While it is reflexive for cowardly, weak and insecure people to attack the rights bestowed on us by the First Amendment, we should remember always that the rights at issue involve not only the right to speak, but also the right to hear.

Every time you restrict someone else’s right, you make a prison for yourself and limit your own right to receive information.  

A president who routinely attacks the free press and the First Amendment isn’t worthy of respect and doesn’t know the first thing about why this nation is the greatest in history. People who support the president’s war against their rights don’t deserve them.

I've turned in a work order to check the water for lead in Lynchburg.
