Response to Octafish (Reply #7)

48. Let's read the First Amendment!

 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press;


Oh my! Did you see that?

Congress shall make no law


Well, now I'm confused. If what the First Amendment protects are speech, the press, religion, right to assembly, and petition from laws aimed at detracting them (in the context of speech and the press, censorship), that must mean Tommy is Congress!

Ha! Figured him out. That must be it, because that's the only way invoking the First Amendment when someone criticizes a journalist makes any sort of logical sense whatsoever.
