    In Canada hate speech is not allowed, which is why these creeps would have been dragged away for such disrespectful protests. I believe in freedom of speech, but not harassment.

    People like you, are the reason that laws are so ****ed up.

    I'm waiting for all the Libbos, who support the right of the Ground Zero mosque to be built, to swoop in and support the rights of the Westboro Church, too. Where ya'll at? Hmm?

    Frankly, the Westboro people are so over the top, so vile, so hateful and disgusting, I think many may well be OK with this no matter how it plays later. It is sad any American would do what these sad people do.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Fortunately, we're not in Canada, and protection of free speech isn't based on viewpoint content.

    Can't they just make it extremely difficult to get a permit? Fees, waiting period, limit the number of permits. Permit funeral directors to erect walls in front of them...

    Actually, free speech isn't happening, in a lot of cases, if we AREN'T being offended. If that makes sense...If everything is sanitized, cleaned up, pc'ed, real free speech isn't actually happening.
    This is basically how I feel.

    These guys are the scum of the Earth, but they have a right to do this.

    Not consistently with the First Amendment, they can't.

    You are aware that constitutional rights are not privileges granted by the government? Meaning we do not need to ask permission from the government to exercise them. If their protests blocked traffic I could see getting a permit to use the street but I think these protesters use the sidewalk.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I agree that these folks are scumbag mother****ers, but so are the people building a mosque next to Ground Zero.
