First Amendment rights were recently overruled by the body of the Constitution. By the Supreme Court.
Trying to sell 3d printer gun parts fails the body of the Constitution. Common Defense.

Comment Typical Republican tatic: LIE (Score 0, Flamebait) 867

If they don't have any REAL evidence: LIE
It's been the Republican MO since Reagan. The man was a lying sack of shit, and some think he's a saint.
Reagan had the CIA be the middle man for Colombian drug lords to fund insurgents in Iran. All the while claiming there's a war on drugs.
There's an adage in psychology, if you tell a lie enough times you believe it's true. Nazi Germany is a perfect example.

as someone else noted. Trump looks a lot like Hitler.

The reason the conservatives don't want this is it loses their chance to censor!
Western companies will run the internet. Google, Apple, Microsoft, dare I say PornHub.
They only thrive in an open internet, especially the last. And the last is EXACTLY why Cruz is fighting it. He is lying if he says otherwise.
The corporate states will fight each other, but keeping it open will keep them from being locked out.

Submission + - Explosion at SpaceX launch facility at Cape Canaveral

oobayly writes: The Independent reports of an explosion at SpaceX's Cape Canveral launch facility. According to NASA they were testing one of the Falcon 9 rockets recovered from a barge landing.

Buildings several miles away were shook by the blast, and people nearby reported that multiple explosions continued for several minutes. After the explosion the sky was filled with dark smoke and sirens could be heard.

No comment from either SpaceX or Elon Musk yet, but it'll be interesting to see reaction from them (and SES), especially in light of their announcment regarding the upcoming SES 10 launch.
