Using attorney Phelps reasoning, that attacking the dead soldier at his funeral, was a sign of free speech , let's see see her use that argument in defending KKK ( clan ) members in a march through the black section of north Philly. Some how I think common sense would say that both things are like shouting "fire " in a crowded movie theater. You may have that right , but you might be less than safe in doing so.

Can't we find out about next Soldiers funeral here in town that they plan on disgracing?? and if so cannot we get a group to go there as well and "apply" a little good ol' American common sense to them. Let them know what they are doing has consequences? I will be there for sure to help with a greeting.

HE THAT HATH NO SIN SHALL CAST THE FIRST STONE!!!!!!!!!!

You are not to pass judgment!!!!!! That in it's self is a sin. They will one day meet their maker. They alone will be accountable for their actions. It will be a glorious day when each one of them meet our almighty. MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON THEIR SOULS!!!!!!!!

I just finished reading their brief and after reading the first line of this brief I realize this lawyer is as wacky as the rest of her cult. She starts off stating Mr. Snyder was a public figure, Da it dosen't take a lot to know that the courts have already defined the difference in private vs public figure, Mr. Snyder may be a public figure now but that is because they made him one , that's not how it works. I bet they have lost all credability with the justices after the first paragraph. She also states Mr. Snyder knew they were there but did not see or hear from them, does she think the court will say he should have left his sons body to go see what they were up to. This is not about free speech its about harrasment. I pity this country if the Supreme Court says this is free speech. Some one is going to get hurt if this is not stoped.

Anonymous does not have permission to touch my male member. Anonymous is controlling too may social networking sites with hacking, harassment and extortion. Look at what they've don to Topix in the last week! Anonymous homosexuals have increased the number of male rapes in our armed forces, according to new studies by the Pentagon. Whenever anyone has the slightest suspicion of someone being associated with Anonymous, they should immediately turn all trace information over to the FBI's cyber security investigators. Imprison Anonymous members and the number of male rapes in the military will plummet.

"Keep & Bear" means own and carry for a day such as today with a Kenyan-born, Moslem in our White Lying is Obama's native-tongue just like his father...the devil. Moslems worship death. If they can't find an infidel to kill they will kill another Moslem even if it is a family member.
Allah is just another name for Satan. Together with Antichrist Obama & False Prophet Pope Francis they form the unholy trinity of these last days. Get ready for martial-law and get ready for The Rapture!
The False Prophet(Pope Francis) will soon require even atheists to worship the Antichrist(BHO) after he gets his fatal-blow and becomes indwelt by Satan. You will have to accept the Mark(RFID-chip called "Digital Angel") living in their socialistic(for most except the 1%) New World Order. The good news is Jesus is coming back for His bride. Kenyan-born, gay, commie, son of a porn-star, less than half-black, Moslem Obama is destined for the lake of fire. That lesbian, commie, witch Hellary belongs in prison. Ephesians 6:12
