They're Trying To Make Blogging Illegal For Anyone Holding A Job

Unbelievable. The campaign finance reformers want to make it illegal to blog more than one hour a week, four hours a month from a corporation's place of business.

More than that and you could be subject to a legal complaint -- the complaint being the coporation, through you, is making illegal in-kind donations to a political party, because, I guess, the coproration is faciliating your expression of your opinions by providing you with a job and a computer.

And maybe even legal pads and post-its, if you write longhand before posting.

Your employer will be forced to make blogging as carefully patrolled as trolling for child porn in order to keep themselves out of dutch with the FEC. And, of course, they'll have to fire you if they catch you, if only to prove they are not covertly supporting your danger-to-the-Republic opinionating.

Like I said: unbelivable.

The campaign finance "reformers" will simply not stop until as few people as possible -- only those with straight media jobs -- are granted those dangerous First Amendment rights.
