The Brett Kimberlin Saga:

Follow this link to my BLOCKBUSTER STORY of how Brett Kimberlin, a convicted terrorist and perjurer, attempted to frame me for a crime, and then got me arrested for blogging when I exposed that misconduct to the world. That sounds like an incredible claim, but I provide primary documents and video evidence proving that he did this. And if you are moved by this story to provide a little help to myself and other victims of Mr. Kimberlin’s intimidation, such as Robert Stacy McCain, you can donate at the PayPal buttons on the right. And I thank everyone who has done so, and will do so.

Freedom of Speech in Mexico

There is an interesting, little known fact about Mexican law.  The AFP explains that:

Under Mexican law, permission is required for the use of patriotic symbols such as the flag or national anthem. Violators face fines of up to 5,000 dollars.

And of course this rule has been applied neutrally, right?  Well, maybe not:

MTV cancelled the Mexican broadcast of an episode of the "South Park" cartoon featuring President Felipe Calderon because it lacked permission to show the Mexican flag, a spokesman said Wednesday.

I am sure the fact that they couldn’t get permission to show the flag had nothing to do with the fact that they were mocking the President.

Ah, but hey liberals.  None of this is a problem.  You see MTV is owned by Viacom, which is a corporation, so this is the suppression of corporate speech, so everything is okay, right?  Right?

Or are we going to recognize that declaring that no corporation has free speech rights is kind of, you know, dangerous?
