Recently, it's been noted that White House employees who are moderating this forum about "transparency" have begun deleting comments and threads that do not shine favorably on our idiot-in-chief, according to several news accounts. This is of course par for the course for any fascist, from Benito Mussolini to Stalin, to Castro, to Chavez, to Hu Jintao, Pol Pot, and Kim Jong Il.
This is doing nothing to further open government if we can't use this site as intended. It is absolutely pathetic that we can't have an open discussion of ideas without censorship. If people do not agree, that is what the discussion area below the idea is for. We can't even have talk of open government on a website specifically built to further the cause of it. Wow.
