It was hard to go online on Wednesday without being reminded of the dangers of censorship and the fears that this legislation could lead to massive censorship.
Theoriesofconspiracy.com lists 355 corporations and organizations backing the legislation, including major broadcast corporations, major sports leagues, pharmaceutical companies and an array of other organizations. The above photo appears on the organization’s webpage.

I’ve set up this page in hopes of introducing myself to people in North Carolina who don’t know me. I’ll be posting info here, mostly about North Carolina.
I recently left a position in which I covered North Carolina politics and state government. If you want to read more about that, please go the Barry’s bio page on this web page.
Now I’m available to do freelance articles. I can do state government and political articles, along with travel and sports stories. If you want to contact me, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 919-348-9119.
I hope to hear from you soon.
