    If y’all want to think I’m baiting Burke just for arguments sake, then so be it. I’ll be the sacrificial match that lights a fire under his ass.

    I’m trying to get the man to draw his line in the sand and stick to it. When does freedom of speech go too far? He has never given his point of the view on the matter. Probably because I’m just some Deep South redneck in his mind. But if you are going to spew about civil liberties, don’t kid yourself and think that you won’t have to explain why.

    I think the internet has just opened Burke’s eyes to the crap. I’m trying to get him to stop his Chicken Little antics of “the sky is falling”. Stop with the copy and past stuff and make a stand for once. The sky came crashing down with a bang years ago.

    Civil liberties are not a new concept to me. I’ve been into the stuff for years. I don’t care for Hustler magazine too much, but I have much respect for what Larry Flint went through for our right to parody. Read Hustler Magazine Vs. Falwell.

    Had it not been for Larry Flint’s fight to stand for what he believed in, late night TV would not be able to make jokes about people. The man is bound to a wheel chair now for fighting for what he believes in. He was shot on his way to a courthouse. Stuck in a wheelchair, yet he stood head and shoulders above all others in battle.

    Also we have Brandenburg v. Ohio, which is where the misquoted term “you can’t shout fire! in a crowded movie theater” comes from. But the First Amendment does not grant us the right to incite a riot to cause harm to others.

    …. if speech has a "tendency" to cause sedition or lawlessness, it may constitutionally be prohibited….

    And if there is any testament to how long I’ve been into standing up to the man, I’ve been a fan of Henry Rollins for most of my life. I’ve seen him in concert with Black Flag, been to a few of his spoken word tours, and I will be seeing him again when he comes here to New Orleans this Sept. 21.

    Watch some of his “teeing off” videos.

    Burke needs to realize that until he is willing to take a stand against the man, in a clear and concise manner, that he is just as afraid of getting beaten down by the man as we poor sheep are.

    Yeah, I’m just another deep south redneck, let’s just hope that I live long enough to prove otherwise to those who think so.

    I think that a communication barrier can often make a person seem stupider than they really are. Learning to understand what people are saying is just as important as making yourself understood.

    While I see why Roundeye would want to do this.....dunno, it does look a bit on the baiting side.


    That said, it's all pretty simple. Sure this is a site on the net but it's not exactly a "public" government owned park. Your freedom of speed extends to your agreement to follow the rules set by Philip.

    Let's lock this up and Burke and Roundeye can take the discussion to PM's.

    Thanks...
