise during the mid-1990's.  Since that time operators have gone on to opening their own restaurants and constructing office buildings.  Limbaugh won't have any difficulty broadcasting his radio show out of CR either with all those enormous satellite dishes sitting on the properties of sportsbooks.

Obama: Greater Than Jesus?

A Danish newspaper has suggested that US President Barack Obama is "Greater than Jesus".  The Politiken,  Denmark's oldest newspaper, featured an unsigned editorial this week.

"Obama is, of course, greater than Jesus - if we have to play that absurd Christmas game. But it is probably more meaningful to insist that with today's domestic triumph, that he has already assured himself a place in the history books - a space he has good chances of expanding considerably in coming years."

Big Brother Internet Laws in Australia

Internet censorship is due to happen in Australia, just before next years election.

As most intelligent people know, when something becomes "illegal", it often becomes more popular!  In addition, tech savvy folks will always find a way to get what they want, and criminals will still find ways to commit crimes.  I seriously doubt criminals would openly conduct their criminal business activities on a basic internet service.

I for one strongly believe that people should be able to do (and watch etc) want they want in their own homes (as long as it doesn't hurt anyone).
