Free Speech

Why?

What WOULD Thomas Jefferson think? . What happens when a group of twenty US citizens celebrates the ideas of Jefferson by silently dancing by his memorial for ten minutes? Arrests. And we think we’re a liberty-loving people?  

The message from opponents is “how DARE you criticize my words!”

All politics is local.  While this spitting match is local, the overall theme is "newly rich move into small hamlet, starts wanting the ‘left behind’ amenities", wants to remake town.   Well, it seems like I have crawled under the skin of those that are unhappy that I dared to criticize  what they wrote in …
