In Constant Amazement
Hell, I can even understand the government blocking this blog.
But can anyone explain to me what possible justification there is to block access to the U.S. Social Security Administration? Is there something somehow subversive going on at the SSA? Is passing out checks to retirees really a front for a huge covert ops/black helicopter conspiracy to take over the world?Even in these days of Libby, Rove, Rumsfield and Cheney, I’d have to say that’s a bit paranoid. For crying out loud, there’s probably more objectionable content on the White House site , and that’s no blocked.
On the other hand, this could be the U.S. government blocking access. I know, for example, that any attempt to access .mil domains in the U.S. from China is blocked at one end or the other, and my money would be on that blockage occurring on the Pentagon end of the tube.
This is what it is like to be a web surfer in China. For whatever reason, both the Chinese and the Americans want to limit what we see.
