There has never been such a thing as freedom of speech in America. In order to speak freely, you first had to have access to a printing press, a newspaper, a radio or a TV station. And if you could gain access you then you had to get past the editors of the media. Only an elite group of people ever did? You had the articulate and well-behaved representatives of ordinary people. But ordinary people themselves never had a chance to speak publicly and openly.
Not until now that is. Today we have the internet revolution, that is led by a ragtag army of bloggers? It has given us all a chance to be irreverent, blasphemous, and ungrammatical in public. We can reveal secrets, blow whistles, spill beans, speak our minds, or just make stuff up. (hopefully NOT)
Of course the old elites donít like it, actually they really, really hate it. Blogs are shut down left and right, and bloggers are silenced, reprimanded and fired from their jobs. Suddenly modern liberal society reveals a repressive face few of us knew existed.
Should we behave ourselves? Should we fall silent? HELL NO! Letís call them on their hypocrisy and stupidity. Letís demand that modern liberal society lives by the principles it claims to embrace. Bloggers of the world, unite! Fire up your keyboard and blogs! You have nothing to lose but your gags!

I’ve been drinking this since I was a kid. Because I’m a diabetic I don’t drink one except every 4 months or so.
This is a trident maple that I’ve grown from seed. It’s about ready to go dormant for the year and I’m going to re-pot it. Gorgeous trees, grown in zone 8 and I’m in a zone 9 so I’m going to have to grow it in the shady of other trees.
