Most Americans take our freedom of speech for granted - after all, such an idea seems like a basic and universal human rights. But be careful what you say in other countries: saying insulting things may just get you fined, land you in jail, or worse.

I loved your reply, Neil. You must have plenty of practice. Although, I think you meant "thought-cop".

How did I tacitly reinforce meaningless establishment taboo jargon? By pointing out the obvious racist element in your comment? In my opinion, the word "zio-puppet" is based on a paranoid delusion that a certain group of people are ruling the world, and when you use it, you throw your credibility to the four winds. It's a racist thing, in my opinion, and I am allowed to express my opinion here. Would you deny me that?

Plus, if you've read any of my previous posts, I'm more of a grammar nazi than a thought-cop.

"Racism"? Way to tacitly reinforce meaningless establishment taboo jargon, Ted. You sound like you'd make a good though-cop yourself.
