As I have mentioned in other threads, certain things going on in this country right now disturb me. Everyday there are more and more reports of people being arrested for perfectly legal "crimes", not being told what they are being held for, not being read any of their rights, and not being allowed to contact a lawyer. Then Ashcroft has the nerve to go off and say "if you question us, you are a terrorist".

It seems clear enough now that the Bush administration is not interested in preserving rights. Thankfully, the ACLU is. And every American here should support them, because I know every American here loves freedom.

But freedom isn't just something you can wake up one morning and decide to have. You have to fight for freedom. Freedom is a test every single day of your life. Once you can listen to someone say something that you would sooner spend your life fighting against, and say to him "I don't like what you said, but I love that you said it", then you can call yourself free.

Bush doesn't want you to be free, but the ACLU does. Please support them!

Thank God. Me and Sheriff Nuts FINALLY have a topic to throw down over.

Everyday there are more and more reports of people being arrested for perfectly legal "crimes", not being told what they are being held for, not being read any of their rights, and not being allowed to contact a lawyer. Then Ashcroft has the nerve to go off and say "if you question us, you are a terrorist".

Everyday? Funny, things must be happening differently in Seattle because around me, everyday, I don't see of hear of more and more reports of being being hassled and such. Also, Billy Joe with his lack of teeth being accused of slapping up his ole lady, and is questioning why he is being held, I am sure Ascroft does not think is a terrorist. Statements such as these can be taken in several different ways, and leave it to an outed Republican Hater to start twisting from the start.

It seems clear enough now that the Bush administration is not interested in preserving rights. Thankfully, the ACLU is. And every American here should support them, because I know every American here loves freedom.

Hey Superfly ERRRRRRRRRRRRR Sheriff Nuts. How in the world can the Bush Administration not be intrested in preserving rights? Thing is, with people of your stance, if Bush and Co. didn't do anything like they are now, they would be criticised. When they do something, they are criticised. Hell, wasn't/isn't the ALCU overly concerned for Taliban prisioners in Gitmo? Now I respect the ALCU to a point, but to put blind faith into them is a huge mistake. Putting blind faith into anything is a huge mistake.

Oh, and lastly, people have been getting hassled, detained for no reason, denied access to a lawyer, their wig split, ect. for a long long time. It's not a new problem. Don't try and limit it to the Bush Presidency.

Who's putting blind faith in anything? I put faith in the ACLU to preserve my rights like I put faith in Safeway to have my dinner. But blind? Nah....

True. The Government can do anything in the interest of public safety... and now is a perfect time to exploit that, wouldn't you say?


Anyhoo, I just wanted to acknowledge the ACLU for at least attempting to protect our rights as citizens under the Constitution.  Smile

One word - or acronym: NAMBLA

I would never, and advise everyone I know, to not support an organization who fights for the rights of people to molest children. I'd suggest that you don't either.

Rights are overrated.

People like to feel that they're in control. They're NOT. Whatever rights you think you have, you're not in control. You've got a gun -- whoopy shit. IRS/Inland Revenue type a few things into a computer you've got no house no car and no life. You've got a lawyer. Big deal -- the most expensive lawyer will win the case.

The fact is that the government controls your life. You can't stop that. In some ways it a GOOD thing. Certain countries have a very authoritarian government, especially some in Europe. Some of those countries are very prosperous and have a high standard of living. People there say they don't care whether the state rules their lives are not -- it makes their lives better so why should they care?

You are putting blind faith in the government. In the FBI and the CIA to stop you getting blown up. On the military to stop you being invaded. On the food and drug commissions to stop you being poisoned and on the power commisions to give you the power to use your PC to post this on the internet.

Your rights stand fot jack-shit. Realise the truth.

Its an organization that stands up for MEN molsesting LITLLE BOYS. There is a point were you can hide behind free speech. This is one of they. They are fileing lwsuites against the airlines? That's so ridiculous I cant even stand it. Again, there is a line that is drawn between free speech and the other side, and you know it.

Where IS the line? Is being pro-Palestinian allowed? How about pro-abortion? Pro-rape? Pro-child abuse? Pro-murder? After all, it's all free speech.

