anyone can skim the surface of the ACLU and get warm and fuzzy about 
their cloaking comments. Dig deeper!  Look at what they really do, the 
suits they bring before local courts nationwide that are not widely 
publicized... not what they say they do in a mission statement. They 
count on confusion and misdirection of the uniformed masses. There is 
nearly a century of track record to back this up... with a few cases to 
throw the hounds off the scent.

Diverting attention from the silliness of HB 139 was not the purpose of 
my comments as it took me 18 months of research on the ACLU and related 
topics for a project I am involved in.  Do not make the mistake of 
aligning with the ACLU on anything unless you believe communism and/or 
socialism is the best system for the US as a whole.  At that point you 
are my political enemy as I seek to preserve the very threads of freedom 
that many wisk away deliberately, or by ignorance, or by indifference.

HB139, or any version of it, must be defeated. I do not use wireless 
access due to security restrictions on most of what I do, but I believe 
the "for the children" mantra attached to it is a misrepresentation of 
what is really behind this movement and/or used to sway the ignorant.  I 
do not like porn and fight it every day, but this is bill is the wrong 
way to do so.
