    The constitutional right of free speech is defined in the First Amendment, as follows (emphasis added):

    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.
    So let us say, for the sake of argument, that Facebook decides any criticism of Mr Trump will be immediately deleted. How exactly does this violate your constitutional rights? Please be specific. Remember that no one is requiring that you use Facebook, and there will be plenty of other places on the internet where you can criticize him as much as you please, or you could start your own.

Rushing truly has friends in high places and possesses some real strengths.
    And Roger Taney became Chief Justice. P on him and especially on his friends in high places.
    Trust me to defend the Constitution just as soon as I'm sure you're going to vote for me again.

    It’s like this, something is going on.

    18. "I can tell you they discriminate against me."

    The President of the United States, without citing any evidence, claiming that the big technology companies are biased against him. Sure!

    19. "You know, people talk about collusion. The real conclusion is between the Democrats and these companies."

    Wait, wait. I thought the real collusion was between Democrats and the Russians? Is this collusion even more real?



    24. "Well, there's something going on."

    This conspiratorial answer from Trump is in response to this question: "Mr. President, the treatment of you, set aside with Google and Facebook, just in terms of market size and market dominance, do you think that there is a monopoly antitrust problems with those big companies?" What, specifically, is Trump talking about "going on?" Does he even know?

    When Google and Facebook become public utilities, call me.

    Until then, it seems to me that all you have is fear of losing your white, male, 'christian' privilege.


    This is always how it goes down.

    There may be a few radicals out there that want to install an oppressive brown/female/male/transgender/queer/liberal/atheist oligarchy to replace the oppression they themselves have experienced, but mainly, folks just want a voice. A voice that won't be strangled because it comes from someone not white, male and 'christian'.

    first you'll have to get to to acknowledge that white, male, christian privilege exists. can't lose what isn't real.

    I do agree.

    Your thinking that the First Amendment both authorizes someone like Rushing to establish 'christianity' as a foundation of law, AND protects the speech of anyone from any agency other than the US Government is certainly an unparalleled idiocy, and your clinging to the idea that there's no such thing as white privilege checks the buffoonery box perfectly.

    I'm sure you're proud.

    I’m sure many residents of Germany, Chile, and Spain didn’t think it could happen in their respective countries either. Many Americans likely believe that sort of thing couldn’t possibly happen in 2019.
    We are seeing the beginnings of it right now. Once it progresses beyond a certain point the police and the military will side with the extremists. They always have, it’s what they are programmed to do.
    It needs to be stopped BEFORE it gets to the tipping point, and the way to do that is to vote.

    You bloody hypocrite. I essentially said the same thing and you, as well as other's, about had a cow. What changed? Oh, I see, you were just trying to make hay where there was none. Says a lot about you. Biting my effing tongue right now . . .
    In the US this perverted idea of “blood and soil” over “constitutional principles” is the most radical and anti-democratic and anti-Conservative idea I have heard in my lifetime.

    You know, I have been railing against these bursteds since I was 14 years old.

    I have seen this coming for 45 years.

    I'm guessing that means I have been aware of what a bunch of anti-American, seditious ratfreakers the 'Republican' Party is since before you were born.


    In fact, this entire board has gotten tired of hearing about it from me.


    The fact that you think I'm not of the opinion that these people are traitors to the Constitution, that they are racist, misogynist, homophobic, Dominionist, greed-driven spitstains upon the Earth, and that you think I am a 'hypocrite' for some unfathomable, inane delusional reason leads me to believe that you are not thinking clearly, that your thinking is clouded by rage.

    Get a grip, son.

    Quit savaging your allies.

    Your childish, petulant, holier-than-thou spew will elect Trump to a second and final term.

    While I think you have a good ten years on me Ozna.. I first became aware of how self serving the GOP was during the Reagan years. I always cared for the environment more than anything, and that administration seemed hell bent on do their best to destroy everything Nixon had put in place through the EPA. James Watt earned a lot of scorn from my then fledgling political self.
