freedom of speech? It sounds more like freedom from speech.

Another great article; though this one really makes me mad. Of course, what can you expect but repression and essentially, revocation of the first amendment from this criminal administration--especially when it's ganged up with the only other superpower left--and one that's always been known for its human rights violations?

See, that's where I'm ethically torn. You should always show respect to a leader. They have difficult jobs and make decisions none of us would ever possibly fathom.

On the other hand, it was the leader of China, and I don't think the way to handle the situation is to use Chinese-style practices of law.

What's next, torture, expulsion?
