KOSmic Kataklism & Freedom of Speech

April 5th, 2004 · 4 Comments

Someone has asked “Has anyone of them said anything about “what” he said?” After claiming that he would defend Kos’ right to be a moron, he notes that what Kos said “was disgusting and showed a total lack of humanity.” And, again, he asks, “Does anyone care to comment about that?”

Free Speech in the Blogosphere

April 5th, 2004 · 5 Comments

I spent the majority of my blogging time this weekend actually writing on another blog, in the comments section, where a hearty — if mostly unhealthy — discussion was going on between Kossacks, hardcore right-wingers and a smattering of people who, like me, don’t really belong to either group. The Kossacks, apparently so-named because they […]

Why Is Fresno So Against Free Speech?

March 20th, 2004 · No Comments

I have never been a member, nor attended any meetings of the group known as Peace Fresno. I’ve seen them on the street corner at Shaw & Blackstone periodically and, frankly, I’ve considered them to be not much more than the direct descendants of Don Quixote. But perhaps I’m naive in this. After all, the […]

CBS Censorship

February 5th, 2004 · No Comments

The other day, in perhaps not one of my best-written pieces ever, I said that “Bigger is NOT Better”. I doubt very many people read it, at least partly because of the length. Also, I’m still digesting a lot of the stuff I’ve been reading that needs to go into such an article; I probably […]

Truly Scary

July 28th, 2003 · 1 Comment

Creative Loafing Atlanta | NEWS & VIEWS | CAREFUL: THE FB-EYE MAY BE WATCHING Remember that freedom of speech includes the freedom to read. This is a story that’s, quite frankly, both difficult to believe and not difficult to believe at all these days. And that’s what makes it so scary.

The Mob That Used To Be The United States

May 9th, 2003 · No Comments

A friend of mine tonight sent me a funny “Letter to the Terrorists” all about how we’re pleased to accept their challenge to a game of whoopass. It might be funny but for one thing. It shows that our troops really did fight for oil, and nothing more. They didn’t fight for freedom of speech. […]

I couldn’t agree more…

…and so there isn’t much else to say about this comment from Bruce Springsteen.

Scalia’s Concept of Freedom

April 26th, 2003 · No Comments

I’m moving some information from my original “handcrafted” blog–from the days before I knew these were called “blogs” — to here. So some of my entries might appear out of sequence; I’m trying to modify them to mitigate that. As I said on my web page of March 23, 2003 [update 12/21/2005: apparently, I took […]

Freedom of (Civil) Speech

April 26th, 2003 · No Comments

An article on CNN today (“College sued over free speech rules“) reports that Shippensburg University has been sued because their speech policy has “a chilling effect on plaintiffs’ rights to freely and openly engage in appropriate discussions” in various areas. The Pittsburgh Post Gazette carries the story in a little more detail. The First Amendment, […]
