Freedom of speech Right, as stated in the 1st and 14th Amendments to the Constitution of the United States, to express information, ideas, and opinions free of government restrictions based on content.
A modern legal test of the legitimacy of proposed restrictions on freedom of speech was stated in the opinion by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. in Schenk v. U.S. (1919): a restriction is legitimate only if the speech in question poses a "clear and present danger" — i.e., a risk or threat to safety or to other public interests that is serious and imminent.
Many cases involving freedom of speech and of the press also have concerned defamation, obscenity, and prior restraint (see Pentagon Papers). See also censorship.
Legal doctrine has not always translated into public understanding or freedom in fact, but here the result of a large number of Supreme Court cases protecting even harmful and offensive speech in the public forum, and narrowing to virtual disappearance the legal definition of "obscenity," has created an environment in which the presence of unpleasant speech is tak- en for granted by most of the public, whether they agree with that state of affairs or not. There will, of course, continue to be disputes about the actual boundaries of this very broad principle, but the legacy of the Jehovah's Witnesses, of the civil rights movement, and of the Vietnam protesters is one that is unlikely to be very much narrowed, in large part because the legacy of the red scare of 1919 and the McCarthy era of the late 1940s and early 1950s is one whose avoidance also influences current understanding.

Research, as you call it, is in the eyes of the beholder. Anyone can copy and paste words from another site. This doesn't represent the type research I do. I have determined that based on the life of Prescott Bush, George HW Bush and his retard son that they are elitist pigs intent on a one world government (United Nations control) and the elemination of all nationalism. It's a free choice. One is welcome to burry their head in the sand and accept the BS puked forth by the elitists, if one wishes. Have a nice evening!

When it happens to Obama after his presidency is up, it'll be attributed to racism. So, I guess the double standard will continue. This jackass should have payed for President Bush's meal, since he chose to disrupt it.

This A-Hole (Bush, Sr) and his retarded son are the scum of the Earth. Practicing good manners shouldn't be wasted on such evil.
