    Well, the speakers were pretty on-point. The slogans etc. aren't my thing but at least they were out there expressing their discontent. It beats bottling it up. What's disappointing is CNN going out of their way to abandon the standard of objective journalism and alienate more viewers. If that reporter was my employee, she would have been fired.

    And what happens next, you ask?

    Well, next, nothing will happen, is what.

    Obama will continue to steal money and spend twice what he grabs, Congress will continue to be idiots, and the press will cheer on the Messiah.

    In May, California will have a special election with 7 items on the ballot for the voters to decide. Those items are basically the spending that was compromised out of the state budget.

    I expect the voters in California to enthusiastically pass these ridiculous measures and otherwise do the things they know they need to do if California is going to hurry up and go into bankruptcy as quickly as possible. Well, actually, they're stupid and they don't know that...the people that do know that will be voting "no", like me.

    California can't go bankrupt. They're too big to fail.

    Unless of course if they use their freedom of speech to burn the American flag, then you are against them right?

    Burning flags insults huge numbers of people, virtually entire nations. Regardless of what symbolism they assign to the flag burning, many if not most people will perceive it as attack against them personally. That's why you'll never see me burn a flag, even those of countries with regimes and policies I disagree with immensely.

    Why are you trying to throw the thread off topic?

    The point being you are only for the freedom of speech when you agree with it.

    Because you like others are only for freedom of speech when you agree with that speech.

    So you admit to being off topic purposefully?
