    Obviously, Mr Obama is starting to take away our First Amendment rights.

    Amazing! For the last 8 years I saw as bad if not worse about Bush and at least to my knowledge, I never heard about anything like this happening. Maybe it did and I missed it but I think the OKC cops way over reacted on this deal! I'm not a bumper sticker person anyway except in my caving days I had a "Cavers Do It Vertically" on my Powerwagon, but if anything, this bumper sticker in question makes me wonder about the person's level of education and even ability to hold down a reasonablly good job!

    Also I'm not so sure about the knee jerk reaction of claiming Obama is out to destroy freedom of speech. My guess is Secret Service got involved because they were notified by OKC police and they are required to check out all reports, even the stupid ones.

    If Obama did send the Secret Service to "get that guy" it sure flies in the face of this as it relates to freedom of speech and expression.

    BTW: As a side note to the Fairness Doctrine and Henry Waxman, Ron Paul's WarRoom issued this 2 days ago concerning this very issue. Check out the 2 links in the brief for sure.

    For now, in the case of the Fairness Doctrine Obama seems publically committed to freedom and open access. If Waxman persists as many believe he will, (and I was counting on this overreach and he came through in flying colors, they always do) look for liberals in large numbers, especially those with large internet presence to also jump on the opposition train to fight Waxman back. If Obama was smart, he'd slam Waxman down hard in the public space because I think it would score big for him. Whether he feels comfortable doing that is another matter! Also Waxman is already doing the infamous Washington 2 step as he knows this deal could easily go nuclear and that's the last thing democrats want right now.

    Keep you eyes and ears open on this one folks as FCC Head McDowell pointed out, this internet backdoor effort won't come through the front door under the name of the Fairness Doctrine!

    Best way to confront evil and even a pretense to evil is to blast it with the light of day.

    I was thinking exactly that when the big uproar arose about the political cartoon in the Washington Post.
    There were a lot uglier cartoons about President Bush, but that was OK.

    He was obviously threatening the President. He should be in GITMO...

    And all those libs that displayed " impeach W ", were not considered as threats ?
    How about " a town in Texas is missing an idiot ",or " 01-20-09 Bush's last day" ?

    Mmmmm! Now where have I seen this attitude before? It reminds me of something, something from the past. It just has this ring of history to it, let me see, it's coming to mind. Zeig something or another.

    I'll get back to ya, I'm sure it'll come to mind!

    Ah yes, I knew it would come to me!

    Read the entire piece (I dare you) at the link below.

    RIP Sam, you are missed!

    Yes, we are way beyond bumper stickers now and yes Toto, we ain't in Kansas anymore!

    Jagger's idea of proper society and gov't to citizen relations. I don't think I have to tell you which is gov't and which is the citizen ie you!
