I've looked at this thread a couple of times today and refrained from adding to the conversation. The whole tragedy still puts my emotions in an
uproar across the board.
I am a Liberty Loving individual. I believe in freedom. I believe that as long as a persons freedom does not impede upon another person's freedom,
we should be just that...free....free to live as we want, free to "life liberty and the pursuit of happiness"...free to face life on our own
There are many times people in the media...radio, television....have said things that irritate the crap out of me...but I hold steadfast that it is
their right to speak their mind. I will not try to silence them even when I completely disagree with them.
I find it a sad-sad day when tragedy can be used as a weapon...a tool to further agendas or silence your opposition. I do not care how terrible a
thing happens, stripping rights away from another person simply because you disagree with them or find their words offensive and hurtful ...is about
as low as you can get.
When this terrible thing happened, I spent the first couple of days wondering, asking questions and pondering possibilities. It was my personal way
of dealing with it...it was MY coping mechanism. Since that time I have dropped out of the conversations...I choose not to dwell on it anymore.
But back on topic. If someone's words or speech offends or upsets you...then do not listen to or read them...it is really that simple. As a
Libertarian, I will not sit back quietly while others attempt more and more controls and will use anything as justification....Dirty, rotten,
scoundrels that will never let a tragedy go to waste...
