Unbelievable!!!! Notice the the CC member says that everything is controlled.
Can you share any details about this for those of us who are unable to watch videos at this time? Thank you.
apparently it’s gould, arkansas.
Here ya’ go. Just ran across this:
City council is pushing for a law (the major refuses to sign it) that restricts any group from forming anywhere that doesn’t first get CC approval. This applies to groups meeting in homes or wherever.
I’d love to see them try to enforce this “law.” FREEDOM OF ASSEMBLY is the right they seem to have forgotten.
Next step is of course ‘banning any not pre-approved thoughts’.
And that led to the children telling tales on their parents, their teachers, etc. in China. It is not as if we haven’t seen this before.
......Fox reports that even the city attorney tried to tell the council the proposal was illegal and violated the First Amendment. In return for his advice, Fox reported that “members tried to fire him.”
Kudos to this mayor. He seems like a good guy.
The city council is obviously a bunch of sh*t-for-brains.
Carelessness on James Madison’s part. He forbade Congress from passing a law abridging the freedom of speech, but forget to say anything about local governments.
They need to be very careful of what they do next. People are fed up.
“He forbade Congress from passing a law abridging the freedom of speech, but forget to say anything about local governments.”
The Bill of Rights is jsut that, not a bill of things the federal government cannot do.
“But Mayor Nash promised he would not sign the ordinance, calling it ludricous that he would not be allowed to meet with citizens to discuss city business.”
And being the Mayor, he can instruct the local police force (if there is one) not to enforce it!
minor point - the credit for the bil of rights should go to Patrick Henry, and the anti-federalists. Madison was a Federalist AFAIK.
I swear there is nothing worse than a local pinhead that believes he has power over people instead of granted by the people................damned old middle school hall monitors.
Lotta good that did. I’m not going to the virus-laden “examniner” blog to save my life.
How about a quick explanation of what is going on?
Or, cut and paste the blog text here maybe.
THIS IS IN ARKANSAS!?
Must be made up of southern Democrats. Even the south isnt safe from Communism.
I am sure the town council members who voted in favor of this measure do not understand what anyone is complaining about.
Nothing in the education they have received has taught them how wrong they are about the law they passed versus our rights.
