    Free Speech Control Pilot

    in Politics Conservative

    Like gun control advocates, we believe free speech can be used as a dangerous weapon. There should be some very, very reasonable restrictions put in place, such as:
    Every American should obtain a free speech license The free speech license should have to be renewed every five years Each person should be limited to no more than 7 words at a time Come join us as we push for our legislators to pass these obviously reasonable restrictions in the middle of the night without reading the bill because this important issue can't wait another moment!

    Revisionists History, Internet, And Free Speech

    in Politics

    No one should be imprisoned for writing a book!

    Countries that have laws that limit the scope and substance of World War II and Holocaust research include France, Germany, Switzerland, Canada, Australia, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, and Spain.1 These laws make it a crime for anyone, regardless of their credentials or the factual basis of their views, to question or revise any aspect of the history of World War II or the Holocaust in a manner that goes beyond the some-what arbitrary standards established by the governments of those countries.2
    Although there are no laws in the United States that criminalize Holocaust and World War II history, some of our nation's most prestigious legal minds have backed a proposed law intended to do just that.
    Not to mention this is all HIStory, what about HErstory?

    Why should you, why should any of us, be concerned that certain areas of historical research have been criminalized?
    The problem is, many of those who are complaining the loudest right now about the "chill" on free speech are the very people who laid the groundwork for speech restrictions and muted public de-bate. This includes the college professors and administrators who, throughout the 1990s, championed campus "speech codes" that restricted the expression of views they deemed "insensitive."

    However, to paraphrase the Beatles, in the end, the free speech you get will be equal to the free speech you give.

    From me, the host, brooke:  Yo I am just sharing another perspective cause I love DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES! doesn't mean I endorse or believe, I just love to hear all the sides! I hope you do to!

    Free Speech In Oklahoma - And Racism

    in Current Events

    Oklahoma has a history or racism. It is a fact that the worst race riot occured in Tulsa via " Greenwood" , Oklahoma . One of the first laws enacted in Oklahoma was one of segreatation. With the strong ties between the Klan and the Oil companies founded in Oklahoma. It is not surprising the recent events at Oklahoma University . The only way to impede free speech as I understand it - is to incite a riot or incite violence to a minority group. Let us have a discussion - you may be insulted on the program - be aware that oversensitivity as a form of abuse is not tolerated on this program.

    All calls taken but I reserve the right to mute you . 646 716 7259

    Free Speech Zones -- Nefarious or Necessary?

    in Politics

    In the United States, "free speech zones" are fixtures at many public areas. Although the U.S. Constitution states that "Congress shall make no law...abridging...the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances," courts have ruled that Government has the power to regulate the time, place, and manner of protests, but not the content of the speech.

    These rulings have allowed for free speech zones to be carved out at places and events, such as seats of government, political rallies, party conventions, etc. Some feel that these regulations of protest are in direct violation of the First Amendment. They feel that it is a mockery of the First Amendment for the courts to allow Government to restrict the time and place of protests, in that many free speech zones, in practice, limit or eliminate the visibility of the protesters.

    Others, however, feel that free speech zones are necessary, perhaps a necessary evil. They agree that there are certain areas where it's just too dangerous to allow protests. They feel that free speech zones protect the general public from the protesters, and vice versa.

    On this week's program, we will discuss free speech zones,  and hear each other's views on the merits, or lack thereof, of the existence of free speech zones.

    Is Freedom of Speech Really Free???

    in Entertainment

    The Constitution of the United States guarantees freedom of Speech. However, "freedom of speech does not mean freedom from the consequences of that speech. While the language in our Constitution protects our right to say almost anything in public, rulings by the Supreme Court still hold us responsible if our utterances are deemed to have been libel, slander, or caused harm to others.
