You can’t make this stuff up.
So you can lose all your gun rights for LIFE if you go over your allotted talking time by even a second.
There should be tremendous pushback on this, yet it is barely in the news.
And this is only a township board meeting. These politiucians sure think they are important.
The city I live in has a pissing contest going on between the mayor and the city council. And to top it off, they are all Republicans.
He’ll have to spend thousands of dollars for a GOOD attorney on this.
It’s a perfect example of LAWFARE against a citizen by a corrupted government.
And your right to vote (by which you protect those gun rights - or is it the other way around?).
Meanwhile, demonRATs in PA are not prosecuted for taking bribes.
The US is gone.
In Michigan he’ll be able to vote as long as he isn’t in jail, on parole or probation.
“So you can lose all your gun rights for LIFE if you go over your allotted talking time by even a second.....There should be tremendous pushback on this, yet it is barely in the news.”....
The Republic has been turned completely upside down....Would the founding fathers have been silenced or would they have attempted to silence someone else who had a reasonable point to discuss?....Expressing the outrage I feel over this man’s rights being violated is pointless.....The communist media will not push this, and I doubt the brainwashed masses would recognize or question what took place anyway.....
We have been seriously considering the Saginaw,Bay City,Midland areas. IN fact it is our first choice.
We are a BANANA REPUBLIC....with NO bananas.
A lot more info in this story. Sounds like it may be mostly about a dispute over some land he owns.
I want to be within an hour of this woman
That’s because the “outrage” is being overwhelmed by the volume of abuses.
“Papercuts” that nick the body of our Freedom every day multiple times a day. And they have their defenders.
A felony? for political speech? Won’t last very long in any court if argued on 1st amendment grounds[or it shouldn’t last anyway...] but who has the $$’s required to fight the system that is stacked against you?
Short of taking over the townhall and disarming the “police” who are there, what are you going to really do?
The a$$folk in power know this and push against their own citizenry. And it doesn’t appear that party affiliation matters much.
I don't think it was for political speech. I think it was for resisting the officers who tried to remove him once he had gone over his allotted time.
It's kind of like this: if I'm pulled over for speeding and I point a gun in the officer's face, I'm not getting killed for speeding.
