FIRST THERE WAS THE ARAB SPRING. IS IT TIME FOR THE AMERICAN SPRING?

 

It has become a FELONY for Americans to protest a politician if the Secret Service is around. In other words, if you protest you go to jail free.

I wrote a column about a week ago entitled “The First Amendment Has Been Murdered” and there is no other word for it, as free speech is not free if the government insulates itself to the point where they can’t or won’t hear us.

 

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

 

I liken the country in its present condition, to a giant pressure cooker which is about ready to blow, but the crowd in Washington, are much like the Aristocrats of the French Revolution, oblivious to the seething anger and resentment surrounding them, attending social functions while Marie Antoinette made stupid remarks like “What no bread, let them eat cake”, which as we know she paid for with her head.

The ObamaCare Argument DOA – The Third and Final Day

The conservative justices were obviously concerned that if they left parts of the law in place, the votes would not be present in Congress to fix it. From the “Louisiana Purchase” to the “Cornhusker Kickback,”so many “venal” deals (as Justice Scalia described at least one of them) were struck to get the votes needed for final passage, “legislative inertia” would prevent remedying any problems with the law.
