    •  Or maybe there it is all automated (none)
      and Dailykos hasn't met one of the program's criteria for filtering yet or maybe it is white listed since many soldiers already asked to be able to access it, but I guess we should throw that logic out the window since it doesn't fit the ant-liberal conspiracy theory.
      •  conspiracy theory my ass (none)
        GOP propaganda is promoted.  You've disproved nothing.  I know some guy that works at an Army base that made the mistake of discussing Grateful Dead music with a friend.  The Army base quit delivering emails involving the blacklisted accounts and told the guy 'you cannot talk about that shit here.'

        You're really trying hard to debunk the blatantly obvious here, Brady.

        In God we trust. All others must pay cash.

        •  Things that are obvious to me (none)
        • Network infrastructure and constant IP connectivity are essential for Armed forces function
        • The armed forces state plainly and in no uncertain terms that they will filter and/or block anything on their networks they deem necessary
        • As an enlistee, you have significantly LESS rights than the average citizen concerning your freedom of speech and expression ESPECIALLY while on duty
        • The military is filtering access because it is entirely legitimate for it to do so and it has an inherent need to protect the security of its networks and maximize the productivity and attention of the soldiers
