    lsj.com being dishonest

    http://www.lansingstatejournal.com/a...xt%7CFRONTPAGE

    This is an "article" about CADL TRO against MOC. If you goto the story page, and scroll down to the bottom you can click on comments, right there it shows that more than one hundred comments have been made. Once you click on it to actually read the comments there is about 30, they are deleting the ones they don't like, and banning some members that leave the truth. The only comments that are left (you can dig for other ones) are all pro CADL. WOW talk about integrity.

    If I somehow got this wrong someone let me know.

    I hope I am wrong, but it doesn't look like it.

    This is a common practice among sites on the internet. Would not surprise me at all.

    The locals call it the Lansing State Urinal for a reason.
    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    No surprise here. .. Milive does the same thing at times.

    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    Seems like the first amendment protects freedom of the press, so I can't argue with press agencies having the right to partake in various types of ****** baggery. Just makes it all the more important to seek out the news agencies which respect both themselves and their audience.
    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    Did you add up the "replies" that are actually nested in the comments? I noticed some comments had 12-13 replies which were shown only when you clicked on the comment. I have neither the time nor inclination to do so, but if you really want to know, just add them up.
    Also, would an airsoft "gun" be listed under a weapon? The state of Michigan does not consider it one. Not advocating the carrying of airsoft guns here, just noticed it was mentioned in the article.

    Giving up our liberties for safety is the one sure way to let the violent among us win.

    "Though defensive violence will always be a 'sad necessity' in the eyes of men of principle, it would be still more unfortunate if wrongdoers should dominate just men." -Saint Augustine
