Welcome all Ldotters, old and new. If you are not yet registered do so, it takes but a minute, and join our annual virtual New Year´s party. 2012 has not been a terrific year. We want to hear from you about 2013 and what you are hoping for. If you have a covered dish. Put it on the buffet. Igor is behind the bar and will get you whatever your heart desires. Relax, you are among like minded friends.
Here´s to hoping we all keep our jobs, the unemployed find new jobs, and Obama can´t do too much damage, and therefore focuses on different ways to get applause and adulation for himself. It´s the only way to keep him busy yet without harm to ourselves.
Having some shrimp dumplings from Trader Joe´s and wonderful Korbel champagne.
I have high hopes for a "kick them where the sun don´t shine" year and will keep fingers crossed...and take back MY country. I can´t express the rage I really feel because my Irish temper would get me kicked out.
Happy New Year. I pray that in 2013 the Republicans in the House remember to read the Constitution and stand up to the Dictator-Wanna-Be Obozo and use the power of the purse to stifle this evil man and his agenda.
Boehner needs to stand up or stand aside.
My usual optimism is really being strained by the turn this country has taken and direction that was confirmed in November. God Help Us. Oh, and Obama Voters...you´re on your own, you´ll get NOTHING from me. Go ask your Uncle Sugar, I´m personally all tapped out.
Happy New Year......one day closer to the end of the Obama era. Remember the old Charlie Brown strip, he´s walking out of the house with the weight of the world on his shoulders. From inside comes a voice..."Have a good day Charlie Brown.........survive." That is my prayer every day for our wonderful country.......SURVIVE!
1) We are just over a week from breaking the record for the most number of consecutive days without a tornado fatality in the US (197). January is the safest month for tornadoes in the US, so we have a good chance.
HAPPY NEW YEAR to Lucianne, staff and every Ldotter!!!
And God bless America´s authentic patriots who have secured and maintained Life, Liberty and Justice for ALL throughout the history of the USA! We know that, ´´Freedom Isn´t Free,´´ but we cherish the bountiful blessings and possibilities which America´s Constitutional principles of respect for each individual´s inherent liberty provide.
God bless the USA and that personal Liberty for which it stands!
May this be a blessed and happy new year for all of us; and may health abound especially to our generous Hostess and her faithful staff.
To get our minds off the fake illnesses of various political actors in the news lately, I have put a platter of garlic bread sammiches at the end of the bar for those who forgot to eat hearty before clinking glasses in the new year. (Or for those who could get lost in a snow bank or a dense fog.)
How its done: 6 slices (purchased) frozen garlic bread--heat by directions on the package; top each with slice with dejon mustard, thinly sliced ham or turkey and some Swiss or Gruyère cheese. Toast lightly until cheese melts. Serve them on a pretty platter to mask how easy it is.
A most happy new year to the Lucianne staff and all of the posters, from the north Georgia mountains. This web page has helped me in so many ways. I pray that 2013 will be a better year, personally and politically.
I did a lot of cooking/baking over the holidays, so my contribution to the virtual buffet is a Honey Baked Ham -all I have to do is pick it up and pay for it!
I have made sweet tea and have fresh shrimp at the ready. The Redskins won and now more football tonite. Stay safe,warm, and cheerful. and thank each of you for your virtual friendship. God is still on His throne. Happy New Year from Northern Alabama.
Happy new year to all of our Ldotters friends. Here´s to our special friend Photoonist who seems to have given up the fight against this corrupt regime on November 6, 2012. I miss his posts and comments.

A happy, healthy and blessed new year from our house to all the Lucianne family, the staff and all Ldotters. This country wasn´t destroyed by the civil war. We survived Pearl Harbor and successfully fought the Germans and Japanese simultaneously. A skinny Chicago street hustler is going to be a piece of cake by comparison, even with an allied MSM and an army of uninformed voters. Keep the faith.
Happy New Year and good health to all. I consider myself lucky, I remember growing up in the great State of Vermont, before the communists moved in, I remember how great California was before jerry brown became governor in the 70’s and things started to erode, and I remember how wonderful America was when the Democratic Party was full of patriotic folks, before carter, clinton and this wretched administration set out to destroy this noble Experiment in Democracy. But I still have hope thanks to all who share this forum.
