can't find much about this, but looks like a good idea #liberty #map #crypto #freedom


 
I endorse it. I think it was correct. Contrary to what many have said, it sought to outlaw neither prayer nor belief in god. In a pluralistic society such as ours, who is to determine what prayer shall be spoken and by whom? Legally, constitutionally or otherwise, the state certainly has no such right.

Persecution for the expression of opinions seems to me perfectly logical. If you have no doubt of your premises or your power, and want a certain result with all your heart, you naturally express your wishes in law, and sweep away all opposition. To allow opposition by speech seems to indicate that you think the speech impotent, as when a man says that he has squared the circle, or that you do not care wholeheartedly for the result, or that you doubt either your power or your premises.

But when men have realized that time has upset many fighting faiths, they may come to believe even more than they believe the very foundations of their own conduct that the ultimate good desired is better reached by free trade in ideas — that the best test of truth is the power of the thought to get itself accepted in the competition of the market, and that truth is the only ground upon which their wishes safely can be carried out.

That, at any rate, is the theory of our Constitution. It is an experiment, as all life is an experiment. Every year, if not every day, we hav

why you gotta be so #controlling, Dems? Here's their plan, in case you can't figure it out on your own:
  • "health warning" label on guns. No "sane" person would violate a health warning....
  • if you own a gun in spite of the warning, you must have #mental issues (not sane)
  • #redflag law: take away the #guns from the insane people who own guns
Illinois Democrats: exporting their superb record on gun safety to everywhere since whenever. #sarcasm

Georgia approves of bill to introduce board to rule over ethics of journalism


(Is it too surprising that out of all, five Republican lawmakers introduced such a bill to create a board which, coincidentally, preferably Republican lawmakers are going to occupy, to rule what are the ethics of journalism? In times in which Trump declared the Free Press to be the enemy of the people? If you asked me, the sole threat to the First Amendment are people who try to control the Free Press, no matter in which way. It's not the haunting ghost of Political Correctness some people fear to watch over them, but a state that tries to control what you are allowed to hear and read, and what not. This is what we seem to currently experience in the ruby-red state of Georgia, ruled by a man they call Brian Kemp. Thanks a lot for your listening.)
The Journalism Ethics Board, described in the bill as an “independent body,” would be based at the University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism. The University System of Georgia’s chance

New Zealand threatens 10 years in prison for "possessing" the Christchurch shooting video!

The absolute state of #censorship – the #Vatican is probably putting it on its list of #ForbiddenBooks as well!





New Zealand authorities have reminded citizens that they face up to 10 years in prison for "knowingly" possessing a copy of the New Zealand mosque shooting video - and up to 14 years in prison for sharing it. Corporations (such as web hosts) face an additional $200,000 ($137,000 US) fine under the same law…

Tensions are high regarding vaccines lately.

Due to a #measles #outbreak in the United States, frightened people are pushing an #agenda to take an important #medical decision out of the hands of parents. They’re calling for federally mandated #vaccines. They’re calling for the shaming of #parents who have chosen not to vaccinate their #children.

Decathlon removes sport hijab after fierce criticism


"We are effectively taking the decision to not sell this product in France for now," Decathlon official Xavier Rivoire told the RTL broadcaster, despite defending to AFP earlier the company's goal to "make sport accessible to all women in the world."

French retailer Decathlon already sells the runner's hijab in its stores in Morocco, and had planned to introduce the garment to France in the coming weeks.

Such a product is "not forbidden by law," Health Minister Agnes Buzyn responded on RTL, but "it is a vision of women that I do not share. I would have preferred that a French brand not promote the veil."

NRA defaming Democratic president candidates and victims of gun violence alike


Standing behind Pelosi in the photo is Rep. Lucy McBath, whose 17-year-old son, Jordan, was gunned down at a Jacksonville gas station when 45-year-old Michael David Dunn pulled up next to the car Jordan was in with his friends and fired on the teens because he felt their music was too loud; and former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot in the head in 2011 during an assassination attempt by Jared Lee Loughner, whose murder spree that day killed six and wounded 18 others.

The FBI affidavit listed the guns and accessories Hasson has purchased over the last two years to carry out the planned attack, and specifically noted the purchases Hasson made directly from the NRA Range gun store, inside the headquarters of the NRA.

I'm interested in the 50K ft view of things more than most seem to be. I'm fascinated by the psychology of those who want to control others, i.e. #Authoritarians.

Seems they have a desperation to surrender their autonomy and agency as though it's the most dangerous thing they can imagine. Please, take my responsibility, my choice, my individual #liberty. Like slaves who yern for their chains.

Why? Do they not trust themselves? Are they afraid of what they may do if set free?

Strange.
