    My intuition based on recent legal precedent tells me:

    -- the bill will not pass
    -- if the bill passes it will generate an avalanche of protest, and it will be overturned by courts

    I don't know who Alex Jones is and I don't listen to Rush, but neither of them are news from what I understand. Moreover, they are not the equivalent of yelling "fire" in a crowded theater. The question in every case, as stated by the USC, is whether the words used are used in such circumstances and are of such a nature as to create a clear and present danger that they will bring about the substantive evils that Congress has a right to prevent. Neither are a clear nor present danger.

    Personally, I like Andrew Wilkow.
