    The term "constitution free zone" was new to me. It seems to refer to the area near the border where people are stopped at random in a way that should be unconstitutional. It seems quite a few of us live in Constitution free zones.

    constitution free zones;

    Dittohead not! did the research on those. Thanks. And here's a graphic showing exactly where the Constitution-free zones are.

    If anybody read the comments at the end of the article you will notice that the people were really pissed at the judge.

    The judge even admitted in his vacating order that the virginia constitution would not hold up his decision.

This anti-free speech should be sinking in about now MM.
    How about how Bush used the FCC to censor content instead of being a regulatory agency? After Janet Jackson's nipple slip at the Super Bowl, any old lady who called in and complained about anything they didn't like on tv could get those affiliate stations fined big bucks for airing something "offensive" to anyone. That's just as much anti-free speech as the Fairness Doctrine is.

    Besides, I wouldn't mind it if we had more money for better Public Broadcasting. However, I'd want more educational shows for children and teenagers. The only thing on tv for them to watch are cartoons that just want to sell toys and commercials.

    This should help put your mind at ease regarding the so called "fairness doctrine."

    As the president stated during the campaign, he does not believe the Fairness Doctrine should be reinstated," White House spokesman Ben LaBolt told FOXNews.com.
    As for that "Constitution free zone", now that's right up there with the Patriot Act and asset forfeiture on the list of attacks on basic liberties. I'm not sure how we can support the idea of a "free speech zone" either. I thought he whole country was a free speech zone.

    Amen to that. I never heard of free speech zones until it was mentioned on this thread. Talk about destroying the Constitution. Incidentally, I didn't care for the restriction imposed by the Bush administration's Patriot Act, either. I argued constantly against this policy. It's that saying: If you give up your freedom for security, soon you will have neither.

    Getting back to Norfolk, I think Judge Poston is an elected judge, and he's worried now about being re-elected. I guess his partisanship got in the way of his knowledge of the law. Then again, the way politicians work these days, none of them seem to know the law or care, either way.

    Nobody has stopped clear cutting where I live. I am a tree-hugger from way back, but I'm still a conservative too. That's where I move away from a lot of conservatives regarding destroying trees. That's all I'm going to say lest Captain Courtesy come in and warn me about treetrolling.

    I wonder what Burfoot is doing right now that his favorite judge has vacated his ruling? Does Burfoot still think he has a case?
