On this blog, Anita Bryant Part One, I’m going to type my feelings and I hope Anita Bryant is reading this, because I’m a fan.
I understand that Anita Bryant, has some political views that aren’t the same as most of the liberals in this country. That maybe true and I maybe offending a group which is only 10% of the whole population of USA and the rest of our planet, but I fell that she, like us all have the right to say what we want, for that’s why we fought England in The Revolutionary War, for freedom of speech.
It’s easy to agree with the popular opinion, but what about if you disagree with it, then what will happen. They’re was a time in history that slaves was a good thing, women could not vote, was an excellent idea, and having radio was the best in entertainment in the home, and television was a fad.
I believe that freedom of speech is a right, but there is a cost. For you and me, our views will go up in smoke, but a celebrity it will cost you, specially if you are on the wrong side of the liberals, who owns the press and the democrats(who views changes like the wind, just to get your votes). I promise myself that I won’t be political, but this one time I fell strong about.
I’m don with my opinion and I’m going to upload this blog and have a glass of orange juice and play all my Anita Bryant’s albums, and start on Part Two.