I am surprised you dont know they line. I will give an example. If I got on radio and said a bunch of "bad" words, I would be fired, you cant say certin words on the radio. So why isn't the ACLU all over that? Thats one example out of many. BTW, The point of my Previous post was to show that the ACLU SEES NO PROBLEM WITH MEN MOLESTIING LITTLE BOYS. Freedom fighters?

Swearing is different than speaking your mind. If all you have on your mind is a swear word, then you are an idiot. Idiots can talk all they want, they just don't get heard.


ACLU SEES NO PROBLEM WITH MEN MOLESTIING LITTLE BOYS

Bullshit. Plain old undeniable bullshit. The ACLU is not supporting what they do, it's supporting their right to talk. NAMBLA has the same freedom of speech rights as you, NWA (a frightening thought, as I am beginning to wonder who the greater evil is -- joke), whether you like it or not. Maybe only people who agree with you should be able to talk? No, that's called Totalitarianism. We are a Republic, are we not?


I say the line, if there must be one, is when you start threatening to do harm to someone else. Everything up until then exists only in your mind.

So if I were to say we should bomb Afghanistan after September 11th that's OVER the line?

Yes, because you haven't indicated that you plan on committing a crime.

Example: "I'm going to slit your throat, 777," is unacceptable, because you clearly are planning on doing bodily harm to another.

However, saying that "Slitting throats is good and moral," is acceptable, because it's just an opinion, nothing more.


Of course all of the above is for public speaking. I've said things (jokingly, I swear) to my friends that could probably get me deported. But hey, who hasn't? A private conversation has different rules, rules only you can decide on.

Hardley. I respect people that disagree with me. I dont respect people that dont say anything however. Thos is why, for the most part, I dont agree with your ideas, but I respect your right to say them and the points that you make. I am more of a libritrian thank you, I hate points of authority. Now then, by supporting them, even there right to free speech, IMO, is suporting them.

LOL, that's a good one We're nuts. Sounds like YOU'RE NUTS. Now before I throw up all of my dinner, let me tell you how wrong you are when you say that the Aclu are the freedom fighters. The ACLU is an organization that means well, but in reality is corrupt. I have gone to the trouble in finding a few articles on the internet to back up my point, and here is just a little of what I found....

The American Civil Liberties Union claims to protect rights, political dissenters, and the vitality of political and creative discourse. The organization, in my view, is exceptionally corrupt, a handmaiden of the pornographers, the Nazis, and the Ku Klux Klan. Only the pornographers give them lots of money. The Nazis and the Klan they help on principle. It's their form of charity work. I didn't understand this in 1981. I thought something was wrong but I wasn't exactly sure what. I wrote this piece to try to raise a real debate about the values and tactics of the ACLU. Forget it, folks. The ACLU is immune to criticism because virtually none gets published--none on the Left. I couldn't get this piece published but I did get some mean--even handwritten--letters from left, progressive, and libertarian editors expressing their disgust with my "contempt'' for free speech. Speech is what I do; it ain't free; it costs a lot. This piece has never been published before.

Dear Editor,
It's the 200th anniversary of The Bill of Rights, and what is the American Civil Liberties Union doing? In San Francisco, they are threatening a feminist organization with legal action to silence their political speech. Yes, that's right, the same folks who brought you the free speech rationale for defending the Nazis, the Klan and the pornographers, including child pornographers, are bringing you the threat of silencing explicitly political feminist speech because they have been . . . well, it seems they've been offended.
Always Causing Legal Unrest, whose acronym is ACLU, has parodied the American Civil Liberties Union in political leaflets and buttons. In particular, it has parodied the American Civil Liberties Union's version of First Amendment doctrine by which, mindless of political context and power, it defends the political status quo by championing those who perpetrate abuse in the name of speech. In response, the American Civil Liberties Union has written a letter threatening to invoke the power of the state to suppress political speech in order to put an end to the parody of their organization.

I bet you didn't know who the biggest contributors to the ACLU financially are: Pornographers. One of the lowest forms of society, this scum pours the money of that they rake off addicted souls into the ACLU to defend there pics.

Theyre not trying to preserve the constition, there trying to make it so that anything flies that their 3rd party interest groups want. Lefty's always stick up for the ACLU.

It always amazes me to see a democrat who says Bush is trying to take away rights...........generally socialist liberals like Were Nuts do that for us, not Bush.
