Bush CREATED free speech zones. The blame lies at the Republicans feet. if the "tea party" people had any brains they would be going after the congress members that are taking away freedoms instead of being distracted by inconcequential tax bills.

This is why I have ZERO respect for the Tea Party. They are just a distraction that has no real american goal. Fight for the frigging constitution, demand the PATRIOT act get repealed. Stop your baby whining about a 0.00001% tax to save the bees.

But crack their wrists when they abuse their power and fewer will abuse their power.

Take over or break up companies that get "too big" and they amazingly will manage to exist right under the "too big" line and constantly lobby / use lawyers to find way to get bigger.

Unfettered corporate power is turning the U.S. into an oligarchy. This ends badly for a long time for many citizens and then finally ends badly for the oligarchs too. It's not a good path to head down.

Now let's google streisand effect and see what it says...

"The Streisand effect is the phenomenon whereby an attempt to hide, remove, or censor a piece of information has the unintended consequence of publicizing the information more widely, usually facilitated by the Internet."

Peoria seems like a definitive example to me.

It needs a gps so it can rat on them if they are speeders. People who speed in residential areas need to have Progressive send someone out to punch them in the taint over and over until they understand that only scumbags speed in residential areas.

It's just one of the perks of Progressive.
