08/05/09 - A New Jersey Reader Predicts Little Democratic Appetite For Amnesty Fight After The Obamacare Dust Up

From:  Mark Sparks (e-mail him)

Re: Ellison Lodge`s Column: David Keene And The American Union Scandal: Before FedEx There Was Immigration

It seems no good deed goes unpunished.

Just after your column exposing the lobbying efforts of UPS to impose more onerous regulations on Fedex, I discovered that the FedEx Office locations in northern Virginia that I use to access the Internet and VDARE.COM have blocked your site and labeled it "extremist".

Interestingly, I could log onto American Patrol. As a cautionary measure, I called Glenn Spencer to alert him that his webpage might be the next one taken down.

So far, I have found the block at two FedEx/Kinkos stores so far. If VDARE`s articles are available in an e-mail newsletter format, I would like to sign up.

Sparks, a transplanted Californian, works in the technology sector. He writes that he has watched in disbelief as the illegal alien problem has metastasized from an indulgence given to California farmers to a major national problem.

Peter Brimelow comments: Censorware is a continuing problem for us, and we are always grateful to readers who report it—the corporate suppliers usually back off when threatened by our lawyers. (Reader Sparks tells us FedEx now seems to have relented). See VDARE.com Censored by Corporate Software  and Internet Filters—Private Sector First Amendment Workaround, or Gov`t Censorship In Disguise? by James Fulford for a discussion of this, with notes on how to deal with these filters.
