Neal Barton's POV

"What next?"

Tuesday, June 12, 2012 - 6:39pm

There is an article in CNS news today in which Michelle Bachmann asks, does government think it's God?

You may think that is ridiculous until you hear about this.

The U.S. Labor Department is backing down, but it seems they are not liking the fact that the financial figures have not been good as of late.

So, what does this bunch in Washington try and do? They wanted to issue a laptop computer to all business writers so they could keep track of the numbers.

Fox News reports the Labor Department has backed off a plan to force news agencies to use government-issued computers and other equipment to report on jobless reports and other key economic data, following a GOP-led House hearing this week, according to several published reports.

Agency officials have said they want reporters who analyze, then write about economic reports inside their so-called "lock up" room to use U.S. computers, software and Internet lines so the government can further protect against such potential security breaches as hacking.


But the plan also resulted in cries about potential free-speech violations and the government now having computer access to news agencies.

Can you believe that?

They want to control everything.

That darn first amendment gets in the way of everything.

That's my point of view, what's yours?
