You didn't need to say it out loud for the Ministry of Truth to know what you were thinking...
Seriously, though, it's a worrisome development. We'll see how it plays out over the next couple of days, but this is something that a great many of us have been worried about. Just how far can/will this administration go to silence their critics? That remains to be seen.
I agree with your statement. It just that it’s not quite 5pm here and drinking before 5 is probably not a good idea.
But if this keeps up I may start at 4.
Being with my grandkids last week, I was really sad that they may never know the greatness of America. I mean they are fine now, but what will their future be?

Unease over US role on net control Australian IT
MORE than 1000 internet experts have gathered in Athens for the first UN-sponsored internet governance forum, amid grumbling over the dominant position of the US.
This is a renewed effort of a failed attempt last year to silence truth tellers, wrestle control of the internet away from a free speech America (where there is no control, thank Gd) and shut down the last vestige of free, unfettered opinion worldwide. The internet is the worst thing that ever happened to despots and dictators everywhere.
