readerpoll.JPGNo cleaned feed, thank you, Stephen Conroy. In fact, you can take your politically-oriented, hidden agenda internet filtering plan and shove into your anal orifice if it’s such a wonderful device for cleaning your feed. Clearly, judging from the results of an online poll conducted by Fairfax, 11,228 people out of 11,813 feel just as I do on the matter. You’re impinging on my freedom to choose, Stephen Conroy, a freedom which is innately mine by right as an adult. A voting adult, if I need to remind you.
If Jim Wallace and his bible-bashing Australian Christian Lobby minority think filtering their internet feed is appropriate, then good for them. I don’t and 95% of Australians appear to agree. The issue is not one of protecting children, that’s a parent’s job, not one for government. The issue is one of individual personal freedoms.
If this issue gets up in the Senate, which I seriously doubt, then Prime Minister Rudd can kiss any re-election farewell. Forget Climate Change or ‘Big New Taxes’. Such issues pale into insignficance alongside that of a government attempting to deliberately subvert a societies freedom to choose. Australia is not a theocratically socialist society and ought not be beholden to the minority views or the closed minded inadequacies of those who would reneg on their parental responsibilities, providing any government with an excuse to curtail choice.

SAY NO TO ANY ATTEMPT TO CLEAN YOUR FEED!

  1. Buried at sentence 9 or 10 of Conroy’s statement was that, apart from banning access to certain porn it would also shut off “extremist political views and drug use..”.
    So who or what defines ‘extrme political views’ – as for drug use, check out the Valley, St kilda or George St.
    Wowsers, morons and malevolent control freeks, and then there’s the Opposition.
    Wadda choice.
