This is the new blog...CONFESSION ZERO


Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich yesterday said the country will be forced to reexamine freedom of speech to meet the threat of terrorism.
Gingrich, speaking at a Manchester awards banquet, said a "different set of rules" may be needed to reduce terrorists' ability to use the Internet and free speech to recruit and get out their message.

Upon that most infinite light
That rivals all freedoms
And turns the worlds eyes to envy
You’ve whirled our notice;
“A different set of rules”

Bits and pieces of wiry shadow,
Scrapped remnants of expression
Vex the grayed heavens
Standing agape at your scrutiny;
“A different set of rules.”

We’ve always known our tongue,
But your words have puffed it up
So it bulges into a monstrous dread
Now eyeing your languid intent;
“A different set of rules.”

Behind your liar’s mask,
With the sluggish thump
Of a guilt-ridden heart,
Oppression’s craving repeats,
“A different set of rules.”
“A different set of rules.”
“A different set of rules.”
“A different set of rules.”
