Congratulations to Joe Onate, a real man who is standing up for his right to free speech. Joe is a hero in this world of dreary sameness and religious dogma, which spreads like communism through the ranks of the republican party. Kudos to Joe for having the guts to go out there, amid extraordinary circumstances, and express himself.

freedom of speech is a great thing. to bad we don't even have it here. i've seen many comments deleted, for being considered libelous. but i have to say, why go against your own people, and our communities sons. i'm not going arounf pumping people full of patriotic beliefs. so please don't try to pump me full of anti-patriotic beliefs. I love America, and why wouldn't I it has supplied me with more tools for success, advancement, and fredom than any other country could. If people really don't like were they live move. I've left neighborhoods, because I didn't like the people surrounding me, so keep that in mind.

"i've seen many comments deleted, for being considered libelous."
There are lots of debates out there regarding this subject. Basically, the Weekly, as a private company operating and paying for the equipment, software, and support costs for this forum, reserves the right to delete comments and I support that. I don't see how this impedes freedom of speech. Freedom of speech doesn't mean a person gets to use someone else's time, money, and resources for their own opinions. I believe Joe Onate understands this concept.
