Just so you all know, Tim Lahrman is a great guy who has help many a probate abuse victim behind the scenes. He is hard working and dedicated.
What he sent me today was this:
Subject: Re: First Amendment
I do not disagree with one thing Ken advocates for or the positions he has taken. The 1st Amendment is a very interesting and powerful subject
I once wrote a letter to the only elected Probate Court Judge in Indiana and I opened my letter with the fact that the letter was presented in the spririt of the 1st Amendment and the right to freely exercise one’s right of political free speech freely exercised. I cited the applicable articles of the Indiana State Constitution and then I proceeded to tell this Judge he was a bully and that I did not mind calling him out as a bully. It was indeed a bold letter, some might think even a crazy man’s rant, but nonetheless I had every right to write the letter and say what I did. I simply called the guy out to be known as a notorious prick throughout the community and asked him if his parents were proud of him and raised him to be a prick — anyhow,
I have said some bold things to a few judges and authority figures over the years, it is never really enjoyable at the time and I often have no idea where the words come from when I open my mouth, the words just come out and I guess I have just been lucky —– I am always cautious and mindful not to make any threats, use fighting words and or assert any revenge —- The Indiana Supreme Court has held that telling a state actor to f*** themselves is free speech, it is a statement that illicits no response. Moral of the ruling, you can tell them to f***-off, just don’t add to the statement, what are you going to do about it? I love the 1st Amendment, its all a guy like me has —– and never would I care to have a Bar Association license, not in today’s world anyhow …
But my point is this —— what about the words we don’t hear from the people we are prohibited for associating with — and the words in the hearts and minds of those held in seclusion, secreted from society and from any opportunity to exercise their right to free expression, silenced and unheard from. What about their words? Is not this the real reason you find ourselves now arguing and fighting to express and protect your words ?? Why, if it was not for wanting to hear Mary’s words, and witness Mary exercise her 1st Amendment rights, none of us would even be here —- Brodsky included …..
