I usually do not put up a second response but I will to your question. First yes I can go to an airport and talk about bombs, I can go to time square
or any place else I can even go and stand out side or off property of any place and protest against them saying what ever I want. I maybe asked to
not curse because of young ones but will not be locked up for it, unless there is violence involved. At the air port I am sure I will be questioned
to determine my true agenda but then released after being properly searched to ensure the safety of those around me. The only thing that would put me
in jail for speech in the USA and is a written law is screaming fire in a movie theater, because such vocals if not true can cause harm to another.
As long as my action directly do not cause physical harm to another there is no crime for what I may or may not say. There is a law against slander
and that is civil not criminal. So yes we truly have freedom of speech as long as that speech doesn’t insight a riot or lead to violence against
another. I my self have spoken out about many controversial things in public and have never been arrested, questioned or ask to leave the area yes.
We have the right to protest against anything and everything period.
There is such a thing as perceived violence, and if what is said is perceived to be a real threat than action my be taken. Example I can say I am
going to kill (so and so) this is not a crime, but if I make actual plans and my actions are such perceived or I have the actual means to do so,
than I can be charged with a crime.
I can also declare that I have killed so many people, does this mean I will be charged with murder, no not at all if there is no proof it is nothing
more than a sick minded person looking for attention. And not a crime.
People may not like what a person says, but as and American and prior serviceman I will defend there right to say what ever they like. Weather I
agree with them or not. And that is true freedom of speech.
I hope that clears up a few things for you.
As far as addressing your socialist views, again I defend your right to speak about it, but I do not agree with you. Simple put best in the bible, if
I feed you today I will have to feed you tomorrow, but if I teach you to fish you can feed yourself. Now I know that is not the exact quotes so
don’t beat me up over it, but you get the point. I am for no socialist agenda what so ever. People need to learn how to live within there means
period, and we have insurance for the off chance of injury beyond a persons control to cause them loss of income and what not. All forms of
government socialism is bad, even social security, you do not have to pay into social security it is voluntary to do so, but it is a type of
retirement insurance a poor one at that. A person should invest in a ROTH IRA, for retirement and get out of the socialism program of SS.
Unemployment, food stamps and all the rest need to go away, it is a drain on the system. Some will say but we pay for our unemployment benefits, ok
yes you pay a small amount with every pay check and your employer pays some too. The rest comes from the tax payers. And if you work for 5 yrs and
added up all the money you paid into unemployment, you will have collected every dime of it back with in the first few weeks, do the math and get off
your ass and get a job. Can’t afford that 22 bedroom house than downsize, can’t afford to eat lobster every night then try some chicken. Cant
afford the 150 dollar cable bill for internet and a million channels then get a roof top antenna and spend more family time instead of playing on the
computer or watching one of the 10 TVs you got in the house. Most Americans have no clue what it is to be in hardship. All thanks to socialism
there is no more real charity, hope, or trust in this world. Time to get back to basics family, friends and neighbors period are the only ones that
should be helping you out, not the government entitlement programs that drain the system and makes us lazy people. And no I am not rich, in fact I am
poor but living within my means, I have not worked for 5 years because of injury and my wife is working instead so I am the stay at home dad. We are
a family of 5 living in a two bedroom house because that is what we can afford and the house is easy to maintain mortgage and utilities so I still
have some extra for my internet. Its all about priorities and most socialist have none except give me give me give me instead of wait let me get a 5
dollar an hour job instead of the million dollar job I once had and so on, because the government will feed me pay my electric and so on.
We need to wake up and smell the coffee the well has run dry and it’s high time we start take-in care of ourselves instead of waiting for the
government to hand it to you. A hand out is not a hand up, period.
May God Bless us all and Save us from ourselves
