Quote of the Day

...what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born? ~ William Butler Yeats

There are times when it's really difficult for me to be a firm advocate of free speech.

Free speech isn't free unless it's uncomfortable, whether it's calling Bush Hitler, or Obama a Kenyan or worse. If the KKK doesn't have the right to speak, then neither do I, as much as I revile what they say. It appears we no longer believe "I may hate what you say but I will fight to the death for your right to say it."

There's free speech...and then there's the advocating of armed insurrection, the murder of police officers and the assassination of the President and members of Congress--for no reason other than your candidate lost the election.

Prescient fellow, Yeats.
