Terrorism Law used on 82 yr-old



An 82yr old man was manhandled and ejected from the Labour party conference.....For heckling Foreign Secretary Jack Straw with ''That's a lie" while he was talking about Iraq, The Terrorism Act was also used on him so he could not re-enter the conference.

note: The elderly man has been a party member for more than 50 yrs after fleeing Nazi-Germany to the UK. Videoclip
here.

The Terrorism Act was used on him so he could not re-enter the conference? But isn't the Terrorism Act for Al Qaida or some other terrorist network?

I digress, the whole point is government knows best and you have to shut up, dissent is not allowed. I mean....It's not like our society has anything like the Starsi, Gestapo or very slowly becoming a human rights violating country, is it?

AlterNet: Blogs: The L-Files: Bad lefty bloggers

Nice to see some decent content for a change. FYI, I log on today and see that we've got a new feature, the 'Flag blog' button, which is inconveniently located between the 'Get Your Own Blog' and 'Next Blog' buttons so that we would presumably be getting some flags on error alone (although if one happens to notice it, you can unflag a blog) But that's a trivial matter. What concerns me is this: When a person visiting a blog clicks the "Flag?" button in the Blogger Navbar, it means they believe the content of the blog may be potentially offensive or illegal. We track the number of times a blog has been flagged as objectionable and use this information to determine what action is needed. This feature allows the blogging community as a whole to identify content they deem objectionable. Ok, see the problem with this? What's "objectionable." I'm guessing there are a good deal of people that would likely deem my blog to be objectionable; and there lies the problem: what is objectionable and what is subjective. Just my 2 cents, Nokia Ring Tone

Our country continually thinks of new ways to violate our rights. They just did away with the posse comitatus act paving the way for martial law. I feel like puking when I think about it.
