Freedom of expression. It's not a difficult concept.
Basically, every human being has the right to speak his mind without fear of government punishment or penalty.
Accepted, reasonable restrictions on speech are generally very loose, like no yelling "fire" in a crowded auditorium and no speech that is genuinely disruptive like standing up and reciting the Communist Manifesto while the teacher is trying to conduct class.
Yet somehow, school officials across this land often seem to forget Read more [...]
Edward Snowden released new documents that allegedly show the NSA was planning on hijacking app stores in order to get spyware into phones.
Edward Snowden is still releasing information!
In this case, he has shown how the NSA was hoping to infiltrate Android phones.
From The Week: “NSA planned to hijack app stores to spy on users.”
On the heels of Sen. Rand Paul's 10-hour semi-filibuster to protest the Patriot Act and National Security Agency (NSA) mass surveillance, The Intercept Read more [...]
It isn’t about equal treatment; it is about thoughtcrime.
A Lesbian couple came to a jeweler in Canada and ordered engagement rings. He agreed to the job, and took their deposit.
Then the Lesbian couple found out that the jeweler didn’t belive in homosexual marriage. So they demanded special treatment!
From CBC News:
White and Renouf visited the store and later gave specifications and a price range for potential rings.
"They were great to work with. They seemed to have no issues. Read more [...]
The managing editor for the National Review has published a long article arguing for same sex "marriage."
I should have known that, with the onset of real persecution and the use of civil rights legislation against Christians, the National Review would not hesitate to jump ship and try to redefine conservatism as pro-same-sex “marriage.”
Jason Steorts writes the sustained attack on natural society: “An Equal Chance at Love: Why We Should Recognize Same-Sex Marriage.”
Steorts writes Read more [...]
Homosexual men leading the Boy Scouts should work as well as giving Robert Gates authority over a government agency.
We should give Robert Gates a new title: Secretary of Surrender.
Fresh from overseeing a grand social experiment at the CIA, and another which has devastated morale—and led huge numbers of top officers to retire—in the United States Military, Robert Gates now seeks to preside over the demise of yet another historic social institution in America: The Boy Scouts.

So how much other science fraud is being used by our media to scare us into submission to Leftist goals?
You may remember last year about how rapidly people were changing their minds, and were likely to keep changing their minds, about “gay marriage.” Here are a couple of headlines to jog your memory: “Scientists Report Gay People Are The Best At Changing Minds On Marriage Equality” from Buzzfeed and “A 20-Minute Chat With a Gay Person Made People Much More Supportive of Gay Marriage” Read more [...]
A sick son on the honor role who missed “too many” days of school gets a mother shackled by police.
Our schools are beachheads for the state to launch totalitarian invasions. When you see a mother shackled, you are witnessing the state claim that this person is a dangerous criminal. No “rhetoric” about “procedure” can change or soften that fact.
Giles is facing charges because her son missed more days of school than the school “allows.” According to her, the uneducated delinquent Read more [...]
The reason we get so many candidates is because they can personally profit from running even if their candidacy hurts the race.
The first question I ask myself when I hear of some relatively obscure candidate running is: “What does he know that I don’t know that makes him run?”
I always assume that someone has done some numbers-crunching and demographic prognosticating that shows a reasonable chance that the candidate can affect the race or, if others take each other out, leave him as Read more [...]
I think this headline from the Washington Post is interesting: “Clinton is banking on the Obama coalition to win.” It is interesting because the Obama and Clinton wings of the party don’t seem to like each other at all. However, the “coalition” refers to the demographic voting bloc rather than political alliances.
Hillary Rodham Clinton is running as the most liberal Democratic presidential front-runner in decades, with positions on issues from gay marriage to immigration that would, in Read more [...]
Jay Z and Beyoncé bankrolled protesters in Baltimore and Ferguson with tens of thousands of dollars in bail money, a writer and social activist close to both of them claimed.
“I can say I’ve personally helped facilitate donations they’ve given to protesters directly and that they never ask for anything in return, especially publicity,” author Dream Hampton told the Daily News in an email.
In my former life I was a big fan of pop culture. It consumed me. So hearing that Jay Z Read more [...]
Why were banksters fined when the penalty was so tiny compared to the rewards? Why bother?
Bloomberg News reports, “Six Banks Pay $5.8 Billion, Five Guilty of Market Rigging.”
Six of the world’s biggest banks will pay $5.8 billion and five of them agreed to plead guilty to charges tied to a currency-rigging probe as they seek to wind down almost half a decade of enforcement actions.
I could write an entire book on this cruel joke, but no one would read it, so allow me to summarize three Read more [...]
