In Utah, the first arrest under ag gag laws has been made.

Why are such nasty, insipid laws always misnamed?

This doesn't gag agriculture. It gags reason.

Our old "friend" ALEC, is of course in the forefront, using it's usual phalanx of (R)epelican't legislators to do it's evil deeds....

So remember folks, photons that reflect off of "certain" corporations are wholly owned by that corporation, even those photons that cross public land and space.

Can you say thank you ALEC?

that is outrageous. Lawyers should be lining up to grab the lawsuits that should follow - and if that does not happen . . .

then I say that if the law no longer serves the people then it becomes the people's shackle and all that remains is lawlessness.

ALEC is just getting started with getting these kinds of laws enacted.

They can film us, but we can't film them back.

I'm sure these laws will be enforced for ANY corporation that wants them to.

I have a solution for that.

EVERYBODY!!

Take you cameras, big or small, still or video, to these sites and start snapping away!!

that is one solution - it will not punish those who advocate such madness but it would curb some of their nonsense . . .

As for myself,

I prefer punishment

Those stocks aren't big enough to handle all the (R)epelican'ts and ALEC advocates.

We'll need to build bigger ones.................:)
