There are now four idiots on the Supreme Court who have convinced themselves

"that speech is a sort of public good held in a collective trust, to be limited or banned whenever the majority feels that the speech in question might not be being used in furtherance of the proper ends."
Or in other words, that we have the right to free speech so long as it pleases the state. Bottom lyin': the founders were way ahead of their time, in that they created a totalitarian state before Marx, Hitler, and Stalin were even born.) One Cʘsmos: Faithlessness Renders All Things Impossible

Your Say

This is only an example of that which is happening to every page of the Constitution. The Founding Fathers were able to predict, to project what would happen to the form of government they were proposing. They built in a clear separation of the three factions: judicial, executive, legislative. Those of us born before JFK was in office, we were taught that in school — Civics class IIRC. I reckon the powers that are now in control figure if they strike it from the textbooks and curricula it goes away. It doesn't go away, it stays to bite us on the ass.

"Things fall apart; the center cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity." — William Butler Yeats, “The Second Coming.”

In the same vein, there is a left-droid jorno-lister who affects to believe it is right, good, and meet that those who hold and express heterodox opinions on CAGW be arrested and jailed. He persuades me that it should be similarly right, good, and meet to summarily execute those who present themselves as threats to civil liberty.

Up against the wall.
