Republican Loose Cannon Claims No Free Speech

Over the past 6 years Republican lawmakers have acted and legislated as though they see the First Amendment as something with which to wipe their asses, but this is beyond outrageous:

Rep. Chris Cannon (R-UT) issued a startling rebuke to the NASA official [during hearings on how BushCo. appointees have censored scientific papers on Global Warming], disputing his assertion that taxpayer-funded scientists are entitled to speak freely.

"Free speech is not a simple thing and is subject to and directed by policy,"
The voters of Utah need to fire Mr. Cannon.

From one of his namesake weapons.

Back to the 15th Century.

Where he'd obviously be more comfortable.
