Default Constitutional rights?????

What happened to freedom of speech? Maybe if I piss and moan enough here enough we can close this thread as well. Seems we cant speak our minds about certain things. If people dont like the consequences of thier actions, maybe they should reevaluate what they do.


...maybe this is my "Pursuit of Happiness". No, Im sure I lost that right as well.

Look closer at the Constitution...

FREEDOM of SPEECH is a Right, but it does not allow you to speak freely on PRIVATE PROPERTY

The owner and moderators of this PRIVATELY OWNED site, have rights to "moderate", "censor", "delete", and even BAN people at thier free will.

YOU have the right to create your OWN site...and for the most part, saw WHAT you want!!

This site is like a private club. STFU with that tired argument, it doesn't apply to message boards, nor should it.

Oh I just love constitutional battles.

The First Ammendment of the Constitution prohibits the government from censoring our speech. It was aimed at political speech but now includes much more.

So under the First Ammendment you are perfectly free to start your own website and rant and rave all you want. It does not give you the right to come on someone else's website and do the same.

Just a thought, but if you want a topic dedicated to you where things can get out of hand then maybe you'd be calling for it to be closed?

Freedom of speech protects you from the government not private entities.

If I stood on your front lawn with a sigh that read "You're a complete and total moron" would you not be able to tell me to leave because you're infringing on my freedom of speech?

If you picked up the tab at the strip joint, you would be protected too.

Thats fine for the mods to delete anything they want...not talking about them directly. I'm talking about wining mofo's that stick up for other people, and send numerous complaints to the moderators to delete the post. You have the right NOT to "click" on any thread, just like the rest of us have the right to say what is on our minds. This "private club" requires memebership, which we are clearly members of. If this was some average joe, and not someone that gave a motor or 2 away, then this wouldnt even be an issue. But, again, I am a member of this "community" and I have the right to say whats on my mind. Like it or not. Ban me, delete me, cancel my precious membership as I will make it though life with out the womanly gosip that people get pissy over.

Thats ok, anyone can distort the meanings of our constitution, that almost means nothing anymore anyways. Time for Turkey and family. Yes, even a piece of Shit like me has family. Ooops I said SHIT. Maybe I will get banned from here permanently. But thats ok. At least my pursiut of happiness can not be taken away.

should ban whiners too, especially if someone posts something negative, or not popular they automatically think you made a double handle or something

Itís really sad that Americans live in a country that gives them an amazing amount of freedom, but so many are such morons that they don't even bother learning the rights that our great forefathers laid out for them.

If you have a kid, do them a favor; make sure they donít flunk civics class like you did.

I see the same ignorant comment by equally ignorant posters on just about every board Iím a member of. Itís kind of sad.
