"For if men are to be precluded from offering their sentiments on a matter, which may involve the most serious and alarming consequences, that can invite the consideration of mankind, reason is of no use to us; the freedom of speech may be taken away, and, dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep, to the slaughter." -- George Washington (1732-1799), Address to the Officers of the Army, March 15, 1783

(Speaks directly to the liberal's proposal to reinstate the "fairness doctrine", doesn't it.  See:  http://www.congresscheck.com/2007/06/28/fairness-doctrine-about-as-fair-as-patriot-act-is-patriotic/)

This proposal of Hillary's would mean higher taxes, and in turn higher prices to pay for the higher taxes, and that means fewer sales and consequently fewer jobs.  Such is the economic lunacy of the liberals:  http://www.townhall.com/news/politics-elections/2008/04/02/clinton_to_announce_$7b_jobs_plan

Folks, I keep telling you that "zero tolerance" policies in schools have nothing to do with tolerance; they are about removing from the administrators the need to make judgements and decisions.  Here's another example of why "zero tolerance" rules should be abolished:  http://www2.tbo.com/content/2008/mar/29/me-mother-school-took-girls-crutches/?news-breaking
