    Creeping incrementalism... I wonder how long it'll be until the politics side of the forum is shut down by some alphabet agency? Shoot, maybe they'll feel the need to take the whole thing down since we're all a bunch of gun totin' radicals. (And proud of it!)[}:)]

    So, if it's now officially a felony to protest where secret police are present... How do you know when secret police are present if they are secret? What happens when a secret policeman spots a protest online? Does that make him present and therefore a felony protest?

    The word "underground" comes to mind.

    The right to protest the government and freedom to practice your religion was the whole reason for the First Amendment.

    Amendment I:
    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    It doesn't look like a "creeping destruction" of the First Amendment to me. It looks like a total repeal of the First Amendment. The "Free Speech Zones" are an example of "creeping destruction".
    The road to hell is paved with COMPROMISE.

    How is it possible that out of some 535 elected officials, they have all chosen to ignore the laws of the land. Are they lacking in character, in understanding, or ability? How is it that we understand the value of what they have discarded and they do not? Impeachment is too good for them.

    Normally I find the Bill read it and find that it has been blown way out of proportion and not even anything to worry about.

    But this one is short and simple and gets right to the Point. It restricts free Speech.

    quote:
    One Hundred Twelfth Congress



    of the



    United States of America



    AT THE SECOND SESSION

    Begun and held at the City of Washington on Tuesday,

    the third day of January, two thousand and twelve

    An Act

    To correct and simplify the drafting of section 1752 (relating to restricted buildings or grounds) of title 18, United States Code.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,


    SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the `Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011'.

    SEC. 2. RESTRICTED BUILDING OR GROUNDS.

    Follow the dollar boys. Our local politicians are power and money grabbing fools. Our local level is BAD. Just how much more crooked it must be where the big bucks exchange hands. No morals, greed, and crooks are what's running the country.
