I am always proud of being the son of my great democratic motherland---the United States of America. This is a country of authorizing broadest democracy to the overwhelming majority of the people. This is a country of maximizing the right of expressing freely for its kind hard-working people. However, when the words “A Man Charged With Threatening Obama in Web Poem.” jumped into my eyes, my heart broke up completely and I felt ashamed for my country.
Johnny Logan Spencer, a 27 years old young man, was prosecuted for writing a poem called “The Sniper” two years ago which described a sniper shot a black tyrant. Spencer, who was arrested by the Secret Service and taken into custody, may face an imprisonment of 15years at the most. How can a job-loser make a threat to our great president Obama’s life? How can our country take an action toward a man even lacking the strength to truss up a chicken.? Why does a guy take no action of assassinating the president in two years if he really bore such an intention? Where is the freedom of expression which is protected by the Constitution of The United States of America?
We always broadcast toward the whole world that we have the soundest legislation to protect people’s freedom of expression and we are a people of sharing the utmost human rights. I also bear such an opinion in my mind and feel proud of living in such a superior country. Nonetheless, after I read the Constitution of The United States of America, it is not difficult to find out that there is a lot of confinement to the freedom of expression. For example, it specifies that people have no freedom of assembly and association which results in traffic jam and violation of traffic regulations. What’s more, the constitution imposes restriction on the army and the criminals’ freedom of expression. What is worth mentioning is that even the candidate’s freedom of expression and action in a press conference is under confinement. That is why Johnny Logan Spencer was prosecuted by the federal for the crimes of threatening the president and racialism, which means that the so-called freedom will sell our rights away in the name of silencing those who disagree with the government.
In the world affairs, we, the United States of America, appeal for the real human rights for the world people and are consecutively dedicated to promote the enterprises of human rights. Those countries who are underperformers of freedom of expression are criticized and attacked by our government. We said people in those countries have no rights of vote, expression, assembly, association and so on. I would say that so do our country. How can we do so as the developing country do? How can we use double standards to measure the situation of people’s freedom and rights of expression toward our country and others respectively?

Is this a C vs E question?


-------
Pogge:” This is the volume of a sphere with a 62 kilometer (about 39 miles) radius, which is considerably smaller than the 2,000 mile radius of the Earth.”
Wikipedia:” For Earth, the mean radius is 6,371.009 km(≈3,958.761 mi; ≈3,440.069 nmi).”
Wisp to Lester (on Pogge): Do you admit he was wrong about the basics?
Lester: No
