Defending freedom of speech

Appropriate for this Fourth of July, the Discovery Institute has sent a letter and a petition with 7000 signatures to Ball State University, which is conducting a plainly biased inquisition of Professor Eric Hedin, who teaches a course on the philosophical and theological implications of science in the astronomy department.

The letter is here.

Great job. Let's keep up the pressure to defend Hedin. We can't let the bastards get him.


  1. An analogous situation would be a petition from the KKK in support of George Zimmerman.

  3. I realy need a gun to protect my family (like Crus) but my Government won't let me.

    So I will go to Kahnawkae

    Hey, I won't have to pay GST and PST! Cool!

  4. Pépé,

    "I realy need a gun to protect my family (like Crus) but my Government won't let me."
    Take a drive through to Ontario and you can have your FAC (Federal Permit) in less than 48 hours, mate. A written test (idiot proof) and issuance. At that point you can purchase a half decent semi auto rifle or a decent pump shotgun. Both will do for home defence.
    I would suggest buying your ammo somewhere rural, though. The big smoke (GTA in general) is all but dried up thanks to the big Fed buy ups in the states.
    Of course, you'll have to register the weapon on a Provincial Register in Quebec (the one that was scrapped on the federal level). Just tell them it is for target shooting (fun anyway) or hunting or whatever.
    I would also suggest some time at the range. Always good to learn how to use the tool before a job presents itself.
