1st Amendment B*****s

Read it and learn it

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.

Note: the b*****s part is aimed at progressive leftists who freak out daily. Let’s get to it. Phil Robertson has the all rights in the world to say what he wills. I personally thought his comments were a little edgy, but they weren’t bad and I thought his clarification was more than satisfying enough.I could care less ultimately what somebody says or does so long they aren’t actually harming anybody. I could be disgusted by what they say or do, but I will defend their right to do so.

Whether it’s Westboro Baptist Church spewing its egregious dialogue or a baker refusing to make a cake for a gay couple or leftists comparing Bush to Hitler. I’m the advocate for the individual’s rights to say or do what they want so long they don’t cause harm or damage in the process. I also think A&E had the right to terminate him even if it was premature and stupid (I do think they’ll be forced to put him back on).

I am ultimately opposed to any/all government censorship of dialogue good or bad. This type of act is or leads at least to totalitarianism so it’s important to protect everybody’s rights to expressions in speech and peaceful actions. Now while we’re on the subject of gay slurs does anyone remember Alec Baldwin? Even better question for the kooks at GLAAD what about Iran’s policy towards gays? BTW Barack Obama made a deal which makes them give up nothing in return for lifting economic sanctions. Thanks for listening.
