    Hey, we agree!

    No it isn't. It's for everyone, but Obama, Pelosi, and Reid are determined to destroy it.

    You have got to be kidding. How desperately pathetic can you get?
    But Obama acts like we don't have the right to criticize him.

    He does? When?

    Maybe he just, like, disagrees with the criticism?

    When he tries to use his government power to silence critics, let us know. Until then, this is just another lame, desperate, non-issue.

    Looks like this includes Houston. I no wonder my Ron Paul bumper sticker pisses everyone off. Yea, that's right. I still have it on my car. LOL.

    Here's a good gag. Dress up like a bum, go to the corner of Main and Rusk in downtown Houston, and ask people for "Spare Constitution, please".

    Circuit Court Judge Charles E. Poston ordered an immediate removal of the website May4thCounts.com, stating that other legal action "is not adequate under the particular circumstances of this case."

    GoDaddy.com, the site's host, removed the content later in the day.

    The website appeared last week, about a month before City Council elections. Burfoot, a target of the website, brought the suit in Circuit Court."

    This is my hometown. I am ashamed of it. Talk about suppression of free speech combined with ugly politics! This story should go national soon.
    There needs to be an appeal. The appellete court will overturn the ruling of a dishonest judge who is obviously in burfoot's pocket.

    Then Burfoot and his judge butt-buddy can be sued for infringing on the site author's 1st Amendment rights.

    It's time for that judge to be disbarred and removed from office.
