…The decisive changes on the Supreme Court started in June, when Justice Kennedy resigned – he was 72 and had grown weary of the unrelenting responsibility. His replacement – another young liberal Obama appointment – gave a 5-4 majority to justices who were eager to
create laws from the bench…
…Then in August 2009, two months after Kennedy resigned, Justice Scalia unexpectedly announced his resignation due to health reasons and by October 2009 another Obama appointment took his oath and joined the court…

I really hate teases like this.

(18) Pornography: ‘The land of the free’?
It’s almost impossible to keep children from
seeing pornography. The Supreme Court in 2011 nullified all Federal Communications Commission restrictions on obscene speech or visual content in radio and television broadcasts. As a result, television programs at all hours of the day contain explicit portrayals of sexual acts…

Wouldn't the ending of goverment restrictions be more 'freedom'?

That's usually how it works in wingnut land.

#7 is partially right, but not because of any legislation. It is contrary to the code of ethics of counselors.

I am surprised that FOTF failed to foresee that Obama would take away the freedoms of good Christians by unleashing a wave of voter "photo ID" laws in the states under the guise of preventing "voter fraud", and that if you didn't have the proper papers....oh wait.
