QUOTE: the First Amendment supersedes the restrictive permit laws now being invoked against protesters. The First Amendment was designed to allow for disruption of business as usual. It is not a quiet and subdued amendment or right. Indeed, our nation's founding was a series of rowdy and intense protests, disrupting business as usual for tax collectors and mercenaries up and down the eastern seaboard.
Huffington Post May 25, 2011 How Can Congress Debate a Secret Law?
QUOTE: Legal scholars, law professors, advocacy groups, and the Congressional Research Service have all written interpretations of the Patriot Act and Americans can read any of these interpretations and decide whether they support or agree with them.

Huffington Post Jun 25, 2007 Fred Thompson: The Philip Morris Candidate
QUOTE: If Fred Thompson is elected president, he will be the first federally registered lobbyist to become Commander in Chief. ...

Huffington Post Jun 19, 2007 Attack On Mothers
QUOTE: Deliberately deceptive and fatally flawed studies [showing 'plausible deniability' of the link between the drug Thimerosal and autism] were authored by vaccine industry consultants and paid for by Thimerosal producers and published largely in compromised journals that neglected to disclose the myriad conflicts of their authors in violation of standard peer-review ethics .... The CDC and IOM base their defense of Thimerosal on these flimsy studies, their own formidable reputations, and their faith that journalists won’t take the time to critically read the science.
