    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.
    Go here to read what was on the website....

    City of Norfolk Vice Mayor Anthony Burfoot is Corrupt. Norfolk needs a change!

    If you have taken any courses in debating, you would know that would be an analogy; demonstrating how far left the country has moved. If the federal government has moved left, doesn't it make sense to believe that tiny municipalities have also observed this move and since they love power, what better way to get more power than by stomping on freedom of speech?

    But you weren't making an analogy at first, were you? You were claiming that Obama was suppressing freedom of speech. Don't backtrack now.

    I'm quite aware of that, I meant Norfolk.

    Who is the CIC of the US and who pushed the Health Care Bill with his back room cajolings and promises to the Congressional holdouts? Looks like an analogy to me, especially if you check out the website supplied by American. Definitely a similarity there, wouldn't you think? Talk about backroom dealings there. Get all the night clubs closed down at Norfolk's Waterside so your favorite night club can reap all the profits. Sounds like Chicago politics at its best, wouldn't you think?

    Methinks you and I have crossed paths before on another forum, perhaps. I have always been Bicycleman, but you are incognito.

    You claimed Obama was pushing the Fairness Doctrine. You were wrong.
