********BOSTON INDYMEDIA: TRAITORS*********


Boston Indymedia censored the last news blog, claiming it was a "duplicate post". It had featured a new image that is critical of the upcoming Microsoft/Yahoo merger. It also included links to four or five new news articles.

Previously their censor(s) had claimed they were censoring this news blog because it was too long. However, their censorship of the last blog refutes that idea.

The truth is they censor this news blog because Boston IMC is secretly functioning on behalf of tyranny. If these government-sponsored spooks are like their colleagues in Baltimore, they have helped themselves to top-shelf real estate in the Boston area. They also work easy "jobs"; i.e., essentially, they have retired in their late 20s.

All they have to do to keep this real estate and stay retired is betray the public in tangible ways every day. This is a requirement that Boston IMC has no trouble at all fufilling.

It must be great profiting by destroying this country.




********INDYMEDIA: BETRAYAL*********


Indymedia (IMC) says: Indymedia says: Your speech has the same fate as the polar bears! (ha ha).

Indybay.org says: this news blog is automatically censored! We don't even have to work for our money!

Cleveland.Indymedia.org says: You must write "liberty" to post! We're having so much fun forcing you to obey!

Portland.Indymedia.org says: 911 Hoax used to try to post here, but we stopped him. We now screen every post. Every post.

NewYork.Indymedia.org says: 911 Hoax posted here just once, and for about two minutes. Teams of us now screen every post, 24/7/52.

Do not mention the 911 Hoax on these websites devoted to free speech!

********WAR AGAINST INTERNET********



*MICROSOFT + YAHOO = ANNIHILATION*

now that Microsoft is making its move and merging with Yahoo the Internet as we know it may be just days away.

Microsoft, undoubtably in complete control by the Bush Dictatorship, is increasingly finding ways to spy on people using backdoors to their operating system.

Meanwhile, Yahoo has been aggressively censoring communications (e.g., emails) and monitoring conversations.

Yahoo and Microsoft are two of the greatest spying organizations in the world.

The merged entity *will* immediately begin trying to spy on every keystroke from political dissidents to the emerging, global police state.

The end of the Internet is near. Microsoft + Yahoo is an unqualified disaster for the human race.
