BWW Review: PORN ROCK Offers Great Reminders of the Right to Freedom of Speech in AmericaBWW Review: PORN ROCK Offers Great Reminders of the Right to Freedom of Speech in America
by Shari Barrett - Jun 6, 2016

One of the basic rights of freedom in America is the right to free speech. This allows for anyone to state an opinion or belief whether or not anyone else likes what is being said - and hopefully to not be threatened or attacked. Certainly the ability to express yourself and believe in what you want to believe is a basic human right in American society.

Be and let be. Why is this always so impossible?. (more...)
