Government Decreasing Our Freedoms


There is so much to talk about I don't know where to begin.

Let's talk about the House approving a flag-burning amendment.

Who is going to write the amendment? What words will be used? Will it say, "you can't desecrate the flag" or "you can't burn the flag"? If it's the latter, what type of flags? Or will this have to be decided when someone gets arrested & the court/judge will have to make a final ruling. If the wording is to "desecrate the flag", what if it's a flag pin and I throw it away? Or if I'm wearing an old T-Shirt (with the flag on it) with holes in it? Where are we going to draw the line?

Does this mean, we taxpayers, get to pay for all the court costs, regulations, and flag police? You betcha.

What if I pour paint on the 'a' flag? Or if I draw a picture of a flag, using crayons, and burn it or crumple is up?

This is another example of big, fat, bloated government doing everything and doing nothing for us at the same time.

Hey I got another...

The Supreme Court ruled that local governments "can force property owners to sell out and make way for private economic development when officials decide it would benefit the public."

Oh great! So now if it's in the best interest - of the government (who have ties to all corporations) - to build a mall because it would provide jobs & revenue for the local government, it's okay to seize your property or force you to move. Unbelievable.

Our government doesn't seem to be increasing freedoms, but doing more to decrease them. (Don't forget about the Patriot Act).

Oh Good Grief!
