SF Wants to Regulate Bloggers

It's not just the Feds. Found via Mad Ogre:

Just when you thought the Federal Election Commission had it out for the blogosphere, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors took it up a notch and announced yesterday that it will soon vote on a city ordinance that would require local bloggers to register with the city Ethics Commission and report all blog-related costs that exceed $1,000 in the aggregate.

Tar. Feathers. Rope. Some assembly required.

First restriction : 'Don't talk about politics'.
(Next up: 'Don't talk about religion'. (third: 'Don't talk') )

This is the strangest thing. Whatever happened to freedom of speech? Whatever happened to "land of the free"? It seems like all western societies are building up a "big brother" type of setup to regulate its citizens. Before we know it "1984" will be upon us.
