    Freedom of Expression in America

    Freedom of Expression in America.


    Freedom of Speech in America.


    No one is listening - we know this.


    But these rights: do we have them?



    More comments and bibliographies to add later.

    It's an accurate statement that our current spending will not be increasing the debt We've stopped spending money that we don't have.

    -- Jack Lew, then director of the Office of Management and Budget, in Feb. 16, 2011 testimony before the Senate Budget Committee.

    Sure, we have freedom of expression. Nobody is going to cut your head off for voicing your opinion, but you will get bitched at by somebody no matter what you say.

    I think those rights have been marginalized.

    And a Canadian has to point this out.

    Hey Iain, if we gave you Canadians the state of Washington, could we get you to take BigDyl, too?

    No, my point is that Canada already has its own hot chicks and I don't want to lose ours.

    I'm not giving up Jodi, P-funk, and the rest.

    You may think it's stupid, Iain. That's your opinion, and you're free to share it.

    A Mod (DOMS) said he would ban me if he could. Why? I don't know.

    Maybe disagrees with some of my opinions. Therefore, ban people.

    I sent him a PM asking for an explanation. So far, he has not not responded.


    Also, the American media is heavily, heavily, censored.

    The First Post: Envoy fiasco as monks are massacred

    ...Troops supported by paramilitary thugs launched a pre-dawn raid on the monastery on Sunday, dragging 200 monks from their beds, most of them young novices, lining them up against a wall and smashing their skulls...

    here's what your opinion gets you elsewhere

    you don't get what you wish for ~ you get what you work for

    Just a guess, but it probably has something to do with you celebrating the death of American Soldiers when they are killed by foreign fighters in Iraq. Not sure though...

    You add shit to this site. You're an OC troll and that's all.

    I hated you before I became a mod. I still hate you now that I'm a mod. I can't stand your very presence. However, like I've said twice before, I have rules to follow, which prevents me from banning you outright. So I'll just wait until you give me a valid reason, and then your ass is gone.

    In the meantime, I'll just point out for the crowd how much you suck as a person.

    And you're comparing my desire to ban you from an Internet forum to government oppression of free speech?

    You really are a fucking moron.

    I'm not a troll. I've been on this board for almost 4 years. I back up my opinions with links and stats, when it's appropriate. That is not trolling. You just tell people to "f*ck off." Now that, is trolling, DOMS.

    Serious question: why would you ban me? What specific reason or reasons.

    So I'll just wait until you give me a valid reason, and then your ass is gone.
    That's not what Modding is about. You have to remove your modding from your personal opinions. Keep waiting for a "valid reason," DOMS. Keep waiting.

    The fact that you made this statement shows you should not be a moderator.

    In the meantime, I'll just point out for the crowd how much you suck as a person.
    You've never met me. I've never met you. We both, cannot make personal judgments about each other. DOMS, it's called....the internet.

    I did not say that it was exclusively the "government."

    Now calling a poster a "moron."


    Now thats, trolling.

    Can't make judgments? Didn't you just judge me unfit to be a mod? Keep talking, every post you makes shows what a moron you are.

    I'll repeat my offer that I just posted elsewhere.

    I won't respond to your posts, and you don't respond to mine.

    I am not dodging. Not at all. I am just bored with personal put-downs.

    I won't respond your posts, if you don't respond to mine. That why there is no fighting. I think it's a good idea, IMO.
