    I can establish without refute that [THIS COMMENT HAS BEEN CENSORED BY THE FEDERAL BUREAU OF CONTROL THROUGH CENSORSHIP].

    Censorship in the United States, puts us on a slippery slope, to say the least. We are confronted with a lot of hateful speech almost minute by minute.  However, we hold dear the freedom of speech this country gives us. Over the last week though, several newspapers enforced censorship by not showing Doonesbury political satire cartoons on abortions. In that particular case, a business enterprise exercised their own form of censorship.  While I may personally despise some of the hateful comments, speeches, written words, etc., by fringe element zealots, I do have the wherewithal to ignore them or counter with my own opinion pieces. Freedom of speech is what makes us unique.

    It is used by those in power to limit debates that they can't win. The "main" press is liberal controlled. They slant everything into their political bent. Hubpages is liberal controlled. Ditto.  Limbaugh & Hannity are quasi conservatives, (republiCRATS), they slant everything to their political bent. The Internet is vastly controlled by moderators with a left bias, ditto. Life isn't fair, and was never meant to be fair.

    Self censorship is to avoid getting in trouble with your boss, spouse, etc. Self-censorship.
    It's a dirty secret

    Google self censorship in China is distasteful to say the least.

    I think it's something we have to keep a keen eye on. It's easy to get into a slippery slope situation where gradually more and more in censored to the point where  the people have little or no say in their own country.
