Not much to do with homesteading until "they/them" arrive at your place...
As a nation we now hold secret prisoners, as a nation we invaded a
country half way around the world and as a nation we have locked up a
reporter who was counting on the First Amendment to protect her.
The thought of having "they/them" show up at your homestead is sort
of far fetched isn't it?
CPJ Delegation, Including Brokaw, Visits Judith Miller
>>In calling for Miller's immediate release, the statement noted
that more than 120 journalists were imprisoned around the world at
the end of 2004, "primarily in China, Cuba, Eritrea, and other
countries where journalists are frequently locked up in the course of
practicing their profession."
By jailing Miller, the statement said, "the U.S. government is not
only undermining the ability of a free press to function in this
country but also sending a signal to other governments that such a
course is acceptable when dealing with journalists of whose actions
they do not approve."<<
