Because this wild-eyed crap isn’t seeming so off the wall all of a sudden, is it?
Not at all. If 0bama is re-elected, Free Republic might/probably will be, banned/shut down.
We need other ways to communicate.
Learn to use a HAM radio! Call your local emergency management office and ask them when they hold licensing classes. They're usually only $20 for the book, the technician exam is incredibly easy, and you'll learn the basics of using the airwaves to communicate. The government might be able to hunt down a fixed broadcast signal with the right tools, but any man on the run with an HT (handy-talkie) is virtually impossible to silence. They can listen, but they can't shut it down (like a cell phone, for instance).
There's a LOT of talk about revolution. Moreso than I remember under Bush. I wonder if the Left was so unctuous during Bush. But then I don't wonder if they had the armament to effect anything more than a rally of stinky hippies.
On an unrelated note, does anyone find it comical that Van Jones said that blacks would still overwhelmingly vote for Obama even if he came out as gay? Oh the tragic comedy!
