Thinking For You

America is fast becoming the country John Ashcroft hopes it to be, where the hardship of free-thinking is taken off the broken shoulders of the masses and placed instead where it belongs: in the hands of the few. When will the vast majority of Americans stand up and say, "Enough?" From the AP:

The Kansas attorney general has withheld more than 1,600 compact discs from distribution to state libraries because officials determined the albums promote violence or illegal activity, records show....

...The confiscated CDs included recordings by 25 musicians, including rap artists such as OutKast and Notorious B.I.G., rock bands Rage Against the Machine and Stone Temple Pilots, and even older acts such as Lou Reed and the 1980s experimental group Devo.

The list of albums was obtained by The Associated Press last week through an open-records request.

The American Civil Liberties Union said the decision amounted to censorship.

"What he's doing is enforcing his concept of decency on libraries around the state of Kansas, and that's not his business," said Dick Kurtenbach, executive director of the ACLU in Kansas and western Missouri.

We can't afford four more years of the mindset that this administration validates from on high. America must indeed turn a corner if she is to remain America at all.
