Re: “TeaPartiers Aiming at Cohen Meet

Blisslaw: "Well congrats to all the conservatives in District 9. You made a big splash at the Town Hall Meeting with Steve Cohen today. You and the several dozen people from out of town who shouted down the speakers and stepped all over the First Amendment rights of the constituents."

Um...have you even READ the First Amendment? Here:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Sounds to me like they were doing the "petition the Government for a redress of grievances" thing. The 1st Amendment really isn't about protecting the right of a congressman to only hear from a bunch of union thugs and party members singing "Hosanna", guy. Deal with it.
