Reader comments about this quote:
It's a classic.  If only today's press shared the same sentiments.  Why is it that the party of free speech is trying to shut everyone else up?

    I'm not a fan of what is currently being written or otherwise communicated in the politically correct news/government's ministering propaganda. I'm not thrilled by the lies, misdirection and ignorance perpetrated by the media/government. The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land with its evangelical propaganda is abhorrent to those that love decency, liberty, rights, individual sovereign status, etc.  BUT ! ! ! all the patrons thereof have the same rights as me  not to be infringed