Lazy pizza spread for this clan, but a hot and lightly spiced Tom & Jerry for all fellow L-Dots who wish to imbibe! God Bless and keep you well and sustained in this New Year. May He be ever on the side of righteous men!
I´m going to join my cousin and his wife at the San Diego Zoo for an early dinner, along with a group of friends. We always enjoy the company of the animals on New Years. They can´t regurgitate left-wing talking points, and they´re safely confined to cages, where the Left in this country belong.
It looks like 2013 is starting out to be the year of the venomous snake, a king cobra perhaps. Fortunately, snakes eat their young, so maybe Harry Reid will devour Nancy Pelosi, who will in turn be gobbled up by Robert Gibbs. Not that I wish ill on anyone, mind you...
Happy New Year to the best people in the world (wide web)! I´ve made my annual New Year´s meat and veggie egg rolls as my contribution. I´m passing on any libations, though, as I may get to drive my daughter to the hospital to deliver a new granddaughter to our family at any moment! Her hubby is currently in Afghanistan, so I´m blessed to be his stand-in!
It´s been a tough year, but I´d just like to thank you all for your wit, wisdom and insight each and every day. I depend on it more than you can know. I wish you all of you lovely LDotters every blessing in 2013. Cheers!
Dear Ldotters, 2012 has been one heckuva year for me. I finally finished my divorce in July which went on for almost 3 1/2 years. I gave her everything there was to give money and property wise plus an extra $2,000.00 to top it off. It was wort every penny and more and I am happier now than ever in my life. My career as an Architect has hit bottom thanks to the economy. The good news is I went to school this month and now have a Security Guard license. I will continue on and become an armed guard and maybe I can protect children in schools in the future. Not sure what gun to buy. Thinking of a Sig Sauer 9mm, or the Smith & Wesson Sportsman 10mm. Probably will go with the 10. Bigger is better. Go ahead and make my day suckahs.... :-) 2013 is going to be awesome! Happy New Year to all!!!! JJ
Wishing all here at this special website a most Happy New Year. What ever would we do without our gracious Miss Lucianne? She and her wonderful staff are such a blessing each and every day. We WILL survive the next four years and am praying that our wonderful country will also. To Mama Elephant, congratulations and best wishes on the upcoming event. God bless.
Yes, 2012. I´m going to get very, very, very inebriated tonight. If we are still a democratic republic and the earth is not a radio-active ash heap in fourteen hundred and eighty days, would someone please awaken me and give me some black coffee?
Thank you Lucianne and Staff. You allow me to vent a lot of frustrations.
First, I am not a doctor, but many members of my family are. They all agree that the treatment of Hillary defies all medical logic. From her diagnosis of brain clot to the treatment of blood thinners. The usual result from such treatment is death. Sorry Hillary, but you know too much.
2013 begins my career as an author of "The Fighting Hawks at D-Day" an historical fiction to teach our kids the value of their freedom. Freedom isn´t free will no longer be just a slogan. One of the characters is my stepson who was killed in Iraq. Available on Amazon.
Please take time tonight to remember our military all over the globe fighting to keep us free. Please especially remember the families of the fallen in 2012. Tonight will be a very difficult night for them.
May God recognize that this country is still worth saving. There are still more of us than them.
Happy New Year fellow LDotters! It will be up to God, with our help, to save this great nation!
Happy New Year to all great LDotters, to our wonderful Hostess and her family, and to the Staff that helps keep this place on the ball.
Hagar has been busy shucking some delicious Chesapeake Bay oysters for us to enjoy as single fried oysters, all you can eat. If you prefer them raw, then we have those too. Blackeyed Peas are in the crockpot along with some yummy greens to round out the offerings. Sure hope someone else thought of homemade rolls and maybe some dessert....we got FAMILY to feed here!!
Some of you great folks join us the rest of the year on the Connection....we sure need all the good people we can get.
