Saving Free Speech


There’s a tale you’re not seeing on the MSM or in much of the blogsphere.  Thirteen (count ’em) Thirteen Democratic Senators folded to Barack Obama’s machine and stood up to destroy the First Amendment.

Akaka (D-HI)
Brown (D-OH)
Burris (D-IL)
Cardin (D-MD)
Gillibrand (D-NY)
Harkin (D-IA)
Lautenberg (D-NJ)
Leahy (D-VT)
Mikulski (D-MD)
Reed (D-RI)
Reid (D-NV)
Schumer (D-NY)
Whitehouse (D-RI)

Can you believe it?  Do you see Al Franken’s name on this list?

While there are thirteen (an ironic number) Democrats in the Senate who don’t give a rip about freedom, at least there are a large number of Democrats who do still care about the First Amendment.  Would you believe Al Franken is one of them?  I thought Barack Obama considered him a slam dunk!

Hyscience is one of the few sources covering this amazing story.

Sam Brownback inserted a amendment into the Defense Appropriation Bill demanding that:

To clarify that the amendment shall not be construed or applied to infringe on First Amendment rights.”

I can’t believe IT PASSED!
