Based on her reported threats to sue persons over exercising their constitutional protected right to free speech. For a person who left the republican party to run as a gun toting independent we thought to ourselves oh no, this self proclaimed spokesperson could not be attempting to limit the speech of free Americans, could she? So we again went to her website to insure we read what we read yesterday accurately. This is what it says:
FREEDOM OF SPEECH: One of our most precious freedoms that we take for granted. As we witness governments in other countries preventing the free flow of information within their borders, we must remain vigilant in ensuring that our methods of communications remain open and free. Attempts by our government to control radio, television and the internet access must not be toleratedWhich is what we posted it said yesterday but considering the whims of politicos we thought we had better check again in case she took it down. We do note that the Constitution lists freedom of Speech as being Uno Numero in the constitution and Ms. Berryhill has it at a lowly #11 on her site.
However considering what we have learned today, we suggest she take "Freedom of Speech" off her website as we feel that we can document that, though she may beleive it applies to her, it would seem that she has a problem when others avail themselves of the same right. And though this separate from the post subject since we are offering her suggestions, then we would also suggest she buy a ticket to Mexico and get her jollies ordering the poor and impoverished around. Oh Lord, did that come out my out loud keyboard, Oh my goodness day.
O.K. so here is what we learned today about Herr Barryhill which is following up on her displeasure with the Patriot Guard we reported on yesterday (we are keeping the name of the individual private as he/she has already been harassed big time):
A PGR (Patriot Guard Rider) witnessed Herr Berryhill being video taped at at a KIA's funeral. He went home and asked his politically aware wife what Berryhill might be doing at a funeral being taped. His wife runs into Berryhill that afternoon and asked if being taped at the funeral was part of her campaign. His wife tells hem Berryhill, that she was seen by a PGR member at one of the fallens funerals being taped.
Apparently Berryhill follows his wife around wanting more information. She then calls the PGR State Captain and tells him this PGR member his telling all the PGR members that Berryhill was campaigning at the funeral (it is here we must interject an editors opinion. Berrymore is a candidate for a political office. That makes her a politician. Politicians running for office calculate their every move to place themselves in a favorable light with the voters. In other words, when they walk out of the house they are campaigning. Turn on a camera or light up a microphone and they immediately lose all sense of dignity whatever the occasion and revert to the political animals that they are).
On Sunday this individual contacted Berryhill and told her that he was not spreading word of her campaign among PGR and he felt she owed him and the PGR State Ride Captain an apology in writing.
Apparently she spent 45 minutes on the phone with him, in h his words "talking in circles". She said they we videoing for the family and the Blue Star moms and that they did not have to tell anybody about anything they were doing or why they were filming.
She also stated she was going to sue for defamation of character (lord forgive us we have to add, this time an editors question? Does one not first have to have a character before said character can be defamed? Hey this is just a question o.k. I mean like after all we are kind of dumb about these things).
Berryhill contacts this individual on Monday. Apparently some veteran sent her ( we shudder) a "nasty e-mail". She blames him for instigating this action. He states he cut her off requesting that she not call him again. But before hanging up she threatens to sue him, his wife and the PGR.
He states he then followed up the call with an e-mail stating he wants no more contact from her, but does want the written apology. He advised here that any more contact from her he would consider harassment, to which she replied "bring it on!' (Oh damn I'm lovin this lady more an more. Wonder if she would like to go for a motorcycle ride). Berryhill followed up with she would love to get he and his wife in depositions (Silly me Im still wondering if she would like to be fender fluff for a day).
Ah but you may ask, is that all. Well hell you ain't been reading this site to often then have you, of course there is more. But we will just keep that in our back pocket in case she wants to play deposition
with us wherein we seek "discovery" and ask for the financial records of the local blue star moms project and Berryhills campaign financial records. Not that we are in the least bit suggesting any financial misdealing on Berryhills part because we are not. Cause if we did think it we would say it because last time we checked it was not against the law in America to voice an opinion.
Yeah we know there is a thing about hate speech but we don't hate Herr Berryhill. In fact we admire the ability of a person who can talk out of both sides of their mouth to find anybody that would support their candidacy. But then again, as P.T. Barnum said, there is a sucker Born every minute.
But hears the gig o.k. now that we have had our little fun. This whole situation is sad. It is sad because it is a prime example of how "We the people" sucker ourselves.
I have talked to people who choose to vote for a particular individual based solely on whether or not
the person is for or against the second amendment, or for or against abortion, or for or against immigration, or whether or not the candidate rides a motorcycle and on and on.........
They look for one issue candidates and express support with out having any knowledge of how the rest of the candidates platform will affect them. Case in point, Berryhill makes a statement on her website referencing how lowering Corporate tax rates in Ireland are only 12.5% while in the U.S. they are 39.5%. As if Ireland's economic policy might be one the U.S. should emulate?
But before we decide whether or not we want to follow a European Countries path to Sovereign Default we may want to take a look at just how that rate seems to working out for Ireland: Is Ireland the next big bomb in the global debt crisis?
The problems facing this country are to complex and immense to be left in the hands of those we have already mistakenly placed them in. To place them in the hands of the likes of Berryhill who shows as little a grasp on economics as she does constitutional protections would border on traitorous negligence.
The ability to be present at a funeral does not qualify one to run for office!Add to Technorati Favorites
