Re: “Congressman's LR school appearance canceled after complaints

Hill has not earned the right to sway 5th graders. Would his supporters be running for free speech cover if some one wanted to speak about sex education?

Re: “Freedom From Religion Foundation on monument destruction

Of course many people will become angry when someone else's beliefs are being shoved down their throats! Space on capital grounds should be shared equally by all faiths and non faiths. But then again most religious that I know don't think so -- their way or no way.

Re: “Demonstrators pay a call on French Hill

As tyrants take control of democracies, they typically:
1. Exaggerate their mandate to governclaiming, for example, that they won an election by a landslide even after losing the popular vote.
2. Repeatedly claim massive voter fraud in the absence of any evidence, in order to restrict voting in subsequent elections.
3. Call anyone who opposes them enemies.
4. Turn the public against journalists or media outlets that criticize them, calling them "deceitful and scum.
5. Hold few if any press conferences, preferring to communicate with the public directly through mass rallies and unfiltered statements.
6. Tell the public big lies, causing them to doubt the truth and to believe fictions that support the tyrants goals.
Lies. This Is How Tyranny Begins
7. Blame economic stresses on immigrants or racial or religious minorities, and foment public bias and even violence against them.
8. Attribute acts of domestic violence to enemies within, and use such events as excuses to beef up internal security and limit civil liberties.
9. Threaten mass deportations, registries of religious minorities and the banning of refugees.
10. Seek to eliminate or reduce the influence of competing centers of power, such as labor unions and opposition parties.
11. Appoint family members to high positions of authority.
12. Surround themselves with their own personal security forces rather than security details accountable to the public.
13. Put generals into top civilian posts.
14. Make personal alliances with foreign dictators.
15. Draw no distinction between personal property and public property, profiteering from their public office.
Consider yourself warned.
