    That's a HORRIBLE idea! People will end up abusing it, just like youtube's flagging procedure is abused. There is only one real solution when you think you've encountered a terrorist promoting website... Call the FBI's local field office in your area, simple as that, and it only takes a couple minutes.

    Not no, but h*ll no!
    I'm a law and order guy as much as anyone in law enforcement, but, the 1st amendment trumps this kind of legislative stupidity.
    This would be the key to the government deeming content not suitable for viewing.
    It's like anything else the government does. Give them an inch, and they would end up
    taking the whole thing!
    No no no, keep your hands off the internet. I don't care for probably 80% of the garbage
    on the web, but, I don't have to view/listen/watch it either!

    The things people do to get themselves in the news .... even if it's an epic fail of an idea.. Sad thing is i can see one of the many Republican nominees upping the stupidity level on this one to show that they are more in control then the next guy...
  8. Maybe someone should brand the Us Senate and Congress as terrorist... after all they are the ones who funded bin laden, the Taliban, Saddam and Iraq after they funded Iran and the local population overthrew us puppets. The list goes on and on the true threat to the world is the US Government
  9. ...and obviously 4chan will end up reporting Microsoft dot com a hundred thousand times as a terrorist site...
  10. It used to be the communists, now its the terrorists.
  11. They need to justify all money they get for weapons
  12. Button size should be BIGGER then Google Logo !

    Well, if the terrorists are hooked up with Facebook, couldn't they just put a "Like" button on their sites to get around this...? :confused: :rolleyes: :haha:

    I think this sort of scare mongering by a certain lobby is one way of keeping people from questioning the 'real' motives behind the so called WOT, but then again what else one can expect from a herd of sheep.
  25. If our government followed the Constitution, we would be 180 Degrees from where we are now, in every possible way. This country is in the toilet.
