This is yet another demonstration of fascist actions through over regulation, the bane of fredom and democracy. Such agencies do NOT have jurisdiction over our freedoms and do NOT have the right to act like damned fascists,EXCEPT most of the herd capitulates and SURRENDERS their freedoms. The herd GIVES AWAY their God granted rights and freedoms WITHOUT a fight to these minions of bastardly fascism.
This is the state of affairs, nobody has any fight as most are insecure and unwiling to pay the price to defend freedom. Freedom was the entity our forbears defended with their lives during the last two Great Wars and which bureaucracies, the system, and damned legends in their own mind seek to steal.
We must oppose them. Constance and Mark are doing what it takes to fight in thier own circumstance for freedom and BTW, I have an anonymous donor who agrees to kick in a grand for the last fund raiser when I was away and missed a fight. Pity me.
For the record, I believe some good people were treated unjustly, people who were free thinkers and supporters of this site. I can see BOTH sides of the story and also see the pressure and duress Constance was/is under.
While not agreeing at all, and while having met some of these people on my first trip tot he west this past year, I find that right or wrong, the owners do have a right to make their decision whatever that was, if I do or do not agree.
I say this to weigh in on the situation as there are more than a few who have wondered about my position and have emailed me at my home email address and even talked to me.
I will not challenge what I do not agree with in this instance, but I do have a position, but I will not and cannot weaken nor ignore the FD standing and record in opposing the attacks on freedom of speech the owners have fought valiantly, long and hard against for years.
I can remain opposed to what I do not like within an organization while seeing still the goals, history and record of a good organization and good people.
I personally, and others here, I am sure have been misjudged and the objects of injustice even imposed by close family members. I do not think that reality wil ever change, but we will go on.
Please let me know if I said something that offended you. I may want to offend you again sometime.
