Facebook has decided to start censoring “hate speech.” I cannot think of an issue that so well illustrates the value of the Constitution.

Now, to be honest, Facebook is a commercial enterprise and has every right to censor it’s content. Just as its subscribers have every right to find some other social media outlet that has a better grasp of the necessity of the public discourse, which, by nature, must be free from restriction.

But, what Facebook has decided is that it wants to control the debate, allowing one side to freely express itself and restricting the other side. It has chosen to be a megaphone rather than a telephone. It wants to allow others to speak to us, but will not allow us to speak to them. To me, that is a really poor business model, but that is what they have chosen to do. It is a poor business model, because if they were intellectually honest, they would wind up disposing of nearly all of their accounts save for the Mother Teresas of the world.

This is exactly the sort of behavior exhibited by those who must not be trusted with leadership. They are incapable of responsible use of power. To them, if they can silence those with whom they disagree, they will. That is not the act of someone who understands America.

The Constitution protects free speech. Now, there was a reason that speech was protected, but those in control of Facebook have never read the Federalist Papers or even the Anti-Federalist Papers. They have never read Miracle in Philadelphia, or they would understand the arguments behind an amendment that protected free speech. Trust me, there were no political figures of the time that did not suffer greatly from pamphlets written by their political enemies, but even in the heat of those political battles, none suggested that the First Amendment be abolished, because they were educated men, not Facebook petty tyrants.

It seems like ever since Barack Obama made hating America popular, every little tyrant with the slightest amount of power has exercised it against freedom. Facebook is just the latest example, following the IRS targeting of conservative organizations, PayPal’s suspension of accounts (usually those of a conservative nature, like mine) and etc.

This is a narrowing of the discourse, that’s all. This is how genocides are started: identify, target, restrict, censor, imprison and slaughter. The first act of a tyrant is to vilify a particular race or political sect. Can you tell the difference between a Sunni and a Shiite? They can and they were willing to kill each other over what small differences there are.

“Liz Warren is Obama with conviction.”  “Liz Warren is Hillary without the baggage.”  Actually, the Massachusetts senator is a progressive firebrand whose family issues could cause serious problems for the country.  She is dynamic, she has fire in her belly and she hates — absolutely hates – banks.

Why does Liz Warren hate the banks? It’s personal — bankers were mean to her “Daddy.” When Elizabeth Warren was 12 years old, a bank repossessed one of the family’s two cars. Because the bank threatened to take the Warren’s home, too, and because her father was out of work, her mother needed to bring in some desperately-needed money. She weepily struggled into a too-tight black dress, hobbled to Sears, Roebuck on uncomfortable high heels, and got her first-ever job. It was, as Warren recounts in her memoir, the day she grew up.

Her father, whom she calls “Daddy” throughout A Fighting Chance was a serial flop who ultimately worked as a maintenance man “cleaning up around an apartment building” after he had lost his sales job with Montgomery Ward. Earlier in his life he had failed to enlist as a fighter pilot in World War II. After the war he “desperately wanted a job flying” as a commercial pilot, but failed at that, too.

In the 1950s, Warren relates, her parents moved back to their home town, but her grandfather said “my daddy no longer had a job in the family store.”  Afterwards, Warren’s father moved “from one job to another,” hauling the growing family of four children all over Oklahoma. Warren’s parents were drinking heavily, fighting constantly. This was Elizabeth Warren’s coming of age.

Warren eventually became a law professor and agreed to teach a class on bankruptcy law. She was driven to the field, as she recounts, searching for why people ended up in bankruptcy court. “I was looking for an answer to a question I couldn’t quite ask out loud, maybe because it was a little too personal.”

This is the root cause of Elizabeth Warren’s lifetime conviction that banks (and, more broadly, businesses) are out to trick and cheat average hard-working families. The childhood fear of poverty not only distorted Warren’s views on private enterprise, but keeps Warren from borrowing money herself. The most recent review of her finances shows that she and her husband are one percenters, holding assets of more than $5 million, but that they owe not a dollar of debt.

Warren, like President Obama, believes the deck is stacked against the middle class. She belittles the contributions of business owners, and tells them “part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.”  To level the playing field, she wants higher taxes and more and better regulations – and not just on banks. Not only is the language achingly clichéd, the approach is – after two terms of unchecked regulatory spread – exceedingly dangerous.