I am also sad to see Photoonist disappear. What an amazing contributor and, poof! gone? Hazymac signed off, and I´m sorry to see him go as well. I hope they come back in the new year along with others who I may not have kept tabs on.
As for me, well, I really don´t feel like celebrating anything this evening. Do we have anything to look forward to? Is survival something to look forward to. I wish there was a bigger fight I could join in to defeat the hijackers who have stolen our country.
I resolve to do my part to go Galt in the New Year as I do think that is the best we can do short of a full-on revolution. Each individual needs to work to undermine Obama at every turn by simply not playing along -- don´t create wealth and don´t pay tax by not creating wealth. Live frugally. Find enjoyment in denying the leftists their golden eggs, as they cut us open to get them all now.
Glad to have a place to go for New Year´s Eve, lol. We seem to have hit this timeframe where the college kids get to go out and the teenagers still need rides because they need rides home, but we stay home! Ugh. I will be attending a Watchnight service tonight at church - my first, so I´m curious - but I´ll be glad to have a drink with you all in the meantime!
Hi everyone! Here´s to a happy, healthy and hopeful 2013 -- no matter what anybody else says. I´m not particularly religious in the traditional western fashion, but I love when I hear Christians say "I´ve already read the last chapter, and we win." Way cool. THAT´S the mindset that will get us through this beastly fix we´re in.
It´s cool and clear out here in the SoCal desert. New Years Eve is amateur night -- second only to St. Paddy´s maybe -- so I´m diving for cover safe at home this evening. A couple cocktails (ok, a few) and some fun on the phone with my out-of-state homies, a few pop-ins with you guys, and poof! it´s 2013. Up at 5:30 for an early morning desert bikeride, and that´s that. Life is good. Bring it.
Also saw that on Election Day were Photoonist´s last post #36 and #53 ...
Hopefully he still lurks and will know how much we miss him... and maybe stop by and help me carry one of the magnum´s of bubbly from the back seat of Miss Lucianne´s pink caddy parked behind the diner... Stopped by our OC pizza bakery for three of their yummy white [extra] garlic and spinach pizzas, to keep with all y´all´s garlic theme ... and can carry them myself... And a virtual pound and a half of See´s dark chocolates for Miss Licianne and her team since she promised another song at midnight ... and a trip to see the Hop Bird at the Zoo at noon, which we hope will become a Blessed New Year´s Day tradition for all LDotters... xoxo
Another freaking new year the bamster et al will try and crush our spirit...our constitution...trash our church.... But hey L dotters and L sons will not let them win cheap.. Has been a gawdaful year.. The Hudson stopped 10 feet from the front door. Rex Ryan is still here ,ditto sanchez... Bloomy is more unhinged than ever ... Sooo here´s a stoli some , ice , a few olives.. Gotta hang tough..youse guys do make things bearable ...thank you Ms L , Igor all you brave hearts..
Happy New Year to all LDotters. I, too, am saddened by the departure of Photoonist on 6 November. His departure is a great loss to this forum. I only hope he may read our posts to learn how greatly he is missed. His comments were always the best.
Happy New Year to my Ldot family from south central PA. Sorry I already ate all the Brie. I received my latest Limbaugh Letter newsletter today. I´d like to share a little bit. The photo on the front is Rush wearing a tux. WOW! The back cover has an illustration by Mark Herron. It´s sad but at the same time deliriously funny. His creativity is suburb.
Known in all the fashionable circles for my signature dish, “M?O?N!’s Elegant Velveeta-Slathered Ritz Cracker,” I’ve elected to contribute a freshly prepared antique crystal tray of them to the festivities. Bon appétit! And may 2013 be all you wish it to be. ’12 couldn’tve been much worse.
Happy New Year to Lucianne and all Ldotters. god bless all of you.Here is hoping that we have a better year in 2013 than we have had since that person has been in the White House.God Bless and take care of all of us.
I wish dear Lucianne and her family, the incredibly dedicated, talented staff and all of you wonderful L-Dotters a very healthy and happy 2013. 2012 was a killer with the disastrous ruling on 0bamacare and the even more disastrous re-election of the malevolent 0bama and all that that brings. It´s been a tough one. I too wondered what happened to Photoonist. There is definitely a void without him and his posts.
