  3. Having seen Henry “Nostrilitis” in action in CA, this is his M.O. He’s very thin skinned and doesn’t like evidence of his evil residing where he can’t censor it.

  4. And “The Internet” has now taken federal funds….

  5. Air is also a critical infrastructure.

    Sadly, it leaves free speech where the PC crowd want it to be – free as long as the PC crowd approves of it …

  8. Kevin Murphy, it’s a series of tubes!

    Waxman is as good a reason to Godwin up a post as any.
