The First Amendment Anyone?

What about the First Amendment?

Do you believe in the First Amendment of the Constitution? Freedom of Speech? Apparently our President does not. Now that he thinks he has been exonerated from the charges of collusion and obstruction of justice, he is screaming at the top of his lungs that his detractors be burned at the stake for daring to question his behavior or criticize him. In the U.S., we have this little thing called the Constitution. The First Amendment of the Constitution guarantees we as citizens the protection of Freedom of Speech. No, it is not treasonous to criticize and question the President, unlike what Donald Trump would like for us to believe. He can’t send death squads after all the Democrats. Well, I guess he could but then we’d have to suspend the Constitution and call ourselves Venezuela. 

Welcome to lifeinpieces at usatheissues My little piece…

Welcome to lifeinpieces at usatheissues. My little piece of the Internet about the issues affecting us in the U.S. I’m a writer, but it’s my second career. I’m a former college professor of finance and business in general. I write about those topics, but I also write about politics, education, and other issues affecting all of us. I don’t want to do all the work! This blog is for you too. I want to hear from you. All opinions are welcome from all people. But there is a rule and I’m borrowing it from Quora. Be nice and respectful. No arguments. Healthy discussions are good. I don’t want to toss anyone out. If there is a topic you want to discuss, just let me know. You can email me at if you want to talk to me privately. So let’s get started!
