The First Amendment is only for those places that don’t have it

This brutality occurs…

And the West political leaders are quick to react.

The European Union’s foreign policy chief urged interim authorities in Egypt on Sunday to halt violence against protesters





But in our own nation, this occurs…

And the noise of condemnation from our political leaders is deafening…in that you might as well be deaf because there isn’t any.

Though there is this:

Newt Gingrich charged that the Occupy Wall Street movement believes that “we all owe them everything” and announced, to great applause, that protesters should “go get a job right after you take a bath”

Yes, it’s 1970 all over again, when the only response to peaceful protest is to say “take a bath hippy”.

So after all in America, protest is okay for other countries, but not for the self-proclaimed Land of the Free.

An Internet Meme: Lt. Pike As the Representative of World Leadership



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
