44th US President Barack Obama signed a $787 billion dollar stimulus package with broadband in mind. After the 2009 news that the FBI is trying to hire the largest scale of employees in FBI history, one must stop and think just why. What “changes” will broadband face? National Business News shares of Obama wanting to create an easier way for doctors to gather information to cross over red tape along with internet use for all children. Sure, this may create more jobs and keep America ahead of other countries, but what does this mean for journalists and bloggers? They may either be monitored or regulated over content produced, that remains to be seen. As for children having a daily use of internet, have you asked your child to do a math problem by using memory rather than through technology? Connecting the dots, dashes…and dots.

The FBI is in the midst of hiring the most employees since it’s creation. The feds would gain control over much issues and situations surrounding America with this kind of pull. Would the FBI have something to say about investigating journalists or bloggers over their reports masked in opinion? Probably not since they are as quiet as a whisper, as many scratch their head wondering if they should be paranoid. Since Obama never truly focused on the US borders after danger has been foreseen in the future, do you really think he’s going to care to swipe your ISP connection if you bash his character online, even when it is an opinion? He will keep all of the new feds busy on the look out for terrorist connections, but also it is my opinion that the government will monitor the journalism and blogging use of the internet. The internet can be a form of propaganda tool for the re-election of Obama and “shedding false light” can become beneficial to Obama as well. Remember, most only know as much as they read. That’s why journalists and bloggers need to keep it real and grounded without going out of bounds.

Change.Gov page it is shared that MPAA insists that ISP filters should be removed after three strikes on copyright infringement has been concluded, but what is the catch most do not see? Perhaps other countries has this three strike rule, but the reports are coming in that some of the claims are bogus without proof. Meaning that they can just call you a bunny when you are duck, just like that *. With the new rules noticed of Facebook’s ownership of content, perhaps Facebook is taking responsibility for passing information since they might be held accountable for the content that comes through, and not only the user. They have gained control over whether they can continue an account, but this has already been enforced once a user agreed to their agreement. As for the three strike your out, it has only been encouraged and not yet imposed outside of regular base internet companies.

As for journalists and bloggers across America, the Sons of Liberty has taught us to not give into the eyes of outside control, for we are the people that can still make a difference. If Big Ben did not give birth to the encouragements of the American Guesser, would some journalists or bloggers still be where they are today? It’s all American baby, and united we stand as devided we fall. When it comes to this great internet highway, would we allow a king to tax our land, break our informative bones, or tread on the very opinions that are protected by the US constitution? Not I. The difference between freedom of speech and crossing the lines is found in slander. Once you slander you take a stripe off of your own flag.

There are some things that journalists and bloggers can do to remain in the open view or this internet world. First, watch out for copyright infringement. Learn to take your own shots instead of copying photos, even if you wish to distort the photo to make it your own. It’s still theirs. Second, be honest but not foul mouthed or falsely approaching in slander. This just screams, “I have an issue and should seek anger management”. That is going to be a red flag. It’s OK to state an opinion of Barack Obama such as “I particularly think that Barack Obama is gutting out America from the inside”. “In my opinion” is a powerful statement and can be used in most situations as a form of personal right in opinion. However be honest to your good willed desire to share your responsible voice and you may never have to worry about being kicked offline or investigated. Some call it full censorship, but as long as you can get your word across, little censorship has been met. Let’s use it, not abuse it.

I have traveled online and seen such angered ideas openly to the extent of disrespect. Those types of journalists and bloggers create a whirlpool of knowledge mixed with tasteless ideas. As American journalists and bloggers should make others aware of the events unfolding around them, they shouldn’t try to create another reason to keep therapists in business. That’s not the kind of stimulus this country needs. If there would ever be an internet revolution, I would rather join those that understand the words diplomatic reality rather than inner rage to the point of self-internet-destruction. The beauty of America is the freedom of choice. I choose to allow my children to understand the internet, but “race” them daily through math problems by mind rather than computer. When the electric in this world goes down, my kids are going to be able to make sense of it. As for being a content producer, a website owner, web designer and producer, blogger, writer and off-line poet, I will keep it real, I will keep my freedoms going by having a little respect in my works for the sake of myself and others. For the creative journalists and bloggers whom wish to form waves to gather better views, be”a”ware, be very aware of the world you paint. You may be held accountable for it.