I have been avoiding the news for the last few days. I´m sick of hearing "fiscal cliff" over and over again. There´s only so much you can tolerate. I don´t know what we would do without this port in the storm during these difficult times where we can all comisserate over the difficulties are we facing in our nation. My best to all of you for 2013. We will all persevere somehow.
Happy New Year to dear Lucianne, her incredible staff and all of the L.dotters who make the political climate bearable these days. A few of you have become personal friends, and my life is richer for knowing you!
Happy New Year to all the Ldotters and real Americans. We will over come and stand tall even as the US burns and crashes under Obama and the fiddling congress. Hang in there. tighten your belts and then we will get back our country. Happy New Year 2013 and keep your powder dry.
I have really missed Photoonist. I really hope he comes back but realize that he was very disappointed about Obama´s re-election. Happy New Year to all of you and for just being there. No matter what the results I still love my country. My 17 yr old refrig gave up today. I picked up the phone and in 2 hrs, I had a new refrig delivered and the old taken away. Where in the world could you do that? Remember that simple joys matter.
Happy New Year to all! Thank God for Lucianne and this site. Without it and each other we´d all be nuts! The new year isn´t starting off well but I guess there´s always hope. Hope all of you have a great year in spite of HIM!
God´s special blessings on our country in the year 2013 and years to come. Please, God, keep our country free. Let the dreams of the wonderful people in this country be realized and help us to be thankful for that. Happy New Year!!!!!!
Happy New Year to all the L dotters out there. Your wit is my constant source of sunshine. Your insights and love most appreciated. Hope for a healthy productive New Year. Thanks to Lucianne for being such a fantastic hostess.
Happy New Year, folks. Best to all as we enter our "Teens". The Galt idea is seeming more attractive all the time. I´ve been running the numbers and it just might be feasible with a little frugality and some good relationships with the right people. Maybe just 1/2 Galt for now. We´ll see.
Happy New Year, belove Ldotters, Ms. Lucianne, and all of the hard working staff that keep everything going.
2012 was a rough year between losing AB, then later, the election. It has been the wonderful people here that have made going forward with hope, possible. We´ve already been to Mass, and prayed for our country, our enlisted, and our loved ones. We must endure.
I left a wonderful selection of hot Hors d´oeuvres- including our family favorite, hot beef and horse radish toast points- on the bar. The wine is on it´s way.
Love to all, and prayers for all of those who have taken a vacation from this family. Until they return, we will hold them in our memories, and welcome them when they are back.
Spousal Unit Prime would not approve of my partaking in garlic anything. I must obey! I´m with #64 the pros are staying home!
Thank you all for keeping me frustrated and entertained throughout the year. I deeply appreciate each and every post. Your opinions matter to me in that it helps me see different viewpoints. I apologize in advance to they whom my words fail to convey my thoughts, it is not my intention to offend...but it is fun to see when I stick my other foot in my mouth.
I´ve been here a while as your grateful guest. I am not, nor will be one of the beautiful people or of the privileged class. Thank you for being such a gracious hostess.
