Government regulation?

Or rather strangulation.. of blogs. If you get a product from a company, and decide to review it, guess what the government wants to get their meddling little fingers in on! the FTC issued a guidance document yesterday requiring bloggers who write testimonials about products to disclose large gifts or payments, or they will run afoul of the FTC’s regulations on advertising. They want to regulate broadband internet, or any internet (hence Obama's internet czar), and they've put forward a bill to be able to take down the net 'in case of emergency" including private companies. They regulate everything else to the nTH degree, why not your internet and computer. :|
