Up for Debate: First Amendment limits

Do you believe the First Amendment goes too far? If so, what limits would you place on it? If not, do you think it doesn't go far enough?

Only Ben would defend the TYPE of free speech; fowl, misogynistic, and racist, that we see from the likes of Juggy...

Ironically, if Juggy were to direct his "free speech" towards Bens wife in a public area, Ben would probably be the first one to punch him in the mouth...

Given what Ben has said in the past, I bet my bottom dollar that he's one of those infrastructure network nazi passive aggressive types who enjoys throwing his weight around while hiding behind the skirts of someone else's authority....

Brrrrk - Think you have your observations correct.

Excuse me, dargent7, but what do you call the language you're using on this board? Normal everyday discussion or plain old BS?

I call it modern day BS because many of this site are using it; but certain others shouldn't, eh?

Nothing like Comrade yogi uses.

Another black teen gunned down by a vengeful white man--who then claims innocence.

But I'm sure he was a certified gun carrier and we know they never ever EVER break the law.

Was the teen just standing there minding his own business? Or robbing something?

And this old man was found guilty cause it was on HIS security tape. So this is not similar to Trayvon in any way, except that it was white on black crime. But statistically, it's black on black and black on white which ranks highest.

Separation of church and state is only way to go. Most of the problems in the world are caused by one group forcing their beliefs on others. Beleive what you want and keep it to yourself.

Go Dores, Preds, Titans! Go Nashville a great place to live!
