The US Department of Homeland Security is Right Up There With Them
After writing my last blog item, I checked to see how the Red Envelope Day campaign n the US actually went and was surprised, but in fact not really, to read what the Homeland Security response was to the Red Envelope Campaign here.
In this campaign, people bought and sent 3 million empty red envelopes addressed to President Obama on which they printed: "This envelope represents one child who died in abortion. It is empty because that life is unable to offer anything to the world."
Seems Homeland Security thinks that Pro-life people are now Right Wing Extremists, and pose a threat to National Security.
Wow!! Nasty Right Wing Extremists. They bought 3 million red envelopes and 3 million stamps in a recession. Sounds like terrorist behaviour to me. Put about $2 million into the economy. I thought that would be a good thing, but call me silly.
So, if you disagree with the law of the land, you just need to shut up and suck it up, on either side of the border.
So, I guess that Dean Steacy was wrong when he said in testimony in the Lemire case that freedom of speech is an American Concept. Maybe it is not even an American Concept any more.
By the way, I think killing pre born babies in the womb is a bad thing, and denies them their rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in the US, Canada and anywhere else in the world.
