We are losing some of our BRIGHTEST people because, for some INEXPLICABLE reason, this site has decided to become the exact OPPOSITE of what it started as: a PROGRESSIVE blog — a place for OPEN EXCHANGE.

You either believe in free speech or you don’t — but you cannot hold your hand out and wait for ADVERTISING money to drop into it, given to you as a “liberal” and staunch defender of “free speech” — while at the same time ARBITRARILY C.ENSORING a website that you claim is open for anyone from the public to participate in.
That means that you don’t get to SILENCE people simply because YOU do not like what they have to say.
You can’t GAG someone for citing facts and speaking truth that YOU don’t want others to know about — because that makes YOU a HYPOCRITE.
You either BELIEVE in free speech or you DON’T.
You PRACTICE what you PREACH or you DON’T — and if you don’t, you need to expect to be dealt the CONSEQUENCES. —————
EXPOSURE — as an entity that has been CORRUPTED by the same folks that corrupted our NATION.
This place is NO different than any other, and it should stop MARKETING itself as such.
Just as the republican party should call itself what it IS —
….just as people who DON’T STAND UP for what THEY BELIEVE IN should at least have the GUTS to call themselves as well.
