Your "speech", Steve, if you can call it speech at all, is pure and
unadulterated hate speech, through and through. Let me count thy

 - statement of not one, but at least 3 facts

 - the writing or vocalisation of an opinion, even, and especially
   when, that opinion is couched as a postulation/ possibility

 - questioning the (((Main Stream Media))) story line/ party line

 - responding to any article (or comment) on any violent thought
   crime website posing as a "news" or blog, in particular any site
   which is not one of [ CNN | MSNBC | FOX ]

 - use of the phrase "very powerful folks"

Seriously Steve, you might need to watch your back at this point.

Another strike and you might be subject to arrest, possibly by SWAT
team busting down your front door...

Good luck bro,
