Hi there, this is Ed the IT guy with a message. It appears that there is some confusion over exactly how this blog works. Some people posting comments seem to think that Bernie Ward is in control of this blog, directly posting to it in violation of some kind of ban he might be under, restricting his use of the Internet. I am not sure of the legal specifics of such a ban, or if he is indeed under one or not. HOWEVER, "The Lion" does not do the posting, nor does he have editorial control over the content of this blog, as it is maintained entirely by The Lion of the Left SuperPAC, who post select writings on various issues of the day that we have come upon. Most of these do happen to be written by The Lion of the Left, and in exercising our freedom of speech, as the Supreme Court, in it's infinite wisdom has said SuperPACs are allowed to do, we at The Lion of the Left SuperPAC choose to post these well-thought out commentaries for those who may wish to read them. THE LION OF THE LEFT SUPERPAC DOES THIS ENTIRELY OF OUR OWN VOLITION, AND HAS NO DIRECT LINK WITH HIM, ALTHOUGH WE OFTEN CHOOSE TO POST WORDS HE MAY HAVE WRITTEN. This is entirely legal, as decided by the Supreme Court in the Citizens United case. Also just because a man is in jail, he does not lose the right to communicate with the outside world in the United States. As long as we continue to recieve his insightful words, we at The Lion of the Left SuperPAC will continue to exercise OUR freedom of speech and post them as we see fit.
As some of you may have noticed, there has been someone who, with entirely too much time on their hands, has decided to carry out a childish vendetta through our comments section. As a result, we at The Lion of the Left SuperPAC will be reviewing all comments BEFORE they are published. We have tried to keep this an open discussion by allowing comments to be published immediately, but this process has been abused by a very small group who are obsessed with repeatedly posting multiple copies of comments that are only personal attacks, having nothing to do with the topics being discussed, and so now comments will be moderated. We will not block comments merely for being in disagreement with a view posted here, as we encourage discussion of the issues, but comments that are only personal attacks will not make it to the blog for public viewing. ALSO: THERE IS NOT OR EVER WILL BE ADULT CONTENT ON THIS BLOG, AND ANY COMMENT WITH INAPPROPRIATE CONTENT WILL NOT BE PUBLISHED! Whoever you are, (and you know who you are), you have the freedom to start your own blog if you wish to spend so much of your time and energy defaming "The Lion", and discussing details of his case. "The Lion" has addressed the issue as you requested, and now we're on to other topics-case closed! Again, start your own blog if you wish; but this is not the place for that. Regrettably, this will cause somewhat of a delay for the rest of your comments to show up, but we will try to get any legitimate comments up as soon as possible. Thank the vast majority of you for your support, yours truly, Ed the IT Guy
