    Reasonable restrictions

    The amount of phone calls, email, junk mail, flyers etc out there is crazy. All this free speech is overwhelming. I propose reasonable restrictions on all this speech. Does anyone really need a high speed printer? The only printers anybody reasonably needs is a movable type printer like Franklin used at the time of the revolution. No one really needs more than 10 texts per day. Besides, only professional like reporters and politicians can be trusted with so much free speech.

    Those XL ink cartridges for ink jets need to be regulated too. You can print almost 700 pages with one and not have to switch ccartridges. Having to change an ink cartridge might save one person a day from having to read a nutty anti letter.

    I think we could improve things by limiting elected officials to a thousand words a month.

    The tele-marketing is especially dangerous.
    It causes interruptions to my day, thereby creating sleep deprivation + distraction...I could lose my job.
    If I lose my job, I might become despondent and do something stupid.
    If I do something stupid, I might go to jail.
    If I go to jail, I will cause a strain on the system while your tax dollars support me...

    If...Oh; never mind..if I lose my job I'll just getz meez sum a' dem Obama bucks..Then I'll call YOU wit my free Obama phone.

    Think about the fact that the 2A right to BEAR (i.e.carry) arms is the ONLY civil liberty in which (most states) you are required to apply for and pay for a PERMIT in order to exercise. And some are now proposing a TAX on firearms to own them. I propose 2 additional amendments:

    1) Whatever proposal to limit ANY civil liberty has to be imposed on ALL civil liberties equally.

    2) Whatever laws the Federal and/or State government impose on the citizens they also have to abide. They have to abide by the same rules for social security, healthcare, and firearms as what they impose on us.

    We do have restrictions on speech already. There are for example laws against spamming. There are Do Not Call lists. There are plenty of laws against threats, slander.

    Don't confuse the word "reasonable" with "arbitrary."

    When talking about gun control, 'reasonable' and 'restriction' do not fit in the same sentence.

    Let's compare the current state of the 2A as compared to applying the same restriction on the 1st. You can own a gun in your home but if you carry it out in public you have to apply and pay for a permit. Apply this to you can speak freely in your house but if you speak in public you have to apply for and obtain a permit (and possibly be limited to 7 or 10 words). Same with exercising your religion of choice and right to assemble. There would be outrage in the streets, lawsuits by the ACLU. You would the the ACLU would be all over protecting ALL civil liberties. Once the govt gets the taste in their mouths that they can restrict one civil liberty what makes anyone think they will stop there.

    Ah, but you see - guns kill. Words don't.

    (Never mind words written by people like Marx, Lenin, Hitler, and Mao - which led to the slaughter of millions upon millions.)

    Re: Reasonable restrictions

    Egalitarian society has no need for Constitutions. The one is no more or less equal than the other or the many - at least within whatever tolerance is built in by social and anti-social feedback.

    Stratfied society, however, gives need to Constitutions having given admonition to the injustice and arrogance of men - the pursuit of happiness. What ever tolerance is built into the system will be found out one way or another just like always.
    There is a solution but we are not Jedi... not yet.
