Taken for granted

That would be our first amendment rights - freedom of speech, freedom of the press and the right to peaceably assemble here in this country. People say stupid stuff here all the time that drives me nuts, but dang it, they have a right to say it. We have no idea what others have to go through to make their words heard... including prison.

Remind me again how China, that paragon of virtue and human rights, got to host the Olympics?

I support Amnesty International and they have a way you can show your solidarity for Chinese people who risk censure, arrest, torture and even imprisonment for peacefully speaking out online.

It’s an online Day of Protest against Internet censorship. Check it out -

It only takes a couple of minutes and the more people that join the stronger the message it sends to the Chinese Government.

Support Chinese bloggers’ right to freedom of expression and speech.
