Our First Amendment Rights?

Dateline: February 7, 2006

As many of you may already know, this day was yet another sad day for our country.

Prior to Bush's delivery of the State of the Union (that is CONSTITUTIONALLY required by Article II, Section III, Clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution), an unbelievable VIOLATION of said Constitution was taking place.....

Cindy Sheehan, noted war protestor and personal pain-in-the-ass to President Bush (in a good way) was hauled out of the gallery by Capitol Police, promptly arrested and taken to jail. In Ms. Sheehan's own words, here is what happened:
(see for full text)

To add insult to injury, another woman, Beverly Young, wife of U.S. Rep. Bill Young, R- Fla was also removed from the Capitol, but was NOT ARRESTED AND FACED NO CHARGES. This was bad enough... 2 women removed from the HOUSE OF THE PEOPLE for participating in the political process and expressing their views (as PROTECTED BY THE FIRST AMENDMENT), but now the question remains.....why was Ms. Sheehan treated more harshly than Mrs. Young? Was it the "message?"

"2245 Dead. How Many More?" vs. "Support Our Troops - Defening Our Freedom"

The difference in treatment was based on these simple words? Or was it based on the fact that Ms. Sheehan's message hit a little to close to home for our Dictator/President Bush?

My concern, here goes much deeper....and I will explore them in my next posting....

As always your comments are greatly appriciated!
