Free Speech

Blogline of the Day: on Free Speech

by Skip September 26, 2012

Glen Reynolds of Instapundit (emphasis mine): DOES THE U.S. “OVERVALUE” FREE SPEECH? No, I think we undervalue kicking the ass of people who oppose it. Indeed – the response of our President, our Secretary of State, and the others in the Obama Administration (and the Democrat Operatives with bylines in the MSM) have been on […]

Ask A NH Democrat – About Free Speech

by Steve MacDonald September 17, 2012

A private citizen made a lousy YouTube video about six months ago.  A few days ago islamo-fascists used it as a vehicle to inflame Muslim uprisings.  Under the cover of same, Americans were killed, or in some cases executed.  The Obama Administration’s response to the killings was to send the police out in the dark […]

Obama, you’re no Margaret Thatcher when it comes to Free Speech

by Skip September 16, 2012

Glen Reynolds over at Instapundit is just.all.over.this Obama #FAIL and the way it illustrates the hypocrisy that ReProgressives and Socialists have between the words they speak and what they want you to believe about them, and the actions that belie those words and public beliefs, as he floats all over the blogosphere and reports back: […]

Glen Reynolds nails it – “Why Barack Obama should resign”

by Skip September 15, 2012

What do you say about a Government that care more about its image, more about its power, and more about re-election than doing what it is supposed to be doing?  I don’t often put up entire posts – but this one deserves to be read in it entirety – Glen Reynolds aka “Mr. Instapundit” aka […]

Will Video Almost No One Has Seen (About Mohammad?) Be Used to Control Internet?

by Steve MacDonald September 14, 2012

Attacks on 9/11 we knew were coming, a video no one (inflamed) has or will ever see that inflaming Islamists, dead Americans on foreign soil, and repeated claims that in America, the government can’t control everything that goes up on the internet… Sounds like an excuse for Democrats to argue that the US government Should.

The Promise of The Democrat Police State

by Steve MacDonald August 13, 2012

Democrats obstructing speech they object to continued… after yesterdays post, which produced some necessary followup.  Obama campaign officials obstructed a Pennsylvania reporter from speaking to Obama supporters waiting outside, in line for an Obama rally.  A Commenter, C. dog, responded with a link to this story from 2008, at the Democrat National Convention, in Denver.

Ask A New Hampshire Democrat…About Silencing The Press

by Steve MacDonald August 12, 2012

New Hampshire Democrats have no problem silencing speech they object to or that contradicts their agenda so it will be interesting to get their take on this.  As de-facto supporters and defenders of Obama and the presidents re-election campaign, someone should ask them to explain why that campaign stopped a reporter from interviewing supporters, waiting […]

New Hampshire Democrats Will Love This Idea

by Steve MacDonald July 27, 2012

Democrats love rich people, when they are Democrats.  They take their money and give them taxpayer subsidized loans to prop up their failed business ventures.  They love working people, when they are in unions…baling out UAW workers at Car companies when you know that were it non-union Toyota or Honda–plants in America with American workers, […]

You’re Just Not Smart Enough For Free Speech

by Steve MacDonald July 2, 2012

All things being equal, the only reason Democrats might have to complain about the affect of FEC vs. Citizens United on paid political speech is if it somehow removed some pre-existing advantage they had.  Why else cause such a fuss?  The left clearly has just as much right to take advantage of the current state […]

“Carefully considered and narrowly tailored…?”

by Steve MacDonald June 13, 2012

New Hampshire Governor John Lynch Vetoed SB175 this week, a bill that would allow heirs to control the commercial use of a celebrities identity.  But I’m not all that interested in the Veto or the bill, I am more…amused…by the hypocrisy in his explanation for it. The Union Leader reports Governor Lynch as suggesting that […]

MSNBC witch suppresses speech she doesn’t approve of: “You’re in my house now!”

by Tim Condon May 14, 2012

This is why MSNBC sucks: The fascist-friendly network has a female talking head whose position is…only acceptable speech allowed! (And it’s important to note that leftists think it’s just great!)

