Today is 9/11 a very fateful date here in the USA, a date that has two meanings for me, and biggest reason why we should celebrate our freedom. We have Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Expression, Freedom of Religion and it is protected. Good or bad, dark or light you cannot support one with out the other, its the USA’s greatest strength and its greatest weakness… The one thing we should never, ever take for granted or be traded for falsehoods.
It is dumb, it is idiotic, it is the actions of an intolerant small minded Bigot, his actions totally disgust me and its nothing more than race bating. I hate any flag burning and mass book burning is a move towards a more frightening era, a direction I feel the USA is slowly slipping down too… Its nothing more than a sign of ignorance and frankly we as a country are better than this.

The Pastor, no matter how ignorant is within his rights as protected by the USA Constitution, and that my friends is the dark side of Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Expression… Ying and Yang, you cannot have light without the dark…
I suspect none of you know anything about Help Save Maryland, and trust me that is a good thing. HSM are a special interest group that concern themselves with dealing immigration issues, are affiliated with the Tea Party movement and protest big government (anything Rush Limburgh tells them thats bad), now if it was just that simple, they might actually be worth listening too, or worthy of satire.
However as an immigrant myself I find them scary and a throwback to another darker era. I’ve ran into a small group of them on the Baltimore Sun Forums, none of them are particularly pleasant and are represent everything that is bad about message boards.
