WOULD YOU GO TO JAIL FOR YOUR BLOG???

SO THIS WAS SCARY...... I WAS READING "EVERYTHING YOU LOVE TO HATE" TODAY AND HE HAS A NEW BLOG UP ABOUT THE commitee to protect journalists 2008 PRISON CENSUS OF IMPRISONED JOURNALISTS.... (YEAH I KNOW)

THE CPJ REPORTS THAT AS OF DECEMBER 1,2008 THERE ARE 125 JOURNALISTS WHO ARE IMPRISONED WORLDWIDE...WHICH IS DOWN FROM THE THE 200 THAT WERE IMPRISONED AS OF 2007... GREAT RIGHT??? WRONG!!!! OF THOSE 125 JOURNALISTS 45% (56) OF THEM ARE ONLINE JOURNALISTS, BLOGGERS, OR ONLINE EDITORS. A STATISTIC THAT REFECLETS THE LARGEST GROUP OF IMPRISONED JOURNALISTS EVER SINCE FIRST BECOMING A CATEGORY IN 1997.

EVEN MORE DISTURBING THAN KNOWNING THAT BLOGGING ABOUT THE WRONG TOPIC OR IN THE WRONG COUNTRY CAN LAND YOU IN JAIL IS THE FACT THAT THERE ARE NO FORMAL CHARGES WHEN ITS HAPPENING. IN THE US ALONE, THANKS TO THE PATRIOT ACT, THERE IS NO FEDERAL SHEILD LAW FOR JOURNALISTS. SOME OF THESE JOURNALISTS ARE IN JAIL FOR AS LONG AS THE GOVERNMENT WANTS AND DUE PROCESS IS LIKE PRAYING FOR SNOW IN THE DESERT. PEOPLE ARE BEING HELD IN SECRET LOCATIONS, AND THEIR STATUS IS UNKOWN.

ITS CRAZY NEEDLES TO SAY.

BUT I WANT TO GO ON RECORD TO SAY THIS....

I LOVE MY BLOGG AND I LOVE WRITING... I LOVE MY FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND MORE IMPORTANTLY I THINK THAT IT IS A LOAD OF CRAP THAT PEOPLE ARE BEING PERSECUTED BECAUSE THEY CHOSE TO SIT DOWN ON THEIR COMPUTER AND WRITE WHAT THEY HAVE SEEN, HEARD, AND THEIR REACTIONS TO IT.


FOR ALL OF YOU WHO BLOGG BECUASE ITS BECOME A FADD I DARE YOU TO WRITE ABOUT SOMEHTING THAT SPARKS CONTROVERSY OR THAT YOU COULD CATCH FLACK FOR... I SAY THAT WE PAY HOMAGE TO THOSE WHO HAVE LOST ALL OF THEIR RIGHTS AND FREEDOM SO THAT PEOPLE LIKE US CAN SEE THE THINGS DICTATORSHIPS AND AMBIVALENT CONTENT WOULD HAVE US NOT EVEN KNOW EXISTED.

AFTER ALL WHY HAVE A OPNION, A STORY TO TELL AT ALL AND NOT BE WILLING TO SHARE IT AT ALL COSTS?
