Ah...sure...that makes sense. :confused:

I know I sound like quite the doomsayer here some times, but I really do feel that we are in some strange and scary times. Not in every aspect, there is a lot of hope out there too. But so many basic freedoms are being attacked on all sides. Don't give up those things that soooo many have made great sacrifice, and many have died, to provide and protect. Freedom of speech is the cornerstone of a free society. Without the right to express yourself free of the fear of persecution, you are only a stones throw from a fascist state. It's not that much of leap to see that once you lose that right, it won't before long before you are no longer allowed to read, write, sing or play what you want.
