It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either. ~ Mark Twain
People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use.
All these people talk so eloquently about getting back to good old-fashioned values. Well, as an old poop I can remember back to when we had those old-fashioned values, and I say let's get back to the good old-fashioned First Amendment of the good old-fashioned Constitution of the United States -- and to hell with the censors! Give me knowledge or give me death!
― Kurt Vonnegut
Everyone is in favor of free speech. Hardly a day passes without its being extolled, but some people's idea of it is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone else says anything back, that is an outrage. ~ Winston Churchill
To sin by silence, when they should protest, makes cowards of men.
― Abraham Lincoln All censorships exist to prevent anyone from challenging current conceptions and existing institutions. All progress is initiated by challenging current conceptions, and executed by supplanting existing institutions. Consequently, the first condition of progress is the removal of censorship.
― George Bernard Shaw
Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts. ― Daniel Patrick Moynihan
The struggle for a free intelligence has always been a struggle between the ironic and the literal mind. ― Christopher Hitchens
Free speech means the right to shout 'theatre' in a crowded fire. ― Abbie Hoffman
At no time is freedom of speech more precious than when a man hits his thumb with a hammer. ~ Marshall Lumsden
I have always been among those who believed that the greatest freedom of speech was the greatest safety, because if a man is a fool, the best thing to do is to encourage him to advertise the fact by speaking ~ Woodrow T. Wilson
Woohoo!!! It’s finally Friday!!!!
TOP FIVE TWO WEEKS IN A ROW!!!!!

Wild Bill for America
An elderly man is stopped by the police around 2 A.M. and asked where he is
going at this time of night.
The elderly man replies, “I am on my way to a lecture about gambling, alcohol
abuse and the effects it has on the human body, as well as smoking and staying
The officer then asks, “Really? Who is giving that lecture at this time of night?”
The elderly man replies, “That would be my wife!”
U.S. Government Irony
The SNAP/Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever.
Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to “Please Do Not Feed The Animals.” This is because the animals may grow dependent on handouts and not learn to take care of themselves.
Thus endeth todays Lesson.