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended

On Sunday night, I wrote a short post soliciting stories from my readers about how Obamacare has already immediately impacted their lives. I asked that all of these emails be directed to ObamacareMakesMeSick@Yahoo.com. I expected a response; I didn’t expect it to be quite so overwhelming. Over the last 24 hours, my inbox has been flooded with hundreds of emails. What you’ll read in this post represents a portion of them. I’m only one guy (with a fulltime job and twins) — I wasn’t able to go through every single message just yet. Some, I left out because the information
The recent theft of massive amounts of highly sensitive U.S. military equipment from Libya is far worse than previously thought, Fox News has learned, with raiders swiping hundreds of weapons that are now in the hands of militia groups aligned with terror organizations and the Muslim Brotherhood. The equipment, as Fox News previously reported, was used for training in Libya by U.S. Special Forces. The training team, which was funded by the Pentagon, has since been pulled, partly in response to the overnight raids last August. According to State Department and military sources, dozens of highly armored vehicles called GMV´s, provided
Details buried in the United Nations report on the Syrian chemical weapons attack point directly at elite military formations loyal to President Bashar al-Assad, some of the strongest findings to date that suggest the government gassed its own people. A weapons inspector collecting samples near Damascus. The inspectors, instructed to investigate the attack but not to assign blame, nonetheless listed the precise compass directions of flight for two rocket strikes that appeared to lead back toward the government’s elite redoubt in Damascus, Mount Qasioun, which overlooks and protects neighborhoods and Mr. Assad’s presidential palace and where his Republican Guard and the army’s
UNITED NATIONS – U.N. inspectors said Monday there was "clear and convincing evidence" that chemical weapons were used on a relatively large scale in an attack last month in Syria that killed hundreds of people.They said positive blood and urine specimens provided definitive evidence of exposure to the nerve agent sarin by a large proportion of the survivors assessed by investigators. These results were corroborated by clinical assessments, which documented symptoms and signs consistent with nerve agent exposure.The inspectors in a report said "the environmental, chemical and medical samples we have collected provide clear and convincing evidence that surface-to-surface rockets
(Article leads with chart) A Gallup poll conducted last month provides a powerful tribute to the wonders of Fox News. Gallup posed a wide-open question to more than 2,000 adults across the country: “Thinking about various sources of news available today, what would you say is your main source of news about current events in the U.S. and around the world?”The winner was “television” as a basket category, at 26 percent. The “Internet” took second place with 18 percent. And then came Fox News, at 8 percent.
“If you tell the truth you don’t have to remember anything.” -Mark Twain - It’s become clear to us that Ambassador Stevens was someone who cared deeply about his work to promote American diplomacy in Libya. He was one of four heroes who perished on September 11th, 2012 in the Benghazi attack.Stevens’ diary has never been made public, until now. It was first discovered and reported on, in brief, by CNN, but the news network soon caved in to outside pressure, most likely from President Obama’s staff, and ceased reporting on it all together.
Reacting to the news that the administration’s National Security Agency has been collecting the phone records of every American customer of at least one telephone service provider, the New York Times minced no words in a scathing editorial criticizing the practice and the lack of forthrightness from the White House. “The administration has now lost all credibility,” the Times editorial read. “Mr. Obama is proving the truism that the executive will use any power it is given and very likely abuse it.”
Credible sources indicate that the president of the United States watched in real time what might well be called the Benghazi snuff film.Among those sources is retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer. At the time of the assault, Shaffer relates, two U.S. drones were hovering to the consulate and recorded the final hours of the attack, which killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other brave Americans (From LCom Archive originally published November ´12)
Is this man simply expressing his beliefs or spewing bigotry?Either way, Phil Robertson, the patriarch in A&E´s "Duck Dynasty," won´t be duck calling on air anytime soon. The network suspended him after slamming gays in a magazine interview. In the January issue of GQ, Robertson said homosexuality is a sin and puts it in the same category as bestiality and promiscuity. "It seems like, to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a man´s anus. That´s just me. I´m just thinking: There´s more there! She´s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know
A&E broke its silence on Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson’s anti-gay comments late Wednesday. The cable network announced Robertson is off the hit show for the time being. The network issued the following statement to EW: “We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was hospitalized early Friday morning as a “precaution” after feeling ill, a spokesman said, adding that doctors concluded "everything is normal" after testing. “Early this morning, Senator Reid was not feeling well and as a precaution decided to go to the hospital. Tests have been conducted and everything is normal. He is alert, resting and feeling better,” spokesman Adam Jentleson said in a statement. "Doctors have asked that he remain in the hospital for observation so he will not be working today." The Senate is set to finish its business for the year on Friday.