A year ago, the Brookings Institute published a study on entrepreneurship and concluded, “Dynamism is slowing down. Business churning and new firm formations have been on a persistent decline during the last few decades, and the pace of net job creation has been subdued.” The drop has been widespread, according to the authors, even in high tech. They caution that if left unchecked, the downturn “implies a continuation of slow growth for the indefinite future.”

The drop in entrepreneurship has accelerated since 2006 – certainly as a result of the financial crisis, when lending dried up for all but those with the best credit scores – but doubtless also because of the anti-business rhethoric and regulation flowing so freely from the Obama White House.

Not all of our competitors have experienced a similar decline. According to Gallup, the U.S. now ranks 12th among developed nations in business startup activity, behind Hungary, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Israel and Italy. It is especially alarming that for the first time in 35 years, American business deaths exceed business births.

Communists call for revolution at Ferguson protest.

It’s no secret that some of those fomenting the riots and protests over the shooting death of Michael Brown are Communists. A Vine video posted on Twitchy Saturday shows protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, openly calling for a Communist revolution in America.

“The only solution is a Communist revolution,” protesters are heard chanting. Pictures posted at Twitchy also show protesters holding signs saying “racist cops” must be “smashed” with a Communist revolution.

Paul Hampel, a reporter with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, said on Twitter that Communist Party members led Friday night’s protest while disseminating literature for their cause. “A century later,” he said in another tweet, “a Trotsky-esque plea toward National Guard troops: ‘turn the guns around and shoot the bosses down.'”

Older protesters, he said, made references to Kent State, the site of a protest in Ohio where anti-Vietnam War demonstrators were killed. Hampel also posted several Vine videos to his Twitter feed, and said that 15 people were arrested, citing Dept. of Public Safety spokesman Mike O’Connell.

Ya think there was just a bit of “outside influence” in Ferguson?

WTF does a Communist revolution have to do with a cop shooting Mr. Brown,who was determined to have been a thug? A “kid” with a juvenile record that included a murder case,who was seen on video grabbing a store owner by the throat,and pushing him into a display rack-shortly before his altercation with the Ferguson PD that resulted in his death.

Whether you believe the cop-or the kid who was with Mr. Brown-it takes some serious mental gymnastics to reach the conclusion that the solution to Brown being shot by police is a Communist revolution.

The Communist party members who were present were attempting to recruit new commie members among the protesters.

Could be they had just a little to do with stepping up the violence in Ferguson as well,as the resulting police response goes hand on hand with the “we are oppressed by the rich” etc. rhetoric.

Members of the Communist party need to be extirpated from American soil-all of them-every. single. one.

Communism is diametrically opposed to rightful liberty,the Constitution,Bill of Rights,and any freedoms the American people have left.

Communism has no place in a free country-nor do Communists-every single communist needs to be removed from the face of the earth.

These people are entrenched in American government,politics,and in the leftist indoctrination centers our public schools and universities have become.

Any time you wonder where young people get the insane ideas they have-look at who is teaching them,look real close,and you find one thing in every school- A majority of far left teachers and professors.

Those teachers and professors ARE the far left radicals from the ’60’s.

They all have tenure,and can not be fired. They give lectures on how gun owners,Republicans,pro-life people,Christians,conservatives,those who believe in the Constitution,support Rightful Liberty,smaller government,lower taxes,oppose the welfare state,and the police state are the “enemy”.

They are brainwashing your kids-following the plans they have been following since the 50’s and 60’s-and they are achieving their goals.

The current admin is full of leftover 60’s radicals-or was-many are gone now,but they did their damage.many more are still on the .gov inc. payroll,busy enacting regulations that expand government powers,take away our rights,raise or taxes,and control what we can and can not do on our own property.

Look at the latest EPA regs-the most costly regulation in history-brought to you by the enviro-nazis left over from the 60’s and 70’s.

Lisa Jackson,last EPA admin. was a self described environmental extremist,the current sack of excrement,Gina McCarthy is even worse.

This is what happens when socialists,leftists and communists infiltrate schools and government.

Rights and freedom disappear.
