Canadian blogger slapped by Twitter for violating Pakistani law

In 1989, former President George H.W. Bush said that “… the day of the dictator is over.”  Sadly, it’s not.  Dictators like Saddam Hussein and Adolf Hitler are gone, only to be replaced by another set of dictators, with far more power and absolutely no accountability.
