Honing My Rage

When I thought I couldn't become any more enraged by what extremists are doing to my country and Constitution, they're now going after the first Amendment and political speech on the Internet. First it was reported (without quotation marks) that George Tenet says:
Access to networks like the World Wide Web might need to be limited to those who can show they take security seriously.
What in the world does that mean? And today, the SCLM lies about Atrios and then informs us all that:
Beginning next year, the F.E.C. will institute new rules on the restricted uses of the Internet as it relates to political speech.
The first Amendment/Internet battle was been fought previously (anyone remember EFF's Blue Ribbon campaign?) - it's a shame that people continue to fail to understand what freedom and free speech actually mean.

I think I'm ready to be as angry as you are, J, but help me out here - what is the SCLM?
