I think you answered your own question – the gov was not involved in either of these free speech events. Both sides are entitled to free speech and both sides exerted that right.

THe WBC rights were not curtailed. As you said, we are not required to listen to someone elses “free speech”
 May 27, 2015 at 2:31pm
They are not keeping the WBC from exercising their free speech – they are only protecting others from having to be a part of that “free speech”, especially during a difficult time. Nothing physical was done to stop them from their free speech. If it is done to free speech you agree with, gather more people, make sure your speech is seen. WBC is so small they should not be allowed to overtake the sane voices of others.
The constitution doesn't say "freedom from speech" it says "freedom of speech." Just like it doesn't say freedom FROM religion, it says freedom OF religion.
What you are advocating is very dangerous. It means we are free FROM speech we don't like.
It's like saying "a person can't post their thoughts on a blog because we disagree with them... they can type them on their computer, but not post them online where people can read them."

Good job. I supposed Al and the DOJ were right there holding sheets with the counter protestors since they must detest not only WBC but the killing a protector of our laws and freedom.

Some female comedian on the left joked about fondling her young sister and the other stupid leftists thought it was hilarious. No apology, not even an indication that anyone thought it was wrong. They attack the Duggars because they represent living with high morals and that belittles the left who want no morality to be part of our life. Duggars have always said they are not perfect, they do not expect others to live their lifestyle, turn to God to help with problems and do not expect society or the gov to take care of them. What does it matter to anyone if this show is on???? If you do not want to watch it, I trust there are other shows you can watch. The left just wants to tell US what we can and can not watch. Christians should start petitions to stop Kardashians and housewives and other trashy TV. The left things those shows are great.

O is so arrogant – Congress does not agree with him so they are wrong, court does not agree with him they are wrong, we, the people do not agree with him so we are wrong. He thinks he is the only person on earth that is RIGHT. Typical leftist – if you do not believe like they do you are – fill in the blank – wrong, racist, sexist, stupid, uneducated, ignorant, fat, ugly. They can never admit that maybe their ideas are WRONG
 May 26, 2015 at 1:52pm
um, you make no sense, plavelle. Of course it is staged – they had to arrange to get together since that is no t part of the pre ceremony normally. You actually think that they are talking about what to have for dinner in this picture?? You are nuts and should be thank ful there are still some of us that will ask for the lord’s blessing – maybe you will need those prayers some day.

Instead of exchanging a deserter for known terrorists, O should be trading peaceful Christians for the radical muslims in our country. Instead, he is planning to import more muslims from radical countries – the ones that had to flee or get beheaded. These muslims have terrorist beliefs, multiple wives, belief in sharia law, little education and skills. We should just sign and hand over ALL our paycheck to the gov so they can continue redistributing it while taking 50% to support the bloated gov.

Years ago a pitcher from Puerto rico was called up. He spoke limited english and got on 285 ( a circle around Atlanta) and did not know when to get off to get to the stadium. He stopped at several gas stations and told them he was the starting pitcher for the Braves and needed directions. For obvious reasons, they laughed at him and he just kept driving around and around. He missed his scheduled start.

Unfortunately, there is a huge number of leftist companies or non profits that will gobble up her accusations and antics. No private, for profit company would come near her. Too bad she will not have to pay for her unfounded accusations and the ruining of a young man’s life. Would be good to check back in 10 years and see what her personal life is like. Wouldn’t it be fun to show her children pictures of her college graduation?

The outcome has nothing to do with skin color of either the police or the motorist. The motorist showed respect to the police and likewise the police responded with respect. Someone needs to tell the thugs – black, white, pink – that they need to respect the police when they encounter them and they will most likely be treated the same way. When we were younger the schools and families and churches taught children that police were owed our respect. Time to go back to those days and the bad eggs in the police dept will be weeded out.

mojo. That was pretty much my thoughts – someone that only sees themselves as capable of providing knowledge, is not very “intelligent”. Intelligent people gather information and knowledge from all sources, even those that have different views than they do.

Who will be the first to go to a Muslim bakery and demand a cake with mo on it and say islam is evil.
 May 15, 2015 at 7:51am
So true yet O just railed against the Christian religion because they do not care about the poor. He thinks Christians should ignore the fact that millions of babies are being killed every year so they can concentrate on getting out the “message” that the poor are suffering. What he does not consider is that Christians can actually try to protect babies from abortion while also actually HELPING the poor, not just talking about it.

I used to work doing job placement for welfare recipients. While the problem is very complicated and has many reasons, it was amazing to hear people threaten to call the police if I harassed them about getting a job one more time. Of course, I continued to harass them and eventually they got a job. Most were very happy once they got off the gov dole but it was a struggle to make them take that step. I am obnoxious about it while most workers just take the easy road and pretend there are no jobs for poor people. Our society has accepted failure and somehow made it a badge of honor

We should be concerned about who “sneaks” into our country whether they be human or dogs.
btw, Hawaii requires a quarantine period (or they have in the past). Many countries require it and you are in big trouble if you break the quarantine laws.
May 12, 2015 at 2:03pm
The thing you and I should be concerned about is not throwing O under the bus but showing the electorate, especially the low info voters, that this is the DEM party , not just a bad apple named O.

Time for the principle to be fired – not only for changing grades but for letting a long term sub stay on the job when obviously they could not manage the classroom. The principle should have been involved in this classroom from day one and known what the sub was doing. Changing the grades after they were submitted was too late. The students probably did not learn what they were supposed to learn in that class and that is shameful and the parents should ask for his job.

Yes, how dare the media cover a story that shows the corruption in the schools especially when those schools are run by liberals on the left. The durn media did the same thing in Atlanta and now look what happened – some teachers lost their jobs. If they had just turned the other way, Atlanta would still have been considered the shining light of education reform. So what if a few thousand students did not get an education – they could always depend on that same gov to support them or at least let them loot to support themselves. So what if capable, honest teachers left the Atlanta schools in droves because they refused to cheat leaving only the cheaters who could not teach but could easily change grades. So what if they destroyed lives not only of the directly affected students but everyone in the system including teachers.

Great post. The black leadership has missed (or chosen not to take) a great opportunity to LEAD the community by presenting facts they need – stay out of trouble, respect the police and other authority, get an education, raise your kids and low and behold, the cops will probably not beat you. Break the law, act like a thug and guess what – the cops and others will treat you like a thug. Instead, our black leaders – including our most powerful leader Obama – continue to blame black problems on some one else, some other problem, usually a whitey. I don’t think it is a coincidence.
btw, do you think there is a relationship to all the free Obamaphones given out and now the use of social media to organize these riots/
