    I have seen more ads popping up in the last year than ever before - so to me its already like that on a good majority of sites. Also TV commercials use to only be alowed 1 minute of commercials, and I beleive that is now been doubled. On occasion I find a TV show I like and wind up losing interest because the commercials are too long, and not only too long / too many, they are pretty much about getting your attention by doing something stupid, like watching animals sing and breakdance, young people hurt themselves, and some are even demeaning kids (Ally bank). Some day I probably will discontinue basic cable, you pay alot of money now for crap content and double the commercials.

      Soon cobalt it will be like this movie: [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdImGZA-2SM]Hardwired movie Trailer 2009 - YouTube[/ame]

      =) then there will be no escape....

      Heh.

      That trailer didn't show it but that chip they put in ur brain or on ur spine or whatever... it transmits commercials, in halograms to you... and you cannot turn them off... you have someone advertising to you in real life basically. So a sales person in your face... every so often... an can't mute it can can't ignore it, they even do it in your dreams.

          Lerster:

          It all comes down to weather you believe you are a robot who's sole purpose is to obey commands. Your brain was put in your head, not mine or anyone elses. There is no secret internet wiFi hooked up directly to it that is like a back door for the creator so if you piss him or her off, they put the smack down onto you. All that paranoia comes from incorrect decisions and judgements happening based on how your brain is ' hardwired'. Thats the only parallel I can see in your analogy....but its a good one.

                the websites themselves isn't the issue. they already shutdown websites at will. the fact they could force our ISPs into constantly monitoring everything we do. that's what was so scary.

                but i knew this wouldn't be an issue for long. they will try again, but it would take something along the lines of "if we don't have access to information that monitors every individuals internet activity, babies will be raped and killed and blacks will become slaves again". then it might have a chance.

                  Just you wait ... HTML5 will make stuff like FireFox Flash-blocking of ads obsolete.

                  Cancelled cable in 2009 I got sick of crap TV. I use Netflix and RedBox. Go to restaurant or friend's to see major sporting event I actually care about, ironically ESPN streams certain things live on their site (some of the college football bowl games, for instance).

                  It's really sad how our government can sell out so easily. Of course they'll say they're creating jobs in the process, when they're going to kill millions of small business jobs across the country, and create a few jobs with the largest corporations.

                  Everyone will lose but the pirates. They'll just find another way around it.
                  You nailed it maybe better than I've seen anywhere describing what would happen.

                  Corporate money in politics. It is almost criminal. Corporations are looting the USA (outsourcing, free trade of goods into the country, tax havens) and writing the laws. And funding elections. I think the US democracy has been checkmated. Corporations can spend millions of dollars to bribe politicians into laws causing hundreds of billion in damage.

                  I think if SOPA passes, an encrypted peer-to-peer "dark net" will form (not a single one, tons of them like a multi-headed hydra). Maybe it is better in the long run, corporations can take their ads and shove it.

                    civil war is fought between opposing sides of civilians for control of the country. a war of the people against its own tyrannical government is a revolution.

                            true, they don't need it to see what we're doing. but they would need it if they planned on prosecuting using that information.

                            or were you making a different point?

                              I didn't know this until 5 minutes ago.

                              Google apparently in November 2010 delisted an apparently popular web site called InfoWars.com because the US government wanted it delisted for showing WikiLeaks videos. And the YouTube videos of this Wikileaks material was removed were removed.

                              Google Blacklists Prison Planet.com Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!

                              This sounds strange to say because I don't generally believe in "conspiracy theories" but the US government seems to be going for an informational power grab.

                                Pretty much....its basically wire tapping, which is illegal without a warrant I believe. Though this current ' administration ' still does what the previous administration pioneered, and listens without any legal warrants whenever it wants....all in the good name of terrorism / patriot act.

                                Civil war, it could be....because the politicians order the military and police which are like robots / zombies too. Regular citizens would need to side together, but how do you know there is not a spy in the midst of any movement? This all does remind me a lot of basic 1776 history, makes me believe we never realy beat the british, they merely appeased us into thinking we won...after all, who would surrender to dishonorble rebels that use gorilla warfare and dont fight like gentlemen? I think they still have a grudge about all that, and just pretended to lose and become our ally. Meanwhile we are their whore for free trade in the world.....would not surprise me if the government gets their money from the UK in a bind, after all, the exchange rate is always in their favor.
