Have you challenged your mind today? This week? This month? Year? Ever?  Get with it, the mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Faith in the game is required reading for those who can't understand science, scientists, engineers or for that matter anybody else that is highl;y technically inclined.
Give somebody a fish and you feed them for a day, teach them to fish and you fead them for a lifetime.
Support education, it's one of the best ways to expand the mind, and create a strong United States of America, or whatever country you are from.  For that matter, world.  An education helps to increase a person's earning ability, and chance of getting a job.  Generally the higher the level of education, the greater the earning potential.  The greater the earning potential, the greater the ability to pay taxes. This means that the person will more likely be earning an income and paying their fair share of taxes, instead of living off of government handouts.   If you yourself are considering not going on to college or a trade school, please reconsider for your own sake.  If you think that education is only for those who can afford it, think again.  Afterall, the smaller the number of people needing monitary help to get by day to day, the greater the percentage of your income you get to keep for your self.  If you bothered to pay attention in ecconomics class you would realise that very simple cost accounting justifies public support of education.  Giving a person one year of education plus room and board may cost twice as much as supporting that same person on welfare for one year, but after they have a usefull education they become a taxpayer instead of a handout receiver.  13 Years of K-12 education expences at $5,000/year plus 4 years of collage or tech school at $10,000/year generates better than $5000/year in income taxes for 45 years.  This only accounts for the taxes the individual pays from their personal income.  Add on to those the taxes paid on products and services produced by the individual and it easily tips the scale further over twards justification for supporting education.

"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

Benjamin Franklin, 1759

Immovable object (censorship) meets the irresistable force (the net).
It was never imagined was that someday there'd be an irresistable force that didn't have to bang it's head up against the immoveable object, but could just flow right on around it. 
"The internet sees censorship as a fault and routes around it".

Let there be no doubt: Big Brother is not the government. Big Brother is corporate greed.

Some words to ponder.  They may have been written years ago about the actions of a government long sence deposed.  However they are something to seriously think about even today.

By Reinhold Niemoller
When Hitler attacked the Jews I was not a Jew, therefore I was not concerned.
And when Hitler attacked the Catholics, I was not a Catholic, and therefore, I was not concerned.
And when Hitler attacked the unions and the industrialists, I was not a member of the unions and I was not concerned.
Then Hitler attacked me and the Protestant church -- and there was nobody left to be concerned.

In a different varsion:
"First They Came for the Jews"
By Pastor Niemoller
First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Or a modernized version:
When they took the fourth amendment, I was quiet because I didn't deal drugs.
When they took the sixth amendment, I was quiet because I was innocent.
When they took the second amendment, I was quiet because I didn't own a gun.
Now they've taken the first amendment, and I can say nothing about it.

An even more modernized version:
First they came for the Spammers, but I didn't speak up, because I was not a spammer.
Then they came for the Trolls, but I didn't not speak up, because I was not a Troll.
Then, when they came for the pale losers, there was no one left to speak for me.