HB 1704 – Republicans doing the dirty work by resurrecting HassanSpeech? Part 2

by Skip May 14, 2012

OK, Part 1 is here – which simply pulled out a couple of nuggets from the proposed HB 1704 as found at  NH.GOV. While there was enough uproar to have the NH Senate table it last week, it is supposedly coming back from the dead.  I have already made the pitch that the bill needs […]

Please Keep Your Hands Off My Speech

by Steve MacDonald May 8, 2012

Political speech is a popular subject these past few days, and seeing as that is what we do here, it should be.  Any slight change about what is defined as paid speech could make what we do very difficult to define financially, and more cumbersome to execute.  Take for example the value of web space […]

How about we amend HB 1704 to stifle some policial speech while we’re at it?

by Steve MacDonald May 7, 2012

I just shot off a quick email to my New Hampshire State Senator this morning.  I do not know his stance on this yet, but I have some questions about language added, via amendment, to HB 1704, regarding political speech.   I find the amendment language confusing. I am not certain of the purpose, or […]

Free Speech Rights? Not if you disagree with Greenpeace USA!

by Skip April 19, 2012

On their site, they have a page of “FAQs” about why you can’t believe any who is a “climate change denier”, and this page is calling Exxon their personal bogeyman (I notice that no mention of ClimateGate and the MBs of emails and bad data is mentioned – and I just giggled when I read […]

The Reality of Progressive Intimidation

by Steve MacDonald March 14, 2012

What you should take away from the Rush Limbaugh fracas, other than that aside from the choice of words, he was right. First, advertisers who initially abandoned Rush Limbaugh are afraid of the left.  They are afraid that the party of big government will come at them with all their resources to undermine whatever it […]

Where the Heck is My Damn Lobbyist? (HB 1342)

by Steve MacDonald February 21, 2012

New Hampshire HB 1342 would prohibit towns and cities from using your tax dollars to hire a lobbyist to send to Concord.  This seems like a pretty good idea to me.   But not to the Committee which rejected it 12-2 sending it to the House floor as Inexpedient to Legislate. (It gets voted on tomorrow.) […]

Democrats Want Lobbyists In DC

by Steve MacDonald September 24, 2011

The end of the McCain-Feingold era of unconstitutional speech restrictions demonstrated one very important point. It was wholly a left wing agenda item, and critical enough to the Democrats as a party that they would make total fools of themselves over its end. Almost every left winger who has spoken on the matter is off the rails and Giridharadas’ remarks are no different; that public corporate speech and backroom corporate lobbyists are a reflection the same problem when in fact restriction of the first is what necessitates more of the second.

NH Democrats Still Want To Limit Free Speech

by Steve MacDonald September 3, 2011

Government can do nothing without first denying someone of their legally earned income, so this bill established that it was acceptable for 51% of those doing the taxing to define what constituted free speech. When that happens free speech is no longer a protected right, it is a legislated privilege regulated by a democratic mobocracy.

Meet Bob “Bathroom Bill” Perry (Reprise)

by Steve MacDonald August 8, 2011

So if you’re interested in more unaccountable government, a debt spending state legislature, balloon bills, regulatory restrictions that scare off jobs, late night taxes passed without one single hearing, and an endless string …half-witted, poorly thought out mandates like the one that could have turned every ladies locker-room or public bathroom into a drive thru for every drunk guy, horny adolescent, or sex offender who has suddenly felt the need to get in touch with their feminine side (or your wives or daughters), then you want Bob Perry.

Meet Bob “Bathroom Bill” Perry

by Steve MacDonald July 12, 2011

Bob supported all the taxes, the wacky accounting, the bad revenue estimates, the overspending, the nanny state nonsense, even job killing taxes and bloated government spending during a recession. A vote for Bob is a vote for more taxes, more fees, less money in your wallet every year, and more bureaucracy and state control everywhere else.