For a few hours, it looked like Americans would quietly accept the suspension of popular “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson for his unfiltered opinions about sin, sex, gays and blacks in a magazine interview. But then, as if on cue, hundreds of thousands of fans of the openly Christian, duck-hunting businessman took to social networks and started their backlash. As of Thursday night, more than 1.1 million people “liked” the “Stand With Phil Robertson” Facebook page, while about the same number had clicked their support for another Facebook page called “Boycott A&E Until Phil Robertson Is Put Back On Duck
The suspension of Phil Robertson from A&E’s Duck Dynasty is outrageous in a nation that values freedom, according to social critic and openly gay, dissident feminist Camille Paglia. “I speak with authority here, because I was openly gay before the ‘Stonewall rebellion,’ when it cost you something to be so. And I personally feel as a libertarian that people have the right to free thought and free speech,” Paglia, a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, said on Laura Ingraham’s radio show Thursday. “In a democratic country, people have the right to be homophobic as well as they have
The Obama administration Thursday night significantly relaxed the rules of the health-care law for millions of consumers whose individual insurance policies have been canceled, saying they could buy bare-bones health plans or entirely avoid the requirement that most Americans have health insurance. The surprise announcement, four days before the Dec. 23 deadline for people to choose coverage that begins on Jan. 1, triggered an immediate backlash from the health insurance industry and raised new fairness questions about a law intended to promote affordable and comprehensive coverage. “This type of last-minute change will cause tremendous instability in the marketplace and lead
Olympic gold medalist Brian Boitano has announced he is gay. Boitano´s personal news comes two days after the figure skater was named to the official United States 2014 Sochi Olympics delegation by President Obama. "While I am proud to play a public role in representing the American Olympic Delegation as a former Olympic athlete, I have always reserved my private life for my family and friends and will continue to do so," Boitano, 50, said in an official statement. (Snip) Boitano joins tennis player Billie Jean King and Olympic ice hockey bronze medalist Caitlin Cahow as the third openly gay athlete
O ne year removed from re-election, President Obama´s approval rating has sunk to the lowest level of his presidency. Furthermore, Obama´s popularity among the Democratic Party base — whose rejuvenated support proved crucial last November — took a huge hit this past year. Only 54 percent of self-described liberals "very strongly" approve of Obama´s job performance, according to a Pew survey released this week. That´s down from an all-time high of nearly 90 percent, and a significant decline from the 73 percent who strongly approved of the president back in June. Why the steep drop? Well, the first year of Obama´s second term
Hours after we reported that Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson dropped some illogical “logic” on homosexuality during his GQ interview, his home network A&E decided to indefinitely suspend him from the show. While Robertson’s comments were hilariously ignorant, they were predictable — especially given his family’s socially-conservative, Bible-loving image. Suspending the lead character for his wholly predictable comments is not only an overreaction but a gross misstep. To recap: The Duck Commander patriarch remarked to the men’s magazine that homosexuality is on par with bestiality, and used fifth-grade “logic” to imply that homosexual men should give up their ways of choosing a
A&E has placed Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson on indefinite hiatus following anti-gay remarks he made in a recent profile in GQ. "We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty," A&E said in a statement. "His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely." The news comes after Robertson compared homosexuality to bestiality in an interview
The Ivy-League educated half-brother of President Obama is publishing his autobiography in which he makes the shocking claim their father dished out alcohol-fueled beatings to him and his mother and in one terrifying instance held a knife to her throat. Mark Obama Ndesandjo, 48, also uses his new book to set the U.S. president straight on inaccuracies he claims exist in his best-selling 1995 memoir Dreams From My Father and confirms they have never seen eye-to-eye because ´Barack thought I was too white and I thought he was too black.´ The self-published book, Cultures: My Odyssey of Self-Discovery, which will be
At 9:30 a.m. on December 19th, CNN´s Piers Morgan tweeted that the First Amendment "shouldn´t protect vile bigots" like Phil Robertson. And while making this claim, Morgan also reiterated his position that the Second Amendment "shouldn´t protect assault rifle devotees." Twitchy.com posted Morgan´s tweet, as well as one he sent six minutes earlier in he which typed, "Phil Robertson is not a ´victim of political correctness.´ He´s a victim of his own repulsively racist, homophobic bigotry." When defenders of Robertson´s right to speak his mind took to Twitter to tell Morgan how the First Amendment works, Morgan hedged himself in by tweeting, "Calm
