Anyone else getting this?
Now how about them apples? Targeted by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security under the authority of the Cyber Intelligence and Protection Act (CISPA) for posts on my Facebook account that "may contain material that the U.S. Government finds threatening to national security."
In a sense, it is no wonder that bold comments and opinions on what ails America and who's responsible would be painful to liberals, atheists, socialists, atheists and others in our society and one-sided media.
But in our free society, foremost among a dwindling few on earth, it could almost be thought as criminal, scandalous and sick to discourage, alter and censor the work of an honest Christmas American who, like the national icon Paul Revere, is only striving -- but mightily and with passion, to keep the passions of modern-day patriots burning.
And this is why it is so puzzling to be aware of the efforts of anti-American citizens in the nation today -- to squelch the honest opinions of writer Verne Strickland and many others who are only exercising their right to free speech. That trend of Big Brother tactics is growing, it's vicious, and it's scary.
