Senate Makes it Official: The Internet is Scary!

internetsafety.jpgIt's Internet Safety Month and no one even called us?


Last month, it seems, Lisa Murkowski and some of her most pious friends in the Senate proposed a resolution declaring June "The Internet Is Raping Our Children Month," and it passed without note, attracting the attention of no one but the developers of filtering software.

The text of the bill, sort of, is after the jump.

* Whereas there are more than 1,000,000,000 Internet users worldwide;

* Whereas, in the United States, 35,000,000 children in kindergarten through grade 12 have Internet access;

* Whereas approximately 80 percent of the children of the United States in grades 5 through 12 are online for at least 1 hour per week;

* Whereas approximately 41 percent of students in grades 5 through 12 do not share with their parents what they do on the Internet;

* Whereas approximately 24 percent of students in grades 5 through 12 have hidden their online activities from their parents;

* Whereas approximately 31 percent of the students in grades 5 through 12 have the skill to circumvent Internet filter software;

* Whereas 61 percent of the students admit to using the Internet unsafely or inappropriately;

* Whereas 20 percent of middle school and high school students have met face-to-face with someone they first met online;

* Whereas 23 percent of students know someone who has been bullied online;

* Whereas 78% of Senators have been bullied online;

* Whereas 90% of Internet users have been demonstrably mean to Mr. Lieberman, in particular;

* Whereas we think the Internet might have something to do with why there are so many immigrants;

* Whereas Americans are, by and large, a very stupid people, who should be guided in this, as in all things, by the wise piety of their intellectual, moral, and financial betters;

* Whereas Ms. Murkowski once saw a really dirty picture on one of the Internets;

* Whereas did you know that there are entire websites devoted to adding really disrespectful captions to pictures of the President, on this Internet?

* Whereas seriously, it's just a bunch of nerds, who gives a shit about them; Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the Senate--

(1) designates June 2007 as ''National Internet Safety Month'';

What did we say this morning? Something about how "They want a war with Iran," and "Please do not listen to news reports about Trump telling his people to cool their jets with the Iran talk, because they want a war with Iran, and all they are looking for is their trigger"?

News came out early this morning that Iran shot down a US drone in the Strait of Hormuz, outside Iranian waters. Let's see what our president and his war-bonering GOP shitmouths in Congress have had to say about that:

Great. Just great. So what's happening now?

Awesome. Just splendid. Trump is having a cuddle party today with John Bolton (who's had a hard-on to bomb Iran since the Bush administration); Mike Pompeo (who's been making the rounds lying and saying Iran and al Qaeda are best friends, thus implying that it's very legal and very cool for Trump to strike Iran without congressional authorization, based on the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) Congress voted for five days after 9/11); and Patrick Shanahan, the outgoing acting Defense secretary, who will make way for another acting Defense secretary, because who needs real Defense secretaries? (The new guy, Mark Esper, is part of the meeting too.) And as Senator Schatz points out above, Trump is emotionally unstable and doesn't know dick about foreign policy, so it's just great that he's having an emergency meeting with these unhinged hawks about this right now.

Tell us what this all means, unhinged hawk Lindsey Graham!
