Quotation: Causing Controversy ~ wfaa.com

(Causing controversy? Causing controversy? There isn’t a healthy controversy on this subject already?

How many other things are wrong with this picture?

Since when do whole cities ~ in America, anyway, worry about “causing controversy”?

When did our libraries stop being bastions of free speech and broadly entertained public opinion?

What is happening in our land of free speech?)

“City of Keller orders Keller Public Library to remove post about Banned Books Week

A spokesperson says council members worried the post looked like the city was causing controversy after recent book debates in Keller ISD.”

    1. I was just meditating, after reading some of what you’ve shared about your life, that this must be an eerily familiar series of events for you.

      Not many people realize it, but our homeless are in exactly the same position legally that the German Jews were in right before World War II ~ a rising plethora of laws making their very existence illegal, with the only alternative being, literally, by definition, overnight or long term prison camps.

      For instance, it is not legal here to spend the night in ones vehicle ~ even on private property. I am a criminal simply by being alive and unable to access housing appropriate to my occupation ~ I can be remanded to either unsafe locations or “protective” confinement at any time.

      Even without the constant torments, this fact alone would be sufficient to make life in America not American, yes?
