the larouche cult is more than a bunch of kooky ideas. they're led by a rabid antisemite who has dreams of ruling the world. unlikely, but he's willing to make lots of people suffer while he fails.

larouche, like most far right wackos, will try to coopt anything popular or progressive. the larouchies tried to infiltrate the greenparty with some success in vermont and newyork. they also rolled out the 911 truth scam during the bush years to get as many democrat dupes as possible:

"You do of course realize that this so-called 9/11 truth business is nothing more than a LaRouche-Tarpley invented red herring to draw otherwise well intended antiwar activists away from the pressing issue of the day -- ending the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq."

the are cold blooded conartists will to let people die rather than risk embarrassment:

the thing to keep in mind: no one joins a cult--they're lied to and defrauded. no one leaves a cult--they escape. the cult can't let people go; they have to spread lies and harass them. so when a cult is recruiting you KNOW they are planning to harass and stalk they very people they're inviting if they rebel.

there has to be an ordinance against fraudulent representation that can be enforced against predatory organizations that pretend to be legitimate activist groups. the council should look into that angle.

and kudos to them for not swallowing the larouche kool aid.

Do we like in the first amendment, or just like it when the group thinks like we do? Lets stop all political groups Dem, Rep., or others from setting up and talking to people.

is what the City of Chipley is about to be on. This group is legitimate. An ordinance against ALL SOLICITATION would be fine...but don't target any group just because you may disagree...because then you offend others. The First Amendment is for EVERYONE...even those with differing opinions. I personally spoke with these young men and found the information to be very enlightening. They were not aggressive...there were plenty of people that wanted to talk to them...you were free to walk past. It is not against the law to voice your opinion...yet. Let's keep it that way.

To "whatyoushouldknow", are you aware of anyone with the LaRouche PAC being arrested and convicted of "fraudulent representation"? And is the LaRouche PAC the only "predatory organization that pretends to be a legitimate activist group"? Please be careful...you wouldn't want to mislead anyone with inaccurate information.

Chipley cannot afford all of the lawsuits that are going to be filed against them.

Let's start with Ordinance #1 people. Make the City Council responsible for their own legal defence. If any one of them chooses to run his/ her mouth which results in slanderous accusations against someone who holds a sign that says "impeach Obama" let that person pay their own lawyer and not the good people of Chipley. I say impeach any council member that supports any ordinance prohibiting or limiting the First Amendment, our right, because next they'll come for you.

They were approaching folks just outside of the post office which is federal property. Folks complained of being harassed. Sounds like a typical mouth spewing far winging group.

Nowadays any nut job group claims 1st amendment rights whether you like it or not. Kudos to Council for taking a stand whether you like Obama or not.

Linda Cain is offended at just about anything and everything. The City of Chipley does not have the right to stop free speech. Just try it and see what happens.
