Death Penalty for BLOGGING?

If the rational world needed another reason to look down their noses at the soon to be ill-fated Iranian government, the Iranian Parliament has just passed a new law stating that "online crimes" - such as blogging about the promotion of corruption, prostitution, and rejecting Islam - are now punishable by death.

Forget that the Iranian Parliament is guilty of funding the corruption of a generation, by airing children's shows that promote suicide bombing as a means to an (un)holy end for the sake of defending their Islamic Republic. Forget that they are responsible for terror training funding throughout the world. And forget that they are the epitome of corruption of civilized society... But let one blogger attempt to speak out against that corruption, and the state will have their heads (literally).

This is a direct affront to the US Constitution's Bill of Rights' 1st amendment:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The restriction of the individual to express themselves through religion or speech restricts the fundamental laws of nature regarding freedom.

I applaud the Iranian Parliament's decision. If the job of the US was ever to get simpler (that is to push for a revolution against Tyrannical Control over their citizens), they are helping by hammering the point home - Iranians are not free. Iranians do not live in a free society. Iranians should live in fear of their government, who now have the power to take your life at their discretion.

Now, feel free to enjoy some uplifting blogging - the entries of a madman:
