No more first amendment

I don't know what to say about this reuters story.

Only approved television programming is allowed? What does terrorism mean when we label a political party in a country that is an ally and which forms a part of their democratic government can't offer television programming in this country?

Praise God if you love freedom brother.

I think you read the article wrong bro. He was broadcasting, and it looks like sponsering/supporting, Hizbollah, not Israel. Israel is our ally, not Hizbollah. What he was doing was supporting terrorists. I'm pretty sure without asking where you stand politically, but I'd be a little more careful before jumping to the same ol' "there taking away our rights" B/S without any accurate research for such a statement.

Lebanon is our ally. Isreal attacked the USS Liberty.

Hezbolah is a legitimate political party in Lebanon, an ally.

We in the US have a democracy where we divide power geographically. Lebanon is a democracy where they divide power by political affliation.

Until Ike nationalized the national guard in the early days of the civil rights movement we had state governments who had military arms that they could use independenlty of the national government.

Lebanon allows their political divisions to exersice independent military action, just like we allowed states to do until fairly recently.

Do we approve of democracy or not?

I think it's something we need to make up our mind about.

I don't think we need laws that limit the broadcasting of messages that our government doesn't approve of. I think Nazis should be allowed to march on Skokie, I think Oral Roberts should be allowed to heal the sick, and I think this clown should be allowed to broadcast whatever TV shows he wants.

Personally my political stand is on the side of freedom for people and restraint of the government.

Did you read this one?

Now it's illegal to have t-shirts printed in languages that some specific cop can't read?
