Free Speech Now Denied by Legislator towards Women Legislators

I was taught you never, ever disrespect your opponent or your teammates or your organization or your manager and never, ever your uniform. Ryne Sandberg

We need to demand the same from legislators.

Roe vs. Wade landmark decision on American women's right to choose, Michigan while hearing views on whether or not to pass restrictive legislation against abortion decided one woman's inclusion of the word "vagina" on the house floor the anatomically correct word by the way is restricted indefinitely from being able to speak on the house floor again. I have to wonder what he would have thought if someone said pussy...

Anyway, this is America we have the right to free speech as long as it is not to insight a riot or hateful crime.  Legislators cannot be sued for their views on the house floor either, so they so be able to express themselves without prissy men slang also known as fussily and excessively respectable in this case a male trying to quiet women like Lisa Brown whether she is a women or a democratic for speaking her mind.

Dear Mr. Majority Floor Leader Jim Stamas as a former service worker in the US Army and National Guard I appreciate your service there.  However, your behavior in this incident is deplorable perhaps you should plan on going back to flipping pizza in your parent's business where small town minds gather. (No offense to townee's of course, unless you voted for this guy); what happens on the house floor protects all state representatives from repercussion's such as you dished out; we can only wonder what your wife Marsha's life is like living with you, get a grip Ms. Brown was stating her view and you have no right to quiet women's voice's ever if you are going to hear a side be prepared for both or step down.

Freedom of expression - in particular, freedom of the press - guarantees popular participation in the decisions and actions of government, and popular participation is the essence of our democracy.
Corazon Aquino
Michigan has no democracy when it denies freedom of expression from it's own member's.

  1. It is John Stamas who should be stricken from the House floor. If freedom of speech is not protected for our legislators, then what hope do any of us have?

    1. I absolutely agree; if Stamas wants to prohibit the freedom of speech and to petition the Government for a redress of grievance as this State Rep. attempted to do - he should be charged possibly under USC § 1983 for violating her 1st amendment right to free speech in an assembly of her peers. § 1983 typically means a government offical acting under the color of law he misused his position as Speaker to quite someone who didn't agree him; it's wrong and citizens of Michigan and the United States should be outraged, if we let it slide it will continue to branch out and we will lose our individual rights to free speech.
