  •  Frankly, that a 'public safety' exception even (5+ / 0-)

    exists bothers me. Either we all have a right or we have a set of table scraps our overlords bestow upon us.  If we allow ourselves to be suckered into accepting a violation of a 'right' even as applied to one who is - allegedly - among the most despicable of us,we accept that it is not a 'right' at all.

    How many of you that will just grit your teeth and accept that those sons a' bitches from the WBC have every right to protest at the funerals for the Sandy Hook children are content with this 'public safety' violation?

      As for the WBC, they don't have every right to protest the funerals of the Sandy Hook families. By that same token, those of us who aren't part of the Fred Phelps Family Cult have the right to tell them just where they can stick their protests.

        their vile actions, but we can't prevent them from exercising their rights.  The same could have been said of our Miranda rights until Bush the Lesser and the Cowardly Congress appeared a dozen years ago.
