The fourth of July is a day of great importance. In 1776 we fought as a people for the birth of a great new nation founded on the principles of self government and freedom from tyranny. Since then we have fought many wars and many lives were lost for the cause of freedom. My own family has fought for freedom. My great-great grandfather fought in the Revolutionary War, my grand-father fought in the Civil War, my father in WWI and WWII served as a air raid warden and Chaplain and I myself served in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam era. Now today I serve as a member of the American Legion Post #103 in Douglaston. In this republic, we have the right to speak our minds, the right of freedom of religion and the right to vote for those who will best represent our rights of freedom and justice for all. So in the next election, please get out and vote. Let not our ancestors, who have died for what most of us hold most dear, and that is freedom, to have not have died in vain. As it says in the Declaration of Independence,” We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator, with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” So, let freedom ring on the 4th of July. Remember this too: The 4th of July is not just a day off, for store sales and barbecues but a day of Independence from tyranny.
The Supreme Court has ruled that, “transmitting obscenity and child pornography, whether via the internet or other means, is…illegal under federal law for both adults and juveniles.”
-Reno v. ACLU, 521 U.S. 844
Obscenity is not protected under First Amendment rights to free speech. Violating obscenity law is a criminal offense. Distributing obscene material to children under the age of 16 is even more strictly prohibited, and is likewise punishable under federal law. However, in 44 states nationwide, as sexual education curriculum, children in pre-school through grade 12 are being exposed to inappropriate explicit material that fits the legal definition of obscene. The same material, if presented to minors by adults other than educators or librarians, would be deemed obscene, harmful, and treated as a criminal act punishable by federal law.
They Are Going To Rezone From Our Present 2 Story Limit To Accommodate 8 Story Building Zoning
New York JUN 24, 2023 —
This change in our zoning will change the landscape of our present entire park suburban neighborhoods.
Why are our civics and residents not being included in the planning?
There are many question that need to be addressed! We as residents, home owners, renters, seniors, veterans, local sports groups and businesses have purposely been excluded from our representatives, Donovans Office, the planning office of this project and all politicians who serve our area.
Over the past decade, communist and Marxist principles have been gaining traction in the United States, as evidenced by the far-left ideologies embraced by the Democratic Party and the destructive policies of the Biden administration. However, these ideologies are fundamentally incompatible with the values and principles that define American society. To prevent their spread, it is crucial that we take immediate steps to halt their encroachment.
This march toward communism can be partly attributed to a failed education system that promotes indoctrination over American values. Too many believe that the United States is inherently evil and corrupted by a capitalist economic system. This view ignores the fact that capitalism has lifted millions of people out of poverty and is responsible for much of the progress that we have made over the past two centuries.
On January 6, 2021 President Trump spoke to 100,000 supporters in Washington DC as the U.S. Congress convened to certify the 2020 presidential election results. He asked them to “peacefully” and “patriotically” march to the Capitol to “make our voices heard” to give “the weak Republicans the kind of pride and boldness they need to take back our country.” Although days before, he offered 10,000 federal National Guard troops to guard the Capitol, his offer was rejected by Speaker Pelosi and the Capitol Police. Before his speech was finished a small segment of the crowd broke off, headed down and breached the Capitol, while many entered unhindered by the undermanned Capitol Police.
While the number of murders and shootings in New York City has dropped, the number of robberies, burglaries, and other serious crimes has risen by 22% according to sources such as the New York Post and TheNew York Times. Despite these statistics, instead of dedicating himself to keeping the streets of New York safe, Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has chosen to squander our tax dollars and weaponize the criminal justice system against former President Trump, to fulfill a campaign promise and increase his chances of getting re-elected.
