    Are you against any restrictions on speech? Like yelling "fire" in a movie theatre? What criteria, if any, would you use?

    Lois Lerner is a bureaucrat; a life long civil servant. She does not hold a political job. She will not be "retained".... in the higher circles of the Democratic Party because she never worked for the Democratic Party. People are letting their imaginations run wild.... Salem Witch trials 2013.

    I see...

    So there is no company anywhere that has ever given money to a political campaign or candidate.

    I don't really know how to address an assertion like that. Our politicians have more bribes than constituents and you don't see it. This is really quite amazing.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    Yeah. You can't do that. You can yell "fire" at a public swimming pool though. All the democrats flee. It's really quite amusing.

    I have to keep remembering that I can't jump and run fast quite yet, but the surgeon is astonished at how rapidly I am recovering. I really don't have time to do otherwise, and I told him that. Too much interesting stuff to do to sit around!
