HR 5175 Obama Bill to Silence Political Opponents, SEIU would be ...
If you run a blog you had better take notice. Obama will require you to file forms with all your members names if you mention public officials within 60 days of an election. Pro Obama groups like the SEIU would be exempt. Fresh from his efforts to seize government control of the health services sector (ObamaCare) and the financial markets (“finance reform”), Barack Obama has a new priority: silence his political opposition.

So he is pushing the Orwellian ... market research, surveys and trends

Over time, crises have gotten more severe because many ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
