Freedom of Speech

On many occasions, I believe we take freedom of speech for granted. Yet, here is a FoxNews article on what happens, in Egypt, when one doesn't have that same freedom.

He [Abdel Kareem Nabil] was a vocal critic of conservative Muslims and in other posts described Mubarak's regime as a "symbol of dictatorship."

Now Nabil will be going away to prison for 4 years.

We moan and holler about the price of freedom, when in reality we could all be facing prison time if our country wasn't a Republic Democracy. Men and women fought for our freedoms today and the threat to freedom tomorrow.
