FREEDOM OF SPEECH:
Alan Isaacman
The People Vs Larry Flynt
"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you've heard a lot here today and I won't try to go back over it all. But you have to go back in that room and make some decisions and there is one thing I want to make very clear to you before you do. I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what he does. But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live. But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything. And that's not freedom. That is not freedom. So, be careful. Thank you."

"With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things." William Wordsworth

And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe—the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.

John F. Kennedy Inaugural Address

Lincoln's economic advisor Henry C. Carey explained the universal issue in his 1851 Harmony of Interests:

"Two systems are before the world.... One looks to pauperism, ignorance, depopulation, and barbarism; the other to increasing wealth, comfort, intelligence, combination of action, and civilization. One looks towards universal war; the other towards universal peace. One is the English system; the other ... the American system, for ... elevating while equalizing the condition of man throughout the world."

It never even happened, media picked it up and the mayor retracted the idea before the next pay day.

Snip: SCRANTON — Scranton’s mayor announced Wednesday that all city workers will receive full pay when they get their paychecks on Friday.

In a move that received national attention, the mayor cut employees’ pay back to minimum wage for fear there wasn’t enough money to pay them.

Scranton’s business administrator said the city has just enough in its bank account to pay employees this week, and the little bit left over will go towards some of the city’s outstanding bills, but this week’s paychecks won’t include back pay owed to city employees, and city leaders said there’s no guarantee they won’t have to slash pay again.

Well, as the comedian Pete Barbutti used to say, Scranton is where old elephants go to die.

Summary for people who don't know: during construction in the '50s or '60s they dug up these huge bones. They thought they found some old dinosaur. Paleontologists were brought in.

Then some old timer remembered and pointed to old news stories. Seems that back around 1910 or 1920 the circus came to Scranton. During its time there one of the elephants died. They didn't know what to do with the body, so they stuck it in one of the old coal mines around town and sealed it off. And everyone forgot about it until it was "discovered" 40 or 50 years later.

Piss off! The starting annual salary for a teacher here in WV is 23k. I quit the BOE after 7 years teaching with a salary of 26 k--and that's with a fucking master degree. Now I own my own biz and things are much better. But you don't know what teachers have to put up with for that shitty salary. Think about it--could you thrive on 26k per Annum?

THE UPPER-CLASS UNIONIZED workers who think they own the leaders. we have 50% of the country working to pay 50% who are either welfare,disabled, or government big-check workers. do u really think what i make a yr is equal to half a government employees paycheck???
it is simple math. we r going broke,the cost of goods is going high,and the working-class is gettin poorer. u gripe that the cops,fire dept,etc deserves high wages. then u tell me how the hell can we afford it?????????
