Poor freedom of speech. Its meaning has taken such a drubbing in the last few years.
I mean, originally, it was just "the government can't tell you what you can and can't say".
Then someone decided it meant "what you say should never have any consequences".
Then someone decided that it meant "nobody can deny you a soapbox".
Then someone decided that it meant "nobody can refuse to listen to you."
Now apparently it means "every program that could possibly access my soapbox MUST do so."
Tiger got to hunt,
Bird got to fly;
Lisper got to sit and wonder, (Y (Y Y))?
Tiger got to sleep,
Bird got to land;
Lisper got to tell himself he understand.
