    Nothing like finding out you live4 in a much less free country than you may have thought.

    The problem seems to be just who is to decide what the facts are.

    Scary?.......I think so.

    That Australian broadcaster would have some free speech protections here......

    Glad we have the 1st Amendment. People are free to express themselves.

    Much like the random idiocy here. (guilty too)

    Yes, you have me there. Yes there are many who speak their minds and suffer consequences. But try speaking your mind in Afghanistan or Cuba. We have it much better and it will be even better when the jailer in chief is gone.

    None. So far I haven't seen anyone come to his defense which I find rather alarming.

    We have plenty of DU sponsored posters coming here who probably think that all of the rest of us need some of that training. :supergrin:
