Quite a bit on the long side, but brimming with warnings:
The necessity of reciprocal checks in the exercise of political power, by dividing and distributing it into different depositaries, and constituting each the guardian of the public weal against invasions by the others, has been evinced by experiments ancient and modern; some of them in our country and under our own eyes. To preserve them must be as necessary as to institute them. If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed. The precedent must always greatly overbalance in permanent evil any partial or transient benefit, which the use can at any time yield.
Speaking of farewell addresses, Eisenhower’s is most notable:

Thank Dubya for this bit of Constitution burning, but of course it’s Obama’s Justice (sic) Department that’s twisting the law to criminalize just about everything.
Prosecutors are clutching to one section of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which details severe penalties for“destroying, mutilating, concealing, falsifying records, documents, or tangible objects” with intent to impede or stall a federal investigation.

The battle over Google’s selective censorship continues. It seeks to neuter news content so that everything must essentially be suitable for sheltered children, or else it can freeze advertising revenue. This chilling effect has been making the news lately, beginning with the situation at Antiwar.com over 10 year old Abu Ghraib abuse photos.
Google’s spokesmouth literally said this:
“A good rule of thumb is if it would be okay for a child in any region of the world to see that image, it’s acceptable.”
They are now on a Jihad to cut off advertising to any sites that don’t fall into that category… unless they’re big multinationals methinks.
Now ponder this:
Especially since it seems that once the process gets over to the “human review,” things get much more subjective. [Antiwar’s] Garris says Antiwar.com was reinstated after he got in touch by e-mail with AdSense public relations. But then AdSense came back and said the deal was off because of a May 2014 Antiwar story that featured an Associated Press photo showing a pile of dead people allegedly killed by Ukrainian government soldiers.
