U.S. Internet Censorship

Didn't Google temporarily withdraw from China because of government required internet censorship?

What the U.S. government is poised to do looks kinda like China. That didn't take long to catch up.


[Just started reading this, so I don't know how this differs from what China did.]

This is exactly the kind of stuff that makes it harder for legal, 18yr old, misguided young girls to end up exploited on the internet - and that's not fair.

Like most bills, the real juicy stuff isn't until the very end. This isn't a bill about censorship or any of that crap. This is a Big-Pharma bill to stop the import of pharmacutical drugs from outside of the US, like drugs coming from Canada.

It's a backdoor attempt to pass a bill to stop drug imports that has already been tried over and over. Hopefully it will fail.

(I) offering, selling, dispensing,
or distributing any controlled or non
controlled prescription medication,
and does so regularly without a valid
prescription; or
(II) offering, selling, dispensing,
or distributing any controlled or non
controlled prescription medication,
and does so regularly for medication
that is adulterated or misbranded;
(C) the term ‘‘misbranded’’ has the same
meaning as in section 502 of the Federal Food,
Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 352);

They're coming for your "generic" viagra, propecia, and cialis.

In addition they got their gmail hacked from china and were losing market share to china based search engine baidu.
The journey is the reward.
