Yet another social commentary.... of sorts

Its seems that if someone says something, and another person or group of people don't like it , these days that person or persons is immediately labeled a terrorist. What ever happened to the right of free speech in America. In the past years I have heard numerous occasions where a person was speaking their mind. (which is their First Amendment right)But because it offended they were either told to shut up or hauled into court in front of a magistrate and told that they can not voice their opinion. A few days after the attacks on 9.11.01 there was a peace vigil. The local police took it upon them selves to video tape the demonstration, stating that the people there might commit a terrorist act. When the group and the organization representing the protesters took issue in court with the videotaping of the their peaceful gathering there argument was immediately quashed. As was their Constitutional rights to free assembly and free speech. It seems that a certain group was exercising this right. It seems that they were distributing leaflets with their edict. Now by no means do I condone or support this groups ideals. I absolutely abhor their actions and think they are despicable. The have the right to their opinion, and they have the right to voice their opinion. God Forbid. As soon as their opinion is voiced they are labeled terrorists."They are no different from the terrorists involved in the September 11 tragedy" Sen. P Resor (D) Massachusetts. "It’s a form of terrorism. It’s certainly an effort to terrorize," Mrs. Resor said. If someone is voicing their opinion on an Issue or topic I don't care for I don't tell them to shut up. I listen to their viewpoint and then give them my argument to their opinion, or let them have their say and let it be. Its like the people who complain about the immorality of television and radio, they go on and on about this program and that program. They have groups to petition, protest to and lobby the government. In effect they are voicing their opinion. Do we tell them to shut up? No. Do we, call them terrorists No. Personally if I see something on the TV or hear something on the radio that offends, I either change the channel or just shut the damn thing off. I really don't know if it makes any sense at all........but what does it matter...its just my opinion. Pissing and moaning again. D.Casabonne (C)2.16.02 All Rights Reserved
