Of course, that doesn’t preclude taxes of one sort or another.

Wow! I see a document so anti-censorship that no proof-reader was involved. Here are a few issues with the proposed bill of rights that a proof-reader worth a damn would’ve mentioned:

The right to a free and uncensored Internet.

The right to an open, unobstructed Internet.

Free, uncensored, open, AND unobstructed? All four could’ve been put into a single line.

The right to gather and participate in online activities.

The right to create and collaborate on the Internet.

The right to freely share their ideas.

The right to freely associate on the Internet.

Again, these four lines could’ve been condensed into a single line without losing anything. Failing that, at least crunch it down to two.

The right to equality on the Internet.

The right to access the Internet equally, regardless of who they are or where they are.

Is this not redundant? One’s a vague generalization and the other is quite specific. If specifics are necessary, why include the general line?

An internet bill of rights is a long overdue idea. But it needs some fine-tuning. Fortunately, its open to constructive criticism. I’ll take them up on that later tonight.

What’s wrong with Democrat Wyden and Republican Issa? Why don’t they act like real Congressional leaders and focus on issues that they can’t agree on? /

My guess is that “a free and uncensored internet” refers to content while “an open and unobstructed internet” refers to net-neutrality issues of preferential content delivery and Egyptian-style plug pulling,
