Please don't say this as we. I was born well after these crap decisions were made. I sure as hell didn't have a say in the fact the you need a
lisence or permit to take a crap. I would have rallied against this.
I say "we" as in the collective, but unless you are under 10 years old... yes you are apart of "we". I am just as guilty as everyone else. "Free
Speech Zones" began during the Bush Jr years. However it did not start there. I have no idea when permits to protest actually started, it may have
been before I became aware of what was going on around me, it may have been after and I just missed it. However, I am aware now so the thing we must
all ask ourselves are... what can we do about it and what are we willing to sacrifice to right the wrong? No matter how you want to slice it... we
will have to sacrifice to make it right. History has shown us that you can not gain rights without bloodshed.
Without bloodshed, there would be no Constitution. Look at the 60's and the Civil Rights Movement... how much blood was shed for Blacks to gain the
rights they enjoy today, which are now being slowly stripped away, not just for Blacks, but for all of us.
It is the nature of American's to really turn and look the other way until something actually effects your day to day life. We are selfish by
nature. Anyone else might even call it complacent. Americans are totally uncaring and complacent. We do not care about anything until it effects us
directly. If it happens to someone else, we say, "Oh thats too bad. Thats wrong. That is not right" yet we do NOTHING about it... until it happens
to us or someone else we actually care about. Then we stand up and demand change. As a society we are stupid and uncaring. We can not see past our
nose. Society as a whole can not seem to grasp the way power is abused and we always hope for the best and continue to give trust to a Federal
Government that bends us over and plows us like a 2 dollar whore. Then we sit back and wonder..how did we get here?
We got here by small incremental steps that we were too flippin stupid to realize that these small steps were part of a larger agenda....and now that
people are starting to figure it out, it may be too little too late. So yes, I will sat "We" because "We" continue to allow it. "We" may bitch
and moan on a message board, but "We" publicly do nothing. Weather that is because we are afraid of being ridiculed or chastised or labeled as a
crazy or it is for some other reason, does not change the fact that Americans sit back and continue to get plowed until their day to day life is
Maybe it is because we all feel we have too much to lose. We have lives, we have food, we have homes, we have cars and material possessions that we
enjoy and are afraid that by moving to the fore front and being recognized will somehow take those possessions away. However the fact remains that
possessions can easily be lost, and in the words of Gerald Celente..... "When people lose everything and there is nothing left to lose, they lose
