Radioactive Ass: Liberals "Frothing at the mouth" over this is one of this country's problems. If not for the "Pamphlet" that they were handing out there would be no nation to hand it out in in the first place.


First of all, there's nothing i the article that says that the victims in this situation were conservatives.

Second, any conservative or Republican who dare talk about the Constitution has some brass balls after what Bush did to it while the conservatives remain silent.

Radioactive Ass: Handing out copies of the US Constitution in the middle of the day in a crowded place doesn't even come close to meeting those types of concerns. Call me when someone knocks on your door at 2am to give you a copy and we can talk about it.



That's not likely around here. They even stop delivering pizza at midnight.


Plus, it's England.

aerojockey: I am guessing you people were the same people who were there telling the protesters at the RNC to take their little 200 square feet free speech zone 4 blocks away and like it, because it's the rules, RIGHT?????

(Free speech zones: a great idea when it's applied to people you don't agree with.)


The RNC, and the DNC for that matter, are not public institutions. They are private entities who used private funding to hold their own events on rented property (which makes it theirs for the duration of the time paid for). They actually can restrict speech on their own property and can ask that the entrances to their events be kept clear for safety reasons alone. That they also made room for protesters is a plus, that it was not front and center was not their problem. The media and everyone else knew where they were and if they actually wanted to hear their message they knew where to go to hear it. When a convention is bought and paid for in its entirety using public funds then, and only then, can you complain about free speech zones.

Not all conservatives were silent about what Bush did (or didn't do) while in office. I was pretty critical about some of the things that he did, especially the shortcuts and end runs around the Constitution. I was probably lost in the noise because liberals were making so much of it but I was not always a fan of the Bush administration and made no bones about it when I thought that they had broken the rules.

I took an oath (more than once I might add) to protect and serve the Constitution and nowhere in that oath was there a mention of a time limit as to when I could stop doing so. I took that oath seriously and still do to this day. It's as close to religion as I'll ever get.

That's just... wrong. We have a local pizza chain (A big shout out to Mr. Pizza Man) that closes from 4am to 6am but that's probably because nobody orders food at those hours (or at least not enough people to make enough money to justify staying open).

But it is a fairly large city, and not in England, so there is that.

They've got places open all night, but deliveries stop. Take that back, orders stop at midnight, delivery perhaps 12:30

These kids were 16 or younger when Bush left office.  I'm sure there is plenty to disagree with them on without blaming them for the deeds od Republicans before they were old enough to vote.

I wish that were true.

BMFPitt: brimed03: I'm sure if I cared enough I could find some comments in your history where you complain about how people and groups with deep pockets buy elections. Good to know you're no better.

Week I'm sure you couldn't, and that while looking you would find hundreds of posts defending campaign donations as speech.

/no, it isn't "free speech" when you do that, it's an open threat and legal blackmail.

That makes no sense, and if it were actually true would nullify the first part of your post.


Fortunately, the percentage of fools like you is as small as it is vocal.
