The Sacredness of Free Speech
Last night I gave Edward a hard time for justifying the attacks on free speech by the Obama administration symbolized best by the writer of the script of "Innocence of Muslims" being picked up in the middle of night for a "voluntary" interview concerning possible parole violations. Edward conflated the making of the video with yelling "Fire!" in a theater claiming, apparently not being able to discern between planned violence and panic due the fear of burning to death, the outcome is the same. But, I find apologists for acts of censure and intimidation in order to smother free speech offensive and dangerous. Offensive because it goes against my strongly held belief system, more strongly held than my religious beliefs, more sacred. Dangerous because apologies and justifications enable tyrants to exercise ever more tyranny.
Free speech is sacred. Throughout history the one thing that could get you beheaded or imprisoned as quickly as trying to kill the king is speaking your mind when your mind doesn't fit the accepted version of things.Read more »

Paradoxical Bumper Stickers
Seen and photographed (that's the hard part) in Lexington, KY and Cincinnati, OH this past week.
Coexist, but as a lesser being if you're a man. Amazing how much hatred lives in the hearts of feminists.
This guy appeared to be a fifty something businessman. I wonder if he thinks leaving over $16,000,000,000,000 in debt to our children and grandchildren is "voting for Kids?" Maybe he means he's voting for kids to pay off his debt. I thought about giving this guy the benefit of the doubt since the Obama sticker says '08. But, if he'd changed his mind the bumper sticker would be gone.
Why Are They Attacking Us? Sex, Lies and Videotape
How many of us believe the attacks on our embassies were caused by some third rate youtube video? All rubes and tools raise your hands. Not even Aljeezara believes that in the case of the attacks in Libya
"I think this was al-Qaeda," President Mohamed al-Magarief told Al Jazeera's Hoda Abdel-Hamid on Friday, in his first interview with foreign media since the violence three days earlier.
"If you take into account the weapons used like RPGs and other heavy weapons, it proves that it was pre-planned," he said. "It's a dirty act of revenge that has nothing to do with religion."

His comments to Al Jazeera marked the first time his government has openly attributed acts of violence to religious extremists.
Frankly, anyone who believes any of these attacks were motivated by the is a fool or a collaborator.Read more »

DNC Delegate Wants to Kill Mitt Romney
Full video at The Blaze
I'm not sure what it says when little old ladies want to kill someone. It's almost comical.
To be fair, a racist clinger from North Carolina has been arrested after tweeting threats to kill Obama
. Among other tweets, he tweeted, "Ima hit president Obama with that Lee Harvey Oswald swag."
It's a bizarre world we live in.
