I think I had read somewhere that Justine Bateman was the TV actress with crush by most Americans at some point in 80s. She seems quite intelligent in contrast to ditzy role she played in hit TV series of 80s, Family Ties.



She has changed a lot, a born again Christian and very anti internet censorship:

That's not anti web control, that's pro web control. She's advocating net neutrality laws :mad:


The net neutrality laws are crazy because the problems they mean to 'regulate' simply do not exist. If something becomes a problem THEN you make a law to fix it. Making laws to address problems that have not occurred yet is sheer lunacy.

IF Time Warner starts throttling content THEN we can talk about net neutrality. Until then, net neutrality is just a scheme to give big government control over the internet.

Keep the internet free! Oppose net neutrality laws! Justine Bateman is NOT our ally here.

Ok, will have to research this bit more but she does say at the beginning that she wants to keep internet "as free and available as it is right now".

This is her latest tweet:

Corporations are trying to censor your Internet.Tell your rep's that you won't stand for it. .http://www.savetheinternet.com/blackout #SOPA


Bit off topic but she comes across as pretty candid and deep compared to other acrtesses of today in another linked vid on youtube:

I don't really see how passing a bunch of laws to control something equals keeping that something as free and available as it is now. Sounds like cognitive dissonance to me. :(

That is their tactic to try and get this internet regulation passed. Saying they want to keep internet "as free and available as it is right now". It's the same way they name all of the other bills they pass. They give them false names to trick the sheeple into thinking it's a good thing.
