“Imagine if people got just as mad at the government attacking individual rights through taxation, inflation, the war on drugs, the wars abroad, and the gun bans as when people kneel during the national anthem.” – The Pholosopher
(Michael Cabanatuan) BART’s shut-off of subterranean cell phone service in its downtown San Francisco stations may have prevented a protest Thursday, but it sparked accusations Friday that the action stifled free speech and smacked of the kind of government intrusion employed by Middle East dictators.
“All over the world, people are using mobile devices to protest oppressive regimes, and governments are shutting down cell phone towers and the Internet to stop them,” said Michael Risher, a staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California. “It’s outrageous that in San Francisco, BART is doing the same thing.”
Just remember: even in their infinite wisdom, the Founders still only had mechanical, paper-fed printing presses in their day! And, when they bestowed us lowly serfs with the amazing gifts of free speech and free press, they never could have imagined inventions like DIGITAL MEDIA, the INTERNET, and RADIO!!! Therefore, if the honest and honorable representatives of America’s government truly want to continue the great work that the Founders started, they must finally legislate some common-sense limits into our antiquated system of laws, so that the lunatic fringes of our society can no longer cower behind our obviously obsolete Bill of Rights, while they wreak havoc on the rest of us sane people with impunity! It’s time to give them a taste of PROGRESS!

Would it surprise you to know that, apparently, the First Amendment is reserved ONLY for those citizens that choose NOT to criticize the American Police State? If your answer is “yes,” then you obviously haven’t been paying attention!
