Free Speech?

It's become so obvious, few even expend the energy to argue the point...
Our media leans dramatically to the left. Dan Rather's lies were accepted at face value until Charles Johnson exposed them, thank God.

Obama's thugs show up at radio stations to threaten those that opposed him.

Black Panthers with night sticks "maintain order" in front of polling booths.

Now there's this.
At what point do we start considering a conspiracy?
(Just a joke folks... I think.)

If you're having trouble with the link above, try this one.

I loved that... it defines Irony better than anything I've ever seen. Saw somewhere that Amazon said that they would never do something like this again... for the second time.

I couldn't access your link but I did find an article about it elsewhere. It included the following explanation from Amazon:

These books were added to our catalog using our self-service platform by a third-party who did not have the rights to the books. When we were notified of this by the rights holder, we removed the illegal copies from our systems and from customers' devices, and refunded customers. We are changing our systems so that in the future we will not remove books from customers' devices in these circumstances.

However, it's kinda chilling that Amazon can reach out to something you own and delete content you've paid for, regardless of the reason.

That's pretty much the explanation at the link too, CJ. But isn't it interesting that in today's political climate, with all the "some animals are MORE EQUAL than others" quote being used by Obama critics, those particular books would be censor....
Ahem, removed from the kindle inventory?!!
