Check out this US governmenet white house blog. They are requesting that people dob in bloggers or web journalists:
“There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.”
It’s so depressing to be witnessing the increase in US government atrocities against individual rights.
The US used to be the example of capitalism and prosperity for the rest of the world.
But the Fed and US government has criminally harmed its citizens by causing the housing bubble, causing a recession and then prolonging it with “stimulus” packages, creating a huge amount of debt, and they are implementing higher levels of human life destroying socialism and facism every day.
So a big F#ck you to the US government.
Personally I think it would be fantastic to see this email spam bombed or flooded with totally unrelated web addresses. That would send the white house the message they deserve.

Update 2, 7/8/09:
This is a comment excerpted from another blog that I thought was absolutely brilliant:
“To: The Department of Agitation and Propaganda
I wish to report an agency that is spreading disinformation that, based upon your clear and precise criteria, one could only describe as “fishy”. This agency is attempting to spread the lie that the President’s health care proposal does not represent a complete takeover of the American health care system. They are attempting to obfuscate the fact that such a government takeover represents a profound and immoral violation of an individual’s right to voluntarily contract for services and will lead to disaster in practice as it transforms the last vestiges of a free and competitive marketplace into a cross between public schooling, the DMV, and the IRS.
Furthermore, this agency appears to be making an effort to abrogate the inalienable right to free speech by creating and encouraging a government sponsored spy program to compile information on its critics.
This agency goes by the name of whiteshouse.gov, and I urge you to stop them before it is too late.”
Update 3, 7/8/09:
I have just dobbed myself in to the Whitehouse.
And thanks to a blogger I have learned that “after Tianenmen Square massacre, the Chinese government opened a tip line for people to report those who had been involved in the protests.”
Apparently, “so many ordinary Chinese citizens called in reporting fake tips, reporting themselves, etc. that the government couldn’t sort out the “real” tips, and the line was useless.”
Update 4, 7/8/09:
OK this letter was so brilliant I had to publish it here:
Dear Great Leader,
I am proud to report that I, a free individual acting alone, am firmly opposed to your attempts to enslave us all under the guise of healthcare “reform.” I am one of your subversive elements attempting to spread truth in the face of your official government deception.
Why, you ask? Because I know that in order to live and prosper, a man must be free to exercise his reason in making his own choices to live his life. I am aware that rational thought ends where the gun begins and that you are currently attempting to use the coercive power of government to remove my ability to choose, not only how I manage my own health, but what type of car I by and even how I manage credit risk.
I realize that your administration’s mandated Newspeak requires the slander and disinformation you and your functionaries are currently engaged in, but am confident you know that I, and those like me, am speaking the truth. I am confident that you know your programs are little more than window dressing for government control of our lives.
Thus, I am faced with a choice. I can submit willingly and become the unthinking ward of the state that you fancy, or I can speak out and try to remind the world that man should be free and should do everything possible to convince his representatives in the Congress to oppose the continued slide of our once great nation into totalitarian.
I may be “fishy” by your definition, but you have made me so by making misinformation and lies the standard of truth.
I may be “subversive,” but you have made me so, by turning American values upside down and making an enemy of liberty.
Facts are stubborn things, and however hard your administration tries to suppress them and demonize people like me, they will continue to turn up in inconvenient places. Either you can face them now, and watch your plans unravel, or you will be forced to face them when your programs have destroyed the moral and economic fabric off the United States.
Truth be told, I have an advantage. My cause is liberty and I feel no need to hide in the shadows of falsehoods and bullying that you employ. So as per your request, I am reporting myself to your thought police. With this report, I provide a promise: I will not sanction your evil and I will not stop speaking the truth.
