War On Reality Part 50 ; Tasered Student Shows How Free Speech Becomes Optional Extra

As millions watch the video of Andrew Meyer being tasered during a question and answer session with Senator John Kerry, people have said less about the limits on free speech than the voyeuristic aspects of the tape.

Yes, his capture and restraining plays well for a viral video, but the bigger picture is that he was held and taken away for asking questions.

Tell The Truthiness ; Last time anyone checked, Tim Russert or Martha Raddatz didn't get that type of treatment for asking questions, why should it be different for anyone else?

PS John Kerry said as he was being tackled he would answer his questions, but he never answered as everyone's attention was distracted.
