Get Use To Losing Free Speech!

Original post made by - on Mar 16, 2009

Free speech is the enemy of liberals. Get use to losing free speech when Obama tries to impose the equivalent of the Fairness Doctrine (or whatever he names it).

At least with Obama our liberties are being restored, quite the opposite of what right-wingers and neo-cons spin. Where were you when Bush chipped away at the basic tenets of the U.S. Constitution?

What really killed me was when a very conservative member of my family was visibly upset that I voted for Barak Obama. "How could you?" he asked. I was dumbfounded. He was upset by Bush(whom he voted for twice) that I would not vote a Republican (McCain) How about this: definition of insanity: doing the same thing twice and expecting different results!

His stimulus (and lack of more of it) will generate jobs which means taxes. If we have inflation, the Federal Reserve Bank will increase rates to slow down the economy.

Talk about sore losers. I'm so sick of these inflammatory Obama threads. He won. As so many of you said regarding Prop 8: get over it and move on! At my job we have a 3 month probationary period. Many of you have judged our president before he was in 3 DAYS. And I agree with Mike...obviously you weren't paying attention or simply didn't care when the Bush administration did worse!
