During colonial times in America, if you wanted to convince or inform people about some issue that you considered important, you went to the local printer and got some pamphlets printed. You then handed them out, read them to anybody that was interested, nailed them to the town bulletin board, or the nearest tree. The first amendment was specifically written to protect this type of activity and the writers or "pamphleteers".Who Links Here

I'm Going To Ask Some Very Rude Questions...
While reading Rush Limbaugh's site, I came across this:
"Well, that's the stark choice, confronting Shannon Thomas, 21, a pre-skrool teacher in southeastern Massachusetts. Her employer, the Boys and Girls Club of Taunton agreed to hold her job for about six weeks after her June 18th due date, but didn't offer any paid maternity leave. 'My rent, my food, the hospital, those costs aren't going to go away,' she said. So she quit. She quit her $500 a week job three weeks ago and applied for state welfare assistance.
Excuse me, don't you have a husband?
How about the father of your child kicking in some money for the expenses?
Do you know who he is?
Why should the taxpayers have to pay for your irresponsibility?
Yep, that's right, I'm being judgemental. I have a right to be since I'm one of the taxpayers who will have to pay for this young women's stupid behaviour.
