First amendment? What first amendment? That's so yesterday.

Postby Iron Butterfly on Wed Mar 21, 2012 12:17 am

The First Amendment of the United States Constitution protects the right to freedom of religion and freedom of expression from government interference. Freedom of expression consists of the rights to freedom of speech, press, assembly and to petition the government for a redress of grievances, and the implied rights of association and belief. The Supreme Court interprets the extent of the protection afforded to these rights. The First Amendment has been interpreted by the Court as applying to the entire federal government even though it is only expressly applicable to Congress. Furthermore, the Court has interpreted, the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment as protecting the rights in the First Amendment from interference by state governments. See U.S. Const. amend. XIV.

With that said...

Yup. Obama allows his OWS minions to camp outside private businesses for months while they harass people and rape women. But dare to speak out against him and its a felony. That's some serious ass deuchery.

Just wait until we get a republican president again. He'll be doing the same shit that Obama is doing now. It's the government as a whole that's heading in this direction, not just the democrats.

That's because they are both progressives. Most people know there is little difference from a progressive Republican and a progressive Democrat, most people do not know what progressive actually means in the political context, so we keep getting progressives that keep doing the same shit.

my post is not directly related to the article, just the reality of what is happening to the first amendment.

It's the Progressives, which happen to be a super majority in the entire damn government, and are diametrically opposed to the Constitution.

Ok, then you should say "The progressives have tried to change...." instead of "The left has tried to change...".

Who's in power right now? Who is this article about? I'm just using present tense. But if you want to go there, how many on the right argue for freedom from religion?

, H.R. 347 was approved unanimously by the Senate, the House by 388-3 — only Ron Paul and two other Republicans objected — and signed into law Thursday by President Barack Obama.

Who's in power right now? A politician. The left/right spectrum is an illusion in our government. It's there to polarize people and get them to fight each other, instead of realizing that our country is slowly but surely turning into a police state. By buying into the bullshit and constantly disparaging "the left", you are enabling yourself to be used as a pawn. There is de facto only one political party in our nation.

Also, what BBS said.

First, The Democrats are progressive? Obama has been the most middle of the road, all words and no action, milquetoast president in decades. Let's review his supposedly progressive policies:

1. Expands the military and involvement in Afghanistan. Corporate Friendly
2. Puts out a health care bill that would have been touted by the crony capitalist (the supposed "big government") Republicans if they had written it. Is a big time victory for insurance companies, as their customer base is forcibly increased. Corporate Friendly
3. Lets the federal reserve print money to prop up the criminal banking industry. Corporate Friendly
4. Gives large amounts of money to General Motors. Corporate Friendly
5. Used government money to address the current depression. Plan did not involve throwing money at rich people. Evil Socialism, Apparently

If you can think of something else that was progressive let me know. I've been trying to find a single positive thing that Obama has done that involves more than empty pontificating and fluff, and I have yet to think of anything.

Second, why is it that only the Democrats are anti-Constitution? Last I checked the Patriot Act has bi-partisan support, and that's the biggest Constitutional assault in recent history.

4. is corporate and union friendly.
5. is Keynesian. It's expansive monetary and fiscal policy designed to magically stimulate the economy.
